New Simex tyres (longish)

Well, I've just got home after a couple of hours off road with the new
tyres and they get full marks. The site wasn't as muddy as I would have
liked but where there was mud of any depth the Simexes just ploughed
through.
Rock faces required significantly less momentum and therefore I had more
control. Where I was most impressed though was ruts, the site is used by
off road instructors in 110 landrovers with 35" tyres and they leave
*very* deep ruts when the ground is soft, With the BFGs (Mud terrains
BTW, Lal) there were many occasions where I was literally stuck in a
rut, they (the BFGs) just didn't have the side grip to pull me out, but
the Simexes were fantastic, everytime I wanted to exit a rut I did!
Heres a comparison of the 3 sets (marks out of 10),
Bronco Grizzly Claw (31x10.50x15)
Mud 9
Rock 7
On road 3
Ruts 8
Lateral slip 8
Wear 4
Price 5
BFG Mud Terrains (33x10.50x15)
Mud 9
Rock 7
On Road 8
Ruts 3
Lateral Slip 3
Wear 7
Price 5
Simex Jungle Trekker 2 (33x10.50x15)
Mud 9
Rock 9
On road 7
Ruts 8
Lateral slip 8
Wear (dunno yet!)
Price 3
So the totals look like:
Grizzlys 44/70
BFGs 42/70
Simex 46/70 and (if wear is average - 5 points) that gives 53/70
This is all subjective of course, and time will tell if the Simexes live
up to expectations.
PS Lal, what measurements do you want me to take exactly?
