Help me decide on which new tires!!!

It's about that time to get new tires, actually it's waaay past that time... Im getting new 33x12.50's and I'm down to either MTR's or MTZ's, both seem like great tires.. So help me choose which one and why?!!
thanks!

I think you should get the MTZ, but I like the MTR, I know they get loud though...

I want that 37" MTR, I need bigger tires to even out the gear ratio crap...we need to fix your window!

Im starting to lean more towards the MTZ's now... I definitely dont want to deal with MTR's giving me problems if thats what they are known to do, i need something reliable, ive had enough tire problems for a lifetime!

dude we got a lot of fixing to do! first comes tires, then i want to take apart my leafs and sand paint and grease the **** out of them, then new passenger CV, both hubs, possibly ball joints/tie rods i gotta check them, alignment, window, and brake pads front and rear! a bit overwhelming, but all in a days work in the parking spot!

I vote MTZ over MTR just because the MTZ has siping in the tread to make it better for on road manners.

Could always get Toyo's. They're a good tire. Just don't pay full price for them. I know I didn't lol

Shane found mine at a junkyard truck that had just come in. Had maybe 1000 miles on the tires. Bought em for $500, mounted and balanced for $100, sold my hankook's with about 50-55% tread for $450. I ended up paying $37.50 for almost brand new toyo's... 35's for a 16in rim. SCORE!!!!!!!!!! Thanks SHANE! HAHA

I think that's a good deal for that wheel/tire package that guy's selling. I'd jump on that man. Good lookin wheel too!
