New Tires

Well it is about that time to get some new tires. I have been looking at the Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ. I had the MTZ's and they turned out to be an extremely good tire, so i figure the ATZ's would be even better. Has anyone had any of the ATZ's or would know how good they are and how long they will last??? I am looking at 35 x 13.50 x 20. Thanks for any info and help.

I had the ATZ's for a little while on a Dodge...hated them. Switched to MTZ's and had good luck with them.

The ATZ's cupped and got horrible traction on wet pavement.

Thanks for the info, any suggestions for a good kind of aggressive all-terrain or a not so aggressive mudgrip tire? looking for something that will last.

I have the Toyo's on rite now and had them before on another truck and i just don't like them. Can't ever get enough miles out of them. I will look into the other two. What kind of miles could i expect out of the Terra Graplers??
