    Proven Worldwide. The Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ Radial Tire has proven itself time and again across the globe in the harshest conditions, offering superior traction and capability in tough mud and loose terrain. Featuring advanced tread features and a rock-hard compound, the MTZ pushes through wet, nasty stuff and resists punctures, shreds and jags from terrain hazards confidently.

    Mud-Ready Tread. The Baja MTZ was specifically designed for tackle gooey, sticky, difficult mud and tough trails with loose terrain. A uniquely designed deep-void tread, four-pitch SideBiter pattern, and aggressive shoulder scallops dig in and push out mud with ease.

    Ultra-Strong Compound. The Baja MTZ is as tough as it is capable. Mickey Thompson's PowerPly 3-ply construction reinforces sidewalls to prevent punctures and sticky situations on hazardous trails. A high silica content resists cutting, chipping and stone drilling, and high-flow zones dissipate heat buildup.

    Application. The Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ Radial Tire was specifically designed for trail-heading 1987-2017 Jeep Wrangler YJ, TJ, and JK models.

    What is the best gear ratio to run for larger tires? When you increase the diameter of your tires, your vehicle's engine has to work harder to turn them. Naturally, this will lead to increased fuel consumption and reduced performance. So, when upgrading to a set of larger tires you should re-gear your rig to regain this lost acceleration, performance and fuel economy.

    Find your original tire size and gear ratio using the chart listed below, the intersection should be your approximate RPMs at 65 MPH. Then find your new tire size and follow it across to the closest RPM to your original tires, this will be your gear ratio choice.

    This chart is based on driving at 65 MPH with a 1:1 gear ratio and a manual transmission in 4th gear. Please note if your vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission your RPMs will be higher due to normal transmission and the torque converter slippage. In overdrive your RPMs will be approximately 15% to 30% less than indicated.

      sweet tires!

      Upgraded from stock Rubicon tires (BFG Mud Terrain) to these about 6k miles ago and noticed a huge difference. Much quieter and smoother than I anticipated for a 35in tire - much better than stock! Great traction in mud/dirt/snow. Look great, ride great, all-around great tires! Will definitely stick with Mickey Thompson from here on out.

    I have an 02 tj with a 4 inch lift in it at the moment, just wondering if a 35 inch tire would give enough clearance for off road performance or would it be to big, I don't see power being an issue with a 6cylinder and 4.10 gears, but would anyone suggest a smaller tire, I'd prefer to run a larger set.

    • Hello! You will be able to run 35inch tires with a 4 inch lift on your 2002 TJ without any clearance issues!

    Are these the original MTZ's, not the P3's. I was told the MTZ's were no longer made.

    • Hello! These are the Mickey Thompson MTZP3's. Sorry about the confusion. We will have that updated.

    Will these tires fit on my stock Rubicon wheels for my 2015 JKU?

    • My '08 factory rim on my Sahara unlimited should fit these tire? I think it's only 7.5", but that is only 1/2" off.

    I have a 89 wrangler with enough lift to support the tires but I don’t want to go to big as I still use the Jeep as a daily driver but also want to go on some trips with some minor rock climbing (just thinking of starting to get into this never have done it). What size do most customers get, 33” or 35” and assuming these won’t fit on 15” wheels? Thanks

    I have a 2016 jeep wrangler unlimited Saraha. I want a few more inches of ground clearance than my stock 18 inch wheels and tires are giving me. These tires are available from 31 to 38 inches, I have read that 33inches is about as tall as you want to go without a lift kit. If so what size tire is the equivalent of a 33 inch tire. The tire sizes do not specify which ones are 33 inches, or do you pick the size and specify the diameter? The sizes you advertise are 275/70, 305/60, and 305/70, do they all come in 33 inch diameters and if so which one do you suggest is the best for my jeep in your opinion. Thanks for your input.
