Dick Cepek Fun Country

Anybody running these? If so how do you like them and how is the snow/off-road/on road performance. Am considering these in the 285/70/17 size for my Jk I don't really know anybody that runs them. Any input is appreciated!

On a recommendation from the local 4x4 shop as the tire they use on their vehicles, I got the 31x10.5x15 for a 2003 TJ. Only had them for about a month and only driven a few hundred miles on road, but I love 'em. Surprised how they grip in rain

Cool! I can get these for $230 a tire for the 285/70/17 which I think is a pretty good price. I really like the tread design on these and they look like they would be a good DD and weekend off road tire.

I paid $210 for the smallest size they make. That included mounting, balance, disposal of old tires. I was also surprised at how big the lugs are, Cepek's marketing materials have rather flat looking 2-dimensional photos that don't really capture the full bad-assness of the tires. They will likely set the tire pressure to match the manufacturer's sticker in the door jamb, so use the chalk test to lower the psi to whatever it takes to get even/full tread contact. I'm down to 25 psi to get full tread flat on the ground.

There was just no way I was gonna buy some of the more popular tires that have lower quality sidewalls, less tread, less grip.

Awesome! Yeah I really like the way they look too and I know they have a good sidewall. Will be ordering mine soon! I figured I would be running around 25-30 psi we will see after chalk test. Thanks for your input!

What load range do you have and how do the ride on the street? I'm pretty much stuck with the E load range in my tire and rim size and I'm a bit worried that they are going to be hard as a rock.

The 31's are Load Range C, they ride smooth and have a wonderful tread sound. They are superly grippy on the street. I had stock GS/A's that were an inch shorter and narrower; just useless tires really.
