Want input on buying new tires

Well Boba Fett should be driving down the road in the next couple weekends and I've been thinking about selling some stuff to help fund new tires. So my question is to you guys General Grabber red letters or Kevlar Mtrs? Either one would be in a 35". I can get the generals for about $190 and the Mtrs about $230 a tire. What would y'all do?

goodyears purely on looks alone. goodyears because generals seem to be built a little less heavy duty. floppy for the lack of better term.

Mtr's seem like they would have more side bite.

I know it's not on your list but I really like the old school MTR's on 24 bolt hummer wheels that keep popping up. But you never said if 5,6 or 8lug.

These would be on for Boba Fett so 6 lug. I think I wanna stay with 35s because it looks like it still has stock gears. But if I can come across some 6 lug 16.5s i wouldnt mind having some military Mtrs or Bfgs.
