All-terrains

Hey guys I need some input on some good all terrains. I have mud tires on my tj now but I don't want those for the winter and up here in PA it can get pretty nasty. What are the best to get? I really like the look of the BF Goodrich A/T but I wanna get the best bang for my buck. They need to be good in snow and rain. Any suggestions?

Nitto Terra Grapplers. Ran them all winter in PA and they were great. Took them out yesterday and wheeled the heck out of them and...they were great.

Not as good as true mud tires off road, but a really solid compromise.

Our shop sells a ton of the Hercules Terra Trac AT 2. They have a decent tread design that work pretty well in all conditions. None of our customers have come back with any bad things to say about them. For a reasonably priced tire, theyre worth a look. They're a similar tread pattern to the Falken Wild Peak AT... (top is herc, bottom Falken)

I've got General Grabber AT2's on my truck and I love em. The tread looks like the BFG's but at much less cost. The wear on them has been excellent. I haven't run them on the Jeep but I plan too once the set I have is worn out.

the falken wild peaks are probably the best out there, but the tread design wears away too fast and they are way too heavy.

duratracs are a top rated tire on the street and do well in any offroad situation. I'm on my second set and would only choose the MTR's over them when my rig becomes a secondary vehicle

BF Goodrich TAs in this all day long! This past year we had a couple of days where we had close to 14" overnight and we were out in it having fun!

I've got 33" Duratracs on mine, the 80+ inches of snow we got in the Chicago area didn't slow them down at all last year.

I have the same set up and they're awesome. And not to expensive.

I like BFG TA KO but for snow duratrac has the edge but the weak thin sidewalls make the duratrac a poor trail choice

depends if you wheel in the southwest or not. and the bfg sidewalls really arent any stronger.

that said, i really hope goodyear puts a kevlar sidewall on the duratracs in the future

Flip a coin on the BFG and Duatrac both an excellent choice.

Too bad your not local as I have a set of 5 procomps and 31" BFG's mounted brand new for sale.

If your going to be switching tires often a second set of wheels save time and hassle.

I just put a set of 31" duratracs on my TJ 1 month ago and drive 60 highway miles a day and absolutely love them. Was afraid at first of how they would handle on the highway, but they handle awesome. So I definitely suggest duratracs.

Duratracs are a night and day difference over my old BFG AT's, both on and off road. I would never go back to the BFG's.
