Re: help me decide on tires!

I'm not a fan of Mickey Thompsons at all, They look like they should be on an old jacked up Bronco.

Stick to BFG, Goodyear, or Toyo IMO

But if you're set on one of those two, Get the Baja MTZ.

Re: help me decide on tires!

Agree with moneen: BUT, if i were to choose: I'd prob go MTZ. Look like better wear, less noise and longer lasting (let me head off any "that's what she said" jokes ) - that's without knowing too much about each tire

Re: help me decide on tires!

Baja Claws of you do some serious off roading. MTZs if you want a quiet, longer wearing tread

Re: help me decide on tires!

BAJA CLAWS are notorious for wearing down real quickly... they are bad ass if you are ONLY using them in the dirt/mud/snow ... if not STAY AWAY!!!


i've said it before and ill say it again ...

MT/R's all the way, The Claws are way to aggressive, they feel like swampers.
