I was curious as to what type/brand/size tires folks were running for the trails in GA. I am in the process of getting a Savvy Currie 4" lift installed with a 1.25 BL and will be in the market for some new tires. SYE/Driveshaft done too. Understanding that I may need a re gear for a 35" tire I was planning on re gearing for more power as I hate losing power going up hill on the interstate.
Alright, so far we have - 2 Goodyear MTR, 2 KM2, 1 STT, and 1 open country. So pretty much any of these tires are good for the driving conditions and trails found in GA? I do plan on coming on some of these group rides as soon as my Jeep is put together. Total newb when I bought my Jeep and will be a newb on the trails as well. I wanted to have something that was built up enough to go out and have some fun on the trails and since my Jeep originally came with a 3" Body Lift I was saving up funds to remove it and install a good off road capable lift.
I actually like a little road noise, hell you're in a jeep not a f-n Mercedes!

I love hearing the sound of my tires and feeling them underneath me. Kinda lets u feel exactly what's goin on. I agree, its a Jeep...I want it to drive like a Jeep. But everyone has their thing. I'm runnin Toyo Open Country M/Ts too. 37s...and I love them. The tread wear is amazing, they throw mud like candy off a float at a parade. Self cleaning is an understatement. Have passengers roll their windows down and haul butt, funniest thing ever, I do it to my kids all the time. I had a screw in one of the tires...it fell out, can't even find the hole, the tread is self healing, lol. Had someone stab my tires, the sidewalls are so well reinforced took over 24 hours for the air to let out while holding up my baby to get insurance to roll on repairs. Awsome tires, mean lookin too.
