Opinions on Dunlop Rover M-T Tires
I need help I'm trying to find a aggressive looking tire at the same time not toooo costly these Rover M-T's I had found were $199.00 for 285/70/17 (32.8") tire and I had read alot of reviews about them and alot of people liked them. Just seeing if there is anymore opinions or recommendations. Thanks!

I have read a couple of reviews about them. Everything is hear is good, long lasting and the tread pattern looks pretty good. I might be putting them on for my next setNever thought 35's would fit w/ only a leveling kit. Haha

I have not had good luck with dunlop tires they have wore out fast and they just seemed to be like b-c grade tires.
A while back I got some pathfinders and they have been suprisingly good tires!

I had a guy change his out after just shy of 30k. He said they just wore out way too fast. But I've never had tho, so I can't confirm it.2010 Equinox LT

I've got a set of the old style for my Explorer. I've liked mine. This new style doesn't look as open as the old style without the shoulder lugs cut away like the old style. I wonder if they will clean as well and otherwise have as good of traction?
Mine may be wearing faster than I'd like, but it's hard for me to say. I didn't expect an MT to have a long life, so I got a cheap set of wheels for a second set and run another set of tires most of the time -- swapping on the MT's when it's time to go "play"
In order to get a better set of opinions, what are looking to get out of an MT tire? A lot of the comments so far have focused on longevity. Is longevity important? In other places it gets said that, if longevity is most important, then an MT tire is probably not what you want. In general an AT or HT tire will last longer than an MT. What about traction and off-road performance (that's usually what I think of when discussing an MT tire)? Are you expecting to sacrifice some longevity for off-road traction?'98 K1500 Suburban LS 5.7 L 4L60E NV246 ARB

If your just doing light offroading then the Dunlops should be fine. They're a decent tire for the price. Just make sure to get road hazard if available at a reasonable price.
