what are the disadvantages of running m/t;s on the street besides the noise?

do they wear that much faster?

It all depends on how you drive, the weight of the vehicle, maintenance on the tires (air pressure and rotating). But they will wear faster than A/Ts just because there is less rubber actually touching the pavement.

3/4 ton + heavy foot = no difference in mileage MT vs AT

Ask me how I know.

Mtrs scallop bad, I had them = teh suck. All mud terrains will perform the same. So get the chapest ones you can get. Maxxis buckshots last a while, and BFGs last but they are so damned expensive.
