Exclamation tire choices......

ok, my swampers have FINALLY got to where they need replacing. 40+ k on them between 2 jeeps. anyway sense u cant get them right now im havin to downsize which aint a terrible thing(gas!) so goin to a 35 instead of 36. i am stuck between a few tires.

first choice is the mtz, i love the look and have heard great things about them, dunno how they wear tho. they are also on back order b/c of the amount of sale on this tire.

second is the claw. i have seen them in a mud race and do pretty good. heard they wear pretty fast tho.

third is the bighorn. i had a set on my bronco 2 when i was 6 and they took that lil thing thru anything. even pulled a few bigger trucks out with them. rode good and wore pretty good as well.

idk of any other choices that wouldnt be $$$ maybe the new wranlger?

give me ur input guys, ill be ordering within the new week or 2!

I would get either the Bighorns or MTZ's, both wear great. I ran the Bighorns and got about 40k-45k out of them and that's daily driven and wheeled 2-3x a month when I had them. I had a friend that ran teh MTZ's and pretty same thing, great wear and good road manners.

The Claws are directional, so sometimes directional tires can be a pain.
