    So it is about that time for me to get some new tires just not sure what ones to get, not like there are a hundred choices out there or nothing. I have kinda decided on two they are the Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ's or the Goodyear Duratrac's. I have thought about keeping what I have just going down to a 285/75/16. I have the Mickey Thompson MTZ's now. Help me out guys and thanks.

    Yea I've been leaning towards them but the ATZ's have a good looking tread also. I'll get some pics for you guys once I'm home.

    i ran the baja atz's on my jeep and i will tell you this. they come with alot more tread than anything else out there. mickey thompson really gives you a lot of rubber for your money. i liked them in pretty much all conditions on the road, but i didn't wheel them in rocks or mud, etc. also, i like the aggressive look of the mtz's better than both the atz and the duratracs. duratracs have a pretty good reputation on this board, alot of people review them favorably.

    good luck with your choice.

    Yea the reason I narrowed it down to them is because the duratracs have gotten great reviews and my Mickey Thompsons I have now have been great.
