I'm only sporting the 31x10.5 right now but you can be sure when that next set comes around it'll be the 33x10.5's if I can find a tread as awesome as my duratracs. I love the look and personally, I like being a little narrower and tucked in. Blasphemous, I know, but for me it just works better. Stay sharp pizza friends!!!

That's what I'm talkin bout, serious "Old School"!

Having put about 18,000 miles on my jeep since my first post, I have to say I still love the tires. As I stated earlier, I would have put a more aggressive tread design if I didn't drive it so much but pizza cutters are the only way I roll.

The Coopers are still very good off road tires and while I've gotten it stuck a few times I think it was more operator error than tire selection that caused it.

I've put some old Jeeps through the ringer with no lift & stock all terrain tires & had a blast doing it get a winch or off road with a buddy & a strap if your gonna get stuck OP your Jeep looks great I'm loving that Black Forest Green paint a guy at work has a 2d rubicon that color & I thought it was black until he walked me over to it & man what a deep pearl color

These are just the Wrangler Territories from Canadian Tire. 235/85R16. They were on sale for $180 or so a piece and I really needed something better than the stock SRAs which gave me white knuckles in snow.

I'm looking at the 235/80/17 for my 2011JK, for when my stock tires are worn out.
How do you find the CT Wrangler Territory's performance?

Here are my new tires, stock size 255-75-17's just after washing and install. I would think these qualify as pizza cutters?

To be honest I'm not sure I've had them long enough to give you a good answer. The most i've done with them was go over the 10-16" high snow banks at the end of my driveway that the plows leave behind, easy peasy. A bit slippy on ice. Not too noisy, but not silent. Supposedly they aren't as durable as the Duratrac tires, but I don't intend to crawl over sharp rocks. Nothing makes me happier than when they call for 15+ cm of snow To be expected, It seems like I use about 2L/100km more fuel over stock. I bought them because the reviews were good. I just wish I got them with OWL

Thanks efm-7.
I figure they will work for my DD and the light to moderate off road stuff I will be doing.
I'm not rock crawling so I think they should be fine.
If they handle an Ottawa winter, they should be fine for a Nova Scotia winter.
When they go on sale they are $400+/- cheaper compared to the Duratracs (I'm doing all 5 tires for replacement)
To me that is a significant issue.
Thanks again for the input

For snow tires I stay with Bridgestone Blizzaks. Have always been of a great help here in the Swiss Alps where the road to my house is around 40%...

I found out that Blizzaks are available in 205/80 R16. Anyone experience with a size like that?

Now that sounds WAAAAY too skinny for a JK, the narrowest JK tire is a 225 profile i believe.

Edit: unless you drive something else that is...

Nah, currently driving a LR and dreaming about a JK for over a couple of years already. Just waiting for the right moment and realizing that my little Exell sheet with future mods is not so little anymore :P And the dawm Jeep ain't here yet!
Regarding the tyres: I was just wondering how skinny and tall one can go for a JK. So I guess you just answered that partially

Some manufacturers (Good Year for example) have specifications for every tyre, indicating minimum and maximun wheel width. I'm runnin 235/80/17 on 7.5 wide rims, and according to them that's the limit. So I guess you cannot go less than 235 on a 7.5 Rim... at least for an 80 profile.

Nope, 4.

Over $110 of that is for "freight and handling" from another store location....

No wonder Canadian retailers are going bust.

Yep. One of the reasons I got my tires and wheels off Discount Tire Direct. Cheaper than buying local, and great customer service. Oh well*.

Do you get it shipped directly or do you pick up across the border?

I have a stock '12 JKU Rubicon, thinking ahead on next set of tires keeping stock 17" wheels. Anyone running The BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 in 255/80 R17?

They look like a little less aggressive tread than the KM's that came on the Rubi. I do desert rocks, etc. so seems like may be a little smoother/quieter on pavement without losing much off road..

What do people think?

Thanks!!

Supposed to be a really great tire. I'm curious about on road performance as I prefer an AT. I've only got 1800 miles on my 245/75r17 GY silent armor tires, so It will be a while before I have to decide.

Well I have my MOAB edition wheels and tires up for sale now that I have bought some 35mtr Kevlar. Pizza cutters what is normal for these, Jeep is in Houston currently awaiting PID so everything is mounted/ balanced just couldn't get over the fact of putting a 4" lift and running the a/ts.

I believe it would be 33in tires depending on the width. 33in pizza cutters would fit no problem.
