    Default Nexen Roadian MTX tires

    In July I was invited to a small off road event, in Big Bear California one of 5 guests. It was put on by Nexen Tires (https://nexentiresusa.com) The idea was to show off the Nexen Roadian MTX to some people with a Internet footprint. I was there due to the Jeep Talk Show.

    We took 4 Jeeps, one was Don Alexander's personal JKU, a JKU rental, a JK rental, and a TJ rental, all on 37" Nexen Roadian MTX tires. I selected the TJ. The TJ was on Rockjock 60's, antirock sway bars front and rear, ARB locked front and rear. There was literally no where I couldn't go and no where I felt unsafe. It was a lot like driving in Houston rush hour traffic, you know when you accidentally drive over a Prius or two.

    I have no experience on rocks, well boulders, like the ones on the John Bull trail. The TJ handled it easily. The others had much more rock crawling experience than I and they were all amazed at how well the Nexen Roadian MTX's handled the trails.

    Initially I was promised a free set of Roadian's for my Jeep but I ran out of time before this off road event Oct 25-27. My KM2s needed to be replaced, and this was an excellent opportunity to see how well these Roadians worked on my Jeep.

    So last Thursday I ordered a set of 5 33x12.5x15 online and had them shipped to a local tire store. It was less than 24 hours to have them shipped free to the store. 999.95, 86 in taxes plus 125 to install. Yeah 125, NTB aholes.

    At least on road these tires have really impressed me. Quite for a mud terrain and very easy and smooth to drive on. All tires are smooth when you first get them right? Well I don't recall this much of a difference when I got my KM's or KM2's. So far very impressed and very happy.

    Crap like NTB pulls is one of the reasons i bought manual tire changer and a bubble balancer. Ill just do it myself.

    NTB is also crooked as hell around here. They tried to upsell my wife when she was in getting a tire patched on a sunday (discount, who i prefer to deal with was closed) for a new air filter and cabin filter claiming "theyre very dirty and need replaced" except for i had just changed them a week prior per my maintenance schedule.
