38x15.5x20 tires?

hey all,
ok so right now i have toyo mts in the above size. i love them, i was just wondering what other tires are out there, i have kind of noticed that toyos seem to run smaller than other tires

i was looking at the maxxis creepy crawlers, dick cepek crushers, procomp xtreme mts, procomp xterrain, and the toyos again...i personally like the big meaty tread design on my truck because it makes it look beasty

i would like something that has at least as high or higher of a mileage length as the toyos, i do go in the dirt quite often...i do go to the snow a lot! so i want something that will grip well in the snow and the mud but perform well on the street...quietness

the toyos are great in the mud, dirt, and snow right now, just wondering what else is out there

any help would be great,
what are you thoughts?
thanks

Yeah Toyo's do run a hair small in their sizes. The one mfr that always ran true to size was the Super Swampers. Of course they went out of business and it will be late spring/early summer before Interco starts production of their molds again but I digress.....
YOu really can't beat the Toyos for wear, I would just go up a size in them

yeah i have noticed that the toyos have great wear, but my buddy's mtzs also get good wear, he had them for about 50k miles and still had about half his tread, plus he had great traction

ya i guess i could go up a size in toyos probably 40s but the only downside is that EVERYONE HAS THEM!!! you know what i mean, at least everyone around here that is...

here are the two tread designs



or even these, they seem to wear well on my jeep

or

I have Toyo's now.
My last set of tires was MTZ's.

My Toyo's WAAAAY outlasted my MTZ's

I got about 50,000 out of my MTZ's when they were done, and my Toyo's have 65,000 so far and I am on pace to get anither 5-8000 out of them

I know a couple guys who have 70,000+ out of their ATZ's so far.

Just my experiences. Hope it helps.

really????

hmmm, that adds some doubt in my mind...idk i have the toyos now, i just like the tread pattern of the mtz. what kind of driving do you do mostly? towing, highway, city, offroad, etc...

im trying to find something that looks good, is not very common, and lasts a good amount of time

thanks for the heads up

I believe Mickey Thompson just stopped producing the 15.50 wide tires. I just bought a set of 36x15.50x20 ATZ and my shop was telling me they were stopping production soon on them.

I just ordered a set of Mickey ATZ (same size as OP) and cant wait to get them.

I was looking for something that was better/quieter on street...the ATZ's seemed the best way to go. I have the same set of tires as OP and like them but too noisy on street for my taste
