They're good tires. Easy to balance, they wear well and they look good. They clean themselves out well and when aired down, they do well on rocks. Definitely not a quiet tire though. There's obviously gonna be louder ones out there but these are no slouch when it comes to the "wah-wah-wah" you get when driving down the road. Overall I like them a lot. I will buy them again.
two season of Az rocks and no cuts, that made it through. Some long trips to cali wheeling. Never a flat. for the 225$ for 35x12.5x15 Wont make great street tire but works. They will get louder as they age.
Thanks guys....good info.
Heard some positive reports of off road performance..... no negatives!
Is this a fair summary.....
Good, or better than, most other tire in off road performance, with the added plus of C rating in 35" for soft ride and strong sidewalls for excellent cut resistance!
I just replaced my 35" BFG Krawler tires with a 35" set of these. The Krawlers are renowned as one of the best offroad tires out there. The MTR's are great! I tried them out over the weekend, and they did almost as good. I think some of the loss of grip was based on the fact that they are narrower. They did everything I asked of them. I did hill climbs, rocks, and slick dirt and mud sections. I climbed a few rocks with pretty much just the sidewall.
I am very happy with the on road performance as well. They sound like a mud terrain, but don't feel like one while cruising. Very smooth, no lug slap when coming to a stop that I noticed.
I am sold on these tires. I plan to pick up another set potentially, if I find a good deal on more used ones.
It's not an addiction. It's a way of life.
