The MPT 81 is the most common tire purchased for customers that spend a good amount of time on-road as well as off-road. These tires are quiet at speed, offer low rolling resistance, and do excellent in Sand, Snow, and the Rocks. In extreme mud the MPT 81 tends to have a hard time clearing itself and the MPT 80 is probably a better option. The MPT 81 is a direct competitor to the Michelin XZL.

    I have these tires on a stock 404.1. After 8 or 9 years, and around 25,000 km, they are still going strong. No tire is perfect, but this tire fits my needs. Most of my miles are on pavement, and I have had minimal wear problems with these tires. They are quiet on the road, and greatly improved the driveability and comfort on my truck. I am not impressed with their ability in wet snow, but then again, no tire is perfect.

    I should have added that I run these tires tubeless on stock rims at about 45 psi front and 40psi rear on the road.
