Are they replacing the old carcass completly with that one? Or are they doing what BFG did an start to phaze it out?

I like the old one better imo

Looks to be a directional tread too. The design looks like it would have some bite but I guess we will see how much off road capability has been traded off for on road performance...

Looks stupid imo. Its looks like they took 2 different halves to tires and put them together.

obviously I can't speak for performance, but they aren't pretty looking.... and I hate those sidewalls.

Looks like the old style would perform better(Mud&Rock). The voids don't seems as big with this design. At least not in the middle of the tread.

I don't like it. I like the others/older style better.

Older MTR's look better. Seems like the older design would be better off road too.

They come in the perfect size for you 40X13.50R17LT. There are a few guys that have them coming in already next week in that size, they should have a review in a couple of weeks.

not a big fan of the tire. Im pretty sure its an Asemetrical tire (sorry if spelled wrong) that means its not directional but it does have an inside and an outside. like a lot of high performance street tires are doing. part of the tread for highway and rain other part for offroad.

WTF it looks like they couldn't decide between making another A/T or M/T so they fused them together.
