Goodyear Wrangler MT/R Questions

I have been researching tires for a couple of months now and really narrowed it down to this one. I was wondering what your guy's opinion is on these tires. I would also like your opinions on alternate tires verses these. I really don't care about wear. I just need them to last a year. What I am looking for is decent performance in the mud, woods, mild rocks, and decent drivability on the street (don't care how loud they are). Thanks guys, looking forward to your responses.

I love my MTR's. My TJ had 245/75R16 (31's) on it when I bought it. I wheeled it a lot of miles last year and I was very very impressed with them. I felt like they handled all the different terrain I threw at them with flying colors. I put 17,000 plus miles on them on the street last year as well and I thought they rode decent for a E rated sidewall and fairly quiet. I liked them so much that when I replaced them, I put 285/75R16 MTR's on it. Had them off road for the first time last week and at 14psi, I loved them. Snow, mud and rocks were no match for them....

Thanks, you pretty much fully convinced me. I am definitely going with the MT/R's. By the way, you wouldn't happen to be associated with 1320 video would you?

No not associated with 1320 video but I have seen some of their stuff. My username comes from my 8 second 71 Nova street car....

Nothing wrong with the MTRs. Another choice would be Nitto Mud Grapplers.
