Mickey Thomson ATZ reviews plz :D

Hey guys I'm up in BC Canada, i was looking for the longest time at the Nitto Terra Grapplers, but they are hard to get up here right now with the dollar and availability, a more readily available tire is the 35x12.5 R 20 Mickey Thomson ATZ, i used the forum search tool and not too much came up on them. So basically I'm lookin for some opinions / reviews from those of you who have run these / know people who run these.... as far as road noise, and mainly tread wear, our heavy trucks tend to burn tires quick. I appreciate any feedback and thank you all in advance.

JUNK.....I have them on my truck right now, the rubber starting coming off in chunks from the middle of the lugs!!!! I called Mickey Thompson and they want me to send the tires back to them for inspection?????....yeah I will take my tires off so you can "inspect" them only so they can come up with some bull**** excuse why my tires did this. A MT dealer does not have the authority to deem a tire defective!!! So I will put my stock wheels and tires back on and save some $$$$ for spring so I can melt these off and buy something different. Just my experience.

I have two sets of tires i have the cooper STT 35x13.50xR20 for my summer tires with my nice 20 inch rims and i have a set of Mickey Thompson ATZ's 35x12.50xR18 for my stock rims to run in the winter time. The ATZ's are great on snow and ice and are a fairly firms tire well at least for an AT or a MT goes. So if your looking for a a tire that looks good and will last a little longer the ATZ's are great! But i would stay away from heavy mud they dont clean out for $*** then you get STUCK! Just my two cents

I have Baja ATZ'z and they've been great. I think i have about 8-9000 miles on them so far and they're wearing really evenly w/ plenty of tread left. Good in the rain, haven't had them out in any real snow so far.

My 325/65R18's have held up rather nicely even when mounted to a skinny 8.5" wide wheel. Keep them rotated and aired up for long life. Road noise isn't bad at all, I get tons of compliments since they stick out a tad. The sidebiters will get chewed up on curbs if you park too close. I guess I got 30-40K maybe more on them now with at least 10k or more to go to the wear bars. Wet traction could be better, don't think about going into deep mud, dirt roads don't slow these tires down.

I kept mine at the max air pressure recomended, I thought they got noisier and noiser, people always say how badass they look, I wish they held up better.
