amazing...and there is a HUGE difference between the regual tire and their kedge grip...the kedge grip is the best definately worth the extra $10 or less a tire

Does anyone have these tires or any other tire and had a good experience. I am really close to pulling the trigger on these with the kledge grip.

These are awesome tires, very quiet, and smooth on the freeway. They do very well off road except when gummed up with mud they slip a little but nothing my lockers couldn't help out with.

I'm sold on them and probably will stick with them for another 2-3 sets cuz I have 16" wheels and need C-rated tires and treadwright offers.

Here is a propaganda video from MoabJeeper and Treadwright. I will be ordering mine in the next week or so. I will give a through review.

Good info there. The Guard Dog is the tire most people want, and the detailed close-ups and action videos really show what it does.

My Guard-dog MTR's will be here on Wednesday. I will post pictures, an initial inspection and keep everyone up to date on the review.

I ordered 31/10.5/15's on 8/30/10 so deliver 1.5 weeks later I believe is an acceptable time frame.

Here is my build thread link where I will be utilizing these tires.

Just ordered 5 Guard Dogs in 285/75 r16. I will be sure to post up a review after I get them and after I've driven around on them for a while.

My brother has had a set of 33/12.50 r15 for a couple years now and he is really satisfied with them.

I'll be interested in your review as I have 31X10.50X15s too and would like a set. I read that they are a true 31 inches tall.

I've got the Crawler's currently and everyone here is saying they like the Guard Dog, why? I've had my Jeep in water to the doors and the mud below was axles deep and the Crawlers had no problem getting me thru it. They clean out great, the only thing I will say is they aren't great trying to stop in snow from 40+ mph but getting thru snow they are great.

I got my Guard dogs put on Thursday and went wheeling yesterday with them the performance was great off road, much better than my Yokahama Geolander AT/S. Three of my five did not balance very well but I have contacted them about this and will hopefully get a response on that.

There is a weird thing about one of them thought it has a green chunk of rubber in it. I was trying to figure it out last night but figure it is not a big deal.

I don't recall anyone saying they didn't like the crawlers.
