Which tire would u choose?

I am going to purchase a new set of rims for my jeep, so I was wondering which tire would be the better tire to get? The bf Goodrich my km2 or the Mickey Thompson ttc claw. I was leaning towards the km2, but just wondered what would be better.
Right now I have 15x10 rims with a set of 35x12.50 on them both rims n tires are wore out. So I was going to put a set of 15x8 with 35's on it this time. Thanks for all the input in advance.

Depends on what you plan on using it for.

I understand the MT ttc claws wear fast so wouldn't be a good choice for a DD.

You can't go wrong with this tire!

Good choice. Generally regarded as an excellent tire that is priced well.

FWIW, back in the day, my "drive back and forth to work" was 5 minutes so Interco Iroks were no problem on my DD. now, my round trip is 92 miles so that wouldn't work for me.

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.
