    Im looking at some new rubber for the K5. Of these which is best from experience with all around use. Mud, snow, paved roads, dirt, rock etc..

    37x12.50x15 wrangler MTR's
    37x12.50x15 Maxxis creepy crawlers
    37x13.50x15 Pitbull rocker
    37x13.50x15 Dick Cepek radial FC II

    I know from checking post that most don't have experience with the maxxis or pitbulls but they both seem to look pretty good.

    Fun Countrys, just because I had a set of them (44s) on my "big truck" over 20 years ago and I'm feeling nostalgic...

    I think the MTRs work great. You might want to measure the tire - it could be 36" true diameter. Dont know if that matters to you or not but MTRs run a little small.

    wow, seems like the MTR's have it so far... I was leaning towards them b/c of some reviews that I have read in some mags. Just wanted to see what you fellow K5 owners had to say about them as well. and for the price they are looking good! Thanks for posting everyone.
