    I saw some writeups when they first came out. Unbelievable. They made mud and snow look like a joke. they had them on a yota and it went everywhere. The only drawbacks were a poor steering radius and the cost. I think they said that you also needed a 6" lift to run them. Wonder how they would do in Moab?

    I think they'd do pretty well in Moab. In fact, at some point I saw a video on the internet (probably the mattracks web site) where a truck approached a 2' vertical cement wall, and it climbed right up. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Try that with a conventional tire/wheel.
