Maxxis Razr MT772 conquers Australia’s beaten paths; Wins 2020 Tyre Test Award
Published On 25-Feb-2020
It is the second consecutive win for Maxxix tyres in the 4×4 Australia 2020 Tyre Test
People admire an excellent chunky set of mud terrains as much as the next tucked up the wagon. After all, why won’t they? These tyres are the final piece of the rough road puzzle that helps in the modified rig to reach where required without any trouble.
To test their tyres, Maxxis has gone for mud terrains, the most serious of the off-road tyres for major adventure. Needless to say, It was the time when they wanted to prove their mettle during this exhaustive test.
Testing a tyre across the enormous surfaces in a country like Australia was a huge thing. It is because off-roading is a comprehensive term - it can mean snow, mud, rocks and other surfaces like grass and Australia is full of that. Maxxis tyres emerged champion of the 4x4 Australia Tyre Test last year also.
To find out the best tyre of 2020, 4x4 magazine reached Pheasant wood circuit south of Sydney with former racing champion Paul Stokell, who tested the tyre on a Ford Everest.
They started with the base model having the 17-inch wheels which provided us access to a usual 365/65 R17 tyre size. Tyres of participating brands were tested through wet and dry braking assessments, where the car was on maximum braking from 100km/h to a standstill.
Furthermore, tests like three dry cornering tests and two wet cornering tests were conducted to evaluate how long it took the car through the curve.
Starting from wet braking that stopped from at least 1.3m shorter than all rivals, showed impressive results in the wet corning as well. It helped Stokell to push harder, which in turn scrabbled through the corner better.
In addition to that Maxxis Razr MT772 was also among the top in protecting its outer edges after a solid thrashing that no doubt added non-scoring goodness to its repertoire. Overall in numbers (100-0KM/H) the Dry Braking was 47.93m, Wet Braking 52.51m, Dry Corning 15.77S, and Wet Cornering 11.28S.
As a brand, they outclassed the others with best in class performance. This makes two wins for Maxxis in a row at 4x4 Tyre Test Australia.
