blake32 Thanks for all your input. I have decided I will sipe the M/T Baja Claws I am purchasing for a sweet price. I do like the looks of the TrXus tires above.

JD95YJ I've ran Baja Claws, TSLs, BFG M/Ts, and now Nitto Trail Grapplers and I'd say the Trail Grapplers are a way better choice out of the few I listed. They do great in all conditions.

I've only slipped once and it was minor. I was going around a sharp turn going about 40-45mph in heavy rain (shouldn't have been driving like an idiot). It wasn't enough to lose control or anything...just went over the line a little bit. I haven't had these in snow yet though so I don't know personally how they perform all around.

its all about the siped.
i had 60% tread left on my procomp x-terrains(big tread blocks) they would slide all over the place in the rain. so i siped them.. and wow! what a difference. stop like champs in the rain now.

My new Hankook MT's are another story. I have 0 issues on wet pavement. Great tire so far

lindel The Cooper STT's I had did ok on ice/snow, but I was smart enough not to try and push too hard. Only had one instance of slippage in rain, during a panic stop.

bondosgto My fierce attiude's are good in the wet, and dangerous on ice.

Salty1 No problems at all with my Toyo MT's. The large puddles seem to jump out of the way when they see them coming as they throw the water everywhere and stay right on track....

DavidW954 I've got Mickey Thompson MTZ'S. If anything the feel better than the stock AT's from my Wrangler. And they don't feel any worse than the General Grabber AT's I had on my old TJ either (but that was a while back). All 31x10.5x15. In Europe tyres are tested and there is a rating scheme for stopping distance on wet roads. Copper's AT3 is rated as a B and the STT is rated only one level below as a C. A is best performance ad it goes to an F, so from the testing it seems mud tyres are pretty good these days. Hope this helps?

Best MT on wet pavement?

My son wants to replace the A/T street tires on his '98 TJ with MTs, but is aware of the loss of traction and stopping distance on a wet road. Which MT design tires have you guys had better success with on the street?

I have run BFG MTs, Dunlop Mud Rovers, Super Swamper SSR Radials, Super Swamper TSLs, and Boggers in the past, none of which were great on a wet street.

He will be using a 31x10.50 or 31x12.50 size tire on a 15" wheel.

Any input is appreciated. Thanks!
