MTRs are good for rocks, thats about it. they arent very good in mud, they are decent in dirt, decent in sand (I Hear, havent tried them in sand), bad in rain, and so-so in snow. Light snow is horrible, deeper snow is ok. Road performance is OK i guess. They are louder than most tires once they wear a little, they wear fast on the street, and they have to be rotated every 3,000 miles. Even if you rotate them a lot, its still kind of a gamble if they will cup and go bad early or not. They arent the worst tires in the world, but there are surely better ones out there.

I would say it depends on the terrain you wheel on the most. Also, are you wanting them street friendly? Given the state you are from, you probably aren't worried about mud, very much. On the rocks, you can't beat the side wall strength of bias ply tires, but they also wear faster, on the road. Iroks are very good on rocks, not so good on street.

we have alot of rock and loose dirt some mud some times when we get rain not often certain times off year even get a little snow in the higher elevations
I want the tire to stick well on the rock with out chunking out to bad
(like losing lugs the first time out)
grip good in the loose dirt and do well on the mild scenic trails
this is my daily driver

You live and wheel in Nevada, I can't think of a better/more rugged tire for the $$$ than Goodyear's MT/R. The MT/R has a strong cut-resistant sidewall which is a nice feature for wheeling in rocks, plus it wears well and is not loud on the street like many other equally aggressive tires are. It isn't designed for deep mud or deep snow but it does far better even in those conditions than a few would agree to. It's a very good all-around tire.
