Pro Comp Xtreme MT2 Tires?

Hello there,

I am buying new tires and wheels as mine are out of tread, and I saw these out there and they seemed good... I'm buying 33X12.5R15 size... I couldn't find many reviews out there on them and they have been out for a while now... Anybody out there that runs them? What do you think about them?

I have a friend that runs these, same size and all. He has said good things about them but he also hasn't had them very long.

I have Goodyear DuraTracs. They are great. Look good and do great in snow, mud and ice. Plus, they are not loud.

I had looked at these but I am looking for a more aggressive, mud terrain rather than any all terrain

Imho, it's not a good offroad tire. And despite their 3 ply sidewall I always thought ProComp's sidewalls to be too thin for trails with anything sharp to contend with. To me there are better choices if you want them for offroading.

I was about to buy a set of MTRk Goodyear, but I bought a set of the original Xtreme MT a few years ago. They are not good in very deep mountain snow. Sometimes my Jeep will just stop making forward progress while the rest of the group keeps on moving.
I also sent a stick through the sidewall right next to their Tri-Ply logo Lol!
The closeup picture in the shoot out link above shows the Xtreme MT1. I had to buy one MT2 to replace the one I destroyed. It is a little different. Every other tread edge are now offset/scalloped like most every MT out there. The tread blocks are also stepped like a Cepek Mud Country.
The MT2 is a better tire than the MT1. Would I buy them again? No. I received no help from Procomp on the replacement. Not even a pro-rated price.
The date on the sidewall was just over the 5 yr warranty, even though the tires were not on the Jeep that long.

Something I will always check from now on for any tire I buy. Make sure the date on the sidewall is current, and they have not been sitting in a warehouse for a couple years.

I run these (35") on my wife's JK. It's by no means an off roader but we do get snow out here. With proper rotation they have lasted much longer than I thought they would. Driving in moderate snow they did great for us. Ice too. I would buy them again for her daily driver.

You really need to decide if you are more geared to offroading or pavement. It makes a big difference. If you are more into offroad then it's hard to beat the Mickey. They are awesome, but on the road as a DD not the best.

I run the Xterrains on my (sorry for this) FJ40 and so far have been pleased. It's offroad 75% of the time. I started with BFG and switched to these because of price. Also I have found that tire warranties are only good if the tire damage is everyday damage. A tree limb through the sidewall will usually void the warranty unless the warranty is unrestricted. I also found this out the hard way. Pull the tree limb out and put a steel pipe in its place, say it happened on the freeway and bingo you're covered! Unless its Goodyear. I had a set that had one tire out of round. Took it back after trying repeatedly to have it properly balanced as was told it was my fault it was out of round. Tried two other Goodyear places including Sears. Was told sorry from them all. NO SOUP FOR YOU!!!!

I am currently running Hercules Trail Diggers on my 2000 TJ. I am on pavement 50% of the time and out in cow pastures and deep mud the rest of the time. I have to move feed wagons out of muddy places so the cows can get to them and eat. When a herd of cows get around a 20 foot wagon and the ground is wet it gets deep pretty quick. I use my Jeep to move these 12 ton wagons out of hip deep mud and manure. These tires have plenty of grunt and get the job done. When I bought the Jeep it had BFG A/Ts on it, totally worthless for my application. Would I buy these tires again? In a heartbeat!!!

I was considering these or the GY MTR. Jerry what other choices would you recommend for the rock and roads?
