I think your going to like the mayhems.they look awesome and dig in the mud great. Like you i went with all the positive reviews i read. I was disappointd at first because they didnt get traction on hardpack trails but after some wear on the tires they grip alot better. and i hear it keeps getting better. They run great on pavement too. They do rob the viking of some power but thats what a jbs sheeve is for.
