Mickey Thompson MTZ's do not come in that size They only come in 12.50 or 15.50.

I think Toyo and Pitbull rocker are the only ones that come in a 33x13.50x15.

Those are nice tires.

The wider the tire the better in most terrain right? Is it better to have wider or thin in
-snow
-mud
-sand
-off road trails

in sand its always better to have wider...

other wise it depends on what is under the surface... sometimes its better to have thin tires to dig down in sloppy mud till you hit a hard base, but when theres no hard base the wider the better

Why are you so set on a 13.50, what is wrong with a 12.50. There is very little difference in the two, except the 13.50 will be more expensive b/c noone makes that size.

12.50's would look better imo.. you should save up for a bigger lift and get some 35's man.

A tire that is thinner with tighter lugs is better in the snow... Mud it depends and sand for sure you need wide tires...

i always thought thinner tires are better for mud.. like you see at truck pulls or whatever, tractor pulls.

Only if theres something solid underneith the sloppy stuff. if its all just slop you want to try and stay above the nasty stuff that sucks you in

another bad thing about a 13.5 tire is i don't believe they are made in a radial tire...i think they are bias ply tires....

Chris so when say a "tighter" lug pattern are you saying a radial or an A/T.
