Tire Time

Its time for tires on my tow rig. It a 2001 Dodge 4x4 with the Cummins.
I'm looking at 285-75 x 16 MTRs
I'm not 100% sure yet.
Has anyone tried the "Trxus M/T Radial" yet?

I know they are SERIOUSLY siped... more heavily than any other tire.

A friend has them on his nearly stock FJ-40 that is pretty much just a street rig, and he really likes the ride quality.

I've heard that the STS wears quickly, Haven't heard a thing about the wear of the MT's...

Might want to consider MTR 37x12.50x17 as they are E rated. Just a thought.
79 CJ-5 a bunch of stuff but no chrome, no Bestop, no Genuine Steel and no Steel Horse.
383 LT-4. D60, D44, D300 4:1, SM420, SOA, 4-link w/double shackles, etc.

88 YJ, 350TPI, 700R4, D300 4:1, rear SOA D44 w/Warn floating axles, coil front D44 w/Warn Axles
