    I am currently running Mickey Thompson MTZ's in a 265x70R-17. I love the performance but the road noise gets old. Anyone running the Dick Cepek Radial F-C II or the Mickey Thompson ATZ radials. How do you like them and how is the performance?

    Thanks for your time......

    I guess I should have clarified what I was looking for..... How is the road noise on either of these tires. I did some research and found the ATZ's are still loud. Looking for feedback on the Dick Cepek Radials.

    Help!!!

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    Ive heard good of both tires, but both are still a little noisy it seems. I'd look into the duratracs if you want agressive but good street manners.

    I was looking at the ATZs until the road noise was reported as loud... Not sure about the Radial ATZs. I have not heard anyting on the Dick Cepeks, but would like to hear more. I am also looking at the Pirelli Scorpion as a possible tire. Most my 4 wheeling is in the desert and the beach, and aggressive mud terrains are no good in the sand (I had the Cooper STTs on my '05), plus are very loud on the highway. The Rugged Trails actually work good for my driving but may not make it past 30,000 miles.... They haven't on my past two Tacos.
