They scored kinda low on a shoot out in one of the magazines, but what that means to you and me, who knows, as I have never used them, and know nobody who has, some of those shoot outs are kinda biassed too.

I've heard that their fairly soft tires, and are smaller than advertised, ie. if you want a 33" mt tire, you get the 35's. So your 39's might be like 37's. I think if you are going to go with real mud tire, go with Interco, get their TSL radial, get them siped and they'd last longer than the mickeys. I've never had them, just word of mouth. Their a cool tire, but i think there are other better tires for that price. Oh ya, either the claw or the radial has weak sidewalls, their awesome in sand though apparently.

I wouldn't get them because the pricing at tire shops is based on volume of sales for that particular brand, like everything else for that matter...if they sell only five per month vs. if they sell 300 per month of another obviously their supplier will give them a better deal. Go with the the TSL's!

I can get a set of four with about 85 to 90% tread, four $1400.00 with rims. Just wondering if its worth it. Didn't really want them that big though. Running 35s now, not even sure thats the ideal size for me. Thanks for the input anyways guys.

Unless those are really fancy rims I would say they are not worth that.
