josea1952 Another vote for MTR's here. Love em, I run the 35's. At calico a lot of people had them.

Dac7529 I got MT Baja claws and for this area southeast
Oklahoma that is I lovem but I haven't ran anything else other than coopper a/TS and they were a good tire but no comparison to my Baha claws mainly cause the coopers were a/ts

suicideking One more for the MTR.

I did a Cleghorn run after a rain a month or so ago. Only people that made it through had MT tires. The AT get much worse traction in the mud and have thinner sidewall.

I went from a 33" BFG AT to 35" GY MTR. Night and day difference with traction on dirt and rocks.

Gunner She knows, she's fearless in the rocks.

I H8RDS Ya.. I loved my Mickey Thompsons, but the MTR's are probably a little bit better for the rocks. Especially the real sharp ones in Calico.

Gunner Yeah lorie did a 3 wheel in the air wheelie on her MTR's They stick in the rocks. Also You can just trim your flares for more flex with out rubbing.

Wish I could have made the Calco trip! Next time..

Thanks for your input!
Thanks! I live to wheel. Like to push the envelope a little. I just held a Calico run but will be posting up a thread soon for another one April 5th weekend.

The pic shows my run from this past weekend. Awesome time

Thanks for the FYI...Think I going for the MTR's with Kevlar. We go to Calico quite often. They should work quite well out there.

Thanks JoeDoggN
Definitely, especially if your jeep is a DD.
But the mtr Kevlar's are another great option.
I've rode in a buddy's TJ with them on and were nice on the street. Didn't have a chance to offroad them.
Those will probably be my next tire just to try something different.

I H8RDS MTR's especially for the sidewalls actually.
03-11-2013 09:50 PM
Gunner Tougher sidewall than a dura also.

Gunner...Right when I thought I was down to (2) tires you throw the MTR's w/Kevlar. What a great review and nice look as well.

Duratrac, Grappler, Baja Claw???

Can't decide and wanted some opinions...What is your experience with these or do you have a preference with another tire?
