    Anyone running either the Mickey Thompson Baja Claws or Baja MTZ Radials? If so, what is the noise level like? Thanks.

    I am running the mtzS and they are much better than the km2 a bud had.

    Want to buy some ATZs? They are very loud for an AT tire. I have heard the MTZs are quiet for a mud tire but everyone has their own opinion. The post above says they are quieter than the KM2s... on another forum they will tell you the opposite. I bought the ATZs because someone on this board told me they were quieter than the BFG ATs... NOT... they are WAY louder. I learned the hard way.

    wat?
    i'm running the claws and they're not that bad. loud, but not terrible. the rumble strip effect when coming to a stop is more annoying that the noise.

    Thanks....any recommendations for a quiet mud terrain? Cooper Discoverer STT LT? Nitto Mud Grapplers? I dont mind a little noise, but I also dont want to have a headache everytime I start the truck up.

    STTs and mud graps are both loud. MTZs should be more quiet. the original KMs werent bad...not sure of the KM2s though.
