AT tires ?

95 2.5 ax5
I'm looking to get new tires here soon probably going to get some AT tires cause its mostly a dd. What would you recommend for tires and what size I'm running 235/75/15 right now with a 2.5 lift should I stay that size or go up to 30-9.5-15 don't really want to go much bigger then that.

i run the falken wildpeaks 33x12.50x15 and love them not too loud on the road and still do good off-road and I'd go bigger if I were you IMO it looks better

I had 30x9.5xR15 BFG A/T's on my 91 with 2.5 Ax-5 4:10 and it was great. I could do highway speeds and the A/T gave me good traction off road too. I must say that they didn't do too well in deep mud, but they were great in the snow. I loved those tires and got 80,000 miles out of them.

When I upgraded to 32's, I would've gotten them again in that size, but I wanted better traction in the mud, so I got the KM2's. But I would highly recommend those to Jeepers with the same set-up that my Jeep had. I was actually pretty sad when I gave them to the tire shop bc they were always dependable when I needed them lol, and 80,000 miles of service speaks for itself.

I'm running Falken High Country AT's 30/9.5/15 and mine is stock height. With a 2.5 lift I'd go 31's.

My 91 is stock suspension and I replaced BFG 30x9.5 with BFG Rugged Terrain 235/75/15. The 30's were shot and the Rugged Terrains fit my budget.

If you have a 2.5" lift it isn't recommended to go above 32s because of rubbing. I have a 2.5" lift with 32-11.5R15 Wrangler MTR with Kevlar and couldn't be happier. Mud, ice, sand and street they haven't let me down

I've got Cooper Discoverer AT3's that are 30x9.5-R15LT's on a 1.25" lift and they are awesome. I got my work truck, Jeep Liberty with all weather road tires, stuck in my field today trying to spin it around to repark it and it wouldn't budge, I drove laps around it in my YJ with these Coopers and didn't get stuck at all. Had to compact the snow to make ruts for the liberty to ride in.

The Cooper Discoverer AT3's have a similar tread pattern to the Bridgestone Dueler AT's, which are somewhat hard to find. Couldn't be happier with these tires, they are just about all purpose and do well in the mud as well. My stepdad-in-law owns a shop and they have them on all their 4x4's and plowing rigs as well.

BFG A/T KOs. Good traction on the rocks and sift sand at 10-15 pounds. Three ply sidewalls and good wear with my lockers.

No rain here in Vegas so wet traction is unknown.

Did OK in snow on the mountain compared to others who couldn't go at all.

I have the firestone ata on my wife's tribute and my 2500 dodge cummins and love them. I will put them on my jeep when the tires I'm running wear out.

bfg all terrains suck in sand and mud because the tread gets packed and you won't get traction. my next tires after my hercules are going to be the pro comp xtreme mt2

While they may not be the greatest in mud, they are excellent in sand. Probably one of the best tires in sand. And they are great on the road, in all weather conditions. I've had them in rain and snow with no problems.

I currently run 31x10.50 General Grabbers on my '95 with a stock suspension and have no problems at all. I'm looking to get new tires and have had several people recommend a set of Falken Rocky Mountain ATS. I can get a set of 4 for about $625 out the door. From what I've heard, these are pretty good on the road and the trail.

My Tire Wholesaler here loves the Hankook Dynapro MTs, that will most likely be my next tire on my Ram 2500 4X4, he has never steered me wrong. It now has the Master Craft AXTs, Good tires, but they will Not Pull a Cumins in the Mud!

Have the same tires on my yj, except mine are 31x10.50 . Quiet and look good. Have not had them in much mud. But what little I have had them in, they pulled good

That's cause they are an AT if you play in mud a mud tire is what would be the best option

Well I ended up buying s set of 31-10.5-15 Trail Guilds used for $200 with plenty of tread and in good shape. Got to love Craig's list. I'm happy with them didn't realize my mud tires were that loud gill I put these on.

X2 on cooper at3 tires. I have 31x10.50-15 on my tj. They are great all terrain tires. Great road manners(wet and dry) and performed very well in the snow. Very little road noise. I've only used them in some sloppy fields but not really any major mud.
