    Well- Secret Santa, My Girlfriend and my Parents all got together to buy me a new set of tires for my truck- Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ's- 265/75/R16E! Got them about 2.5 weeks ago- have used them to plow in 3 storms and all I can say is AWESOME! They clear snow like crazy and grip like no other tire I have ever seen before! Love them! Anyways- here's the pics- also make the truck look great too IMO!ussmileyflag

    Thanks! Yeah lol- I told them all exactly there to get them- got them for $211 each, but the prices for '09 are $264/each- got them just in time! Plus mounting and balancing and an alignment which I paid for.

    Not bad at all really- little bit of a growl going around corners and a little hum on the highway but nothing really noticeable.

    do you notice any wandering on the roads, especially at higher speeds from the tread pattern?

    Not really any wandering to speak of- have had it up to 80MPH and none really.
