Recommend tires

Can anyone give me a good recommendation on tires that i can take on all terrains for a price range of like 150-$195 a tire. I have a '93 wrangler NOT LIFTED on STOCK shocks but I'd like to get the larger tires than what I have now. I was thinking 31s or 32s if I can fit those with a 10 inch width. Any suggestions?

Most of the time 30 or 31 is the max with no lift. BFG ATs always get my vote and they should be in your price range. I've also heard good things about Goodyear Duratracs.

If your using a 10" wide wheel you may want to check the back spacing before choosing, so you don't have rubbing issues on turns, before I lifted my jeep I had 31/10.50/15 but on 15x8 wheel and it was ok. This was a pic when it was stock height. Click image for larger version

What are you doing with the Jeep? What are your driving %age wise?

if its mainly a street vehicle run by WalMart they have some good named brand tires and you cant beat their warrenty and there is a WalMart in just about every town.

You cant go wrong with the BFG AT's...unless you are driving a dedicated mudder..

Went with the 30x9.5x15 General Grabber AT2's. Heard they make a very good AT tire with little noise and great value for price. Had to get new wheels also so got black rock lobo steel

They were a set of cheap Good Ride tires, I only bought them temporary so I could drive the jeep a little while building so I was looking for cheapest tire I could get through work, they actually didn't ride that bad, I paid around $50.00 each and the wheel was a simple black steel wheel, about $45.00 each.

BFG A/Ts. Great on the street in rain and snow. Great off road tires too. I was skeptical buying them at first but my tire guy talked me into them over mickeys and cepeks. These things have grabbed on rocks, mud, sand no problem and ride quiet on the pavement.

Super happy with my Cooper AT's. 30 x 9.5 x 15. Haven't had them off road yet but they ride well on the road and are quiet.
