Replacement for Baja MTZs

The tires I have now are 305/70/16 and have about 40% tread left. These tires will never see conditions they were meant for so I'm looking for something more A/T. I'd hate to see how these currently handle in the snow until I get a new set.

My driving is nothing but highway. I've looked at the Trail Grapplers, but I don't see them available in the size I want. I'd like something as wide (or wider) than the MTZs I currently have.

Lastly, I'm not even sure of the wheels I have to know how wide I can go. I believe they are aftermarket, but I don't see anything stamped on them indicating the brand.

I have always loved my mtz's and they were great in the snow with 35 percent tread and i was in the north east blizzard last winter. I will always buy them, I am on my 2nd set.

Interesting... I can't speak from experience at all. I don't mind the MTZs. I just figured they'd be a bit over-kill for how I use then, and I just didn't figure they'd handle good in the snow.

I'm not financially in the position to buy right now anyway so it's not going to hurt me to give them a shot once the bad weather rolls around.

Toyo Open Country A/T. EXCELLENT highway mileage, very quiet, decent in the snow.
