|ratzila||I had a set of the 38/16/16.5 sts radials on a 90 suburban. They rode great and wore great. Different story offroad. A friend needed to pull a blazer up on a trailer. I went over to his house and hooked the truck up. I ended up spinning the tires on his wet grass. It did not even tear up the grass I ended selling the tires to another friend who put them on a 03 Dodge 2500 cummins turbo 4x4. He loved the tires. They would probably be a good sand tire but a no no for the mud.|

|krankieone||I've been wheeling with a couple of guys running MTZ's and initially thaught them to be a bit wimpy but I was really surprised how they performed . Claws look really cool but are not the best choice for mud as the dont clear too well in clay based soils .If you dont mind a cross ply tyre what about TSL's|

|tiger22||i wouldnt mind going that route either (my drive to work is 2 miles) but my girlfriend lives about 40 minutes away and that trip is what would get me|
|06-04-2007 08:06 AM|
I guess I'm going to be the odd-man out. I'm running the S.S. - TSL's. My commute is less than 10 miles/day so I decided to go for something more agressive on the road.
I've had them for 2 weeks now and have put them through everything mud/dry/wet. I really like them. It makes the Jeep look well ...like a Jeep should look (IMO). I decided to run with the 33" x 10.5" R15 w/stock 5 stars.... I have no complaints.
|06-03-2007 07:04 PM|
yup have to be over 18
my dad is even skeptical about buying a used car, even if he sees it, he always says, "there has to be a deeper reason why they're selling it , there must be a problem"
i guess the only way he knows how to use cars is until they are totaled or are over 250,000 miles and just refuse to work and he cant see why someone would sell it just b/c its a few years old

my parents are a very big fan of C.O.D.
if you dont know what it is...
it works well, but only when people are wiling to try it, most people dont know about or are skeptical b/c they put it in the mail wihtout payment
also if the buyer ends up not wanting it after seeing it inperson then it gets sent back to the seller on the sellers dime, but if they are truthfull then it shouldnt be a problem at all

i have been very pleased with my set of maxxis mudders and also had a set of bighorns on my 4wheeler when i still owned it. they wear well and seem to have plenty of traction when ya need it...
|06-03-2007 06:20 PM|
|tiger22||i was a little skeptical of the whole ebay thing at first also. but after the first (i believe it is $1.50) minor charge to the credit card there is no more UNLESS you buy something. so as long as they understand this they should not have a problem with it. just tell them that before you purchase anything you will give them teh $ for the entire credit card charge. if they have the cash before you charge it should be good to go with them!|
|06-03-2007 06:15 PM|
i would have to convince my parents to open a paypal account and to get an ebay account that will not be easy, not easy at all

The coopers STT's do very good as well. If your on a budget also consider the Maxxis Bighorn. Have seen these on the trail and have been pretty impressed with them. I would still take the MTZ's but for the price the maxxis are tough to beat.
$550.00 shipped for a set of 33X12.5 X 15's on Fleebay.

|tiger22||debru - i have been in the same boat for awhile now. everytime i think i know what i want a something new pops up! but i am telling you, i have not heard one bad thing from ANYONE about these tires. they are even praised in every mag i have seen them in so far. i believe these will be my next big purchase for my junk. i get an extra paycheck this month !!! thanks for the help scoob...|
|06-03-2007 05:57 PM|
|tiger22||the price is reduced cause they are blems. but if its just a sidewall scratch or rough area then go for it. gunna happen sooner than latter after you put em on anyways...|
|06-03-2007 05:54 PM|
well idn the MTZ's seem to be the same price as the claws and the claws are 20each more than the pro comp MT's so idn, i guess i have the same questions as tiger 22 except on all three types of tires
edit: darn im too slow
well i still dont know erghh i guess i have a few months to decide anyway but it is gonna be realy hard, and every time i see it people bring up new tires they think are better that i have never even heard of
|06-03-2007 05:53 PM|
|cnt487||Hey Scoob, your helping me make my decision. Thanks|
|06-03-2007 05:49 PM|
As for mud they do just as well if not better then my old BFG's except the MTZ's have a 3 ply sidewall that is much thicker then the BFG. So you don't worry about sticks as much when you hit the mud.
We really don't have a lot of rock gardens here in Nebraska. We do go down to Kansas and play on some rock ledges every month or so. They do very well on them also.
I have had BFG m/t's, MT/r's, Trxus, and dunlops. IMO these are far superior to any of them as an all around tire and by far the best handling on the street of any of those.
|06-03-2007 05:42 PM|
I'm really likin those MTZ's too. I found some on ebay and it doesn't seem like a bad deal, just waitin on the response from the seller for a shipping quote. Thats probably the catch, more for shipping than the tires. Heres the link.........
