So I've been waiting for my tires to wear out before I bump up to 31's. There are so many tires to choose from, I want to get good tires but I don't want to pay a rediculous amount. I was considering the Dunlap radial mud, or something simal. Any ideas, I plan on a decent amount of trail use but it's also my daily driver
as a daily driver, i strongly recommend the Falken Rocky Mountain ATS's
I've got them on my DD which is also my weekend offroader and they do amazing for both. They're also very quiet for an AT tire which for me is a huge plus...our vehicles are already loud enough without a noisy tire.
I'm currently running a set of 32x11.5's and am going to be going to a 35x12.5 but still going to run the Rocky Mountain because its been such a nice tire. My 32's only have 8k on them but thats more than enough to put the tire through its paces!
How is the tread wear, because I currently drive 30 miles each way to school, but I found a set of Bridgestone douler at revo 2 of $400 on Craigslist but I wanted something more aggressive looking. Also in what lift do you have, I love the look, and you have 32's in the picture
Tread wear is actually really nice on them...rated to 50k
mine still look new and yeah, those are 32's in the picture. That was taken a few weeks ago and i've changed it quite a bit since then but i was running a 3" suspension lift with a 1.25" body lift in the pic.
I'll send you a pic of my jeep with just a 3" suspension lift and 32's though so you can get an idea...they fit great on there.
I cant hate ont he duelers though, i had a set on my last vehicle and they were nice tires...the rocky mountain is a bit more aggressive of a tire though and has better performance than the duelers did
I'm currently running a 3" suspension lift (got 3.75" out of it), 1.25" body lift, 1" mml with no tcase drop, tube fenders in front, and flat rear flares now...so i'll be doing 35's as soon as possible. If you havent bought tires already, i'll shoot you a message when i'm letting mine go...
Up homie I've been through alot of different nobbies for the jeep if you want a sick ass off road tire that doesn't get trashed by comuting at a good price definatly check out the maxis big Horn I was commuting hours every day best multiple purpose I found definatly
my jeep currently has the definity dakota at's and they have a little over 50k miles on them, i was surprised by this so i am looking at another set of definity tires, they have a mud terrain tire that has the same tread pattern as the discover stt and is $673 installed. the only bad thing is online one forum says they have a 2 ply sidewall. I have no idea hot true this is but any opinions on that, because i am a broke college student.
from my studies I have narrowed good tires for pavement and offroad to a few selections.
nitto trail grappler (front runner)
falken wild peaks (seen these do amazing things and drive home smooth as silk)
red letter generals (limited sizes but those with them love them)
goodyear mtrs (ongoing debate on these and I have run them)
BFG allterains (old stand by, but better options)
Im pretty sure im going to go with the falken rocky mountain, but whats the difference between them and the hankook dynapro atm. the guys at discount said they are the same as the rocky mountains but the rocky mountains had some weird ware bar that decreased traction when you hit like half tread, therefore making the hankook dynapro atm better.... any one have opinions on the hankook dynapro atm
I ran the Hankooks on my old Durango. Had them for about 3 years and 40k miles. I drive 35 miles to work on the highway, and ran the trails on the weekends. Never had a problem with the tires and even after 40k the tread was in good shape. I didn't measure the depth before I sold the rig but I would have run them another year or two...
Held up well and performed well on and off the highway. Not sure about road noise though as the Durango was well sealed and outside noise didn't creep in.
