The Safari's don't seem to be as popular as they once were. They have a reputation for durability. The most popular all around tire currently seems to be another Goodyear model the Duratrac. Coopers are durable and tend to be reasonably priced. There are a lot of very good tires but it really depends on the amount of off-road bias and the type of off road terrain.

They used to remind the MT ATZs I used to run with a slightly higher void ratio. The ATZs were great in sand but were a bit loud with respect to aggressiveness of the tread. The tread on the sidewall tends to buzz if not designed properly.

I had the Safari TSRs on my old TJ. No problems. Very good all around tire. I currently have Fierce Attitudes on my JK.

What I was told was that Goodyear was trying to phase out the Kelly brand, but it's very popular in some areas so it's coming back some. When I asked about Kelly's for my Jeep he suggested I look at the Fierce Attitudes as well.
