I'm getting my wheels this week for my '13 JK (4dr) - but I'm stuck on deciding which tire to go with.
They will be put on ProComp Xtreme 17"s (17x9).
It's come down to the following options:
Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ Radial (35x12.50R17) <-- leaning toward this
ProComp Radial Xtreme A/T (35x12.50R17)
Nitto Trail Grappler (35x12.50R17)
It'll be run 80% on regular city driving and the remaining on trails and mud (when available in Texas).
What thoughts do ya'll have on these three choices? What kind of tread life have you experienced/heard about these? Unfortunately, I've jumped my way around all kinds of threads, and am losing my mind trying to absorb and weed through everything. Please help!
well, so far, I've been driving on my 35" Nitto Trail Grapplers and compared to the stock tire, it's quieter, and very nice driving. A passenger even remarked how quiet they were for being "so large." See them on my JKUR here http://retube.co/jkur
I had the Mickey MTZ's on my 06 LJ before I went to a 12 JKUS and they were great tires. I had 50,000 on them and I traveled all over Florida for my job.
Too bad I had the dreaded OPDA problem and ended up trading for the 12 JKUS. I do like the extra room and better gas mileage though.
Florida Native Cracker Tryin to deal with the Yank's and Snowbird's that keep coming down to start controversy here in Florida! EDIT! We are now having to deal with the Illegal Mexicans, Cubans, Guatemalan's, and Haitians ALSO!!! Where does it end!!! Oh, I almost forgot about the Wild Hog problem!!!
For me, it'd either be the Nittos or Mickeys. I love the Duratrac, but I don't know, just not aggressive enough. The mickeys have great life and wear, I hear other wise on the nittos but I guess it's the driver because lots of people Told me different things on both those tires. I'm leaning towards the nittos my self, but sounds like the mickeys are where you should go.
DANG! I forgot about the MTs!!! Looks like ProComp and Duratracs are dropping from my list.... The Duratracs are not as aggressive... you are correct. I think I'm still leaning close to the MTZs.... (I did forget to mention that my/our other Wrangler already has the Nittos on it.... can't have the same tire on both lol) - but now... that dang MT picture... sigh!
