Thank you! exactly the kind of answer I was looking for, I am going to get a price on them from a local dealer tomorrow. only reason they were not in my original list is the two local shops i talked to don't carry cooper so I wasn't even aware those were such a good match

I do know that both Mickey Thompson and dick cepek are mostly manufactured by cooper so I wonder how similar they are

tire wear of m/ts

hey guys looking for some help with choosing a tire! Winter is slowly approaching and I know my 50 dollar CL bought tires need replacing. Basically i have narrowed it down to a few tires and I am wondering what will serve me best on the highway, in the snow and off road. I am looking something that will wear good. My jk is a DD but it sees a good share of all the off road elements. I really want a set of 33x12.5r17s because my 285/70r17s are just too narrow for my 9 inch wide wheels. I am looking at the Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ and the Dick Cepek Mud Countrys as a best fit. Also in the runnings are the General Grabber red letters (weight is major down side) and the Nokian Vatiiva M/T (anybody know anything? i need more info)... Also would maybe consider the National Chaparrel MTs but i cant find anything about them, so info would be nice if anyone even heard of them. Also I thought about the Dick Cepek FC-IIs but i dont think they are aggressive enough for me. So please help me out by sharing your vast knowledge guys! It is very much appreciated!!
