Advice on Tires

Hi everybody, I'm new here and I'm looking for advice.

I bought a 95' Wrangler a few months ago, and I am thinking about getting new tires for it. I hardly ever go off road, so I'm looking for something maybe all-terrain or strictly for city use. I get a small amount of snow and ice here, and I would like something to handle that as well.

Any suggestions?

Thanking you in advance.

BFG AT's will outlast just about any other AT tire on pavment with great tread life.
A few FACTS:
Rectangle headlights ARE kinda cool.
YJ does NOT stand for "Yuppie Jeep".
Jeeps should only have TWO doors.
You should ALWAYS wave at other JEEP drivers.

You will find that everyone here is somewhat sold on one brand or another. I've been running the Goodyear Duratracs for over a year and I love the way they handle on the road and off. The best thing for you to do is narrow it down to a few favorites and then read all the reviews.
