33" tires

Im runnin 33" BFG a/t's right now and love how they handle but HATE how they look. I live in Wi so being good in the snow is a must. I drive 50miles to work both ways, so the question is... Whats the best DD/mud/snow tire that has a really aggressive looking tread pattern?

EASY....The Mickey Thompson MTZ.

I have had Goodyeears MT/R's..Hated them P.O.S.
Had BFG M/T..not a bad tire. not so good in the snowy or wet pavement. But last a long time.
Would take an MTZ over either of them in a heartbeat. They do really well in the snow. Great in the mud, just fine in the rain and so far I have 40K on them with enough tread left to last through this winter. My Jeep is a DD that runs about 400-600 miles a week in the wonderful Nebraska winters. My next tire will be another MTZ.

Ive heard really good things about the MTZ as a street tire for snow and mud, that would not be a bad choice. There are plenty of good quiet MTs out there, just make sure you get a sipped one for the snow and the rain, and do some research on jeep forums before you settle on one. I do think the MTZ is one of the top 3 tires right now though

If you have the cash, check out the toyo open-country m/t. They are very aggressive and are perfect on the road.

BFG MT as stated over all good tire.. newest version looks better over the one I ran a few years ago. Had two issues, blew out a side wall on some less than impressive rocks.. and panic stops in the rain were sliding one's. Currently run Trxus MT.. decent tire, but does have balance issues, like most super swampers. Does very well in rain, and snow.

Haven't had 33's but here are 31's and 35's:

31x10.50



35x12.50





these tires perform well no matter what terrain you drive in and I highly recommend them. The price is cheap too.

y'all do know Mickey's are made by Cooper Tire. Oh and to the OP I am running the trXus MT's and they are great tires just hard as hell to balance.

whats the highest milage on MTZ's anyone has? Ive got Pro-Junk MT's with 5000 miles and they are shot. BFG AT's Ive seen 80,000 and still look great. I just hate the way they look. I need a good highway tire that looks aggresive. (avg 1000 miles a week). I like the MTZ alot, but dont need to burn them up in 4 months.
