Thanks for the link! I've only found one dealer online(They are pretty high compared to others) and they don't have all the sizes that is listed on GT website. That being said...that website has them priced higher than the MTR w/Kevlar & KM2's! Maybe call around to local shops & see how they compare on prices...

$212 for 35s. I saw these a few months back and have been curious to their performance, especially in the sharp rocks we have here in the NorthEast. My KM2s are getting shredded.

i saw these at a 4WPs in Dallas. First impression was "oh look, its a miniature 5-ton miilitary vehicle tire" After looking them over, here are my thoughts...

The tread blocks are huge! It makes me think traction for crawling would be reduced because of the tread's inability to bite/conform around rocks. Also, having large tread blocks makes me think that onroad traction will suffer as well. There are very few biting edges for wet/winter weather. There are also minimal sipe channels to evacuate water. Along with that, not having sipes in the tread blocks means the rubber will not cool down (as compated to tread blocks that are siped) which could lead to accelerated wear. And, with such large tread blocks, i would be concerned about wear patterns from DD useage. I can see these tires cupping out relatively easy.

It would be interesting to hear from those who have run them and what theyr cheer/jeers are about them...to see if General was able to produce a tire that wasn't an afterthought.

I'm sure they'll do great on the sandy roads in Baja.

Were these originally produced for military only?

I agree that large tread blocks without siping can be problematic.

At least that has been my experience around here (snow, muddy trails etc)
