Maxxis Bravo AT-771 Review
If you’re new to trucks or off-roading, Maxxis might not be a familiar name, but for anyone who lives the lifestyle (or who owns an ATV) Maxxis is a brand that’s built a reputation for off-road performance.
- On and off-road capability
- Off-road durability
- Solid looks
- Confusing warranty
- Not the most comfortable ride
Maxxis is best known for its extreme off-road tires than can climb just about anything and go through just about anything too. But those tires won’t get you very far on the highway. And they’ll be so loud you won’t want to drive them anywhere but the dirt.
For that reason Maxxis offers a tire like the Bravo Series AT-771. It’s built to be equally capable off-road and on. And, surprisingly, for a tire with this dual purpose, it actually looks pretty sweet.
The pattern itself, as well as the unique sidewall, are designed for maximum off-road traction. The tire’s carcass is also made custom so it’s stiffer for off-road stability and durability, while managing to deliver a pretty decent amount of on-road comfort. Some competitors are more comfort-focused, however.
The circumferential grooves and siping help evacuate water (to prevent hydroplaning) while also delivering impressive levels of wet-weather grip.
As one might expect with an all-terrain tire designed for plenty of on-road use, it comes with a 50,000 mile warranty. Or, should we say, the non-LT sizes come with that warranty. Pickup owners won’t be so lucky.
We also find Maxxis’ limited warranty to be downright confusing. (See our warranty section below for more info).
In general, the Bravo AT-771 impresses with its true dual nature as it genuinely succeeds at both being a great on-road and off-road tire. Overall, it’s a tough all-terrain tire to beat, with a wide variety of sizes to choose from at an excellent price point.
Maxxis Bravo AT-771 Price
Bravo Series AT-771 tires are priced starting from approximately $116 per tire and offer great value for the money.
Maxxis Bravo AT-771 Warranty
The Bravo AT-771 comes with a limited treadwear warranty of of 50,000 miles on non-LT sizes. Otherwise all Maxxis tires are covered by a limited warranty that’s a bit more confusing to understand than most. Rather than listing the usual warranty that covers materials and workmanship, Maxxis clearly outlines “what is not covered” on their website (which when you read it is essentially just saying “materials and workmanship”).
For the first 50% of tire life Maxxis will replace any tire that has issues unrelated to the “what is not covered” list. For the last 50% and up to the last 2/32nds of tread depth, Maxxis will pro-rate the replacement tire. For replacement tires, customers will have to pay for taxes and mounting/balancing costs. Also, tires worn past the first 2/32nds of treadwear aren’t covered for things like balance, ride and vibration.
Overall, Maxxis’ warranty isn’t great, and it is confusing.

Is the Maxxis Braco AT-771 Made in America?
It is not. Maxxis manufactures all its tires in facilities in five countries: Taiwan, China, Thailand, Vietnam and India.
Is the Maxxis Bravo AT-771 Good in Snow?
While an all-terrain tire like the AT-771 offers certain advantages in snow over, say, an all-season tire, it’s not an ideal winter tire. The generous siping on the tread blocks helps it grip snow and use it as a traction surface against itself, while the larger tread blocks work well in deeper snow. However, cold weather will freeze the tread and cause it to loose traction quickly. This tire is not certified for extreme winter use and does not feature the three-peak mountain snowflake logo on its sidewall.
