Re: Yeah, yeah, another tire question :p
You mean you read WD-40's report? I know a lot about them because they will probably be the next tire I buy, but I don't think I did a report on them. WD has tested them in a variety of conditions and likes them. I think for a more agreesive tire that still has good street manners, this is the tire. I like siping though, and I would have these tires siped.
As to Wild Countries, Les Schwab is the retailer I know of with these, but they are actually made by TBC tire corp. <a target="_blank" href=http://www.multimiletires.com/about/index.html>http://www.multimiletires.com/about/index.html</a>
This link takes you to the Wild Country tires. Find the TXR's and you will get a decent pic. This tire works well everywhere. It is hampered in mud due to not really any staggering of the outer blocks or lugs, and lack of a sidewall tread of any kind, which the MT/R has. It does clean fairly well though, the lugs are large like the MT/R, not small like a BFG MT, and there is plenty of siping. You could even stud these. They are a bit noisy on road, and mileage will just be OK. They have a fairly soft tread rubber, so wear will be so-so. Price was in the $140-150 range for 35's. They have worked well in snow. Oh almost forgot, I run these in sand too and they do well. Just an alternative, can't go wrong with the MT/R's though.
