Review of the Maxxis Buckshot Mudder

The Maxxis Buckshot Mudder is an aggressive, rugged, durable steel belted radial tire designed for extreme conditions.  Maxxis has taken the knowledge of 30 years experience and put it into what makes up the MT-754 Buckshot Mudder.  The moderately aggressive tread pattern of the Buckshot Mudder is made up of large siped lugs and widely separated deep self-cleaning voids. 

In sand these tires perform well.  With a more milder aggressiveness to its tread design, the Buckshot Mudder run sand in good form and propel and float rather than dig.  Lateral traction is high providing good lateral stability.  This is especially true of the wider tread versions.

In the mud the Buckshot Mudder rip through soupy mud better than many mud terrain Tires.  Mild tire spin and the lug voids self-clean efficiently, aided in part by the stepped lug design.

In the snow, wet or powder, the Buckshot Mudder excel finding traction as then dig and fling through the snow.

For street time, these radial tires are factory balanced and checked for roundness before shipping. Road noise is minimal to moderate but acceptable and better than average for a Mud Terrain.

Maxxis News
Asian Cross Country Rally

The Maxxis-sponsored Ford Escape Team conquered Asia’s most challenging terrain to claim victory in the 2002 Asian Cross Country Rally! The two-vehicle team earned the top two spots in the T3 Prototype Cross Country Class: Arthur Chen and Johnny Yen won the championship, with Kenny Cheng and Lihuang Lui close behind for 2nd Place.

Driving Ford Escapes equipped with Maxxis Buckshot Mudders, the team overcame constantly changing terrain through forests and jungles, including mud, rocks, caves and grass—all made worse by heavy rain. The 2,500 kilometer, six-day journey took them throughout Thailand before ending in Cambodia August 8th. The rally is said to be the toughest off-road competition in Asia.

Knowing they would encounter a wide range of conditions, the Ford team chose the Maxxis Buckshot Mudder, which is designed to outperform the competition in such situations. Most importantly, the Buckshot Mudder provides traction in off-road and wet conditions and has a strong, reinforced casing which offers puncture resistance and durability.

For more information on the Buckshot Mudder, or to see photos from the rally, please visit Maxxis.com

  I drive a 1993 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 with a straight six. I got the truck from my dad about six months ago. He bought a set of Buckshots 4 years ago and we have never looked back. These are by far the BEST tires I have ever used. Mud, snow, swamp, dry/wet pavement, it doesn't matter, we never have a problem getting out of what we get in. We wore our first set down to near slicks and they still got us through the thickest stuff we could find in Ohio. We just put on the second set of Buckshots 3 months ago and have been wearing them ever since. Sweet tires!
-Chad E
I just bought my 2nd set of Buckshot Mudders and I'm very happy with the product. I have had many sets of other mud tires in the past, but these outperform them in all situations from mud to rocks to wet/dry pavment. This is the only tire for me and my rig. Keep up the good work as I am now a lifetime customer and also a salesman for your tires to any and all who ask me about my tires. Great tire!
-Keith S
I own an 84 Bronco 2 mud truck with a set of 235/75/15 Buckshot Mudders on it. They take me everywhere I wanna go. It is the best mud tire in my mind and if you want a tire that doesn't quit until you do slap a set on your rig today.
-Jason M
I went through three sets of LT265/75/R16, 6PL Buckshots on my 01 Dodge Ram 1500. For everything short of hardcore rock crawling, these tires are as good as it gets. I used these tires in rocky desert terrain. They have a perfect compound that doesn't shred and chunk out in the rocks, they are incredible in the snow, and have wonderful drivability, and wear characteristics on pavement.
