get some General grabbers. 60,000 mile tread life with badass tread pattern and the optional red letters that I think just look cool. I think those tires are perfect all around. I love my w/ Kevlars but on road and gas mileage is killing me.

I've seen them do very well off road. They arent quite as good for a mud tire but for rocky trail conditions they seem well fitted. The sidewall is not as heavy duty as some others so care should be taken when rocks can reach out and take chunks from the tire. The two door commander in my hidden falls photos had them.

They are a great tire if you don't mind a little noise. I have not played with them in the mud but in the rocks, sand, and snow they are really good. I have about 8K on mine and the look like new almost, I can't see any wear.

Yea Revo's that's what I said... I know you were a bit cautious at the Badlands last year because of the lack of tread. Bet they were fun over the winter! Have you considered silent armor's? Tymac likes his - and several others over the years here have given them good reviews here.

I am wanting a more aggressive tire. I am trying to find the the right balance between good off road and on road performance. good off road tires generally means tires wear fast and is bad on wet/icy roads. On road tires generally mean less grab in mud. I have been thinking about this for months and I still am not sure what tire to get. I like the KM2s one day and the duratracs the next. I am worried about the duratracs because of their softer rubber, but they are one of my front runners. I will have to pull the trigger soon before snow falls.

Anything Goodyear has always been good to me. Replaced the Forteras with SilentArmor Wranglers that were perfect on road and off. Now the MTR Kevlars cause they are the most badass tire on the market. If you can deal with the noise! I have even hit 100MPH. Professional driver (Emergency Vehicle Operations Certified), closed course (CA-395). It was official police business. My point is the tire is expensive, it is unstoppable, and I love it. But dont know how long it will last.
