Changed from KM2 to Duratrac because I do a lot of highway driving and the KM2's were shaking me to the point I didn't want to drive my Jeep. I can't believe the difference. I also have the 33 X 12.5. Like RI said Great ride, aggressive, quiet.
Tread Lightly has $100 rebate on 4 Goodyears. Worth the $25 membership.
BFGoodrich All Terrain they are the beast one out there and they look good on the jeep
Yep, they are killer AT tires, but some of is don't like the street look they have and like a little more agressive mud tire look. MT Bajas or Cooper SSTs look good. I love the Aurora RT02 looks but they quit making them.
I have MTR's on my TJ and AT's on my CJ-5. The MTR's are a little loud but work much better off road than the AT's. The AT's are much quieter and better in the snow. Its a trade off for the kind of driving you do. 80% or greater paved roads, go for the AT's.
If you want performance off road go for the MTR"s. I really like them because they work so well. They do clog up in clay like mud but it takes a while and they do unload the mud fairly quick.
The AT's dont work very well in mud at all but are a better all around tire. Hope this helps.
Pends on what your Jeep is doing. If she's a weekend warrior, or you don't care about noise go with a MT. If she's your DD commuter I'd go with an AT. I like the KM2s for MT, & the TKO, or Duratrac for ATs, but that's just me.
Check out these Cooper tires. Only $172/33x12.5r15 tire, Super aggressive, low road noise, self-cleaning lugs. $20 cheaper then anything you listed. I've had the BFG AT and wasn't really that impressed, they are loud and suck in the mud. My girlfriends brother is running the Nitto trail grapplers 37s on his F350, its a nice tire just way to expensive and wears down pretty quick. He only has about 24000 miles on them an they need replacing by the end of this year.
'Cuz im Mr. OOGIE BOOGIE and you ain't going NO WHERE.
I'm looking for some new rubber also. I'm sticking with stock and was leaning towards the duratrac's, trying to convince myself to spend that much. It's mainly a weekend warrior but want the option to take it through the woods, snow and mud.
Will the 31X10.50R15 or 235/75R15 Duratrac's fit on my stock 97 Sahara's rims or are they too wide/big?
Just got my Duratracs mounted today, not noisy, very agressive looking. Very happy with the ride. Goodyear has an 80.00 rebate going on right now too.
I missed the rebate when I bought mine, but I'm happy with them. I was surprised by how quite they were and they do look good.
If you purchase them from a discount tire store, be sure to mention that you are a member here. They give a $50 discount on 4 tire purchases to forum members. When I mentioned it, the guy hadn't heard of WF, but happily gave me the discount anyway. He said that they do their best to keep the forums happy because word of mouth is huge among forum members

If you're considering the Goodyear options, look into the Silent Armors- I love mine and love the 50,000mi warranty just as much. They have kevlar in them, are winter rated, and have served me well from Moab, to snowstorms in Denver, to thousands of quiet highway miles. They also have a better rebate than the Duratracs at the moment. Just my $.02.
