all terrian tires...

I searched and cant really find anyone on here with Mickey Thompson ATZ's... Im looking to go to 33's soon after i get my lift and was wondering if anyone has heard good things about these.. im looking for a all terrian that handle good in the rain and snow.. since they dont really plow down here where i live... and one with some off road capability.. anyone else have other suggestion? thanks

Nothing beats the BFG A/T! We actually got plenty of snow this winter and out Jeeps did pretty damn good in it, about 2ft worth.

Ive said this before, but I had a buddy buy a set of General Grabber A/Ts because he wasnt rich, and they looked like they would clean better than BFGs.

These were put on a 2WD Ford F150, and he has had ZERO issues with them, in fact he swears by them. This is all hersay, but he says tread life is GREAT, ride is good, noise is minscule, I have personally seen its mud performance (which is better than any A/T I have seen in person) and I assume its good in the snow but we dont get much here.

Just another opinion, good luck!

x2. I whole heartedly agree. We live in western Pa., and my wife and I both run the BFG A/T's. They do well in rain as well as snow. I also run mine off road, with good results (as good as an A/T will do).

No one has any problems with the BFG A/Ts hydroplaning when on the highway during a nice downpoor?? I had the BFG A/Ts before I got the M/Ts and I have had them both get squirrly on me when on the highway in the rain. I think I'm about to go with the Mickey Thompson Baja Claws hear shortly. Anyone have any input on the Baja Claws?? Hey RustyNBeatin, I'm not tryin to highjack, just thought you might wanna hear some feadback on these too. Ya know, just to keep all yur options open.

What width of tire and rim on the AT's were you running? The only way I can see a problem with them is if you were running them very wide. I liked mine in the rain.

325/60r15 is the size I had and have now. I guess this could have been the problem, too wide. According to the metric converter is says: Diameter-30.4" Section Width-12.8" & Section Height-7.7" Does this mean they are as wide as a 12.5" and about as tall as a 30" tire?? I'm about to get some 33x12.5s anyways, but have always wondered about the ones I currently have.....

I never had a problem in the rain. My mothers XJ doing about 65-70 in a monsoon on the US60 was fine I think she has 10.5 wide tires.

12.8 x .60 = 7.68"

( 2 x 7.68" ) + 15 = 30.36

so 30.36/12.8R15s

I'll echo that. I put BFG's on my TJ because for a couple of years it'll be my DD. But I have the Generals on a 72 GMC 4x4 PU, and it does great in the mud. Have no idea how they perform on the road.
