Eventually you will rip the left upper axle/trackbar mount of the axle. Is a common problem. Unless of course you give that area some love with a bit of extra steel

For street driving the MTR's are a lot quiter than KM2's those things make a lot more racket than the old MTZ's I had on my Yellow Jeep.
Traction wise it doesn't seem to make a lot of difference, not overly impressed with either one. Doesn't help that the old krawlers on the front of my big Jeep are old and pretty hard. It still made really quick and easy work off the Big Bear stuff, but then so does my lil yeller

I think you have the best tire for all that right now.... I'm not a big Toyo guy though, I have no first hand experience with their MT, but seeing Toyo tires come in frequently, separated, worn funny, and worn quickly on all the crappy lifted trucks around here keeps them in the "poser" category for me.... basically good looking tires for pavement pounders with aftermarket wheels, with only one category they care about.... Looks. I also don't like that the 35" is 13.5 wide and around 10lbs. heavier per tire..... who know's though, they might actually work good. I see them on lot's of JK's in metric sizes.

Why Art..... with my little 10" of travel I haven't even been able to wear out the stock track bar! I could manage reinforcing it though if ever needed.
