Is anybody using the M/T tire that is 8.5 wide?

Did at one time, a long time ago. I know for a while they quit making the 8.5, is it in production again? We ran them about 7-8 years ago on a 7.90 car and they worked well, didn't see any difference over the 8 wide. I switched to the Hoosiers 18x10x8 just after that due to cost and IMO a better tire. Put 1.2" more rubber on the ground per tire over the 18x8x8 M/T and I feel a more stable tire.
I switched due to cost, but if they we're the same dollar I'd buy the Hoosiers still.
