I live in NW OKC near Lake Hefner. I have always used Christian Brothers on Hefner Road near the Rockwell intersection. They've been great with my family's cars, but I have not taken my Jeep to them before. I believe they have a few different locations.

Can anyone in the Tulsa Metro point me in the direction of a good shop to buy tires from. I'm looking for something good in the 33" size and I haven't bought up here before.

I've been rollin' on Mickey Thompson Baja MTZs and liked them. They held up pretty good and only cupped bad on two cause I didn't rotate them early enough. I'll run a decent AT as long as it does ok in mud and stuff. The only offroad tire I've had was the above Baja...so any advice or experience would be helpful!

Go to 4WP. They will price match treadepot.con. I'm getting 4 35x12.5r15 Goodyear MT/Rs that way for 183 a pop + tax & mount and balance, whereas everywhere else charges 225-230 per tire not including tax or shipping + mount and balance.

Thanks Kenny. I know the website and is that the shop outa Moore? I've gotten parts there before but not tires. Have you had the MT/Rs before? I've heard good things and they're a big more AT than the Mud centered Baja's I'm running now. Might be a bit more friendly on a DD.

My best understanding is that the MT/R is a great DD tire while also being one of the best tires you can get for rocks. I hear the lugs do well in mud and they clean out nicely too, though I've never owned them myself. Few friends have them and love them, and the thick sidewalls are exactly why I'm grabbing them up. The jagged rocks up in Colorado will require some beef on the sidewalls. I believe MT/R stands for Maximum Traction/Radial, if I'm not mistaken, though I could be wrong, but to answer your question in short, it's basically a hybrid between an AT and MT that works very good on slippery conditions and rocks and doubles as a stable, fairly quiet (considering other MTs) tire on the road. Hope this helps some.

Thanks bud!! Funny the majority of my real "wheelin" is in the mountains of Colorado too!! Let me know what you think when you get yours mounted. I have to wait at least one more pay period so I can pay cash for them. I'll be sticking with 33s again till I can afford to do axel upgrades after college.
