automatic type rear lockers?

Does anyone know how good the automatic rear lockers are. Do they cause a lot of tire wear or anything along those lines. And if they are good what type should i get? Thanks

No the type of lockers that are always locked but will let one tire spin a little faster than the other such as a Detroit locker.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Power Trax makes a couple of good ones, the Lock Right, and the No Slip. The only odd behaviors they have is if you give it gas while turning, they will lock, thus causeing the inside tire to scrub. They also can make a "Pop" sound from time to time, but its normal.

My Toyota LSD rear end does this. It kinda ticks me off because I know that it is eating tires much faster than if it was an open diff or a manual locker. However the clutch disc LSDs (like the Toyota LSD on the 05-08s) don't make a popping sound. They just wear out clutches.
