I did on mine, and I definitely think it was. I got a slightly wider tire than stock, and the extra width and height makes a huge difference in looks, as does the tread design. I went from the stock 255/75/18 Duelers to 275/70/18 Duratracs. Very happy with my decision.

Here's a pic of my Jeep. I had the stock Bridgestone Dueler AT 255/70/18 tires/rims but changed to Nitto Terra Grappler 285/70/17 tires and 17" X 9" rims w/ 5" back spacing. The tires are actually 32.75" tall. The Jeep rides great and I am very happy with the upgrade.
