Help! Need new tires

I'm currently running Radial Mud Rover 31X10.5R15 and they are absolutely horrid on the open road. I've never felt more uncomfortable with a tire in my life and I had the original Wrangler tires! What do you suggest getting for a new tire. I have a 2005 Wrangler X. I'm looking at Bridgestone A/T Revo 2. I just dont know which size to get. What size and tire should I chose to have a smoother ride?

I'm currently running the original wranglers on my 04 sport, I asked around and only had 1 person say anything negative about the revos, he said that they rode hard. look at my posting (g-man last week) If you wait about a week I will let you know, I'm waiting for mine to get here. Im just south of indianapolis (lot of snow, just like you guys) the ones I have ordered are 235/75R15 for the stock wheels no lift needed.

I just put GY duratracs on mine Saturday, I love the way they look, and in the 5" of new snow we got last night they were like driving on dry pavement today.

Is your Jeep stock? If so, a 31 is about as big as you can go. Size won't affect ride anyway really, I don't think. It's more load range, and air pressure that will make your ride a bit softer. Make sure you have a C load range, not E and do the chalk test to make sure the pressure is where it should be. Lots of folks overinflate tires to help out with mpgs, but your ride suffers.

I had Revo's on a Liberty a few years ago replacing the stock Goodyears. Was like night and day. Good on or off road.

I just put Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10s on my JK, again replacing the stock Goodyears. Did great in all the snow we had here in the past 10 days. Seem good on dry pavement too. Besides that, the price is nice.

After research I went with the Yokama Geolander Mud tires. They look good perform good. I've got 35's on my Jeep and 33's on my F250. Give them a look.

I just got some good ole Sport Kings, and they have been just as capable as the GY MT/R's that was on it.

revos

got my revos on the night before last, and as one of the others said, difference is night and day, went out and played by one of the lakes here, between 3-8 of snow and didn't break traction until I decided to do donughts and floored it. on dry road, same noise as stock wranglers, but grabbed better and handled alot better. went from 215/75R15 to 235/75R15 with no susp. mods
