If you actually wheel it the Mickey Thompson MTZ.

If wheeling is a dirt road a all terrain like the BFG AT.

Cooper Discoverer STT
Mickey Thomson MTZ
BFG KM2 (have them siped if you live in a winter climate)
Edit: Look at the Hankook Dyanapro MT RT03 as well

GY Authority AT

Cooper ST Maxx
Cooper ST
GY Duratrac
Mickey Thomson ATZ


Those are some that I would look at.. The top are MT's the one's at the bottom are agressive AT's

Oh geeze no.. the good year duratrac is great on the road.. there is no such thing as to much of at for the road.. that is the point of at. Great on the road and being a agressive at are and decent to good on the trail..

The duratrac is awesome on the road. It's only fault as a tire for offroading is it's sidewall but if your not hanging out in sharp rocks to often then there is rarely a issue..

Sharp sticks will also go RIGHT through the sidewall of a Duraflat

^ tis is true.. why good year decided on a 2ply sidewall for the duratracs I do not no..

Jason since your running a 16in rim look up the cooper st maxx. It's the best agressive AT the market today. If you don't want a MT and need something that can take a beating and a half offroad while still providing excellent offroad traction that is your tire.. There down fall and why you won't see them talked about as much as say a duratrac is there aren't any 15in rim sizes available and even then still only a limited amount of sizes made.. They also do have a higher price then your typical AT..
Just something else for you to look at jason.. If you do prefer a agressive at over a mt

Depending on where your at in OH, there Wellsville has some interesting rock ledges for climbing.

Maxxis Bighorns, great for DD and still work amazing offroad and in the rocks. I had them in 285/75/16's and got about 3yrs out of them rotating regularly.

It's kindof like one of those mythological things...

I hear the same thing that it's closed, but yet I know people that still wheel there and still pay to get in so not sure what the true situation is.

I also heard that someone might have bought the land as well and it might stay a wheeling park, just with new people running it, soooo who knows... lol
