Ok heres what i got from my 29.5s went out rideing and the trails where nothing but mud and i was VERY impressed with them didnt even need 4wheel for hills.They do clean out well with alittle bump from the thumb and i never even had them clog up.I did get to hit a few holes the first one was between 3-4 feet deep (clay like mud) and i went threw in 2wd like it was nothing.Before when i had my zillas 28" i had to use 4wd with some effort to get threw.As for the other nasty hole i didnt make but i dont think anything would but they did paddled for abit then stsrted to dig it was the farthest ive ever seen anyone go.I will post more review on how they float and so on how they do when i can get to another area to ride.As for my review they are a BAD A** tire for the mud and smooth rideing tire for the trails.

This is my first impression of the Terms as I only have 1 ride on them but put them through several different types of terrain.

They ride very smooth. Smoother than my Zillas are and possibly even smoother than my old 27" Mudlites. A lot of the trails I ride have a couple inches of sand on top of the road and they tend to wander a little on that but did good in deeper sand and on hard pack.

My buddy has a Grizzly on 29.5s and he is my reference for the comparison against Outlaws......

We hit a few trails and went through all our usual holes with no problem for either one of us. Then I remembered a big hole I wanted to try a couple weeks ago so we made our way over to it. I was the first to drop off into this hole that obviously had not been ridden in a while (apparently most people are smarter than us) and they struggled to pull me through and I had to work it quite a bit. I turned around and watched him walk through fairly easily behind me and I was starting to get disappointed. At the end of this hole was a small hill which I climbed easily and then had to get off the Brute and help him push the Grizz out after a few failed attempts to do it on his own. I thought I'd give her another try since I had broken all the silt loose on that pass and sure enough I drove right back through the hole the same way and this time made it easily with no struggle at all. I also climbed out of the hole again on my own (big wheelie!) and again had to help push the Grizzly out. This mud was just over knee high thick silty slush with a hard slippery bottom. He left soon after this because he kept overheating. The rest of the day I played it safe since my winch is dead and I had no backup.


In short: They climb out of ruts and holes very well and ride smooth. On sidehills they handle very well and do not slide. I think they are an upgrade from Zillas, but not sure how much of one just yet. I need a little more seat time (and rain!!!) before I can get a really good idea of what they will do. I do recommend not being the first person to go through a hole with them.

And since I am a pic wh0re:

29.5 why would you want a smaller tire for the same price unless you dont plan on going deep and bottoming out

terminators are a great all around tire and excel in the mud one thing I liked was I tried a hole I couldnt make it through but I was able to back out no problem and while riding with brutemike when he got his I noticed he did the same in a different mudhole/swamp so as long as you dont bottom out you will still be able to get out from my expirience

I guess but if I was scared of breaking something I would either build it bigger or not ride at all

so some are kind of comparing them to zillas (well a upgrade) as far as trail riding (smoothness), can you still throw the bike around a bit with the terms? can you power slide when needed/want to?
i love the ability to play on trails when i want and wonder if they react the same as zillas on hard/semi-hard trails?

I guess it would depend on how much power you have to break them loose but they grip like crazy so im my opinion no you wouldnt be able to power slide and things like that but as stated before awesome smooth riding tire for the lug size

You wont be sorry you got them.:haha: i love these tires but one thing dont punch it on the road they will break loose and it wears on the center lug but soon as i stoped hitting the gas hard on pavement they seemed to stop wearing i was even on the road for 7-10 miles last ride and didnt see any more wear. when i talk about hitting the gas i mean from a dead stop. So guys take them terms out and let them eat.

Honestly IMO if your going from backs to terms just for the ride you won't be dissapointed. If your leaving backs for terms because backs dig to much, you will be dissapointed. They dig straight down just like backs. I don't own any, but I have ridden a bike that had them and I didn't like them because they dug down so fast. If you ride in stuff that has a decent bottom to grab they are a great tire. Where I ride there is no bottom. Outlaws seem to be the best around here because they paddle more. Ride wise I was super impressed with the terms. They climb very very good also.

FYI There are quite a few guys on the HL forum saying their tires are defective, causing them to leak down and SuperATV is replacing the tires. I have not had the problem yet.
