We’ve been pleased with the 37x12.50R17 Mickey Thompson Radial MTZ tires. They provide a decent highway ride for an aggressive mud tire and hook up well in the dirt. When aired down a bit they stick well in the snow and have good rock traction, as well. The rubber tends to chunk out a bit in the gnarly rocks, but that’s when we’re grinding them pretty hard on sharp edges. We like the look and performance of the Mickey Thompson Classic II wheels that were beadlocked by the folks at OMF and topped with a set of their scalloped rings. One thing of note though is that the location of the valve stem on the beadlocked Classic II makes it a bit harder to get an air chuck on, but the stems are well protected. Next time we swap tires, we might consider drilling holes for a more accessible valve stem location.
