33x12.50 Mickey Thompson MTZ's mounted! (w/pics)

Well, I finally got on my Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ's (33x12.50x15)! These are mounted on U.S. Steel Daytona "D" window wheels. The backspacing is 3.75" and works absolutely perfect. I went from 285/75/r15 apache suv tires. The change in power is minimal loss, and I really didnt notice it too much. It actually rolls pretty well, and the road noise is there, but not abnoxious. I just need to paint the centers of the wheels, and it should be ready to roll... well here you go:

AFTER:






THE 285/75r15 NEXT TO THE 33x12.50x15

looks really nice. the tires look a lot more aggressive. now you just need some black center caps or some black spray paint.

I'm still wondering if I should go with those... I wish they would make a 32" version

Looks great though!

Looks great. Bigger tires make a Jeep look like a real Jeep. Don't worry about the centers.... you'll get used to them like that.

they are the bestop flares. they came with the jeep when i bought it. they are growing on me though... they were really faded, so i painted them back in september with krylon fusion, and they have held up all winter with no chips, cracks, or peels.

thanks for all the complements! I am really liking the look of these Mickey Thompson MTZ's. So far so good!
Cheers!
Jeff

Good decision on tires, thats what I run, and I think you will really be pleased with them, I know I am. And you will get used to the increased road noise.

TJerro, Are you still on wranglerforum? I just found this old thread. How are/did the MTZ's hold out? Mileage, wear pattern?

Mine didn't last long for a DD. 28,000 miles. Great in the mud, not so good in snow and rain. Just my 2 cents.
