    STI Outback Max Tires

    Unveiled at the recent Mud Nationals, the new STI Outback Max tire is an expansion of the Outback tire lineup. According to STI, the Outback Max delivers measurable performance gains over existing mud tires. The new Outback Max tires are available in three sizes: 30/10-14; 31/10-15; 32/10-17.

    In all three true-to-measure sizes, STI says the Outback Max uses an 8-ply rated carcass that allows low-psi operation, superior flotation, and the durability riders demand, while keeping the weight competitive.
