we used mtr's on our trophy truck (former walker truck) and we would burn them off in 75-80 miles everyone else was running bfg ktr so we had to go that rout to stay competitive

  these would look sooo sick on a H2!!   :laugh:

they look retarded if you ask me.
the tread is WAY too close together.
It is by no means a "MTR = Maximum Traction / Reinforced" its an AT.

I went out with a couple guys from offroad evo to cougar buttes, and 2 of them were running the 42' flavor kevlar mtr's and the were walking up everything! i have the old mtrs and i would slip a lil before my tires grabbed trying to follow them, one of the guys had the 39 bfg crawler red label before he switched and he said that they bite way better! Im planning on getting a set of the 40s when i get rid of my 37's

Likewise I am also curious as to what happened to cause you to form this opinion?

I want to see pics of some on a semi built rig like most of ours. I hate when people talk :pokinit: about something just because they look ugly. All the reviews I've read say they work great and a buddy of mine that works for 4Wheelparts said they look badass in person.

i went into a goodyear shop a couple weeks ago and saw the tire in person.  I thought it looked kinda dinky, but i didn't see a tire larger than 31" in the showroom.  Just like some tires look better in the bigger sizes, im sure this is one of them. Ive seen pictures of these tires and they looked better than what i saw in person.  just my $0.02

Yeah, thats what I am going for with this post. People seemed to buy up the BFG mudders pretty quick when the new ones came out, I am looking forward to seeing people like us buying these tires, posting some pictures, and giving us real world feed back. All the reviews I have seen and read rave about these tires but I would like to see a 80s or 90s, SA yota running some of them in a 35-40 to see what they look like on something other than buggies, cuz thats all I have really seen pictured running them.
