Mickey thompson MTZ vs. Dick Cepek Mud Country

Hey i need new tire but don't know what kind to get. So finally i narrowed it down to these two. FYI i want the tires to 1. perform well on deep snow and ice 2. Perform in mud and climbing 3. Look cool imput appreciated

mud tires are not made for snow. If you want something that does good in snow an AT will do better. but mud tires are great for mud and climbing. So which is more important to you. Snow or mud.

Yea mud terrain tires do very poorly in both snow and rain, but they look so much cooler

hmmm good point. so would mud tires really suck in snow, like worse than highway terrain tires?

MTZs, they have got me up everything i have wanted to go up... have you considered the Toyo MTs? little pricey, but i have heard nothing but good reviews about them.

we dont have snow down here so i cant vouch for that, but im on the Krawltex Forum, lots of hardcore jeep guys.. they all love the Toyo, nice road manners, and they seem to walk up any rocks that they want to go up lol

i wish i had got them

in the last off road mag I read they said that Toyou M/T's actually did a good job in snow. Cut through it enough to get grip but didn't rip it up so much as to get stuck.

Toyo is a great tire, pricey, but nice. I love my Toyo A/T's. They destroy snow and have excellent road manners, they have excellent wet traction too. Nitto (which i found out is owned By Toyo) isn't bad either.

well MTZ's, Mud Country's and Toyo's aren't normal mud tires! they are siped pretty heavily and they do pretty good on every surface i've had them on....

i can vouch for snow driving and they did absolutely amazing! i'll never get another tire myself....

looks like John Griggs has started another trend! lol.. IIRC he was one of the first ones to buy MTZ's and post a review thread on them! that sold me then i bought mine and ive been on a soapbox over those tires since then!

If you're sold on them, why are you getting another tire?
