At some point every Jeep owner makes a decision about how they intend to use their vehicle. For some owners this is an evolutionary process, some revolutionary, some have it figured out before the ink is dry on the contract.
I bought my Jeep thinking that I'd be hitting the forest service roads and doing a bunch of camping. I was right.
But then I got further offroad and found the areas where my Jeep could be improved in terms of safety and ease of travel ---- accent on not getting stuck and self-recovery, if necessary.
Then I discovered the joy of wheeling in really remote/steep/scenic areas.
A good set of tires is the first and most fundamental step in the process of anybody that intends to take their Jeep offroad. Some tires are well-suited to mud, rocks, street, sand, etc, to the exclusion of other environments; the enthusiast is wise to research his tire choice...

After painful trial and error, I've come to love my Cooper Discoverer STT tires. They're good on everything that Georgia dishes out and are a relative bargain.
Cooper makes most of the high-end designer tires anyhow so I never even really considered most other brands. The only other tire that I've run that held a candle to them is the Goodyear MTR/kevlar ---- but they're not well-suited to sticky mud and we have that in abundance here.
It's a Jeep; you set your own limits.
