Toyo MT or MickeyThompson MTZ?

New JK (2 weeks old). Mostly a DD with a little off-road if I can find a place to go in CT tri-state area. Looking at a 2" lift and 33" tires. Love the look of the Mickey Thompson's but was recommended to go with Toyo MT instead. What do you folks think?
Thanks in advance

dd, 33's, little offroad? no need for muds...those are specialty tires and are specifically great on...u guessed it...MUD. the stock sra's are very quiet, very nice dd, and can handle light offroad duties. for ur setup, 33's can fit on stock no prob...with the 2 lift, you'll have "the look"

if you want to step it up a notch, you can go all-terrains. bfg a/t, kelly safari tsr, wrangler duratrac, toyo at2, cooper discover, terra grapplers, dick cepek, falken wildpeaks to name a few.

i suggest you go with a "p" rated tire based on ur goals. they last longer than "LT", less weight, priced more affordable, and great drivability on/off road (just don't expect em to last when u go through jagged rocks.)

Have been running the Toyo's for three years, and no tire problems. Granted the Toyo's are a heavy tire, but with no flats, rips, cuts etc, they are worth every penny. I have hammered on these tires on many Northern Calif trails. ( Rubicon, Fordyce, Barrett Lake, to name a few.) Have run 5psi in snow, and 10psi in the rocks with no beadloks 15x8 rims. They also can go down the freeway at 70 all day.

I just ordered my second set of MTZ's. I air down to 8-10# in the rocks without beadlocks. On my Beadlocks I've aired down to 5#. They are an awesome tire...often very overlooked by Jeepers. Yet, I consistently have people come and ask what tire are you running. It hooks up where others don't. I looked at Toyo, MTRw K and all the other big name tires...went with MTZ's again.
If you google Mud tire Shoot out, they took third out of a lot of other big name tires....
If you check out ONLINETIRES.COM they have them on sale...then go to Extreme Terrain here on WF and they will match the price AND ship free.

I run 35" mtz's on my yj. I've had them on there for 7 years but they only have about 6,000 miles on them. I have chunked them a bit, but nothing to write home about. I too run them on northern ca trails that consist mostly of tire eating granite. I generally air down to 10 psi on 15" wheels. I think they hook up better than the old mtr's or km2's that I see a ton of. Wet performance on the rocks is awesome. Dry is insane. They are a softer durometer than others that I have stuck my gauge on. Explains why they hook up so well.
