Real quick question on tires....

Ok.....I decided on Firestone Destination MT's (285/75R16)

They are comin in on Monday but I saw some Mickey Thompson's today and loved em. Which would you go with?


1) Firestone Destination MT
2) Mickey Thompson Baja Claw Radial
3) Mickey Thompson MTZ

I don't go offroad very much but like the aggressive look. Tread wear is an important factor

I just bought some 30x9.5x15 firestone destination m/t's.. and ill have to say they are hands down the best tire i have bought.. really aggressive for daily driving.. but i dont mind.. wont let u get stuck in the mud even if u stopped in it.. i got all 5 for 585$. i get some humming at 45ish.. and then when i am breaking... But awesome all around... Hope that helps a little..

I have 33x12.50x15 firestone destination MTs and have 8000 miles on them tread depth wear is ok but starting to see a little cupping and have rotated x2 but compaired to my interco trxus the firestones are great but if you are looking for longevity none of the ones you selected are going to give 50 or 60k IMO.

I donno about the Claws but MTZ's have seen 30-45k with mild trail usage and regular rotation.

My Claws chunked up pretty bad after that last trip I took. I'm not certain I'd buy them again.

I really liked my BFG All Terrains. Wore really well on road and performed GREAT off road. Also there was no tire noise with them whatsoever.
