They didn't need kevlar in these. They need to change the tread design to actually work in mud.

THose look even worse. Be nice if BFG made the track edge again or the radial rover RT was in a few more size and load range options.

I wish procomp made x-terrains like that. I wonder if it really makes a difference.

OK, if you say.... That is a directional tread design...... You would not want one tire running a different direction to another.
