As you might have guessed, I’m pretty stoked on these tyres. They handle well for the (let’s be honest) 90% of the time I spend on the blacktop, in the wet, plus getting about on the farm, particularly with all the rain we’ve had in the last month down here.
On gravel they track well and don’t flick up too much rubbish, which I’m a bit sensitive to with the new car, although it’s my fault with the wider offset wheels 😁
They’re quiet enough, actually handle okay through the twisties, with no trace of the (what felt like) tread block folding that I felt with the 711 when pushed hard into the corner with a heavy vehicle. I mean, I wouldn’t say that turn-in is crisp or anything like that, but they provide good feedback, and it’s rewarding enough to go for a punt, so that’s a tick in my book.
Looking at the treadwear, using my basic back-of-a-beer-coaster maths, I, with my driving style, would be looking at roughly 47,878 km out of these tyres before they were down to the wear markers, which is less than some, but perhaps a reasonable trade off given the capability they offer.
So if you’re heading off the beaten track on a reasonably regular basis, or you’re a nomadic type looking for a tyre that bears MT strength with an aggressive AT tread pattern, you won’t go far wrong with the Maxxis Razr 811AT. In fact, these tyres would be good for most folks who actually go off the blacktop, with their good handling and manners.
