Question Tire Recommendation.......

I just bought my 2003 Jeep Rubicon last week and know that I will need new tires soon.

With that said I would like some recommendations as to what are the best all arounnd tires. I live in Tallahassee, FL and the sand and clay are quite common. I will also be driving to the beach a lot this summer.

Basically I am looking for the best all around tire. I currently have 33"x12.5's on the MT rims.

Thanks in advance for the help.

For All-terrain: Nitto TeraGrapplers - they are an awesome all-terrain tire, VERY cost effective - come in ALL sizes.

For Off-road: BFG KM2, these are the best off-road tire that still has decent on-road mileage.

i read they are supposed to get around 40,000 but i'm not really sure about that. you can actually get a pretty good deal on them at jcwhitney. after you get them in your cart, put in the code: bawlax9 and it takes 20% off. that's what i did, and it worked out to be $158.39 per tire plus shipping. just some info i thought you might find usefull.

Bought the BFG M/T's. Used but still have a lot of tread. Got 'em for a steal. Thanks a lot to all.
