depends on your style of wheelin. MTR great for dry weather crawlin and rocks, not so hot in the mud. BFG are fairly good at just about everything. having ran both i would go with MTR but they are a little more $$$

My experiance shows the BFG's lasting longer with street driving. I do think that the MT/R's are a better all around tire though. The sidewalls are thicker and there are some added sipes for wet traction. If you do a bunch of street driving, I would consider the BFG's. My last set went to around 50K with religious rotations and constant air pressure checks. I now have MT/R's and they are great but I doubt they will go to 40K.
