    MT-762 Bighorn 275/70R17

    Very happy with the performance on the dirt/mud of these, very good on wet tar compared to the Buckshots I had.
    I run mine at 34psi for allround use
    Negative for me is road noise, a little bit noisy for my likeing.

    10000 km on them and wear is good, should hopefully get around 80k

    I would buy these again as @ $270 a tyre it was a bargain for a 17" set

    I've run the Bighorns before, easily the best tyre for the Money\style out there as far as i'm concerned.

    I got acceptable K's from them, hook up very well compared to oter M\T's, i found them good on Road, but they did get noisy as they wore down, not Pede noisy though, this was in the 33x12.5x15 size

    Also running 12.5R33x15 Bighorns. Tough looking tyres and very impressive in the mud/rocks. I find I need to drop them lower - ie 10 PSI instead of 15 - than my Coopers & Pro Comps in the sand to get the same result. They are noisy on the black stuff but no worse than my Cooper ST's and you expect that with such an aggressiv tread. Wear has been good done about 10 thou with less than 10% wear. I wouldn't expect to get more than 60-70 thou out of a mud tyre in every day use.

    I had 33x12.5x15 buckshots on mine when I bought it....they were all but wornout and my god the noise was ear splitting....that said, the previous owner reckoned they were good value and was going to put them on again if he was keeping the truck.
    My mum has Maxxis 751 Bravos on her GQ. seems happy enough with them....I sorta wish I'd got them too but wanted a bit more of an offroad spec all terrain tyre, considered the MT753 Bravo(far rigth in the pic in first post) but ended up going to Yoko's instead and paid 50% more. probably should have saved my bucks and gone wit the 751 as so far i've managed to engage 4wd once that I really needed it.
    Cheers, Roo.

    I have Bravos on my GU (they were on when i bought it) its my 1st 4x4 so nothing to compare them with but they seem pretty quiet on the road and once i deflated them to 15psi they pulled the trailer all over the beach just fine. I guess they would soon run out of grip in sticky mud though.

    had 33 inch bighorns on my old Jeep and they were a great tyre, done 30k on them and still lots of tread left. Great offroad too but noisy on the road. Am looking to put these on my Mav when I eventually get the cash together.
