STI Unveils New Outback Max Mud Tire
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.
The aggressive tread pattern features center lugs measuring 1.5 inches deep, with 2.0-inch deep lugs at the shoulders. These lugs are built with a stepped-base design intended to minimizes flex across the tire’s tread, maximizing traction and tire strength.
“We’ve engineered a better mud tire for today’s large-bore UTVs,” says STI’s Jamie Chisholm. “The market needed a tire that could handle the weight and horsepower of today’s high-performance UTVs. The Outback Max is designed to deliver superior traction in the sloppiest conditions, pulling hard through the mud and still offering a smooth ride on hard-packed terrain.”
The Outback Max tires complement STI’s line of Outback AT and XT tires, a multi-size lineup of all-conditions tires currently available in 25-inch up to 28-inch sizes.
Pricing on the STI Outback Max is $235.32 (30/10-14), $256.13 (31/10-15), and $269.43 (32/10-17).
