    Just wondering if anyone has bought a set of the MT/Rs yet?
    Am thinking of going and getting a set and was just wondering how they handled off road ,in the mud and what the road is like if any. Thanks

    <font color=blue>where did you get MT/Rs for $151 [​IMG]? the cheapest i've seen them is $198(!). my truck is in need of tires, I like the MT/Rs and if i can find them for $151 each, i'll get them. Are they 35s or 33s?</font color=blue>

    Sorry about that...hehehe. I bought another set of 33x12.5's. Haven't bothered bringin in the paperwork yet as i spent all night after the sun went down waxing the top on the Chalet...can'tattempt that manuever in the day time as the 100+ temps will make the wax a perminant addition to your paint and the heat will fry your brain! I bought the tires at a GOODYEAR dealer in Phoenix Az.....at the Metro Center...they had to go to the warehouse for them. They actually had 3 33x12.5 MT's in stock...but the numbers are dwindling fast as they are no longer being made. I'll post a report of how they handle at 65mph or so on the way into work tonight. So far though i am pleased as punch!

    This is great news from a great site, you guys are the people I want to hear reviews from. I am in desperate need and have been running 35 inch MT for about 6 to 8 years. I heard the MTs were discontinued but I tried to get them anyway. I paid the guy then he called the warehouse and just as I suspected he told me they were disc. and the MT/R's were $38 more a tire. He felt bad so he gave me a discount and they were almost the same price as the MT's. I told him I had to think about it so he gave me my money back and gave me a written estimate with the discount in case I decide to buy. Glad to hear good things, maybe I will go ahead and order them. I wasn't sure at first because I like the old tread pattern better but if the news is good off road and they ride good on the street then they are mine. I was going to ask this very question today.
