m/t tires arent bad...just a little noisier than a/t. definitely dont let that be the deciding factor between a rubi and an x/sahara. the rubi is considerably stronger in the axle dept, and comes with lockers and 4.10 gears...a BIG plus, and a BIG expense when you decide later you want to add them to your x/sahara(about 4 grand to add lockers and re-gear both axles) and believe me...once you get a taste for the offroading, you will want to add them.
