Tires

Hello
My 35" BFGoodrich MT tires are running really low on tread and i'm looking for some new cheap tires...
My friend that I bought the Jeep from works for a tire company and said he could get some for about 150$ each... I need 5...
Here is a link to what i'm thinking...
General Tire * The Tires * Light Truck

Let me know your opinions please.

What type of wheeling do you usually do?

The tires you are looking at are light truck. If you use your jeep mainly for commuting and like to do a little offroading I would suggest you check out the Goodyear Dura-Trac. I put them on my Unlimited about 2 months ago and it is amazing how smooth they are on pavement and how much traction they have offroad.

For what you are telling us do not waste your money on these tires. These are for off road and you would just burn them off on the street. I would suggest a light truck mild all terrain.

I've got about 750 miles on a brand new set of Duratracs, 200 of those off road on various sand dunes, tank trails, ORV trails, and the like.

The Duratracs behave well on the freeway (wet or dry), they are quiet, the sand/mud performance is excellent with good tire clear-out. I can't wait till it snows. Not to mention they have a shit-hot aggressive look to them.

Just my $0.02.

The JP review pretty much said they sucked in mud, otherwise they were very satisfied with their performance.
