    Ok I know I already talked about this one, but I want to start my own thread about it.

    Anyone have them, or have a friend who has them?

    How do they do on ther road?
    Post up any opinions on them.

    I have them on my blazer and i love them !
    they are pretty smooth and quiet on the highway even at speeds of 75mph.
    they feel good driving in the rain. and even though i havent wheeled much,
    they get great traction in muddy wet grass.

    thumbs up so far in my book.

    I have also been looking at those from my DD. I would like to know how the compare noise wise to the Xterrain. My Xterrains 305/70/16 are louder than my 38" TSL SX.

    And here's a close up picture of the old tires:

    (Don't ask :doah:)


    Explaination:

    The Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ looks pretty sweet! I love them. Even though I have only a few miles on them, I can tell you I love them. They hardly have any road noise. I can barely hear it over the exhaust, I don't mind though. They are smooth and have no crazy vibes or anything. Also they don't really feel much heavier than the BFG A/Ts I had on there for a while. I haven't had time to take them off road yet, but I will soon enough.

    Based on my first impressions, I highly recomend this tire to anyone looking for a mud terrain type tire.

    Also what do you guys think of the wheels?
    (You might realize why I want to keep them and not go 8-lug)

    Ya this winter has really sucked... :mad:
    I was hoping t odo some snow wheeling but its kinda hard to do without snow! :crazy:


    Anyway, check out my fender clearance:
    The Front:
    MTZ 8.jpg

    The Rear:
    MTZ 10.jpg

    I think I have plenty of clearance in the rear, but I might rub in the front at full flex.
