    i have the 37" mtr's...i love em...they have damn good traction on everything i have been on...snow, sand, rocks, and mud...i think that about covers everything...i am on my 2nd set of mtr's since last october but i drive alot!...and since i have the locker in the rear now it is just grinding the tread off quick..but not the tires fault...i will most defentaly buy another set...i would like to go bigger but since they arent made i guess ill just have to settle for the 37" /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    There is another thread about MT/R's vs. BFG MT's

    Under the heading of Tires?

    my comment...too rich for my blood priced them here at $180 for 33's and $220 for 35s thats per tire!! Going with mud rovers probably. If you can afford them MTR's are Bad AZZ!

    So far I've read nothing negative about them, minus the price. But if they are worth it, you get what you pay for.

    Dude... you gotta check out the internet sites... Like National Tire and Wheel or Tyres International. National has served me quite well, and I'll be using them again when I get my 35" BFG MT/KM's. I bought 32" Uni MT's from them, had 'em mounted and balanced at a local tire store, and still beat the lowest local quote by $200, shipping and all! To top it all off -- My uncle owns a tire store down south so I can get most of my tires at cost, but National still beats him by a few bucks!

    Re: Wrangler MT/R\'s

    I just purchased a set of 37's from Discount Tire and they were 191 shipped to my door and showed up in 3 days. I have yet to try them off road but they are fantastic on the highway. I did not know my truck handled that well and I can actually hear my radio, for two years I thought it did not work. I also purchased the road hazard warranty for an extra 100. They will replace the tires due to damage until the tread is 3/32". That might come in handy. I prefer the highway drive characteristics over BFG's and most definately over boggers.

    awesome tire. have the 35x12.50x15's on my K2500 and the 35x12.50x16.5's on my K5. Both cost me about the same - $825 w/mount, balance, stem and get rid of old. Different trucks but i'm liking the MT/R's better. seem quieter on the road even with a more aggressive pattern. good siping.
