Red face Looking for tires for DD & Off Road

I need help. I've been looking and I cant find anything that i really really want and it's hard to tell how they would look on my jeep. If you got any links to great tires for use of a daily driver and a off roader please post em up. I need tires like yesterday and I can't decide. Thanks guys!

These are Yokohama A/T's 31.10 and they do great on just about any surface. Like with any A/T they will gum up in thick mud but that is why you should use M/T's for serious mud...

A little one the pricey side for A/T's but BFG All-Terrains are the shiz for daily driven rigs.

It's hard to have both....All terrains are sorta the middle ground. Mud terrains do fine on the road so why don't you just go with them?

It really boils down to what type of off roading you are going to be doing and how often.

I run the GoodYear Dura-Trac on mine, It's a DD with some light trail runnin. The road manners are great, handles rain and mud (they haven't seen snow here). They clean up easy and I haven't had a problem with mud caking up on them. You should be able to run 31 x 10.5 without any mods

I am running BFG At 31-10.5's on mine. It is my DD and I do a little off roading (nothing too crazy), but they are wonderful tires. I bought it with them on it and will definately get the same tires when the time comes.

I just put them on my Jeep. and I love them as well. I mainly decided on them due to my old boss. He has a very rural cabin in new mexico mountains. He ran them on his little Nissan Hardbody 4x4. and constantly raved about them. they handled all that NM mountains could leash out....so I figure they are good enough for me.

I have to say I couldn't be happier. I even love the smell of the new rubber.

Hey Ayo- as I said before, for the best bang for your buck, Firestone Destination A/T's rock. Been through many winters in our area with NO trouble at all on them. Tirerack (Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels) has them for a pretty solid price- check them out- Mark W.
Edit: Also, the BFG A/T KO is NOT rated for severe weather, so stay away from those- Mark W.

JDs, how many miles you got on them so far and how is the road noise compared to the stock tires? Thanks!

I have about 12,000 and there is no comparison. These ride so much smoother and are a lot quieter. I was told that I still had a good 20,000 left on the stock wranglers, but I had tried everything else I could find to get rid of my DW. (it was reallllllllly bad). I can't say that these are any better or any worse then the others that have been recommended, but I know that this is probably the best thing I have done for my Jeep so far. I do a lot of highway driving (70-80mph) and light trail. So far, no problems.
