Every MTZ I see on the highway is going bald.Some folks swear by t6hem others say they ride rough and wear fast.
But alignment has alot to do with wear

The KM2.......try to find a bad review!

The Mickey is a premium tire versus a BFG....they balance better and in our cases drive alot better especially in the winter. Best mileage was 52K out of a 36" on a diesel excursion so I would say thats not too bad.

I got the 31" MTZ's for $472 delivered after the $100 rebate. I had the BFG AT KO's that wore very quickly, even with regular tire rotations and alignments. Prior to this I had really good luck with the BFG's on a small pickup. Post your question on the tire section, and you'll get some more replies regarding the MTZ's. I've only had these for a couple of months, so I don't have an idea how they will wear.
