    Anyone know some good all round tires 60% road 40% off road is what ill be using them for and no highways either. And I dont wanna switch them for the winter either hehe, Im soo lazy, and only 3 to 4 feet of snow here anyway and not for long either.

    I second the MTRs - they balance, run quiet, and wear ok.

    60/40? That is a bunch of dirt miles!!

    Personally i havn't used my Pro Comp muds in the snow(being from Texas) but I do a bunch of road and highway driving and for the past year that i have had my tires on they have been doing very well. They are wearing very evenly.

    Yea the area I live in have some serious sheit roads (.
    Barely see any straigt flat roads here, morstly dirtroads, I can probaly go to most close towns (40 to 60 kilometres radious) by offroad if I like hehe, so thats why I need some good all terrain tires ).Gona see what brand I can get from the ones suggested so far, dont even dare to think of shipping from US heh.

    bought some regul MT about 1 1/2 years ago, and they handle great on
    the road, no roaring, and grip great in the mud, no snow around here, so cant
    tell you about that. also were pretty cheap $130 each, and are wearing great
