Wait, so you're going to drive from Florida to Moab on these tires? [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] If so, just get some allterrains and pull your swampers to the trail on a little ATV trailer, that would make much more sense. Xterrains are probably about as crappy in the rain as my tires (bfg muds)... but if you custom sipe them with a razor, they will do much better and supposedly last longer. It could be a factor of width, but my 31x10.5 BFG at ko's were awesome in the rain, i dont recall ever having a hydroplane incident. Driving in heavy rain with these 12.5's is a white knuckle experience to say the least, I cant imagine how those guys with 39x18" Mickey's can keep it on the road.
