Hey everyone! There are so many thread about all different tires, so I was thinking to put it all in one place like the lift review thread.

Post what brand, size and a few pictures. How much you paid for them and some pros and cons.

This will hopefully make it easier for fellow jeepers to quickly compare tires from actual people and get actual real life reviews so they can buy what they want.

If this does take off, hopefully a mod can sticky it so it's easier for everyone to find

Thanks!

33x12.50x15 Goodyear Duratracs on matte black 15x8 MB72 and no lift (yet)

[went through discount tire direct, got the 5 tires mounted and balanced on the 5 wheels with tpm for $1600. discount tire direct mounted and balanced and shipped the tires to my house for free, and gave me $50 off the 5th tire]

33/12.50/15 General Grabber Red Letters!

I love 'em! I had the BFG A/Ts before and the Grabbers out perform in many ways... The only thing is I am burning through them kinda quickly. They have lost 3/32 of tread in 10k miles... Other than that, perfect! And the red letters turn a lot of heads

I would recommend looking into the Rocky Mountain Falkens/ Falken Wild Peaks (same thing) or of course The BFG All Terrains. In my opinion the only general tire that you should get is the Red letters, (and they do come without the red letters) and I dont care for Goodyear. So I would look into the Falkens or the BFGs.. and whatever you decide buy them through Discount Tire/ America's Tire. They have the best prices!

Same here... Great tires! They are the most popular tire in the U.S. They haven't changed at all in at least 10 years... Well worth the extra buck

Good year Duratracs! I love mine 33x12.50x15 (actually measured 32x11.50" on the 15x8" rims). better than my old BFG T/A KOs. quiet and smooth on road, great in the rain- no hydroplaining. awesome in sand- no airing down. lighter than most A/Ts that means better MPGs, and they have an aggressive look to them.

On my second set of 305/70 17 Goodyear kevlar mt/r s. good looking /aggressive tread, great Offroad performance, quiet too. The only downside is price. Mounted and balance $1300 for 4. I don't know what I actually got mileage wise cause I bought the jeep used but ran 20,000 and they looked like they needed replacing when I started. Guessing 45k. Did I say they were quiet? I like e'm better than my bfg KMs. I like handkook dynapros too...

I have 17" ProComp wheels with 305/65R17 ProComp tires, all installed by the previous owner.

Nice wheels but I wouldn't recommend the tires (at least for daily drivers).

The tires are nery agressive but have become hard with age (not sure how old they are). They are great off road but tend to give me some sway and drift around town (good on the freeway though). A machanic at my dealer said he is familiar with ProComps and says this is typical. Like I said, they are great off road though.

Yokohamas?

I'm currently runnig the Kumho Open Country A/T's that my jeep came with when I bought it used. They measure 31x10.50 15.

I like them very much in the mud, which is odd because they have absolutely no sidewall tread. They are good on pavement as they do not make much noise and they have exceeded my expectations on trails thus far. With all of that having been said, I am very unimpressed with their performance in snow and on ice.

These tires are about due for replacement and I am thinking I will stay with a 31x1050 but I will be going with the Yokohama Geolandar. Does anyone have advice whether to go with the M/T or A/T model of that tire?

Hey guys, JK newb from Ohio here. I've gotten a lot of good information from the forum and I'm thinking Goodyear DT's with MB Chaos all around. What do you think this will set me back? Also, is a 15x8 Chaos 5 going to be alright with 33x12.5x15 DT's on it. I'm probably going to add the teraflex spacers in the future, but I'd like to hold off if there won't be any issues with this setup.

33x1250 Mickey Thompson MTZ. AMAZING tire. looks great, ride very well a little hum but very quiet overall and needed very little weight to balance. OUTSTANDING off road! I only have a few hundred miles on them so far but very pleased and will replace them with the same if they wear well and last a while.

Goodyear dura tracs get my vote. Have 31/10.50's on stock 15x8 canyons. I've got about 5K on them and no noticeable wear. Had to add one washer to the left side steering lock. Work great in mud, sand, rain, etc... They have excellent on road manners as well. I paid $140 ea from local wholesaler. I think GY has a rebate and Treadlightly also has a member rebate. Not a regular GY passenger tire fan but these are excellent tires!

I was looking into Kumhos but they slipped down my list when I saw reviews on the DuraTracs and BFG ATs. I definitely want tires that are good in snow so that probably finished off the Kumhos.

As far as the Yokohama, I don't personally know anything about that particular tire, but generally the M/T models are going to wear down faster and have a noisier ride than A/T since M/T have very wide treading made specifically for mudding.
