35's

Looking for some new tires to run, thinking A/T because it's my daily driver and I need something I can road trip in from Denver to Ouray, etc. I want to stick with the 35 inch size but don't want to go too nuts on price - anyboby running any they like a lot?

I ran the BFG AT's when I was on 33x12.50's and and I liked them a lot for an AT. but now I am running the Maxxis Creepy Crawler at 35x12.50 and the are holding up pretty well for a mud tire. I drove on them to Moab and to Ouray this past summer without any issues.
I personally wouldn't run a 35" AT for any reason because it just looks strange but that's just my opinion.

Nittos kind of own the market currently. Price and performance is top notch.

For a daily driver you really can't go wrong with Goodyear Duratracs. On the road they're just as quiet as the stock Rubicon tires. Obviously a strictly off-road tire will perform better on the trail but I have no complaints regarding the trail performance of my Duratracs. They only downside is they're pretty soft so they wear faster than any tire I've ever owned or seen. Oh yeah, I'd put them up against any tire on hard packed snow or ice over asphalt: Holy Freakin 35" DuraTracs!!!

Running Toyo atii. Have no complaints with these tires. They've seen their share of trails and have not disappointed. Plus they are great on the road. Here's a pic the tread, and an action shot from Moab

Anyone NOT change their gearing to support the larger tires? Concerned about automatic transmission not be able to hit 5th.

Thoughts?

I enjoy my 35/12.50/15 general red letter grabbers. I ran them on my Lj with stock 3:73 gearing and a 4 speed auto. It definitely was a little sluggish but I made the trip to ouray from Colorado Springs just fine. I have the option to turn overdrive off so that helped in the hilly areas. It wheeled just fine as some can vouch for.

Personally I run MT MTZ on my DD that has an off-road addiction.

Beastly for sure. Not only am I concerned about traction but overall wear over time as my jku is my dd.

Actually Sinister I wanted to run the MT TTC but they don't make them for 18" rims.
