PSA Maxxis Bighorn 255 85 on sale for $156 today

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Maxxis-MT...Tire/615505727

I picked up 5 of them shipped for $851 ($100 cheaper than the next cheapest site)



The longer story - Iíve been shopping for the last week comparing prices on 255 85 tires and I swear to god the cheapest I saw this tire was $178. Even as of yesterday Walmart did not have them this cheap.

Then tonight I found it at Walmart.com through a google shopping ad for only for $156.

If you go through their normal site itís $210 per tire, so this is quite a bit cheaper.

If youíre in the market pull the trigger!

I tried to order them, but Walmart.com wont accept either of my cards ...


Edit: I was able to use PayPal attaches to the same card just fine. Thanks for the heads up. I was debating between these and Swamper TsL 34x10.5, but this price made it an easy decision.

I am very happy with my bighorns. I do still get stuck, but only cause I am an idiot. There is no fixing that. Great in sand, too.

Good to hear! I read extensively and it was up between this and Dick Cepek Extreme Country.

I ended up with these because almost everyone had great things to say about them.

Also it appears the diameter is above 33Ē where the Extreme country is actually 32.8Ē - a slight difference sure.

Itís also load range D which I wanted, although the Dick Cepek is E, the 2-ply sidewall apparently gives a softer ride.

The Dickís do weigh less (itís been reported 49lbs to 51 lbs) but the bighorns only weigh slightly more at 53.

Then of course the $300 price difference is the cherry on top.

Itís been my experience that load range D is a bit much for these 4runners and the ride suffers.
I couldnít imagine a load range E on a 3rd gen. Probably feel like you had solid tires on it at street pressures.

Agree completely - I donít even want a mud terrain. Iíd have bought a Falken at3w in 255/85 load C in a heartbeat.

I know there are a few ATís in 255 but the tread pattern is a little old or itís a commercial pattern for work trucks, and I want a little bit of steeze.

Thereís just not much selection in this size. I probably wonít notice much of a difference in ride anyway, mine already pretty stiff.

Got them in yesterday and mounted today. They look great on my new VTX Rogue 16Ēs

Because of the offset of the wheels and the 8Ē rim the tires donít look too skinny at all and are flush with the limited flares. I love it.





The 16Ēs have 4.00 backspacing and just barely clear the tundra 199mm brakes.

I had to go to 3 different tire shops because the first 2 couldnít get the bead of the tire onto the wheel and ****ed up one of my wheels pretty good.

Finally got them to Whiteyís Tire today and they got them on, but it took them a lot of force.

Iím getting a little bit of rub while turning, I had to get to the office but Iíll take a look tonight and see if I need to hammer my pinch weld and maybe the rear inside of the flares.

Then to a real alignment shop to see if they can set my caster to get the tires more forward. (firestone here in Brooklyn is braindead, so my lifetime alignment there is a waste)

Remove the bottommost screws from the flares and hammered the pinch weld flat. Also cut the fender liner and the bottom inside of the flare a bit

Fingers crossed I think that might have done it. I know IFS doesnít have much travel up front, so I cranked the wheel to the right and drove up the curb for some baby flex. It didnít rub!
