Any tire works well on the street. The kevlars just don't last long enough for 15-20k a year driving.

I wouldn't exactly say a bogger works well on the street. Plus MTR's look really cool and we all know how important that is.

A mtr will last 40k with some love. 45 till its useless. The only MT tire I've seen own everybody else is a toyo OCMT and that lasted 68000 miles before it was useless

They last crazy long, granted I have to air them down to around 8 because the sidewall is so beefy...but I'll be ready for 37's before my toyos need replacing.
