I run the 42s on the buggy..... More sidewall.

I had damaged two in all the wheeling I've done with the buggy.

1st one, I don't care what tire it could've been, the situation would of ruined any tire.

2nd, developed a pin hole from an unknown cause and only leaked when in the bulge position.

I've run mtrks in 35", 37", 42" flavors. Only the 42s had an issue. And a bunch of people I know have run 35s,38s, and 40s without issue.

I'm good with running mtrks, especially with how well they work across the board in all things.

I also typically run at 2-4 psi.

@9:20 I sandwiched a root bulb with jagged spikes between my sidewall and the embankment with wheel speed. And then to run out the corse like I did, and that tire be salvageable. I think it held up well.

And to have this tire survive.... I think that's pretty good.

They work real well, until they get filled with mud. But you might have the HP to clean them out.

They have impressed me more than once.

Not really, just making a point. I'm bored at work with nothing better to do.

Lol. Seems like it's human nature to defend whatever tire is one one's rig.

I wasn't saying it was better then any other tire, just that I don't feel I've experienced what everyone tends to think.

Obviously I like them. I've bought so damn many of them now .

I'd buy some bias treps if I could find them for what I buy the mtrs for lol.

my generals grabbers would not work well for most people!
horrible in rain and snow! (im parked for the winter anyway)
made for sand and trails only.
looks like they would do "ok" in mud, but not had them in much yet??
they do handle high speed sandy trails really nice though!

i was gonna buy mtrs, but they were on back order.
probably should have got bfg km2s, but im just not a fan.
so i tried something totally different.

my 42" (non stickey) iroks were the best all around tire i have ever owned!
they did pretty good, no matter where i was.
i destroyed one el cheapo steel wagon wheel.
i ripped off one valve stem.
never hurt a sidewall.

I ran iroks once long ago, wasn't impressed. Traded for tsl in the same size, was much happier.

I've been very happy with Iroks in the sand and snow. They seem about average in the rocks. Now Curly will tell you they are the best tire he has seen on his property. (at least that's what he told me a couple years ago) For the most part, most DOT tires seem to be about the same in the rocks when properly aired down on comparable rigs.

He told you that to make you feel special and it looks like it worked

Or maybe it was long ago enough that they were the best........

really. i was the opposite.
i had tsls, tsl radials, swamper ssr, and iroks.
really like the iroks off road.
they just seemed to give me traction wherever i went.

i almost put iroks on my lj, but wanted a smoother street tire.
i do drive this on freeways for distance.

u guys wheel alot harder than i do.
for what i did, i was impressed.

really liked my swamper ssr's on the street, and mild trail too.
a nice tire, that is slightly less aggressive, and looks great.

At the time, for the wheeling I was doing the tsl was a much better fit. They were also grooved quite a bit. I'm sure with the wheeling I do now, a iron would probably work better then a normal tsl.

Well, I was gonna get a bunch done today. But apparently I ran out of shielding gas. And tsc doesn't appear to be open.
