    OK, my BFG muds are damn near slicks and dry as hell :eek1: . I'm trying to decide between these two and wanted the brotherhood's opinion. I drive about 100 miles a week and wheel on the weekend. Mostly rocks, trails and barely any mud. The Iroks are about $200 a tire and the MTR's are about $225. Considering the price and the fact that the MTR is a radial and the Irok is not, Do you guys think the MTR is a better tire for me?

    BTW, It's for a 15x10 rim. My current setup is 350/700/208/10/14 4" Lift:wink1:

    This thread could use a poll but the MT/R is the tire for you.

    I would go with the mtr because the irock would wear out really fast with that much street driving.

    There is a radial irock and it would work better on the street but it will still wear out just as fast.

    MTR the Iroks wear too fast. Ever thought about the cooper discovery STT have some friends with them they like them. They seem like they are going to last a while too

    I'm not a fan of the MTR but for the street they will last longer than the IROK.

    I just bought a set of the 37" Radial IROKs and can say that they ride well on the street and of course wheel great. I can't attest to the longevity, though. I liked my old BFG mud terrains but they didn't perform as well off road as these.
