Just wanted to post a review of these tires. Bought a full set this February and I've gotta say I'm impressed! I picked them up locally for 165.00 a pop, they look wonderful, best looking MT I've seen in person! The best features are the quality, they are siped, and I have driven on the interstate in the pouring rain for long distances and never once did it get squirrely! Even better than that, I have put about 5000 miles on them, and they are super super quiet! People can pass me with AT's and they are twice, if not three times as loud as my Cooper MT's. They peform great at about 7psi offroad, good strong sidewall, but lots of flex and tons of grab. I have yet to lock my rig yet, and I can get places that others can't just because of these shoes.
Just I'm me if you have any further questions.

Just wanted to give you all a heads up on these tires I got last weekend. Set of four Dayton Baja MT's from big o. It cost 818.00 out the door with the warranty. I have seen some guys back east saying they got them for 526.00 but I saw the purchase invoice on the tire and it was 166.00 per tire for my 305/70/16.
Surprisingly they ride better than my Goodyear MT/r's I had. Smooth and really quiet. Not the kind of quiet for a MT but actually quiet. Looks good has a real aggressive look.
I don't know how they stack up in wet weather since there not siped and how they compare offroad to my Goodyears I had but so far in the blazing heat in Calli there really nice.

Baja MTZ....quite a deceptive tire to get info on...I've been searching for days and have only found them in a handful of threads....Someone please give us the skinny!!........some pics would be great too!!
I got the MTZ and love them. They do very well in just about everything I have put them through. We have no rock gardens around here so i cant speak for that area of them. But in every other condition they outperform the MTR's at EVERYTHING. Rain, Mud, Dirt, wet roads, dry roads, sand and rivers . They do this and are still quieter on the highway then my mtr's were or my old BFG MT's.

How long have you had them? Miles driven on them (i know not many since your one of the few to have them)?
Right now I've got the TSL/SX 32x11.50-15 and am about to order the TrXus 35x12.50-15. I've read nothing but good revues on them and they look great with real good sipping, so they should have very good traction.
I just love to go where no man has gone before.
Rock climbing, in marshes, atv trails, mud, tundra etc.
I've been running Firestone Destinations MT's for going on 3 yrs. and have been very impressed with them both on the trail and on wet and snowy roads and with reg. rotation I'm getting even tire wear.
I am somewhat curious why so few people have given these tires a try. The Dayton Timberlines, which is manufactured by Firestone and are quite similar, seems to be a highly thought of and recomended by all that run them.
Anyone care to shed some light on why the Destination's don't seem to find their way on to more Jeeps?
