Tough look/nice riding tire?

I am looking to get a new set of tires but would like a nice looking rugged tire with a nice ride. Any suggestion?

What kind of trails will you be doing? What are your expectations with mpg? What wheel size?

I agree. You should know your primary purpose whether for city driving or off-road trips, or you want all-around tries.

Also how tough do you want it to look. The dynapro at looks pretty tough for an at but it certainly doesn't look like a mt

I want 33's. I will be doing 99% city and highway driving. Would like my mpg to stay descent. This is my first jeep and I am amazed how well they ride with stock tires. I don't expect the ride to be that smooth with more aggressive tires but I would sacrifice some of the aggressive look for a smoother ride. I own two sxs atvs and an ATV so most of my off roaring is done that way.

I would recommend the BFG AT for a smooth ride and decent looks. The Cooper Discoverer ST is pretty decent too.

If you want tougher, the Mickey Thompson MTZ might be a good choice. I just got them on my YJ today and they ride nice and are quiet. No experience with the tread wear though.

99% dd... look into the 285/70/17 duratracs or toyo at2. Both are exceptionally lightweight tires that perform great as a daily driver. i'd go duratracs for the looks, but toyo at2 p metric for the weight. 48lbs compared to 54lbs. 6lbs difference, but remember that an extra 10lbs to the wheels is equivelant to 100lbs.

both are very quiet... i have the at2 and w/ my soft top, i could barely tell the difference w/ the stock tires. very lightweight and i'm getting 19-20mpg.

The BFG AT are overrated.

They are a great road tire that does pretty well off-road. They just don't like mud too much. They are quiet, wear amazingly, and look pretty good. It would be a great choice for 99% pavement driving.

Idk about them being over rated. I have them and am looking for a new mt tire and can't seem to find any reasons why I should, they have done everything I've asked them to except for tall wet grass and slimy mud.

I'm not saying they are bad just overrated. So is the cooper m&s, works well people love em but again overrated.
I put dynapros on shortly after the sister in law put bfg's on. I drive more than she does mine are in way better shape.
Thers is a reason they Hankook made best AT tire for 2 years running. Just saying.
JMO. We had dynapros on the wifeys trailblazer they had about 60-65k on em and still had like 30% tread when we sold it.

I have the dynapro's on a land rover and the wear very well and are great in the snow and rain and a very smooth ride
