Three sidewalls doesn't sound good to me - I drive around in woods full of beaver cut saplings. My '04 has been carrying around the brand new old MTR on the spare since it came off the lot. I keep thinking 4 new old stock will show up on Craig's list or eBay. I've even thought of a lift just to be able to use the military MTR.

GY does not call it a street tire.

Here is their description:
Our ideal tire designed for extreme off-road expeditions, featuring DuPontTM KevlarŪ that helps resist punctures when powering over rocks, mud & sand.

Summit Racing does, probably because they don't know what else to call it.

If you don't want to run them for whatever reason you choose that's your choice. But when you have no experience with them knocking them and continued arguing with people who do have extensive experience with them is just stupid. Good luck with your choice.

Summit Racing has a category named "Goodyear Street Tires" because they separated Goodyear racing tires from the other GY tires.

For lack of a better name, they chose to label the one category GY Street Tires.

Not very surprising considering that Summit Racing has a larger focus on racing vs. off roading.

Also, Summit Racing is probably not your best source for info on off road tires.

If what I say in my own thread sounds stupid to a wise guy, he could choose to stay out of it. Good luck with your choice.

What choice? I already know what works and I also know what I would buy if I wanted a soft compound MT (it wouldn't be TrXus).

I was pretty certain you wouldn't be able to figure out what choice.

If you are suggesting I could have chosen to stay out of this thread, that was an easy one.

No, I chose . . . to post again. Shall we talk some more about how you hate the appearance of the MTRs? We all know how important appearance is.

Just go out and buy a set of Interco Boggers and be done with it,just don't drive on the street(extreme fast wearing) or above 45mph(impossible to balance).

So its a street tire, Fine by me. Even more so when they knock pretty much every other tires d!ck in the dirt, Time after time, Terrain after terrain my street tires out perform a tire that says m/t on the sidewall.

Dead on




They are not going to bring back the OG mt/r mold, Sorry bud. I wish they would so I could attempt the old 37-12.50-15's. There are more than you think that were happy as pigs in chit with the old style. But with everything else, Times change!

You are looking for a tire to last and get the best traction possible with a super tough sidewall. Two real options, TSL SX's and sipe and or groove them, Or kevlars.

Base off looks all you like, I didn't like them either as mentioned. But its hands down one of the top tires and if you don't like them, Hard to talk **** about the toughest off the shelf tire when you compare to well, Anything!

Yeah, Its 'you're' thread, But lies and bullchit don't fly too far. Plus when you post a thread, Its for opinions, Unless you like to sit and reply to yourself. Either way, No reason to troll, Or you will get a lot of fun nice replies, Good luck
