    How do mattracks stack up to a set of say 40" TSLs?

    Not too well in the rocks.. :flipoff2:
  3. Do not, even for a moment, think of buying Mattracks....

    We have a few sets for our SAR vehicles, and ATVs....maybe good in sand, if you're gonna do a desert crossing where the desert doesn't have dunes....e.g. is perfectly flat....otherwise a total and complete waste of money.

    Poor grip on hills, and poor traction on sideslopes turns a perfectly good wheeled vehicle into an expensive, cool looking garage queen....

    I'm still trying to get our unit to sell ours on ebay so we can get some decent BFGs or something....

    Just my $0.02....

    Dont do it! The only thing they will do is disapoint you! The rocks will tear them up, and they will snag on all sorts of things.

    There are a couple of trucks with them on one of the local ski hills. I've seen a hummer up to it's doors in snow on a ski run, and the Excursion with mattracks, came and pulled it out. For snow I think they seem pretty good.

    WHy anyone would consider them for anything but the snow is suprising.

    They are based off of snowmobile tracks. Soemthing that gets eaten up horribly in anything but snow..
    They do work very well in the snow tho
