Mickey Thompson MTZ

by Wes

Brand: Mickey Thompson MTZ 33"x12.5"x15"

Fitted to Dick Cepek DC-2 rims on a 1997 Jeep Wrangler (TJ)

This is my second set of MTZs and am very pleased with the performance on varying terrain - Mud, Rocks, even Sand dunes/Beach and Highway.

Have used many other brands/types of 4x4 tyres in the past but nothing has come close to the MTZs.

I usually run them about 30 psi on the road and 15 psi offroad but that can vary slightly depending on loads.

Some people don't like them humming but I love it.

'Mud Terrains' are the new 'All Terrains'.

Round Black Things!!
by: Joe Fury

G'day Wes

The Mickey Thompson MTZ tyres are fairly long lived and serviceable, more so on a reasonably light weight off road vehicle.

My personal experience with the MTZ's would rate in the "buyer be ware" bracket ~ my vehicle may have been a tad too much for the Mickey T's and consequently they suffered what might be premature failure and no one connected to the brand could offer a plausible reason for the internal de-lamination of the tyre carcass at a measly 37000k's

They had lots of theories but no answers, so the next set of "round black things" were another brand but still the aggressive mud terrain and yes these too fail due to being used for their intended purpose ~ hard core Off Road driving, but that's just sticks and stones.
