I run Mickey Thompson MTZ's - wear great, deal with all East Coast terrain very well - mud, forest, rock, sand, wet, snow etc. They have a very tough 3 ply sidewall. Unlike the Baja Claws, they are not directional.
They do better than KM2's for the terrain we see in our area. They are not good on packed snow or ice - no MT tire tends to be, but don't feel sketchy on wet roads at all.
I'm rolling 33's on my XJ now, and may buy them again later this year when I bump up to 35's.
