05RangerXLT had MTZs on his truck, but he sold it like 2 weeks after he got them. They looked badass and rode really well. I'm pretty sure n3elz runs them as well and so does another member with a white 99 runs them as well but I can't remember his name for the life of me. He'll hop in here sometime.

I used the MTZ's on the highway and for offroading. To save wear on them, I use BFG AT's I got cheap (35" for all of the ones I'm talking about) for the street.

But I didn't take them off because of how they were on the street. They were great.

The only problem is that like all mud tires they wear quicker due to somewhat softer rubber and the high void.

Overall, I'd recommend the MT tires in general. They're made by Cooper and have a very high quality carcass, regardless of tread design.

you had part of my name
lucky me actually remembers a few girls names from last night.


I would say MTZs even though you seem to have your heart set on the MTX's..

the ones on the front that used to be on the back look almost new, the ones that were on the front w/ the alignment out are pretty bad though. but that'll happen with almost any tire out of alignment

i want to say they have like 8000 or so on them.

I am running the MTX's and they are a great all terrain. They have performed better then the BFG A/t's everyone seems to love on this site. I will tell you this if you want a A/T tire you can not go wrong with them.
