Very very true. An MT loses it's "MT" performance a lot sooner than an AT or other type of tread too though.

For what I personally buy and use MT's for, they aren't much good anymore by about 8/32". They still hold air, look fine, work fine on the (dry) road etc. But with only a 1/4" of tread left, they are starting to get pretty useless as an actual mud tire. So, I only keep an MT in service past that if I just can't afford to replace them. If I have the money, any MT on any vehicle of mine is going away at about the 8/32" mark. Which, even on my Jeep, which is light compared to a CTD and has no power at all, means they last less than 40K.

But, those Toyo's pictured above, they really did just kinda suck. I was sooooo sick of hearing them howl and feeling them shake by the time they got down to a quarter inch, I couldn't WAIT to get rid of them. Not as bad as Swampers or anything like that mind you. But for the money? And compared to something like a KM2? They were pretty sucky.

The KMC wheels sure did not help either though. Really poor quality wheels. Had one of them replaced, it took like 3 oz. to balance without even a tire on it! Chrome started peeling off before they were two years old. Crappy tin foil covered plastic center caps engineered to self eject the first bump they hit off road. Etc., etc. I'd consider another Toyo tire, especially the AT2X. Definitely never going to buy KMC's again though...
