Upgrading from light truck to off road tyres was an easy choice. Choosing the right tyre for me wasn't much harder.
With my mates showcasing Mud Terrains I wanted to attain a tyre which would suit me for all terrains but be upstanding against the terrains faced when I venture out in convoy with my Muddy mates.
However, with safety in mind for my young family and the majority of my driving done on bitumen I wanted to find a medium in a tyre to suit my lifestyle.
I opted for the Mickey Thompson ATZ 4 Rib which advertises use for 60% Road & Sand, 40% Dirt & Mud.
A good looking tyre which may be the closest All Terrain to show Mud Terrain qualities. Obviously not as good as a Muddy in their element with thick sticky mud being a problem I find myself having to spin the tyres to clear the treads. Otherwise a great, Aggresive allrounder.
I would buy these tyres again.
