mickey thompson atz p3 vs. cooper st maxx

if you have either of these tires post your opinions of them, trying to decided between the 2, i dont go wheeling often anymore (and prob wont untill next year when kids are older) but need good snow performance.

If snow performance is high on your list, you'd be best served by a tire that has earned the "mountain and snowflake" symbol. There aren't too many options, but the General Grabber AT2 and BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO both do. The upcoming BFG AT T/A KO2 should also meet that standard.

Another brand to look at are the Treadwright retreaded tires. Get the addition of "Kedge Grip" which is ground up glass and walnut shells added to the tread rubber and you'll have a set of tires that run circles around almost any other tire in snow and ice.

I have the MT Baja ATZ's. I haven't run them in the snow, but I'm also not going to either. They are really wide (33x12.5x15) and square. They also pack up with mud pretty quick. So my prediction for them is that they are going to be terrifying in the snow. So, I'm looking at replacing them for the winter (I'm on the east coast of Canada, we get a lot of wet snow.) with the Treadwrights. I'm looking for a size that is going to be good in the snow, a 17" rim and not small enough as to make my stock gearing suffer (4.10's) and not make my Jeep look like a porcupine on stilts with the lift.

I believe the Goodyear Duratracs have the "mountain and snowflake" symbol as well.
