buffallodan, I ran across your thread on the Speedzilla site asking about the "Differences of TE-610 & SM-610?"
I'm interested in what you ever came up with as I'm considering the same thing. I'm looking for probably 50/50 dirt/road use. Have you found out, or do you believe, it's better to get the TE and buy a set of SM wheels, or buy the SM and get the off-road wheels, etc.?
I had some ideas going into this but I'd like to get your opinion which is the most feasible...
