I had 17" 235/45 Maxxis things on my XT and I hated them.. lost traction much too easily. They were the only tyre I could generate massive wheelspin off the line with (usually one, sometimes both wheels). but they made good smoke so I didn't have to put up with them long :)

Luckily mines a EF so it is gutless and wont have to worry bout that lol. I got so many good response from ppl using them that i still feel comfortable getting them.

Wheels did a tyre test a little while back and it came up fairly well. I think they are a soft compound, so good grip, but low tyre life. It was the MA-Z1 model, dont know about the others.

Yeh the maz-1 are the wheels rated highly by wheels mag not the mav-1. Maz-1's are a bit more expensive. Only got $300 4 tyres so just get 2 mav'1's.
