those look like they would just suck at everything.. maybe not my profession of curb crawlin, but everything else looks like a no go..

Every video i see of a truck crawling with MTRs just seems like they're slipping which is why i keep wanting to know why people love them so much..

agree with everybody else....yucky looking. I think the old style, like what i got, suck in the mud...but tear it effin' up on rocks and deep snow. It'll be interesting to read the reviews of these new MTR's. Maybe my next set of tires will be KM2's....

oh...and WTF!?!??? No 35x12.50r15!!!????

I really wouldn't care what they look like as long as they function when I want the to. It does look like an interesting tread pattern.
