And $900.....Mickey Thompson MTZ 35x15 15's

After choosing the bfg km2 and learning that BFG hasnt even started making that size yet of that tire... so those were my second choice. Should be on the within a week 1/2.

somewhere in the 16-18k range i'm guessing after my attempted conversion of the oversized tires.

the fronts are done because i left the alignment messed up for too long, the rears are at about half or a little under but they were subjected to almost constant abuse if i had the gas to go abuse them.


and yea, the discount tire here had the KM2 in a 35x1250-15 listed for just under the cost of MTZs. did you buy them from NTW while they were 202 a piece or after they went up to 225?

i may have to buy them through NTW then if the deal for free shipping will work in 2 tires.

its 225 at 4wp, and 245 at Discount in town. i'm waiting to hear from a buddy who works at discount though.

ive seen a ton of the bigger mtz's. south FL basically turned into a mini socal. theres lifted fullsizes at every corner and mtz is a popular tire but def not as much as the TOYO. personally i think its a great tire but they are mucho dinero and imo wayy to heavy for our truck.. at least my 3.slow

MTZs are a great tire man. I've had mine for about 5k now and they don't show any wear at all. They ride much smoother than my old maxxis bighorns too.

Yea, lifted full sizes are a dime a dozen here. Not to say I don't love them though.

Toyo's are on everyones trucks. I haven't seen anyone run the km2 yet...local.

How is a tire too heavy for your truck? I have the same truck as you and I have 4.88 gears and I could run 37's...easy.

I've had the toyo mt's for about a year and a half now (about 14K miles) and they still have a ways to go. Everyone says they are overrated but they work fine for what I do.

I LOVE the toyo mt, but they are overpriced IMO.

mlw20lu, if you have 3.73's, I would changed them out BEFORE you put tires on, I had some tranny problems with 4.10s and 35's...blew a servo for no odd reason

the Toyos are about as popular as the MTRs are around here for rock crawling.. then they get dwarfed by TSLs.


I've heard the toyos suck in mud, but i can't personally vouch for them.

the toyos should suck in mud, small tread void and not very much going for them...just like every other mud terrain, no comparison to a real mud tire or vtread

MTZs 3 ply? My biggest complaint about my Nittos is they are 10 ply in my size! Blah, I want a 3-4 ply.
