ProComp or Mickey Thompson?

I'm starting to look at new tries for my F250 as my old BFG AT's wear down. I have to say they were really good in the sand here in south Florida but on the road they would have a heck of a time hooking up on good asphalt. Wore really fast too. Original tires were the Wrangler ATS and they didn't last long either, hooked ok on the road and weren't that bad off road. Now I'm looking at either the ProComp XTreme All Terrain or Mickey Thompson ATZ in size 35X12.5R20. My question is which tire should last longer? Im upgrading from the stock 275/65R20 (leveling the front, and dual stabilizers). I do 95% city driving. Stop and go to work and school and off the road almost every weekend. No mud, just sand. ANy recommendations? Also looked at Trail Grapplers but I don't think they'll last that long. Price is not an issue.

Thanks Guys.

I just bought some Mickey Thompson ATZ's and I love them. I went with the 37x13.50x18. They make the 20" in a 35x13.50x20. Dont know if you can run the 13.50 but I just think the extra width looks cool! I mainly drive in town and I make a 3hour round trip every other weekend to get my kids. They did great on the interstate! I havent had them off road, but my friend that is the manager at the Cooper Service where I bought them has his second set on his Chevy 2500 and said they do good in light mud. Naturally they arent very aggressive so I wouldnt want to get too crazy in the mud. lol Anyway I work for Cooper Tire and Rubber Co. here in my town and Cooper owns Mickey Thompson, and we also build the Pro Comp Tires. I think either tire would be a great choice, and they are American Made! Let us know what you decide to go with.

I'm pretty much sold on the Mickey Thompson's mainly for the look and tread pattern. When the time comes could you get me a price on a set or don't you sell them?

No I dont sell them, I work at the factory. But I would be more than happy to get you a price on them. I think I gotta run up to Cooper Service sometime Wed and make sure my old tires and wheels that came off my truck when I got my new ones are not in their way. lol Got to get them sold! lol I will get a price for you when I go up there.

The Mickey's wont last as long. I have the pro comp xtreme A/Ts and they are great. I went from a set of BFG A/Ts and the difference is unbelievable. The Mickeys do look good but the pro comps have a 40,000 tread wear warranty as well.

I've had both in 325/65/18 and each is a really good tire. I got 40K plus out of the Pro Comps and am approaching 60K on the MT ATZs. Probably could get over 60K if I'd done a better job of rotating them.

Rotating is the key. Keeps them wearing true and make the ride much, much better.

I've had really good luck with the Toyo AT's on my truck. Wear has been really good and they ride great.
