My buddy works at the factory. I'll see if he has heard anything about production numbers.

im not gonna trade my brand new krawlers for used mtrs. im actually hesitant now on the 40s because they do run so big. i really would like a 38" mtr. LOL wondering what the 37 mtrs actually measure. my old style ones measure 36 right now and i wish i had something right between them and my 39 krawlers.

hmmmmm more thinking for me i guess.

My brand new 37 Mtr/k's measured I think 37-1/8" aired up but off the jeep. If I remember right the wheels were 17x9.

I don't think you could afford the deal.

I thought yours were new. Oh well. I'm leaning towards 40" Creepy Crawlers.

Bump. 38x14.5x17 mtrs or 39.9x13.5 x17 iroks

They seem to measure the same height. Price difference of 200 more for mtrs

I would say mtrs, I like the way they have a flatter tread pattern compared to more rounded irok, seems to me if you just wanted to take a quick ride threw the rocks or trails the mtrs would have a better contact area over the iroks without airing down

Iroks. Great sand and snow tire and IMO better in mud. I've watched a lot of different tires on rocks and any bias tire seems to work about the same. Each tire will have its better moment depending on line , driver, spotter, etc. I like the open tread of the Irok.

Put the extra $200 towards a spare.

I am not saying the MTR is a bad choice either. I just think the sidewalls are too weak for the midwest/Canada.

Not a trick question. I've seen sticky treps many times but not dot. On the other hand, maybe I have seen them but not realized what they were. Who has run them besides Jesse? I honestly never paid attention that they are even available.
