A lot of the PHX guys have gotten themselves Trepadors after slicing up MT/R's and they seam to like them. No first hand experience though.

Sorry, PHX = Phoenix. I do that sometimes when I'm lazy.

And yeah - Stu replaced his MT/R's with Trepadors because of all the sidewall slices.

you Arizona guy have alot of the same terrain as we do
and from what Ive read on those tires they seem to hold up well in the rock
(especially the sharp sidewall slicing rock we havealot of)

I like the maxxis creepy crawler but I dont like the price If i could afford the $350 a tire I would just get the bfg krawler

Since Mickey Thompson is no longer going to be making the super sticky comp compound Claw we are all starting to go to the Creepy and Trep out here. Their Comp Compound is actually stickier than Mickey's.

I like the creepy crawler but $350 a tire I cant afford that
but the trepador is $200 for 35's that's average cost of a radial tire

We don't run them on the street. But the stickiest ones will not be good at all on the road. The regular Trepadors seems to hold up well on the road and trail though.
