    If you have MT/R's and you see alot of street miles, how are they holding up?

    Quiet, loud?

    Would you recomend them?

    Thanks:D

    I think they suck on road but thats just me. They are loud and I dont think they wear very well. Id take BFG's anyday over an MTR for road use. They look cool though :D

    I am on my 3rd set, tires progressively got bigger 33" 35" 37" as time went on unlike my male genitalia, but that's another story....lol.


    Anyways, I think they are pretty quiet on the road, they do wear down faster than a BFG, but the rubber compound is a lot softer and tends to grab the rocks better IMO. If you are serious about the rocks then you can't beat the MTR!!

    as far as wear i can't say i have 5000 miles on my first set of 35" mtr's. they ride good, i put 2000 airsoft pellets in each & i think they ride the same as bfg's & better than maxxis. they do okay in mud, but i am used to swampers, & they don't compare, but once again i think they are better than the maxxis. so far i like them, mine are fairly quiet also, but they are still new.

    MT/R's BABY! :D

    I dunno what everyone else is complaining about :confused: I consider the MT/R's as quiet as A/T tires on road, and perform better then M/T tires off-road...

    I have nearly 35,000 miles on my first set of 35" MT/R's right now, and could easily put another 5,000 on them....but it is time to go bigger. I just dropped $2,000 to buy (4) 40" MT/R's so you better believe I like these tires! :deal:

    My MTR's are better than most mudder's on the street, and great for rocks, dirt, and trails, and ok for mud. Good tires.

    The two previous sets of tires I had on my truck were BFG mud terrains and I loved them. I got a good deal on a set of 37" MT/R's from a guy that won them in a raffle so I bought them. I would say they are quiter than the mud terrains, but my truck is pretty loud so I probably wouldn't hear them anyway. They hook up really well in the rocks. I have 6000 miles on mine and wheel them pretty hard and they practically look brand new. I would certainly not hesitate to buy them again (except that they don't make a 42" version yet :D).

    I've got 37s also. Probably about 5000 on mine and like 38377k5 says, they still look pretty new.

    The guys here in Colorado like em, before I bought mine I did a pole on a local site and MT/Rs won hands down. Our conditions around here are rocky and dry. The AZ guys like them quite a bit too.

    As for noise, they're quieter than the Dunlop Mudrovers I had before.

    I had two set of BFG Muds and then a set of MT/R's on my Blazer. The MT/R's were slightly louder on the road, but I thought they handled better pavement traction (softer tread compound I guess). However due to this this appeared to be wearing a little quicker than the BFG's.

    Off-road I thought they worked better in everything as compared to the BFG's. Most of the trailriding is east coast style with lots of dirt, muds, ruts, and some slimy rocks thrown in.

    I think MT/R's are pretty good on the street. They aren't as nice as a BFG AT but they aren't any worse then BFG MT's. They wear out a little faster then BFG MT's but you will see alot more miles then you will with something like Swampers.

    I love my MTR's. There only downfall for me is the sidewalls aren't super tough in sharp rocks and they don't grab rocks well when wet. There sidewalls are tougher then BFG AT's or MT's though.
