Another tire thread

Who's vehicles ride on Mickey Thomspon Baja Radial MTZ tires?

I'm looking at the Kumho Road Venture MT 834 tires but I just became aware of these MT MTZ's and noticed that they are siped.

How do you like them compared to other MT tires like BFG's and Goodyear's or even the Kumho's? I know tirerack rate's the Kumho's better then both the BFG's and the Goodyears and also have longer tread life but I'd rather have a siped tire. Just curious...trying to gather up some info before I go ahead and FINALLY decide on a set of tires.

No one else?

Are these tires that new? I thought they've been out for almost a year or so?

Maybe I should have made the title of this thread with the name of the tire.

They have been out for less than a year, a few months if i remember right.

so there arent many people running them.

you could be the guinea pig!

all I have read is that they sit nice and square,and have a somewhat hard tread compound.

They look badass too

Yea thats what I figured. I just didn't want a tire that was going to wear faster then any other Mud tire. Obviously I'm going to be running these year round and probably only see the trails a few times a year so I'm also looking for a good and long last on road tire and I know rotation is a must...already do that with the stock tires.
