I wouldn't buy a tire made in China even if it squeegeed it's self. Some dog may winky on it and hid dick might fall off days later...well.
~You guys are killing me trying to decipher your text like replies due to vast knowledge. MT this and that without brand on some. (obviously I haven't read all 34 pages ay) lol, y'all are great, every time I come to this site I get dizzy from overload of info...

~I got a nudder roofing nail half inch away from a repair done six year or so ago on 50,000 mile stock 16" Rubi tyres <--<< lol, I've an Aussie pal who spelze stuff funny.
I was wanting to replace the four stock tires. Goodyear (MT/R) and was wondering if peeps thought the 244.00 bucks free shipped from Amazon say was just a waste of money..over priced for what one gets on a low side mileage tire?
Goodyear Wrangler MT/R Kevlar Radial Tire - 245/75R16 120Q E1 ...lol wups, pasting took control. They changed the thread pattern, kevlar seems funny as I've never known kevlar to resist anything but cuts...and is silicone percent something new? anyone? ...lol, and I've never taken a roofing nail in my sidewall.

There..(oh here I go...we now return control of your fonts..eep!) is a Cooper tire joint in a nearby town, but they've in past been been same price range of Goodyear.
I'm more prone to drive in sand/mudish sand than rocks.. but did I read all mud tires (MT?) are all poor in snow? Compared to what? All terrain look like taking a nap vs aggressive lug tires.
Please excuse my multi-esk question at the perhaps end of thread, 'n tip of hat to the OP. ~ I was wondering opinions of the stock Goodyear (it's changed) performance vs price something other. Tis daily driver mostly, 'n more likely a snow snag a stranger out and up/get them home safe than rocks as said...you guys/gals are cwazy. Ifn I rolled me Jeep, how would I get home? ~'course ya never know of spontaneity eyeballin' a pals landscaping rocks, or home made bridge failed crossing.
~poking fun taken in stride. BTW elephant ride was coined; riding on the roll bar steering with feet(wups, hard top foot in window first time(s) YJ)/1st gear, four high with manual tranny just idling o're hill 'n dale on 200 acre gramps old farm/digs. Lotsa wooded trails/coupla short hills.

Have had great luck with my km2 but have a fat price tag that comes with them. Good review overall just keep them balanced and rotated.

If the Coopers/Procomps are an acceptable tire for you, then that's fine. I will take the MT/Rs for the same or very close price any day, tread warranty or not.
I just ordered a set of the emt2, I can't find anyone that isn't happy with them. I haven't been able to confirm yet but from what I've found so far, cooper made the mt's and Maxxis makes the mt2's. The one negative thing I did find was for the extreme mt's was that there were out of round, probably why some require a lot of weights.

Nice. They are good tires though there are quite a few haters of those tires here.

They aren't cheap but they also last a long time. Cost per mile is probably less than than a cheap tire which wears much faster.

I run km2's as well, I really like them off road but they wear fast on asphalt and need to be rotated sooner.

So 05 tj rubicon with 2" BB, I'm torn between MTR/Ks and MTZs, will just be 265/75s on stocks. I had Kevlars on on my Silverado and love them but I have never heard someone that didn't like their MTZs. MTRs are about $100 more for a set of 5 than MTZs so price isn't a huge difference.

Does anyone know anything about the Nankang Mudstars? I'm looking for something relatively cheap, yet nasty and gnarly looking. Howling like a scalded dog is a plus also... I was kinda thinking about Mud Claws as well.

I had Sigma Trail Cutter M/T's on my '88 chev 1500 and they were without a doubt the BEST cheap mudder I ever saw! Of course they don't make 'em any more...

I got the new Mastercraft MXT about 2 weeks a go. So far they are quiet and handles well in the rain. They should last +/- 40,000 miles. They look good to.
