    Hello guys,

    I'm new in this forum and new to my Tacoma!
    Im going to start some mods and the first one will be the tires, Im thinking about the Mickey Thompson MTZ they look great and they seem to be very reliable. However, Im not sure if there are better ones in the market, I've been searching for pricess and quality this Thompsons seem a good choice.

    Let me know guys. Thanks for your time![​IMG]

    Haven't heard much about these tires as well. However, I came across this picture some time ago because it was something I was considering too! Love the way it looks. Might still consider it when my BFG's need replacing. Good luck on your hunt.

    Personally, I like the Firestone M/T's but I don't have any experience with them. I love the way they look on the trucks I've seen and it's not just because I personally have Firestone's. I also like the Cooper Discoverer STT's. A few folks around here and TN have them.

    I actually really like the pro comp xtreme m/t. They do great offroad. Also there is little tire noise at highway speeds. I am not sure about tread wear, b/c i have not had them long enough. I have about a 200 miles and have already been mudding about 4 times so.
