I am just about to pull the trigger on these tires.  I just have to decide if I want a 17" wheel or an 18".  I originally wanted a 17" and wasnt even considering the 18", but now I've switched cuz my bro has been talking me into it.  I'm thinking about a 325/60/18 on an 07 4wd with the rancho 4" lift. 
Anyways, to my queston:

            Has anyone had experience with this tire?  If so, what did you think?

Any responses would be helpful.  Thanks in advance.

I just had the Baja MTZ's put on my '06 size 315/70/17 I had  the Baja Claws prior to the MTZ I got just over 30,000 miles out of them. The ride is much better on the MTZ's not as notchy but they still have the same sidewall pattern as the Baja Claws. I'm hoping the wear might be a little better due to the new tread pattern. Anyway if you plan on getting bigger brake rotors in the future you should go with the 18" rim because the larger rotor size requires at least an 18 " or larger rim to accept the larger brake rotor. (y)
Will the 325's fit?

I was looking at a 325 60 20 for an 05 WBH  w/6 inch lift.
Most thought that they would rub to much.

Here's a couple pics of the new tires...

what lift do you have , how do yah like the fox shocks ,front and rear ,do yah rub  ??
haven't gotten the lift yet.  i've pretty much decided on the cst after i saw it and the rancho side by side.  they are both made of the same thickness, lift the vehicle 4", blah blah blah.  very alike except that cst does not increase the track width which was a big plus for me.  i will have it lifted over xmas break.  the tires should fit with very, very minimal rubbing if any.  i think i've decided on 295/70/17 toyo open countrys.  i will post when completed, you can be sure of that.
