Ok, I'm finishing up my LA upgrade and swapping in my locked D44/9" with 4.88's. I currently have 33" MTZ's that I bought when the '92 XJ was still my DD. It is now primarily a trail rig, but will see some street time to/from the trails. I'm debating whether I should go with 35 or 37" tires. I love my MTZ's, but I'm also considering going with something more aggressive. A tire that is great in the mud and on rocks, but isn't completely horrible on the road.
I can read, and have been, so I'm not looking for comments lime. . . "I've head that. . . " or "JP magazine did an article on. . . ". I'm more looking for input from personal experience.
MTR's? Don't think they would be much different than my MTZ's, which again. . . I absolutely love. So, anything comperable to the MTZ's are not in the running here. It is either stick with MTZ's or go with something more aggressive. I just don't have experience with anything else, so I'm asking for your opinions from experience after running whatever tires at least a few times on thbe trails and the road.
Look into Maxxis. I haven't run them, but I know they are good tires. Same for Pit Bulls.
Yeah, I read about both of these yesterday. I think for the price and durability I like the Maxxis Creepy Crawlers. They sound tough as ****, look badass, and aren't as expensive as some of their competitors. Doesn't sound like you can go wrong with PBR's when it comes to performance, but they are a bit pricey and it sounds like they will wear quicker. I don't have enough money to be picking up new tires every year or even every other year. I don't plan on wheeling TOO often every year with my busy schedule, so I'm hoping to squeeze like 5 years out of this set of tires.
