I can't really tell you since I live in FL and I don't have them, but from what I've read about them they're a great all around tire. I was looking at getting some when I was planning on building a weekend Jeep. Unfortunately I had to scrap it b/c I already have too many projects :(

My roomate had them on his dakota back when it was lifted and they worked great. With a LSD he barely ever switched into 4wd. His were also 33s.

If you see BlazedB2 on here, ask him. He runs 33" MT Baha Claws on his wonderful little Bronco II. They did real well in mud, I can tell you that. He was in the videos from Wharton I posted.

whaaaaat???? mickey thompson baja claws are known to do very well in mud. and some guys even like them on the rocks mounted backwards. if anything Id say that they would perform BETTER in the mud than in the snow.

The only thing you would have to worry about is ice, but if youre a careful snow driver than i say they will more than suffice...

I've heard the "no good in mud" thing also, Gil. In fact, I was considering them for my truck at one point and did some "internet research" and found people who said they weren't that good in mud -- but compared to what? Boggers? I don't know.

I do know I watched Jay (BlazedB2) spin those things and they pulled him through mud when he had some of the lowest ground clearance among those who went through. He was actually dragging his belly in places and it didn't matter.

So, from what I've seen, they kick some muddy butt -- at least on Jay's truck.

I am just going on what i have read just like john sayed up there ^^ a few mags i have read sayed they arnt as nice in mud in cleaning. I have never had them to tell. I knew one person with them and asked him about snow and he sayed they rocked in sand also. but i never asked about mud. so I am just going on what I read.

my dad had them on his b2 and at first he loved them but after awhile different story. wet snow they work ok, anything with ice they are useless, also they suck in the rain. If it was me i would get them siped and rotate them at least every 3000 miles and you should be ok. by the way they will be loud even with rotating them and if you don't they will get even louder.
