Maxxis Creepy Crawler M-8090 Tire Review & Rating
The Maxxis Creepy Crawler M-9090 tires are rugged, durable, aggressive looking mud-terrain tires. Built to overcome all of the obstacles off-road vehicle owners face such as rocks, mud and other debris, the Creepy Crawler provides the strength, traction and grip required when you go off the beaten track with your light truck, jeep, SUV or 4×4.
Maxxis uses a softer rubber tread compound to go with its unique tread pattern. The deeper tread depth, coming in at 27/32 inch, and rugged sidewall design with larger shoulder lugs improve traction, especially when you are driving over rougher terrains.
This Maxxis tire is DOT approved, which means they can be used effectively on the road, however, street performance is not this tires’ strength. More on that later.
As well as offering superior grip in off-road terrain, this model cleans itself very well from mud, rock and more. Stone ejector ribs do their job better than many other models we’ve seen. It also handles deeper snow better than expected despite only being M+S rated.
Maxxis offers a number of 15-17 inch sizes, with load range ratings of either C, D or E. A limited tread warranty is included with all sizes.
- Excellent traction on rocks and in mud
- Deep, long-lasting tread
- Aggressive, good looking tire
- Performs poorly on the road and highway
- Road noise at highway speeds
The Maxxis Creepy Crawler tire is an eye-catching, aggressive looking tire that is primarily designed to give off-roaders the traction, grip and strength they need on the trail when they are driving over rocks, through mud and on other testing terrains. In that regard, it’s a beast that does its job well.
An extremely deep tread and the ability to self-clean means these tires add to grip, traction and stability when driving off-road. A combination of tough, thick sidewalls and large lugs further enhance the off-road capabilities of these tires. The 27/32 inch tread depth is among the deepest of any off-road tire.
On the negative side, despite being DOT approved, the Maxxis Creepy Crawler is not ideal for use on the highway. As many other owners have mentioned in reviews, this tire is noisy and wears out much faster when driven daily on the street. Although it has adequate traction in moderate to deep snow, traction on ice is not that great. It carries an M+S rating, which is not going to cut it for those needing a tire that can handle rough winter conditions.
Overall, the Maxxis Creepy Crawler is a high-quality M/T tire that performs well in a wide range of difficult off-road driving situations. However, it’s a tire you really may only want to use when you’re on the trail and not as a daily driver on the street.
