Exclamation **** Tires & Rims ****

Hey, I have a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara and it needs new tires. The stock tires are worn out, I would also like to upgrade the size of the tires. I was looking at BF Goodrich Mud Terrain Mk2s but I have heard they are loud. I will be driving a majority of my time in town but I would like some that are good for off-roading. I would appreciate some advise on rims, tires, and possibly leveling kits. My budget is prety tight so nothing to expensive

I'm running KM2s on my DD ram and they are no louder on the highway then my old Terra Grapplers. they are a little rough as all MTs are around town at low speeds aka under 15. but the do just fine on the highway and towing. i say get a set of 285 70 17 KMs no lift and run them

Check out Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs. I just got them and they are awesome. Pretty close to Mud Terrain.

I run 33 km2s and love em. With the radio at moderate volume you can't hear them. They are actually quieter than my previous 31 km2s.

You might also want to consider the Toyo MT's, Nitto Trail Grappler, Dick Cepek Mud Country, Pro Comp Xtreme MT and Mickey Thompson MTZ.
