Tire question?

Hey Folks.

I have a 2009 Jeep Sahara Unlimted with 18" Rock Stars with factory tires. I am about to put a 2.5" lift on it. I use the Jeep as a daily driver and am looking to go with new 325-60-18 tires. I do not off road but want an aggressive looking tire that is suitable for the road and comfortable to drive. Any recomendations would be appreciated!!!!

Wrangler duratrac. This tire can do it all and is not to radical. Good quite tire, great in mud and snow. If you want a more tame street tire, might look at the michelin MS2 I think they call it. Great tire for highway with all season capabilities. For your use I would go with the michelen, hands down and whatever u get, try to get a load range D or even E. By the way the jeep must be a car as jeep puts load range P (passenger car) tires on them.

A load range of D or E is not what he wants for highway driving. Both load ratings are heavier and more suitable for trail use and heavy vehicles. An AT tire in a load rating of C is what he should be looking for based on the size he wants and what he is going to use his jeep for. I second the vote for the GY Duratracs. Great tire and it does do just about everything well. You might consider the BFG AT K/Os.

Stupid question, but does that require a gear swap?

Not a stupid questions brother, 33's do not require a re gearing but you'll certainly feel the difference with them running off 3.21 gears. No need for 6th gear anymore, maybe 5th too.

Thats good to know. I am planning to get some 33's at sometime. Haven't quite figured out the big numbers if you know what I mean. I was thinking 325 had to be 35's. My bad. With 3.73 gears would 33 hurt mpg much?
