Alright, so now that I know im good to go w/ 33" tires with the Dana 33 in the front and the Dana 44 in the back I am wanting to get some 285/75/R16's
These tires however only come in Load rang D (which I think would be perfect for sidewall strength off road). This is what I have on my Chevy 2500HD Diesel truck and they are awesome.
However, w/ Load Range D tires these things are ~50lbs each. Is that too much weight / tire for these jeeps? This will be a daily driver and the occasional weekend offroader. I know the good 'ol stand by is the BF Goodrich Radial T/A K/O tires. But they may be good for off road but suck for snow / water traction.
I was looking at 2 different tires both of which I have had on my trucks in the past.
Bridgestone Duler A/T Revos 17/32nd tread depth
D|ck Cepek Fun Country II's 20/32nd tread depth
(cross between an A/T and a M/T tire)
Has anybody had good / bad experience w/ these tires on road / off road w/ the Jeeps? They are both basically the same price @ ~$180/tire? Also should I stick w/ the 15" rims or go with 16x8's? I wanst sure if jeep was just being cheep w/ the 15" rims or if there was an actual purpose to it.
