8 ply vs 6 ply
Max are a little heavier
I would like an opinion on these if anyone has experience with them. Stuck between the two.

I have 29.5 terms, I love em but my yard hates em....I've been through some stuff and never even had to lock it in vs my foreman with mud lites would have required 4wd. But like I say, they are hell on my lawn when turning. I could prolly till up the ground with em and plant a garden.

What is the weight difference? I am trying to figure out what to go with also for 30's. I am considering mudzillas also for one I hear they are way lighter but also I have seen them in action-one of my buddies has them on his grizzly and they go!

I was also wanting to know which one was more stable at high speeds and which one could handle a rock face better?

I have no idea which one is better. My OM tires have seen mud, rock, dirt and the street. I was happy with how they performed every time. They ride incredibly smooth on the street, you would of never of guessed that by looking at them. If you are wanting a rock tire, this isn't it. However, like I said, I was happy with their performance on the rock because I know they are a 30" mud tire and are not made for that. So in my opinion, I thought they handled the rock pretty good. Like Josh says about his Terminators, I use 4 wheel drive A LOT less now!!

I'm not looking for a rock tire. I was asking about these particularly because my area is 60% mud and then you have hard pack trails and a few rocks.

Resurrecting this thread. Any new reviews or opinions on these two tires? I'm trying to decide between the 29.5x10x14 terms or 30x10x14 outback maxx's.

I'll have a 2" high lifter lift and be getting JBS clutching.

I also have outback max tires and I love them. I think they are a little heavier because they are an 8 ply tire. The reason I went with them was because they were an 8 ply and I figured they'd last longer on asphalt.

I went with terms and love them-would buy them again. I chose them because of the weight difference. After running them my buddy bought a set for his ranger crew.

Does 2.2 lbs really make that much of a difference??

Terms:
29.5x10x14 = 46

Outback Max
30x10x14 = 48.2

I will say my 29.5 don't measure out to be 29.5 at 7lbs. Aired to 17lbs now measure 29

I will say it only matters to whoever owns and drives the Viking! I have had three sets of rims and weighed all of them! Here are my findings
Stock tires-35.2 with factory steel rims
27 mudlites 43.5 with 14" aluminum rims
30 terms 55 with 14" aluminum rims

Going from 35.2 to 55 is a big difference so to me the extra 2-3 lbs per wheel was worth it for me and my personal taste is that I like the look of the terms better. Rob runs 30 outback maxs on his green machine and they look great and he has no trouble with turning them so I think it boils down to personal preference! Hope this helps

I have the 30 Outback Max and I have no complaints. I have never had Terms so I don't know which of the two is better. These things have grip man, they won't let you down.

And they measure true, mine actually measure 30.5" with 10psi

But I would say just go with what you like, either way you are getting a bad ass tire!
