I had 35x12.50R-17 Dick Cepek FC IIs on my old two door JK. Ride quality is fantastic, and is really a lot better than any other off road tire I've used in the last ten years. They work very good in snow and on wet pavement, and when aired down to 8 psi they are the best sand tires I've ever had. They are not as good as an MT tire for ultimate traction on loose or rocky ground, and it is a little tougher to stay on your line through a tough obstacle. They are also a little floaty at high speed on gravel, and don't seem to have as much lateral grip as MT tires in this situation.

mine are kelly safari tsr's in a 31x10.50..put between 1 and 2k on them so far and love um..they are classified as an AT but are more of a hybrid but they ride very good, good on wet and dry pavement, nice little hum but not too loud at all, great in mud so far and decent on rocks..550 for 4 shipped to my door, goodyear owns kelly and these are kellys version of the duratracs..they look awesome in person pics do them no justice

Cepek FC IIs make more noise than a typical AT tire, such as a BFG AT KO. But they are not as loud as many of the MT tires are. One other important point, ... when I changed from 35" Goodyear MTR w/K tires to 35" Cepek FC II tires my gas mileage went up by 1.5 mpg.

I run Mickey Thompson Baja ATZs MT tires, and really like them. They handle very well, and are are pretty quiet.

Dick Cepek and Mickey Thompson are both Cooper brands.
