Depends on what you do with your Jeep. Mainly DD use? If you offroad, is it mostly mud, rocks...?

I'm in Wisconsin, and chose the GY DuraTrac for it's great snow traction, long tread life, and light weight. However, I wouldn't trust it in the rocks, because of its relatively weak sidewall.

I like my Mickey Thompson MTZ. they are on my DD and I wheel with them in the sugar sand here in FL. Cant attest to their mud or snow qualities but I can say they are very quiet on the road for what they are. Best of luck cause this topic will have alot of different answers since its really a matter of opinion.

Good tread life, 3 ply sidewall, lightweight, quiet on the road, excellent in all conditions except mud.

I second the Mickey Thompson MTZ I put on alot of street miles, dry, rain, and snow. Also wheel frequently in mud and rock. Great tire.
