Right now, the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar seems to be a good option but it's still new. Haven't heard anything negative about them yet unless you consider the whining about some sizes coming with with outline lettering on the sidewall

I'll be trying a set out in about a week and a half.

Anybody run the super swamper M16?

I think I’m going to slide into a set of these soon, I have heard they get half way decent mileage (comparable to MTZ's... hopefully). I have also heard that they are magical in mud, not sure on rocks yet... if anything I will keep y'all updated once I get some.

To me the lugs appear to be too large with not enough siping. Meaning in deep rain you will be more likely to hydroplane due to lack of water absorbtion by the tread ... and in packed snow they are probably miserable due to lack of biting edges created by siping. The lug spacing also does not appear to be wide enough to make them a formidable player offroad either. To me, these M16's just seem like another failed attempt by Interco to break into the "street tire" market, but I suspect their overall performance to be closer to the Thornturd and less well-rounded as their Trxus MT design. That is my opinion based on what I know about tire design.

I agree. I'll add that the treads are very long side to side without any sipes or grooves running in the circumferential direction.

i.e. - in addition to what Hoff said, I think they'd have a nasty lateral side slipping.

i.e. - you're rearend would fishtail a lot on winter roads, and your front would understeer, IMO.

With enough work with a groover and siper they could be made into a decent hybrid tire, but why bother? You can buy better tires that are lready to use, without needing siping and grooving mods. IMO.

I am a new jeeper and had a hard time choosing my first tire since I am so new to this. I heard some pretty positive reviews on the mickey Thompson Baja claw radial, and I live in Canada so unless I wanted bfg mall terrains I had to order in whatever I chose. When I went into my local performance shop to order in my new wheels and tires I found out there was a large mail in rebate on all mickey Thompson wheels and tires, so I ordered the baja claw radial 33x12.5-15's and the new 15x10 SideBiters, however the offset did not match my ZJ so I had to add 1.75" spacers all around. I will have approx. 2" of backspacing in the end, on a 10" wide rim, should look pretty beefy. Anyways this was all 6 weeks ago and my tires still haven't been shipped in so if you know anyone that works for mickey Thompson please tell them there is a very inpatient young boy in Canada relying on these for his dd. As soon as they come I will be sure to review them here, since I don't see to many baja claws here in Canada. Sorry if this is the wrong section to post this in, it's my first JF post
