I was thinking the same thing. It looks like they are trying to mix wet and dry capabilities but what I see doesn't look like it would work great in either. Part of me wonders if they made those big spaced out shoulder lugs simply because they look totally badass. I would be surprised if Fabian Barrel had anything to do with this one. As far as Mich tires go, Fabian's Wild Rocker is the only tire worth a shit. They need to make him chief tire designer.
