Bring that tire down here and you will find out how worthless they are for the terrain that we have. They may be really good in rocks but around here they are truly no better than an average street tire. Your design and the new design are a night-day difference.

I would but I am running H1 rims re-centered with the hummer tires, I am finding my selection of tires to be, somewhat limited now.

Does anyone have a set of 37" MTR's that they could measure to give me an exact height mounted?

IROKS are a true offroad tire. good in mud, good in rocks. The MTR kevlar is made for a great trail tire and will still give you good road manners. Kevlars are awesome on rocks as well. Just like the old MTR was made for. out east here, the kevlar will own an old MTR on these rocks tho. and i bet it will on slick rock as well. As for mud, the IROK will most likely be better then the kevlar. It seems like you do a lot of mudding so I would say go with the IROK and deal with it on the road. If you want a good all around tire, go with a kevlar. As for height, they are just about the same height. that extra 1/4" isnt gonna help ya.
