What Tires would be good for my YJ?

Hey guys I just recently got a 1992 YJ and it came with 30" BFG's AT tires on 15" rims, and they have about 25% tread left. I am up for new tires soon in that case, so I was wondering what tires I should get. I am looking to see if I should go to 31s or any other opinions? I am going to be using it as a daily driver, so I do not want to kill the mpg dramatically. But, I also want to preform off road as well. What would you guys suggest without redoing to the gears or upgrading to a stronger axle?

I also have the 2.5L and a 2" body lift.

If you can afford them to you won't be disappointed with the bfg at tires. I've never had them on a jeep but I've ran them on different trucks for years. The big disadvantages are they're expensive and they're not a great mud tire. Great on road and mild riding

I'd stick with the BFG AT KO, stick with 30" if MPG is a big thing, maybe go a little wider. 31's will only give you 1/2 inch more ground clearance. Of course I'm one to talk, I'm running 35x12.5x15 Goodyear MTR Kevlars.

I picked up some copper discovery blemished tires. 31x10.5s for a great price. Have been great.

If you mostly drive it on the road, go with all terrains. I really wouldn't go bigger than 30" or 31" with the 2.5. I have mine re-geared to 4.88 just to be drivable with the 33's I have.

Another vote for the BFGs I ran a set of 35s on my old XJ for a while, I also like the Goodyear Duratracs.

30s and 31s are a pretty common size to find on Craigslist in my area. You might be able to find a good, used set. And I'm happy with my 32" BFG ATs. It's quiet and is versatile on/off road. It doesn't look as aggressive as other tires like the Goodyear Duratrac.

I just got a set of 5 one year old 33" BFG AT's. The spare has never been on the ground. I paid $550 mounted for all, then I paid Discount Tire another $100 to lifetime balance them, and for a set of 5 wheel locks. The deals are out there.

The mileage you will get with BFG's is pretty hard to beat.

If you want something that is solely used on the street, Grabber HTS gets better reviews than tires that are 3x's as much and they are made right here in the good ol' US of A

IMHO most people are not honest with themselves about there needs when it comes to tires and will buy what looks badass on their rig.

Determining where you are going to spend the majority of your time, will help more than anything else, in what rubber to wrap your willy with.

I have had the Cooper At3's on my Jeep since last year. Good all around tire. No noticeable road noise yet good off road performance. Tire wear so far has been minimal. And they are made in the USA!!!

For mostly road driving with a bit of off-road, I'm liking the BFG Rugged Terrains. They're a little less aggressive than the ATs, but they handle well on the street, in the rain, in the snow and for mild off-the-beaten-path driving. I've not got them on a Jeep, but I run them on my Titan and on the wife's Trailblazer.

After seeing them and riding on them, my brother-in-law bought them for his Dodge Ram and my cousin bought them for his GMC Sierra.

I run 30x9.5 Big O Bigfoot X/Ts. They do well on or off road. Not too loud on the highway.

My father in law has these on his Tundra and my brother in law has them on his tacoma. I was impressed with them. Granted no off road testing.

On the YJ i have the 31x10.50 BFG A/Ts on stock suspension. I have rubbing on the leaf springs.
