What Mud Tires from This list

Which tires out of this list should I get? I need good mud performance, with good on road handling. This is not my only vehicle so I can go pretty aggressive, but I do not have any way to trailer it so I need to be able to drive a couple hours to trails sometimes. My concerns are performance, as well as which ones will last the longest since I cant afford tires every 10k miles. The sizes are all 33"X12.5"XR15 and tires are Radials.

Goodyear MTR

Mickey Thompson Baja Claw TTC

Dick Cepek Mud Country

Interco TrXus Mud Terrain

Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ Radial Traditional Light Truck Tire

Mickey Thompsons come with more tread so they may last a little longer

What you mean? Junks or Chunks? Throw dirt, or losing chunks of tread?

Have you looked at the Cooper tires. I bought new tires last year and I got the Discover AT3. They aren't that aggressive but I use my jeep mostly as a DD and occasional offroading. They also have other tires more suited for offroading but I didn't want the noise. Also, they are made in the USA!!!!!!!

Sorry, meant chunks of rubber. Very cool looking tires but I don't think they are meant for the rocks we wheel on. Not sure as that's the only set of them I've seen in person.

+1 on the Cooper Discovers. I had the Stt's And i dont have anything bad to say. They sounded like At tire on road and cleaned out great in the mud.. And they had great grip on hard pack and rock. There Wear is awesome to very durable tire. I did alot of research before i bought them. I love em. the ones in these pics are 35x12.4x15

This pic my tire was under but still grabbing.

I am def staying away from all terrains. Noise on the road is not a concern, traction and the miles I will get out of the tire matter the most. I do a lot of mud and sand.

If I wasn't in the city I might consider it. But the thought of the tread seperating from the tire while I am cruising at 65 in traffic with the amount of lift I have I would be dead. Not to mention that 33 on a 15" rim will drop quite a bit when they lose air.

did you look into the general grabber red letters, they are pretty bada## looking and the nitto mud grapplers , they are a good tire that lasts pretty long with driving on roads and are pretty aggressive. there my pick when i need new tires.

Retreading has come a long way. Especially the way treadwright does their tires. I know 3 people runninh treadwright tires and one guy is on his second set on his tow rig. They love em. If you dont go that roure any run of the mill cheap mud tire is going to perform about the same.

I would rule out the mtrs. The new style isnt ideal in the mud.
Rule out baja claws. They do chunk fairly bad, not sure if the ttc tire fixed that
Nitto mud crapplers are horrid. But I do like the way they look haha.


Fierce mts, coopers, pro comps, mud rovers, all basically the same. Pick whatever is cheapest.

Look into the ooper Tire line, They offer a couple good options for you,

The all terrain tread tire "AT/3"
The big Mud Tire "STT"
and the happy medium tire "ST"

Coopers are all made in the USA. Excellent quality, and very very fair priced.

I know they are not on your list, but dick cepek's crushers meet the criteria that you want. Excellent in the sand and mud with good on road handling. JP magazine did a great write up on these tires saying that they had "Bogger like" performance with nearly twice the tread life. They also claimed that they were able to stay in 2wd longer in places that they had to reach for the "short stick" for with any other mud/rock type tire. Worth checking into at least?

I will jump in on the Coopers. I have them on all of my vehicles. I have WC somethings on my Cobalt, AT3's on my Trailblazer, and 35" STT's on the Jeep. I wanted the BFG KM2's in the worst way, but am very glad I went with the Coopers. A buddy of mine has the KM2's and they are about wiped out after 25,000 miles.

I was on the rocks at the Bantam Jeep Festival with my Jeep and walked right through the pile with open diffs. I watched many Rubicons on KM2's get the strap to get out.

I have only had the AT3's for about a month, but they have been great so far. I can't even get the Blazer sideways in the snow any more.

Anyone ever tried, or heard of Wild Country tires. Their MT tires have great reviews. Made by Cooper.
