Very nice review...I looked through about 7different reviews for 7 different tires and they all sound the same. I think all the top selling tires will work just fine. They all have a good and not so good aspect. I don't have ice and snow very often so not to worried about that. For me...I am big on aggressive looks and performance over noise and freeway driving. I drive my jeep once a week to a meeting approx 1hour each way so not to much wear and tear. The Cooper STT looks very intriguing but I am still leaning towards the Toyo Open Country because I ran them on my Dodge 2500 mega cab and loved them. Maybe its time to venture out and try something else.
I'm running the Nitto trail grapplers and I like 'em.
Those are mighty handsome tires. They are one of my first choices. I think I'm on the right track. You all have nice rigs and play in the same playground. It comes down to which is available at a decent price. I don't mind spending a little more for what tread I like. All of your input is appreciated.
No--see the info below that I got from Mickey Thompson® Baja MTZ Reviews, I had looked into these tires as well. I thought this was a bit of information that many people, like myself, may not know.
