yup those are the tires i liked first right off the bat when i first saw the 2 tires . . .But i figured i had better see if other folks pick that tire out as the better off road traction tire as well.

I think it would depend on what you are going to be driving in.

I think over all the ones on the right are best suited for off-road with bigger lugs and wider spaces between the lugs.

Do you have bigger pictures?

I think for off-road that big lugged ******* will do pretty good! Probably make a hell of a hum on the highway though.
