18. We chose to run a set of 315/75R16 Mickey Thompson MTZ radial tires. We chose the MTZs because we really like this mud terrain's inherent ability to bite into surfaces that would leave other tires spinning. They have what Mickey Thompson calls "Power Ply sidewalls," which have a special angled third ply that gives high-performance handling, better puncture resistance, and improved towing capability. We'll appreciate the self-cleaning, high-void tread lugs, which we expect will give us great traction in mud and snow--standard fare here in the Midwest.
