Maxxis bighorn vs MTZ

Which would be a better mud/rock tire but also not horrible on the street?

I just bought a second set of MTZ's. They hook up everywhere, sidewall is bombproof and have great road manners. If you google (mud tire shoot out) the MTZ actually came in third over a lot of other tires.

I dont have personal experience with MTZ's... But Ive had Bighorns on 2 rigs and really like them. I have 31's on my wrangler and had 35's on my old Cummins and they do well in mud, sand, snow and on rock. They also seem to have a nice strong bead. Ive thought a few times I was gonna lose a bead while aired down and they havent popped off. Just my experience...

Honestly it comes down to personal choice...I'm sure they'll both perform well. All I do is Rock! Mud is fun for 10min...lol

If road noise is a concern, go with the MTZs. My son has Bighorns on his TJ. They are excellent off road but loud on the road. I can hear him coming from 100 yards away.
