they are definatel pitbull rockers. that looks like more of a DD jeep so it probably a radial rocker although it could be bias rocker but unlikely due to poor street manners if left sitting for more then 24 hours.

Pitbulls are not meant for pavement or some trials they are a true bread trail tire and they are great at that. I love mine and they dont flat spot as bad as my old bias TSLs did but their road manners suck. If you want an aggressive looking tire that's good on the street and trails, look into the KM2s

Most mud tires don't last long on the highway due to the softer rubber compounds used to make them. Several of the guys above mentioned that they don't behave particularly well on road.... I understand that that isn't what you want to hear, but it seems to be the consensus that they are not very well suited for mainly on road driving.....

I only got about 15K out of my TSL Bias Swampers, but bias where much more quickly on the road. Those are definitely the pitbull radials. The bias ones have more of a balloon look in the middle where the radials are more flat.

A good combo street/trail tire is the Nitto Trail Grappler. We actually just started offering them in the 33/12.50/15 variety (that size is new to the market).

If you're just doing the daily driver thing, the BFG AT's are a pretty good (and very durable) tire. Mudders are going to be noisy, give you poorer fuel economy, and not last as long if your primary purpose is on-road driving.
