Which tires?

Mickey Thompson mtz or Goodyear duratracs? Will be mainly on road use with some occasional trail to somewhat hard trails, not serious rock crawling though

The MTZs are one of my favorite tires and I have worn 2 set below the nubs but for the type of driving you are taking about the Duratracs are a better choice. They really are a balanced great all around tire. Unless you really like the looks of the MTZ and don't mind the noise and lower tread life.

Spinlock's right, the Goodyear is a better choice for a DD. However, I'm not a fan of Goodyear, I find them too soft for the way I drive.

My daily has the MTZ and I drive a lot. Not nearly as noisy as I thought they would be and the ride is really good even at 80 mph. If the highway is bumpy you will definitely feel it though.

And they look great.
