Mickey Thomson baja mtz mudders

Postby shootable Goose » Tue Dec 04, 2012 8:00 pm

Anybody ever had these tires? Been Thinking about picking up some as my tires on my truck are almost bald. Defintly time to upgrade. Right now I'm running 33s and looking to go to 35s. Any opinions on the MT baja mtz would be appreciated, also what are other mudder tires you would recommend? Thanks

I've never run them but have been running BFG mud terrain KM2's. My second set. I have been really impressed with them. They are very puncture resistant and don't pack up with mud too easily.

Had a buddy run some MTZ's that rode horrible and wore unevenly. Could of just been a bad set though. Had really good luck out of the new Nitto Trail Grapplers. Also might wanna look at Toyo Open Country.

I've also been looking at the nittos. Only problem with these big mudders is its about $1600 for a set of 4.

Yeah they're pricey, especially depending on how big the tire and wheel. The Toyo's will usually be the most expensive. What size wheels do you have?

Wheels are 18". For tire size, I wouldn't want to go any smaller than 305/70R18

Was gonna tell you to try looking at a Maxxis Buckshot if you wanted something cheaper but they dont make many in an 18" more 15" and 16".

I've heard really good things about them regarding traction and wear on Jeep-sized vehicles. I imagine they'd wear a lot faster on a full size truck. I had KM2s on my Jeep and they were pretty good, tread life was great (but again, on a Jeep), traction was good off road, but sucked in the hard-packed snow and ice and they were super loud once they wore down a little. The tires I had before that were Interco Trxus MT's which were awesome on road and off, even on packed snow and ice, however they wore terrible. When my truck is due for tires I think I'm going go with a more MT/AT hybrid like the Duratrac or **** Cepek FCII. A good friend of mine has had FCII's on his 2500HD Duramax for several years and swears by them. The first set he had he got over 60k out of, he's currently on his second set and has probably 40k on them and they still have good tread.

buckshots wear horrible on anyting but a light jeep or non full sized truck.

MTZ's are a great tire I know a few guys who have had them and loved them. only other options for MT tires for me (for something that gets driven on the road) would be Nitto trail or mud grapplers, toyo's or cooper stt's. no other MT's wear or handles as good as those on the street.

tsl radials great on the highway (last a long time) and even better off road :thumbsup: or if your gonna be mainly off road supper swampper boggers are the best, next to tractor tires

TSLradials dont last long on the road compared to a Nitto, mickey T, or Toyo.

my brother had 41in Irok radials and they didnt last 35k, along with my buddy that got some 31in tsl's for his jeep had them for 4-5 months and they were 1/2 tread when he took them off.

Thanks everyone for the input. I ended up getting a set of used 35x12.5 MT bajas on Craigslist for a steal. So far they ride nice and look even better.

Looks good! I always liked those tires, the sets I've had wore good and weren't overly loud. :thumbsup:
