Pro Comp 51 Series

Hey everyone I just got my first wrangler and it's actually my first car, so I apologize for my lack of knowledge! But I'm looking to switch out the good year SR-As that I currently have on my jeep and put on Pro Comp 51s. http://www.procompusa.com/prodDetail...21&plID=108956
But I was wondering, how are these tires on the road as I'm going to be driving to school and work daily.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your first Jeep! First off, the Pro Comp 51's are steel wheels (not tire). and second, most users I've seen have gone with a 16" wheel as opposed to a 17" wheel. Looks better with a larger tire to wheel ratio. If your looking into tires most go with the GY Duratracs, Nitto Terra Grappler AT (also Trail Grappler M/T), BFGoodrich KM2's, and General Grabber AT2's. These are the most popular and have great feedback.

Also some very positive reviews on Treadwrights (retreaded) Tires. they are about half the price of the others I've mentioned. www.treadwright.com

If your looking to increase the size of the tire, 33's will fit without a lift.

I run the Procomp series 52 rims and like them. As to the size, think about a 15" rim. Tires are way cheaper for a 15. You will need less backspacing to clear your calipers though.

Now what do you plan on doing with your jeep? This is what determines which tires to get.

Not much besides the tires since Im on a high school kid's budget. I just want some nice all terrain tires that won't break my bank, and I do love the pro comp rims. Right now I just have the stock Goodyear sr-a wrangler tires which I'm not a huge fan of lol. And I won't be installing any
lift packages for about a year or so.

Do you play in the mud, sand or rocks? Or do you stay on the road? An all terrain will do all of these decently. My favorite one is probably the BFG AT, but I've heard duratracs are great.

Now if you get off road a lot but still want good road manners, I'd recommend the Mickey Thompson MTZ. I put some on and I fell in love. Quiet on road, grip like crazy off road and look mean. A great all-around tire.

I'm liking the idea of the MTZs I'm gonna have to check them out! Thanks for all your help man!

No problem. I was/am in a spot like you. I was a high school junior when I got my jeep. Tons of ideas for it, but no money to do it. Now I'm a college sophomore with tons of ideas and no money. Lol its a terrible addiction.

It gets worse after you do the first mod. I thought I was ok on a 2.5" lift and 31s. Less than a year after that first mod, I have 6" of lift, tube fenders, bumpers, rock sliders, lockers, 8.8 axle, and 35s.
