Anyone have any comments on Pro Comp Xtreme A/T, 305 / 65 /17, thinking of putting these on my new JK?

Thanks...Ted

I believe they wear very quickly. Not sure about that tho. Hopefully someone who has them or has had them will chime in soon... You'll need a lift and different wheels or spacers to fit that size tire on a JK too, btw.

Thumbs down

I put the Pro Comp mud terrain 33x10.50r15. I put these on in November, and 2 wheelin' trips and about 3000 miles later, there are chunks of rubber missing on two of the tires. And they SUCK in the snow!

My review of Pro Comp? 2thumbs down!

This doesn't answer the OP's question about ProComp AT tires, but there is a difference between the ProComp MT and the ProComp Extreme MT.

Here is a ProComp MT


And here is a ProComp Extreme MT


I have heard poor reviews of the ProComp MT, and good reviews of the ProComp Extreme MT. Lance03's review of the ProComp MT doesn't sound too rosey either. I have heard that an entirely different company makes these two tires. Cooper makes the Extreme MT, and it supposedly has the exact same carcass, and rubber compound, that Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ and Baja MTZ tires, and Cepek FC II tires have. They're all made by Cooper to the same specs, but have different tread patterns. Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ and MTZ tires, and Cepek FC II tires have good reputations, so it makes sense that the ProComp Extreme MT would also be a good tire.

It turns out that I happen to have a set of ProComp Extreme MT tires on my Jeep. They have 4000 miles on them now and have no appreciable wear. They ride smooth, track straight, and were reasonably easy to balance. Two tires took 9 oz of weights to balance, one tire took 15 oz to balance, and one tire took 16 oz to balance. That is a fair amount of weight, but the tires are smooth as glass, with no bouce at all. On road traction is fine. Off road traction is very very good, ... as good as any tire I've owned (Goodyear MTR w/K, KM2, Cepek FC II). Just last weekend I crawled a very technical rocky ledgy steep hillclimb without slipping a tire. There was 2" of snow on the hill, and this was the first time in 15 years worth of trying that I have ever been able to climb this hill with snow on it. I've tried with dozens of prior vehicles, and struggled in vain, only to have to winch to the top. I was very very surprised that the ProComp Extreme MTs took me over the top with no drama at all. I had gone to the hill that day to be able to test the winch. I had no idea the Jeep would make it over the top. I think these tires are fantastic, and I highly recommend them.

I would think the same thing would apply with the ProComp AT tires. Namely, the ProComp ATs are likely an economy tire, and the ProComp Extreme ATs are a good quality tire that works very well.

Just my .02.

Don't quote me on this, but I believe I was told they were built by Cooper. The Xtreme Terrains (not Xtreme A/T) are great offroad tires... and that's about it.

Something strange with all of the ProComp tire compounds, they are just soft.

Wow MOPWR2U, thanks for the insight and time to put that together for me. I am looking at the Extreme A/T which according to the shop have been great tires for them. I unlike you don't have the rocks/hills (live in S. Louisiana) but really like the aggressive look of the A/T but don't want to jeopardize the street ride as well. I'm thinking about ordering these today and mounting Dale Earnhardt Jr. (DJ1091) with a 2 1/2" lift on it so I'm am super excited to see the outcome.

I have the extreme at tires on mine and have had no issues. I have a few thousand miles on them, but I only drive 4 miles each way to work. But no issues. My biggest thing was finding the right psi to run them at to ensure even wear. I'm at 30 psi. I opted with them because they have a 40k mile tread warranty on them when the others I looked at had nothing. I had no issues in the snow here in central Texas last week no real issues with mud so far, seem to clean decently well
I picked up a nail in one and 4 wp fixed it up no questions asked.
They are quiet on the road, only a slight hum when the radio is down. I will probably go with a dif tire next time, but more because of looks than performance issues. I got a good deal on these at under $250 each with free lifetime rotate and balance, and no charge install.
Any other questions feel free to ask

Good price on them Adian, I just paid $287 plus mount/balance. I really liked the aggressive look so was really hoping the street wear/ride was going to be a good one. I pulled the trigger today on them!
