Presented by the National Association of Filipino Off-Roaders (NAsFOR), the annual MAXXIS 4x4 Cup Philippines Off-road Challenge 2019 features a variety of route twists and extremely muddy terrain with uneven ground and waist-level puddles that put racers and their 4x4 trucks to the extreme test.

The Mud Trepador M9060 and Razr MT772 are designed to withstand punctures and cuts, endure low air pressure operation, improve off-road stability and handling, and provide strong traction in all types of terrain for superior driving performance.
