Cranked my T-bars 2.5 inches and put on shock extenders, went with 305/55/20's Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ's, and tires don't rub at all. Put on 2400 km's over the weekend and the tires ride nice, you can hear em, but aren't that bad. Tell me what you guys think.

I run the ATZs, not as aggressive looking, but seem pretty good. I only run the little guys (275/70/18). I notched the fenders to clear, but thats due to the 1mm offset on my rims.

I hate to dampen the mood, but why did the tire guy hamer steel (lead with steel clamp) weights on your aluminum rims? They make sticky back weights for a reason. I would go back and bitch them out....seriously bitch them out!

From past experience with a dipshit hammering those onto my aluminum wheels; they will eventually come off at high speed because they do not clamp correctly to the aluminum. Just FYI. Then you can have them balanced correctly with stick-ons and have to live with the scratches and dents in your aluminum rims from where the idiot hammered on the weights. I didn't mean to bring you down, just giving you a heads up for next time.

I love the mtz and atz. I'm looking at some 35's. I had the sticky weights on my last truck and found them in my drive way when I left the house.

I like them. They are fairly quiet. Ride well. Are wearing even. I have a fairly heavy foot, and I should get about 60-80,000km out of them (37-50,000mi). Which may not seem great to many on here. But I roll down the road at 10,000lbs everyday. And sometimes up to 12,000lbs, (which is slightly over my GVW). So there is a fair amount of extra heat and wear.

I have gotten 35-40000km out of KM2s, and Goodyear MTRs. The only tire I had that lasted a long time was the Nitto HD Grappler (same as toyo M55, just bigger). But they were very noisy, and had terrible lateral traction in the mud. Had to spin and dig to go where I was pointed.
