We liked the old Xtreme MT that Pro Comp used to make. We've put them on a couple different trucks in the past and they've served us well with little to gripe about … save for one issue: poor tread wear. The traction they got was great, and it wasn't too bad of a rain tire (for a mud-terrain), but they sure did get loud when they wore out. Pro Comp saw an opportunity to improve a current product, and that's why we now have the Xtreme MT2s available for our off-roading pleasures.
Pro Comp's new Xtreme Mud Terrain looks almost identical to its predecessor, but there are some differences in the improved carcass, the two-step tread design that improves stability and promotes better tire wear, and the stickier silica-injected tread compound that quickly proved it's a step up in evolution.
To ensure that customers will get great life out of these new Xtreme MT2s, Pro Comp has even put a 40,000-mile treadwear warranty on this tire.
Initial drives on the tire are positive. We don't have enough miles on them yet to wear the tread halfway out, but we'll let you know how they hold up in our “Clipboard: Long-Term Updates” section. We also haven't had any rain since mounting the Xtreme MT2s on the Series 7032 wheels, so we unfortunately can't tell you how wet-weather traction fares yet, but our dry off-roading trips have been pleasant. There is less noise than with the old versions, and the soft tread hasn't prematurely peeled after squirreling through tight canyon roads.
If you liked the Xtreme MT, you'll love the new Xtreme MT2.
