Maxxis Creepy Crawlers or Pitbull Rockers

So I am at a crossroads, I can either get the Creepy Crawlers or the Rockers, Price difference is only about $60 a tire with the Rockers being the higher of the two. Spec wise they are almost equal, less than a pound for weight, 0.3" for height, about the same for width, only big difference is tread depth with the CC's at 27/32 and the Rockers at 22/32.

Both tires get great reviews, but is the Rocker worth the extra $60?

I'm actually having the same questions right now. Not to steal your thread but also what one rides and wears better? Road noise?

Creepy Crawlers are a much better tire... I used to run the 42" rockers and swapped them out for the 40" creepys, that was the best decision i ever made

Just went with 40 inch creepies for my LJ build. Only drawback with creepies is the limited wheel size. I have run the rockers and they are a great tire too. I like the side lugs on the creepies a LOT. Rockers were unbelievably good in mud and did just fine on rock when I ran them on my JK. Both have VERY thick sidewalls. Rockers are E rated in 40 (as I recall) where the creepies are D rated. Creepies are bias only.

I have jeeps. I do shit to them.

I am already limited because I am sticking with my 16's, and these two tires are my only real choice I got for a 37". Both are bias tires. I have been going back and forth between these two. I like the looks of the staggered tread of the Rockers, but I like the side lugs of the Creepy's. And from the looks of the pics, the Creepy's seem to have a flatter tread than the Rockers. The Rockers in the radial seem flat and not as bloated as the bias ones, but I am stuck with the bias as it is the only one that will fit.

Also, 4 wheel parts says they have the Creepy's in stock.
