How do you like the Mefo rear?

I'm undecided between a Heideanau K60, the Mefo, or a a Mitas E-07 for my next rear.

MY OPINION (from my experience)
The HEIDEANAU will last a long time. It wears like iron but feels hard off-road. For long trips I will use the Heideanau. I call this a 50% street/50% dirt tire.

The MEFO rides well on and off road. It wears faster but I prefer the Mefo for more dirt oriented riding. I call this a 40% street/60% dirt tire

My favorite rear off-road tire is the D908rr but I can't afford to put one on every 2000 miles.

Can I ask, how many miles on that Mefo in the picture? Looks a bit chewed up...I recall some older posts about the lugs ripping right off, although I thought that was just a bad batch. Thanks.

I used Mitas E09 only for 2000km and hated it!
In the dirt, the grip in the front of the bike, in reduze
I use now a Mitas C17
