    Ok I relize the same kind of tire question gets asked once a week but, i really want to get the boards thoughts on this. I need new tires (33x12.50x15) and I think I want to try some Mickey Thompsons. I am looking at either the Baja belted HP or the Baja radial MTX. Any thoughts? Are these good tires? Worth the premium price?

    I've never owned Micks, but I consider them serious
    off road tires and not great for tread life or daily driving
    considering the price, If your going 33s I hope you have a
    lift, all depends on what you use the truck for!
    But, also take into consideration your diff gearing
    I have 31x10.5s BF ATs on my 84 Blazer and the gearing is ok if not low RPMs at highway speed! which maybe to low!

    If it ain't intimidating / It ain't a Chevy!

    I have some 35x14.5x15 Mickey Bajas and for off roading I love them. Daily driving, forget it, they wear very fast. I bought a set of 35x12.5 BFG AT's for daily driving. And another thing is if you live in an area that sees a lot of snow and ice, BUY SOMETHING ELSE. The Mick's were HORRIBLE on icy roads. You could just do what I do and swap them out with a different tire for everyday use. Hope this helps.
