Achilles Desert Hawk X-MT Tire Reviews
(Based on 76 Reviews)
I just bought these tires and had them mounted on my 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK. I was amazed that the noise level was very quiet for this aggressive tread. Quieter than the Goodyear Duratrac that these replaced. I haven't driven in the rain yet so I can't report on wet driving yet. Tires ride smooth and balanced well. I will update after I get some miles on the tires and use them off road.
Put a few thousand miles on these so far and they are great!! Not to loud and in the mud and dirt they perform! Being a contractor in wnc makes it tough to get in and out of New sites with all the rain we have and coming out of a hole I don't have to put it in 4wd to get out these tires bite and grab! Couldn't be happier. Also ride great on the highway nice amd smooth!
Great tires for the money put them on about 3k miles ago so far very happy they are wearing very well they are a beast in the mud handle very well on dry roads little noise at 70 on interstate only complain seem to be a little slick on wet roads
These tires do great in all conditions, in the short time I have had them, I have gone from the winter conditions in northern Michigan to the rainy season in Ohio to the warm and humid climate of the American Midwest. They have preformed perfectly for me in all conditions and application I have put them through so far. As these tires break in the hum from the tires on the pavement does increase but not to the point that it's overbearing, more to the point that it makes people look when they hear your vehicle coming down the road.
so far I love the tires I did not have them long enough to be able to rate the tread life and I have not taken them in the mud or snow so I cannot actually rate the winter traction.
These tires have served me well, Excellent tire at a great price!By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I bought these tire cheap and totally based off review and I love them. They are actually very quiet 🤫 when driving. The only time I feel them is when I come to a stop. Just a little rumble but other that that. Awesome in the snow/street/mud. Definitely buying the same tires in the future.
Overall, I love this tire, but you best slow down on a wet road. On my 2002 F150 4x4 Screw, I have been through the soft sand, sloppy mud, hunting leases, and slick boat ramps. They look great and the sound is not too bad. It is a mud tire, so expect some hum. I'm serious about the wet road though. they can feel like you're hitting ice patches. I almost got turned around at highway speeds accelerating in a light mist. You can't go wrong if you're looking for a well priced M/T. I've owned these for over two years now and have over half tread left. They are long lasting.
These tires are pretty much unstoppable when it come to northern michigan weather dry, wet, muddy, snowy, muddysnow any of it these tires so far have defeated any terrain i have put them on. Great tire of the price and highly recommend them to anyone.
Hard to rate them yet but I am happy with the performance so far and the looks.
so far so good. my jeep really needed new tires. got a few hundred miles on them so far so hard to give a true rating. we did get a bunch of snow where i live and the tires performed well
Very impressed with the quality. A must have and alot more reasonable than other places i have shopped
The Achilles Desert Hawk X-MT is one of the best values in mud/all terrain tires on the market in my opinion. I’ve searched high and low and you’ll not find anything at this price point for this type of tire that can compete with these. They look great, have decent off road performance and with 4wd just try to get stuck in the snow (it won’t happen),the road noise is surprisingly quiet for this level of aggressive tread. When these are wore out I’ll be buying an identical set again,I can’t recommend them enough.
Great looking tires. They wear just fine as 600 dollar tire ... I am very happy
Gave an N/A on the wear because it has only been 2k miles but no issues. I gave 5 star on the noise because its not too loud and its not quiet perfect noise to me for a mud tire on a daily driver. I was skeptical about the wet traction reviews but I have had zero problems and 100 times better than stock in the rain. I will definitely be buying from simpletire.com again
Purchased these for my son's Jeep Wrangler. Seem very good so far. Will be putting them on my Jeep next.
Put them on a Jeep Wrangler. Love em. Look great, great traction, low tone rumble good road noise. I'd buy em again. Very happy.
This is a very aggressive tire and does well for my desert off-road driving. It performs well in sand and on rocky terrain. It really excels in mud and sloppy weather. The road noise is nowhere as bad as I thought it would be...in fact, they sound a lot like my last AT tires. I have not had them long enough to see how well, or fast, they wear. Also, I live in the desert, so I don't expect them to see snow anytime soon. I'd recommend them.
These tires have been superior to the other sets I have tried on my 87 Toyota 4x4. Road noise is much at all, it cuts thru mud very well and as excellent traction in clay, haven’t had them in the snow but I have high hopes for them. I also went over some rock trails and never had a issue these tires are TUFF!!!! Will be buy another set for my Jeep soon

Great tires, been a 4wheeler forever, first vehicle was a 64 Scout. These tires are well priced, good in wet conditions and great in the mud and snow. ThanksBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Bought these and shipping was super fast, handles great in wet weather cleans out well. Haven’t had the tire but a month so tread life and winter driving are not yet able to be rated. Will definitely buy again when new tires are needed.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These tires were a great deal and look awesome on my Jeep! Great handling on-road and incredible traction off-road on trails and sand, aired down. Can’t comment on tradwear yet since I just got them and looking forward to see how they’ll do in snow with the winter fast approaching, but I bet they’ll be beast! I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on them already. Thanks, SIMPLETIRE!!By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Im a rural route mail carrier. These are amazing on mud and gravel!
Amazing and fast service great price for great tires 😁😁😁By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Really not bad for the price if you are looking for a great mud/offroad tire. They look fantastic as well. They are a blast offroad on rocks, in mud, dry dirt, etc. Traction everywhere. Once worn in they are fairly loud on the road but it's a mud tire... on a Jeep. I don't recommend these for 24/7 road use unless you're going for looks. Dry handling is fairly good but then again I'm not cornering my Jeep like I do my BMW. Wet handling is awful, these are extremely sketchy in the rain and I actually rear-ended someone on wet roads because the tires could not get enough traction. Overall a decent tire for the price and for the right applications, but be very careful on wet roads.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Love these tires, I use the on my jeep for rock crawling and offroad wheeling.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Best tires I've found in years, dealing with simple tire was a great experience, I will be shopping with them in the future, I highly recommend them to everyone.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Great bang for your buck haven’t put only 1000 miles on these tires but no complaints so far.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Very heavy and uneven weight. had to use too much weight to try and balance these tires.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These tires are awesome so far. They pull great in the mud, and are not to loud on the street.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
The 31x10.50/R15 tires fit my stock 1996 Tacoma perfectly. These have no road noise until you get around 60mph and even then you have to turn down the radio to notice it. Great off-road traction and awesome looks to go with it. I definitely recommend them for anyone looking for mud tires on a budget.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
My name is Vince I was pretty skeptical about these cars when I saw them online never heard of them before but for the price perfect. I have two kids,And jeeps there’s no when you have kids price matters so I took a chance and purchased these tires and a size 32 I was pleasantly surprised when I got them when I drove them it’s been a few months not one complaint for me everything I wanted and look for a new tire very happy with my purchase and thank you simple tire.com PS I didn’t review snow because I haven’t had them through the winter yet but I’m very confident they will be awesome I plow so I’m sure I’ll be able to get to where I have to go with EaseBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
So far I'm very pleased with these tires, they handle great on the pavement and off road in the dirt, to soon to judge the treat life but I'm confident they will do great, winter will be here soon so I will have the opportunity to drive in wet and snowy conditions. I've already recommended your company to many of my friends! Great product reasonably priced!!!
Awesome mt tires that handle like at on the highway. Look great on my 98 jeep!!!
I have not had these tires long but from what I can tell they are great especially for the price not much road noise for a aggresive m/t I will keep buying them
Bought these for my summer wheels. Two summers on them already and they still look brand new. Tread seems to wear very slow and they dig in good off road. They are slightly noisey but it doesn't bother me to much. I would definitely buy them again and I'd recommend to anyone looking for a nice mud terrain for short moneyBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These tires have been amazing, I'd buy them again no problem. They're not noisy compared to others I've had, great in snow, and great all around.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Excellent mud tireBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
So far very impressed with these tires. I do alot of on road and off road driving and have had no issues with them. Also noticed that I do not have to put 4 wheel drive in some of the places I used to with different tires on.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Great tire! Has aggressive tread but isn’t that loud going down the highway. Aggressive off-road, haven’t had to take the truck out of 2wd! Awesome tire and would definitely recommend these to anyone on a budget looking for a great tire. Customer service was amazing and I got the tires and gift card right away!By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Excellent tire for the money. Seems to be wearing very well. Excellent road manors, with the only slight draw back being wet, slick pavement. I feel like they lose traction a little on hard breaking, but most mud tires do. For as meaty and aggressive as these are, I love that they are so quiet. These are my second set, and I'd buy them again. Not ridiculous knobby muds, but not weak all terrains that fill up with much after one spin. These are right in the middle, and work well for my 50/50 road/off-road use.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Wow!!! These things are amazing!! Shipping was supper fast. Tracking was great!! Took these out on the trail and they did amazing. They are not very loud on the highway. Took my jeep on a road trip a few weeks ago in the blistering heat. Did 1k miles. These tires still look brand new. I am I in love with these tires and with Simple Tire. Great job guys!! Keep it up!!
Fast accurate shipping & after doing a good bit of price comparison- I got the best deal with SimpleTire ! Thanks Had this set of tires on for over a month now. I mounted them on 10 inch wide rims, so I get a good footprint of tread contact Had a chance to try them out in some red clay mud, sand & rainy highway conditions. Mud = great Sand= great ( lowered air pressure to 25. Float on top ;) Rain at highways speeds- slow down. The wide footprint also pushes more water in front of tire & seems to want to hydroplane easy. Know your truck & safe speed limit's in rain. All in all - I'd definitely buy again. On 1-10 scale "10"By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These tires are down right deadly on wet roads. I have about 2,000 miles on mine. I drive a Tacoma with a leveling kit and I am terrified to drive in the rain. Please, do NOT buy this tire for someone you love. They look great and excellent to play with but I’m being serious when I say do your research. The tires were a great deal and look awesome though. Thanks for a good deal simple tire, I’ll own my mistake and will certainly do business with simple tire again.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Amazing value, these tires look so aggressive on my 4runner, they completely changed the look of it. Easy to balance, very little road noise for a mud tire and they ride pretty good too. In will definitely be buying these againBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Nice tire looking forward to winter to see how they are
Great off road tires for my yj
Tires are great. Looks killer. Great traction in the snow.. Cleans out great in mud.. Had to fo a 60 to 0 stop in the rain on a hwy. Stopped within two car lengths.. Great over all tires. Bang for the buck.. Will buy again. And tell all friends...
The tires look great and do work in the mud. Have not put many mile on tires so don't know how well the wear rate is. Wet roads are fine. There are two different sides to the tire one with letter that pop out and the other side is more smoothstyle lettering. Road noise is minimal till around 65 and higher, but with out dual pipes you may hear more road noise. Tire ride very smooth and handle higher speeds well. Tire do have a aggressive look more then what the picture shows.
I bought a used 1st-gen Tacoma last spring and these tires were on it. I had never heard of the brand, and was a little skeptical, but they were almost new and looked great. I ran these over the summer before mounting snow tires in late fall. Off the bat, these tires really surprised me with how smooth and quietly they rode, as well as their manners in rain - not something M/Ts are known for. My one beef with them is that they seem to wear really fast. When I took them off, there was still plenty of tread but noticeable wear showing, and the rain traction was beginning to fade. An increase in howl on the highway was apparent as well. All things that would be typical of most any mud tire, including much more expensive brands. As you'd expect, they do outstanding off-pavement and my Tacoma felt unstoppable on muddy forest roads. I feel these would make an outstanding budget-conscious choice for a truck that's primarily a trail rig, but for something that does double duty as a daily driver, I had to sell them and get something with an All-terrain tread that has a longer life expectancy when used on pavement.
Well, had one tire that was not round, the guy pointed it out to me while mounting them. pulled my lawnmower twice, WOW. rough. going to pull it again this morning, then get back and go bogging. should wait until after to write this, but I know they will perform well in the mud. Only bad thing is out of round tire and may have problem keeping balance.
They seem to be decent tires so far
Surprisingly qieut, and good all around tire. Excellant in deep snow. You'd think they would be lousy on ice, rain but they have surprielsed me.
i just bought these tires and i absolutely love them
Great tires all around except they don't last long. At only 14,000 miles I'm having to replace them. Tread is down to 25%. Spend a little extra and get a better tire.
I bought 2. then 2 more! and I am VERY PLEASED with my Achilles Desert Hawk X-MT Every where I go, people tell me how nice they look. My reply is " call Simply Tire and they will hook you up too!" Thank you!
Love these tires. They dig well, throw mud great, and have a great tread pattern. I will buy these again.
got them for off road driving only so fare they've been great very good in the mud on rocks if your looking for a off road tire I would recommend that you try these tires haven't tried them in the winter yet.
Great tires I bought them because I go off-roading once an a while did great in the mud dig right in. Also drove them during a blizzard was eating right through the snow no problems.
Great tires! Much better quality then I expected. For the price you won't beat these. Rides really great and quiet for being a mud tire. Will buy again
Great tires,would recommend to everyone,
I really like these tires, extra load, traction, handling, off road. I'm wanting to put these on all of our vehicles!
Have yet to put 1k on these tires. For less than 600 a set they were worth a try. So far they have handled better on wet surfaces than what I read in reviews. Watched the shop balance these and they took a lot of weight to adjust. Road noise is pretty prominent especially after 60mph but that's really not an issue. The ride is smooth but I'd really give them another 3k to rule the jury on these. So far pleased for the price.
alright ive driven through snow, heavy rain, ice and some deep mud. these tire are awesome. the road noise is equivalent to a cooper at3 and the lugs handle just as good as iroks. these tires have not left me stuck or stranded. i have only put 2000 miles on them so as expected they look like new. i have them on a 02 Durango 4x4 with a 3 inch lift with 2 in spacers. my truck doesnt have abs so stopping on ice isnt easy but its not hard either. these tires dont slide in the snow/ ice as much as a normal mud tire but thats probably because they are skinnier then 12 and 14 wide tires. in the rain i havent been able to hydro plane, but when i went through deep water at 40-60 they do feel as if you put the brakes on and they slow you down as you still can control the vehicle. id recommend these tires to anyone both mall crawler pavement princesses and to hardcore off-roaders. they look and preform as they should
these are nice mud tires, handles mud and snow with equal ease. Have hauled heavy loads of wood with minimal tire flex. so far I am 95% happy with these tires.
Just bought 5 of these in size 235/75/R-15 for my 1991 GMC Van and I'm very happy with them. Excellent sales department. Received them in two days. Haven't really traveled very far with them yet but the traveling I did do was observed carefully. As I started to move with the new tires they responded well. Tire Pressure call for 50 psi max, But I had the Tire installers fill them to 35 psi which make the tires run even. The Van is loaded with batteries and tool boxes. Umm as I started the dry driveway and roads they handled very well so i gave it a 5, then down the road I listened for loudness of the Achilles - Desert Hawk X-M/T's, as I expected some noise, but I was surprised that were not louder so I gave it a 5, it did start to rain on the way home and they handled great so i gave it a 5, Ride and handling is a 5 for sure. As for tread life I'm guessing by the quality of the Tire and by the tread thickness and design. a 5, and I going to say the same for winter traction. a 5. As for tread and winter i will give an update in the future.
