The MT/R is, by far, the better/stronger tire and it would do fine in mud. It's not a mud tire by design but it still does fine in all but soupy deep mud where you'd want a specialized mud tire like a Super Swamper.

When you have a choice, buy American.

What kind of mileage has everyone been getting from these tires? I am debating between these and Cooper STT's. Also, for anyone that has bought them recently how long was your wait or did you find them in stock somewhere? They are out of stock everywhere here.

MTRs are a great offroad tire, im not impressed with them on road so far. They are quiet, they just arent round enough so they shake going down the road. Ive taken them in to get roadforce balanced and rebalanced several times, waste of money IMO. The best thing ive used so far i think is the centramatics. Ill be getting 17's and some duratracs next time.

Lump, You had the same problems as i did, But Goodyear stuck you with the **** end of the stick. I called and complained until i got a set of "round" mt/r's. It took 7 or 8 IIRC.
I switched back to aluminum wheels and got a even better/less weight balance than before, So i highly doubt its your wheels. Win some and you lose some, Sucks they didn't replace your eggs like they should have. Kinda hard to stick with a company that sticks a customer with crap and they know and admitted the molds were bad. Good luck next time around

MOPAR!

Wow I didn't know they were having this problem. Like I said mine have been great but I've only had them for a few months, so it's a relatively recent set

The first couple runs of 35-12.50-15's had alot of out of round sets. I complained enough during the backorder when i was told the molds for that size had a defect. The replacements are real nice and smooth compared to the squares i did have.
This was a couple years ago, Maybe a soon as year and half. I and another member had a blem sidewall in our sets as well. IMO it was a real bad deal all around.
But it was also the "first" big run of that size and didn't have all the quirks worked out yet. I have 15k on my current ones and they are wearing like iron and grip wet weather great. They have their pro's and con's though.

yeah ive had them for a year and a half. its a pain in the butt, i like the tire and i hate the tire. I may buy another set in a 17 wheel flavor, and if they suck ill take them back and request a refund so i can go buy km2's or something.

Yea my 33's take an *** of weight to balance and its still not right. I have alum. wheels too. Ill probably go with a different tire when the time comes. The tires are prob 1/2 worn.

I just went from shaking 33mtr/k to 35 KM2 on TR HD beadlocks, I haven't had the KM2 balanced yet and today got to drive it up to 60mph and have no wobble at all, I don't think I am going to have them balanced either.
