Moreover, the aggressive tread elements maximize the Buckshot’s performance on muddy and rocky terrains, in addition to an aggressive sidewall that accentuates the tire’s rugged appearance. 

Furthermore, the tire has staggered shoulder blocks that enhance its traction on rough terrain, while the tread blocks are pinned for studs to give you reliable traction on ice. The Maxxis Buckshot Mudder 2 is also equipped with stone and mud ejectors that keep it clean all the time.

Maxxis Buckshot Mudder 2 Tire Customer Review

Steve Benjamin says: “I love going on camping trips with my Wrangler a few times a month, but my all-season tires just couldn’t stand the weary roads that lead to the camping site. I decided to invest in a set of the Mudder 2 off-road tires, and boy, it makes one hell of a difference. These tires can go through any type of terrain, be it muddy or rocky. What’s even cooler is that I don’t have to clean them, thanks to the mud and rock ejectors. I definitely recommend this tire model for anyone looking for dependable off-road performance.”

Greg Whitman says: “I wish I came across the Maxxis Mudder 2 earlier than that before my all-season tires wore out. I’ve been rocking a set of these tires for several months now, and I don’t think I have to worry about cutting them, no matter what the road condition is. This tire provides some serious traction without sacrificing comfort. The only problem is that it’s not so quiet, but I can barely notice the noise with my car stereo turned on anyway.
