Hi all! I will be in the market for sone new tires real soon and need some opinions/thoughts. I do not think that I can get "The perfect tire" but I will list what I want in a tire. My JKU is my DD but I do want to wheel with it. I plan on going with 315/75r16s or 35/12.50r15(more limiting, but less expensive, i have 3.73 gears and dont really want to change that if possible)
MUSTs - Excellent traction in rain, decent in snow, off-road worthy for rocks, sand, water, some mud (currently in FL, moving to TN next year), and #1 must = safe for my 2 & 4 yr olds
Would LIKE - beefy sidewalls, lowest weight possible, to pay less than $300/tire (know this wont always be possible)
Don't care about - street noise, how they balance (Im not doing this myself)
Any input on anything would be appreciated.
