I tend to avoid distortion pedals with tube amps, since just using an OD to boost the tubes sounds better. And I use distortion pedals for SS amps since those don't have tubes to boost.

You COULD use them together, but it wouldn't sound very good I don't think. Unless the distortion pedal uses tubes, and it comes after the OD in the chain.

I want to try a overdrive pedal then. I just got a Metal Muff...for distortion. but maybe a fullltone OCD will be my answer.

They make pedals with distortion and overdrive channels. So yes, you can use them together and make it sound quite good.
My Gear:
American Deluxe HSS Strat
Crate GT212
Vintage '66 Fender Champ Amp
Dunlop Crybaby 535Q
Jekyll & Hyde Ultimate Overdrive
Vintage '74 MXR Script Phase 90
Vintage '77 MXR Flanger
Orange Squeezer (clone)

I got my metal Muff yesterday, but have found its not as versatile as i thought. Evan though its called a metal muff, i thought it would have a more open range.

i use a ml-2 metal core (disctortion)and ibanez tubescreamer(overdrive) together
gives great boost for solos
but put the overdrive before the distortion to ge tthe boost

i use a distortion pedal through a clean all tube amp. gives the pedal all the warmth and hugeness and people just think its the amp making the sound.
