Ok, I'm hoping that someone can give me first hand feedback on both of these tires. If I'm lucky, that same person will have first hand knowledge of the MT/R Kevlar, too, for comparison.
So, I'm still debating my next tire choice. Was plannin' on going to a 38" MT/R Kevlar, but Goodyear has better plans for me. So, the Pitbull Rocker and Maddog are getting a look now.
I'm considering either the Pitbull Rocker 37x12.50-17 or the Maddog 38.5x13.50-17. They both spec larger than stated... the Rocker at 37.25x13.5 or so and the Maddog at 38.63x13.4 or so. IIRC, they both weigh about the same.
So, tell me people. What would you do?
For reference, these will be DD'n, but they'll only see about a 7-8 mile trip one way to work 4-5 days a week. My trips to Rausch are about 140 miles and the longest trips I have taken other than that so far are to WV (about 500) and to Maine (about 500 or so, too).
Have you considered Nitto, Trail Grapplers ? They have good road manners, do well off road, and wear real well too on pavement. There are a lot of good tires when you are off road, but to get a good balance for a DD is the hard part. These work for me, and I have pretty much the same driving as you.
