I would say mt/rs are better, but you pay more for them as well so its what you wanna spend

They all have their uses.. MT/r's are a great all around tire... very bad in clay mud vs say bfg m/t. Very expensive. When you tear a bfg.. which are known for having above average sidewall tuffness like that.. makes you wonder about our magical RT/S that come on 1/2 of all new trucks....

You cant put the MT/R or the BFG M/T in a class with a Super Swamper, because "Mud Terrains" are made for mud and on road use. The super swamper are intended for just off road use, even though people use them on the road. The mud terrians are made with a much harder rubber making them better for on road use. Super Swampers are made with a softer rubber, so they dont really get good road miles.
