The MTZ are my favorite tires so far, they go anywhere I point them, even through sugar sand without airing down. I should have aired them down but I didnt and they did fine. Add to that their relatively low road noise and agressive look, cant beat them for a good all around tire IMO.

This is my first set of the MTZ and they have only seen around 15k still have tons of meat on them, just keep them rotated every oil change and they will wear evenly.

Its bfg km2, search em up, I put the 33x10.5 on mine in July, the only thing I can say about em is that they have GREAT off-road traction and I love the way they sound on the blacktop. I got em for $211 a piece shipped on eBay! I was a little hesitant but they arrived in absolutely perfect condition. As long as you hit the right pressure and don't put off the rotations they will last a long time

Look up BFG Mud Terrains....you can't help but find the KM2.

I have a set of them also, and took them out wheeling for the first time this weekend and was really impressed in mud, rocks, and loose sandy gravel on reallllly steep inclines.

I have about 500 miles on mine and it still hasn't worn off the rubber tits and molding marks on the tread.

My tires make some noise out on the road (what 37 isn't going to??) but it's not obnoxious, I love it. It's a great reminder of what you have installed every time you get behind the wheel. The radio can easily drown out the sound if desired.
