Votes on tire choices

Gang

Looking to upgrade my 32" BF Goodrich All terrain TAs with a set of 35" tires for 15" rims (or maybe get a combo set with 17" rims) for my 1990 Wrangler.

I've narrowed my choices to the following and was looking to see what ya'll thought. Open to other suggestions outside these choices.

1.) Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ LT Radial
2.) Mickey Thompson Baja Claw TTC
3.) Pro Comp Xtreme M/T2
4.) INTERCO Super Swamper TSL Tire
5.)INTERCO Super Swamper LTB Tire
6.) Dick Cepek Crusher Radial Tire
7.)Dick CepekŪ Mud Country Tire
8.) Hankook Dynapro MT Tire
9.) Maxxis Trepador Radial Tire

After exhaustive searching myself, I narrowed it down to the MT MTZ, Dick Cepek Mud Country, or the Hankook Dynapro MT. I'm leaning heavily towards the MTZ myself.

Some of your choices, like the LTB or TSL won't ride nearly as smooth as most of the others you listed, and the LTB is a bias ply, the TSL can be had either radial or bias ply. Strong tires for sure, but I wouldn't want them on a daily driver.

That list has a good bit of diversity. It's odd to see TSLs, LTBs in competition with some of the radials listed. You also don't mention the intended use.

If its a trail only rig I would likely go with the LTBs, though if considering that tire I would actually choose the Irok over those. Great on the trail but horrible on road. Best off road tire I have ever run. You might consider Pitbulls as well.

As for the radials, of those listed I only have experience with the Pro Comp and have been very pleased with them. Haven't tried the PC XMT2 though and since the original has treated me well I wouldn't think the 2s would be worse. I like the PC XMTs better than the Toyo MTs.

What about the SS M16?

Good luck and post pics when she gets her new shoes.

Of those, I'd probably go with MTZ or Hankook MT; but if you're considering Interco, how about Trxus MT? The Trxus MT is a radial and is (somewhat) more street friendly than those other Interco tires you mentioned. IMO.

On the aggressive, but still streetable, end of the spectrum; have you considered Trxus MT?

On the less aggressive, but still off roadable, end of the spectrum; have you considered Duratrac?

The MTZ hands down for an all around DD/weekend warrior tire. Will hold its own in mud against SS tires, Just as good on the rocks as mt/r's, And roll smooth down the highway after. Minimal weight to balance and wear good as well, My last set I had netted 46k. Good luck either way

I just got the Hankook MT on my Rubicon. They handle great on road and are quiet, just a low hum at 65. They were cheaper than the Bfg which were stock. Haven't tried them off road yet but they got great reviews. Very satisfied so far. Happy tire hunting !
