Has anyone had any experience with mickey thompson baja stz tyers? Have looked online for reviews but they are very mixed & are from people that have only had them on for 3-5 thousand kms, the fellow at good year says with regular rotation we'll get 100k kms from them. Heading upto the gibb river rd in may then cape Levesque then west coast & back to Victoria. Towing a van (not on the gibb river)we know their made by cooper tyers, but would like comments from owners experience on these tyers. We have a 120 series prado.
Cheers Nev

Hi Nev
I have just recently replaced the Mickey Thompson STZs on our Prado 120 with a second set of the same. Have obviously been very happy with them. Travelled more than 100K km, much of which was over outback roads in five states and towing an off-road van. The only problem I had during the first 100K km was a nail puncture. Drive to the conditions with appropriate pressures and they will serve you very well. Very quiet on the blacktop as well.
Cheers
Helen

My son has the STZ on his FJ Cruiser. They are a nice quiet AT tyre. Not sure how many k's they have done as they were on it when he bought it, but he's done 20,000k and they haven't worn much.

My only concern would be with buying replacements should you destroy one in a remote area. Fairly mainstrean tyre in cities but not so much in the outback

We witnessed a road train unloading pallets of tyres at Birdsville. Two trailers of Coopers, no other brands on board.

That doesn't mean coopers are crap, simply that its pretty much all they stock.
You obviously get a better deal on two trailers of one brand than you will on one or two of every make, model and size. Why stock tyres that not many people use and you might have on the shelf for some time..

Our observations were that Coopers seemed to be the most widely available tyre in the outback areas.

Probably because Coopers are the most likely to self destruct, as mine did!

That's why they stock them....most widely used by city folk and most likely to self destruct !!

I have Mickey Thompson baja STZ on my vehicle. Have not has any problems with them. I have done over 60,000 kms on them and they still have heaps of tread left. Very happy with them and when they eventually need replacing will get another set of Mickey Thompsons. The way they are wearing it will be years before they need replacing.

Life's great and it just keeps getting better

I was interested in a set of the New ATZ P3s which are meant to be halfway between the stz and the mtz. Read alot of good reports on various forums. So I went to the local (independent) tyre shop and they were going to cost more than $150 extra per tyre compared to BFG KM2s or Cooper's new one. Although I've never owned a set I'm sure the Mickey Ts are a great tyre ... but I wasn't convinced they were THAT much better. I ended up with a set of BFGs for a good price that will only have to do 60% of the mileage to come out even.

My independent tyre retailer talked me into a set of ATZs for my 76 series cruiser and last year I upgraded to the P3s for a trip to the cape. I put the half worn ATZ tyres on the camper trailer - about 40000ks. I have now done 30000 ks on all surfaces on the P3s and I reckon they are worth every cent of the price difference. Mud, snow, sand, gravel and bitumen. My guess is they will do close to 100000ks but that remains to be seen. They tend to stand up a bit when pressures are dropped for the off road surfaces so you can actually go down a little more if the surfaces are mixed gravel and sand / mud etc. I'm a convert.
