But I was wondering what the best A/T tire would be. I want something that will last and not kill me on gas mileage since I drive about 80 miles a day. But I want a tire that would get the job done when I get crazy. Any advice? I want to go about 1-2 sizes bigger and 1-2 sizes wider as well with no lift.
I'm in your camp after a month of Jeep ownership. I initially wanted to ditch my SRAs but after several trips to Ocala, I'm starting to reconsider. I've had the, in the soft sand, hard pack, and put about 4000 hwy miles on as well. In all of these situations they have performed well. Where they don't perform well is the mud and wet roads at hwy speeds (hydroplaning).
My research and many recommendations here has me looking at "the combo" or possibly silent armor rubber as already mentioned. That said, I will likely wait until I need new tires before swapping out as I'm pretty happy with the OEM gear.
Also, let me know of you'd like to meet in Ocala some time. I'm about an hour and change away.
