I'm glad to see some with some sense backing up the notion that the MT/R K is not the best thing since sliced bread. I believe it is a good all purpose tire, works well for light to medium duty stuff, but does not do awesome on the rocks and more aggressive stuff. Kinda funny though, I say it and get blasted by the Goodyear rump swabs, you say it and it comes with an "oh, ok, he must be right" response.

By the way, big fan of this build, looking forward to seeing it in action.

The GY MTRKs are actually very good on the rough, jagged type of rocks, that's why most of us Indy guys run them down in Attic IN at the Badlands. They are a great all around tire and can take a beating, which is why I was surprised Gerald and John went with Falken Wildpeaks. I don't know much about them beside basic details, which is why I asked earlier why they were the tire of choice. Does anyone know the details of the sidewall compound and strength for those Falkens? Thanks!

I love the GY MKRKs as well and have yet to have a major problem with them, although they have started chunking a bit now that they're getting older. If the Falkens had a better tread design I'd be more apt to try them out, but they don't look like they would be very good in the slippery/muddy stuff. I try to stick exclusively to rocks, but unfortunate here in the NE you can't get to the rocks without going through some slick/wet stuff.

What's the weight on those Falkens Gerald? If they're as good as you say they are, I may have to take a look at them.

A guy I wheeled with at Rausch one time was running them in the 37" flavor. Did the whole park fairly easy.

Good to know, I need to see them in person sometime; it's hard to get a good idea of how they are just by pictures.

Here he is on the trail 5 hill climb. If his front ARB air locker didn't decide to spring a leak half way up, he would have easily made it. You can youtube this hill; it's not a walk in the park.

That's is why we all run Detroit in the front and ARB in the rear!

Everybody knows Ian can't drive! He bashed my new buggy up on a non obstacle in Area BFE Moab.

They are 6-10lbs heavier than the GY MTRs.

The tread pattern is not aggressive but the compound is very good. Hopefully the MTR will be out before KOH13! We only groove them for more bite in the sand. They work well in the rocks because the compound is soft. We believe there is more natural rubber in the compound.
