Goodrich all terrains or gy armour trac

my son wants the beefy look of Goodrich All terrains and im telling him the Goodyear Armour trac or silent armour or SR/A have a tread pattern more suitable to what you drive. He drives on the street back and forth to college. The few times he run on a sandy beach any of these would be fine.. Any feed back to give to a 20 year old who is new to tires and jeeping? any reason the GR all terrains would be a better choice/worse choice? Thanks

BFG AT's are OK and mine were great at the time and still not bad. I have since found better options in my opinion. The GY Silent Armor has circumferential grooves that will help evacuate water and resist hydroplaning better than the BFG AT and is a good all around tire for mostly on road. It will perform well in sand and packed snow as well. I should say the BFG AT does perform in the sand pretty good. The GY Duratrac looks beefier than the BFG AT and is also a great performer. It appears to be gaining popularity over the BFG AT among Jeepers. I put a set of Duratracs on my son's TJ and we love them. He had the BFG AT's before these. In heavy rain and mud the Duratracs do better. They will soon be on my JK. We do a lot of trail riding but still mostly drive on the road so we don't run mud tires. FWIW the factory Sahara tires I'm currently running have been flawless for what I do. They are Bridgestone Duelers but don't look very beefy. None of these are very good in thick mud or clay except the Duratrac. Havent been in wet clay but sandy mud hasn't been aproblem at all for the Duratracs.

thanks for taking the time to write that review! my son also likes the beefiness of the dura tracs. I have to consider them since this is his first jeep and he's only 19 1/2. he wants the "tuff " look--dad wants the practical road tire
