I've torn mine up a little off-road in AZ, though. Rocks & heat will rip those lugs off.
My feeling is that the MT/R's are better off road tires than BFG's A/T KO or M/T KM. But the BFG tires are better road tires and will last longer. I've seen some ugly, ugly GY MT/R's that don't have that many miles on them. On the other hand, I see some abused A/T KO's that look fine.
My current set is BFG A/T KO's. My NEXT set will be M/T KM's - I want a larger lug that I'm not going to beat up as easily. I lean away from the MT/R's if you are doing much road driving, but it's a great off road tire.
The KJ will get A/T KO's as it's next set, it doesn't wheel much and I want a good, long lasting tire that's good in the Snow and decent in the dirt. That's the A/T KO. (BTW, I notice you're in Prescott, if you are up in the hills around thre that get a lot of snow, then the A/T KO may be just what you want - by far the best snow tire of the bunch)
