Price: $270.00
Pros: Great road manners.
Cons: None encountered yet.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I just got these, and I haven't taken them off road yet, but so far they're doing great on the road. I've used them in wet, dry and snowy conditions, and they handled all of it with ease. Can't wait to get them dirty, and I'll be sure to update this as soon as I do.

EDIT: Put these on in October '11, and now I have about 10,000 miles on them. I can say now they are fantastic offroad. However they aren't wearing too well for me. Granted this is a daily driver, but I'm probably worn down about a third or more of the tread. At this rate I'll be lucky to make it two years with these.

Pros: Very quiet, smooth ride
Cons: Only available with mall cruising white outlined letters (315/70R x 17)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Back in June this year I had planned on putting new rubber on my TJ; after a few household emergencies and putting new tires on "Mama's" truck, I finally saved up enough cash to get my new tires. In November I ordered Goodyear MTRs (35x12.5x17) and waited and waited... They were put on back order with a 1 to 6 month wait. Really. So, I bought another set of MTZs and saved money on a spare.

Wow! After one mile I remembered why I like these tires so much; quiet, smooth ride- just like new running shoes. I all ready know they perform well off road.

Comments: Just got a set of these for my yj and I love them! Very little to no road noise. I have only had them off road once, and they rarely slipped and mud easily cleaned out of the tread.

Price: $165.00
Pros: priced competitively, lugs are siped for longer road wear, not as loud as other mud tires and have lasted +50K miles
Cons: rubber doesn't last forever
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I've had several sets of all terrain tire but this is the first mud tire I've had on the Jeep.

I like the tread pattern and it works well to evacuate water/snow from the road. Good amount of tread on the sidewall of the tire.

siping on the lugs helps to reduce heat in the rubber which adds life to the tire.

Not as much road noise as other off road tires.

I've never rotated the tires and they have worn evenly and given +50K miles of life.

Time to replace them now and I'm about to go from the 265 to 285x75x16

will buy again.

Price: $208.00
Pros: Performed great on Colorado's rocky trails.
Cons: Outlined White Letters (can be turned inward), D rating of 315/70R17
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I've been running 315/70R/17 MTZs on my 2005 TJ Rubicon since SEP 2006. The vehicle weighs approx 4,500lbs without people or equipment. My TJ is a daily driver that is very rarley driven on the Interstate or at speeds over 65mph. It was built for rock crawling and local driving. At 36K there is 8/32 of tread left on these tires. The outside lugs have minor chunking. One tire received a dog-eared gouge near the bead that also left a deep scar on the rim- no leakage. Initially the tires were quiet for a mud terrain; at 20k they started to whine; at 30k-plus they sound like an 18-wheeler going down the HWY. Off-road, without bead locks, I run these tires at 11psi and have never lost a bead. On road I run 27-28psi. Above 29psi the vehicle bounces, though roll resistance is improved. I would buy these tires again. They have worked very well in the rocks. However, in the very near future, I will be replacing them with a "C" rated 35x12.50x17. I plan to do this for a personal experiment to see if I can determine any performance differences between a "C" and a "D" rated tire.

Comments: I have LT 315/75R16 (approx. 35x12.50R16) tires installed. These tires are great and have worn very well. For a M/T tire, they are very quiet on the highway, and a great performer off road. FYI price is for tire mounted and balanced, etc.

Price: $900.00
Pros: Aggresive tread, tough sidewall and good tread wear
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought 315 75/R16 to replace the MTR's that came on my 06 Jeep Rubicon. These are great in the rocks, snow and sand. I've had no time with them in mud. In the snow they have excellent traction and clean out very well.
Last May we deflated to 12 lbs and floated on top of about 5 feet of hard packed snow. They always provided traction.

I've got 10K miles on them and they show very little wear. For a Jeep these are an excellent all around choice. Good on wet or snowy pavement and can play on the rocks.

Price: $350.00
Pros: Great off-road, lots of traction, durable, great looking
Cons: Heavy, harder on gas (to be expected)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I mounted these Mickey Thompson 33"x12.5"x18" tires on 18"x9" wide wheels, no problem at all for side clearance on my 2010 JK. One thing for sure is that you need at least a 2" lift to hit the trails or else you won't get the flex you need without some rubbing. Night & day compared to stock Wrangler tires. They have a 10 ply rating so I'm not afraid to take them over sharp rocks.
I would say that the only thing I don't like is that they ride as if I didn't have any suspension at all on the Jeep, very hard ride, but that's probably because I got them inflated at 35 lbs. so that my sensors don't tell me I have a low tire, the ride should be better at lower inflation.
The weight and width also plays with the following:
1. Your driving skills, keep both hands on the steering wheel, these things will pull you where they want to go (to be expected).
2. Be ready to stop at the pump more often, it takes more power to get the Jeep moving due to their weight and extra traction.
3. Breaking is different now, have to be a bit more careful not to rear-end anyone, not because they slip, but because they added all this extra weight to the Jeep (at least that's my perception).
I totally like the way they look and how they operate off-road, even if they are not the best and most comfortable tires for pavement, what they give me off-road is worth it.

Comments: these tires are great they do have more road noise than most brand new mud terrains but its not overbearing they clean great even at low speed in the mud and push right on through the soft sand. they seem to wear just fine and i will probably buy another set when these wear out in 2 years. i also have posted a video on here and youtube showing them in the mud. enjoy

Comments: Just got these put on my XJ today, so far I cant believe how quiet they are. After taking off my Pro Comp MT's it is much quieter rollin down the road. Over the last 2 days I have put on a couple hundred miles of highway driving. Some rain some dry, and I am really happy so far. The hold the road well even when wet. Have yet to go off road with them

Comments: bought these tires in september, and love them. they are more quiet than the at's that were on my rig when I got it. I opted for the 33 12.5 15 and they seem to be a little heavy, but they perform excelent. with all the snow that has fallen in Fargo, I have only had to run 4wd in deeper snow.....3+ inches. I recently had to help out a full size blazer, and he is running 35. I went right out to him without any problems. I would definately buy these again.
