Thank you all for the input. I never called it a mutt either, but there you have it.
The idea behind the NATO tread was to have a military looking tire that had some road traction. If you get a traction tire it doesn't look military and the NDCC is not good on hard roads. Maybe siping will improve that a little.

I never called it a Mutt either but when faced with the paperwork, And the military's love of acronyms, I go along with it. I still don't use the name for the most part but it is what it is.
