Ok I need some opinions, I need some new tires for my new wheels. What I am looking at is the MAXXIS MAXX CROSS IT INTERMEDIATE TERRAINS or the MAXXIS MAXX CROSS HARD TERRAINS. I need some feedback on which ones to get. I have a WR450 With alot of mods. I ride everything from trails to open fields to rock beds to sand. And I have the Rampart poker run to look forward to which I hear can be quite muddy so what do ya all think I should go with? Thanks :crazy: :ride: :ride:

Get a 120/100/18 Rear Maxxis IT and run it around 13.5-14 PSI w/ HD tubes. You'll like it. The front is a bit unnerving in the soft stuff but do-able.

Totally agree with this assesment. The Rear IT, Dez version is really good and long lasting.

The front is squirrely on anything other than hard pack, it wiggles and hunts in sand and pebbles really badly and is even kookier in mud.

IT for the rear and SI for the front its the perfect tire combination and you cant beat it for the price.

FYI Rampart is hardpack with loose gravel. Don't worry about mud.
