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

x2 bro. A fiance' jumped off the hook when I was 19 also (yes I said fiance'..) . Mine had only been around for just over 2 years though, not 3 It is rough man but youll get over it eventually (for the most part....) and youll find someone better. Untill then, just love life man. Nothing like being single on a good day Also, love your ride bro. If your anything like me, my Camaro is what got me through all my rough times, and now my Jeep is taking over quite well. Anywho, youll be alright bro just give it some time.

Now, the original poster... Hurry up and tell that broad to start driving up your way, and get them Swampers you really want

I used to fill up twice a month so ~2 weeks and it costs me ~50 each time to top it off. Honestly i rather give those 50 bucks for gas and drive to my gf's house than be single... (as i stated above we broke up..2ish weeks ago )
06-04-2007 07:15 PM

JCS05Rubi make her move, or get a new gf, or make her drive, and get the swampers gfs are easy to find with a set of swampers and a jeep
06-04-2007 08:26 AM
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
MOz 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.

debruins 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

from memory you have to be 18 to open and use an account for eBay AND pay pal.. i didn't see your age on ur profile.. I'm coming from the same place though.. it wouldn't let me open an account until i was 18 even though i had my own debit card.
06-03-2007 06:38 PM
debruins my parents are a very big fan of C.O.D.
if you dont know what it is...

http://www.ups.com/content/us/en/shi...added/cod.html

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

$550.00 shipped for a set of 33X12.5 X 15's on Fleebay.

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!

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
debruins 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

They are wearing much better then I thought they would. I have had them right at a year and have 21,000 miles on them. Still have right at 2/3 of the tread left that I started at. 14/32 of the 19/32 I started at.

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
cnt487 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.........
