I too am a fan of MT Baja MTZ's. Have you compared them to any other tires of the same size?

Yeh, but I always keep coming back to the MTZ. IMO it's the best all around tire. The nice thing about being in a Jeep club with over 50 Jeeps is that you can see what works without spending your money on it. The new MTR/K held my interest for a couple months but after watching my buddies Jeep try to get through snow covered roads was enough change my mind about them.
Probably the only tire I would ever consider changing to would be the Toyo MT. But due to their weight I wouldn't do that without re gearing since my Jeep spends much of the summer pulling a camper.

Sorry for going off topic KidRock.

Noooo prob. Those aren't as deep set as cragar soft 8's but look like they might still be hard pressed to collect rock rash.

The right tire can really help with rock rash. The MTZ and several other mud tires have a protruding edge that goes right up to the rim. It's main purpose is to protect the rim from damage.

I'm getting either duratracs. (yes I know, you would damn them to hell if you could) or km2's. I'm about to buy a bike. If I get a bike before I need new tires. M/T. If not. A/T.

The people that actually wheel their Jeeps damn them a whole lot more then I do.

I think they are a great street tire if you are after "the look" of a wheeled Jeep.

Well I'll give you a personal review when I buy them. Besides what you've told me. Everyone says they're awesome.

Everyone?

Try doing a google search for Duratrac sidewall and puncture. Great tire for a street queen though. I bought a set for my kids cherokee, they are a pretty good road tire. But his idea of wheeling is a dirt road. If thats all you are after, you will be set.
Might be the perfect tire for you, I hope so.

MTZ Tires

Those look like quality tires. I have a set of 31 BFG AT's that haven't worn very well even though rotations were done every 5k and the front end was aligned. I'm going to have to get new tires pretty soon. I was thinking about getting the BFG KM2 tires in the same size, but after reading your posts and seeing the pics of the MTZ's, they look like tires that might be a good buy. I need a durable tire that is resistant to sharp rocks that are found on old mining roads out here in Arizona. Would these be good for a DD and weekend off-roading? Would my mpg take a big drop if I went from an AT to a mud tire? Thank you.

I did. Not what I found. Maybe everyone that your reading doesn't know how to drive? Cuz I'm doing a fair amount of offroading on michellin highway tires. No punctures.

I have a friend who has them, and he has yet to get a flat. There are a few posts on the other forum calling them "Duraflats." I have never gotten a flat tire out in the mountains with the BFG AT's. A three-ply sidewall is just added insurance against a gash from a sharp object. I wouldn't buy a tire that didn't have a three-ply sidewall.

Of pages and pages of people who puntured their sidewall on sticks, rocks, tree roots and even a thorn its all their own fault. How dare them people drive beside a thorn, what were they thinking.
But your right, greatest tire ever. Every problem is a bad driver or defective tire, gotcha I am sure they will fit right into your "offroading" style.

Best of luck, steer clear of the thorns.

Running on BfG t/a all terrains since 1997 when I saw them perform in about 18-24 inches of snow, on our highways around here. I was in a friends blazer and actually felt safe. Of coarse the highways were closed, so there wasn't any traffic. We took some doctors to work and picked his dad up. I've had them on two powerstroke fords and now after tomorrow I will have had them on two jeeps. lol but, I love them! I saw my first mtz's on a jeep a week ago, and I do really like them? idk, stick with what I got I guess.....I don't really wheel anymore? Bad back, I like to fish... LoL

You don't have to be an asshole about it. If I have a problem with them then you were right. I'll buy a new set of better tires. You have never run them. So all your info is second hand. Which gives your info at least 75% chance of being exaggerated. you don't like the duratracs, everyone on this forum knows this by now. But try not to insult my "offloading lifestyle" because you do not know me. Thanks for the wheel pics though. Since that's what this thread was about.
Have a nice evening.
