Tire Time

I have a stock 04 Unlimited, and it's time for new tires. Most of my driving is highway miles, with occasional trips through the family farm trails-nothing extreme. Have narrowed my choices to Firestone Destination A/T, or BFG AT/KO. Size 31x1050x15. What's the better choice & why? Thanks

Not speaking from experience, I like the bfg's more. I have a couple of buddies that run them and like them.

i will be trying the goodyear wrangler duratrac for my jeep this year. its is a brand new tire.

Goodyear Tires | SUV and Truck Tires | Wrangler DuraTrac

goodyear designed this tire to compete with the BFG at ko. it is a little more aggressive, about the same price, they only have 3 sizes in the 15 inch rims though. i will be getting the 31's.

BFG if you are going to do any off roading. The Destination A/T is a little better in the snow IMHO. Forget about the Goodyear junk...
