So far, I put approx. 5K miles on them and have experienced no excessive wear or performance issues. I can measure the tread depth and re-post the wear if you're really interested.
The TSL radials are an improved design for on-road use over their bias-ply design that they offer. I've had both and can honestly say they are much better in handling and noise reduction, especially in wet road conditions....far superior to bias ply.
The old school bias ply super swampers do wear like a dragster tire, but then again bias ply tires should be used for off-road applications only.
Honestly, I really like them and I'm glad I bought them. When these get trashed, I will upgrade them to 35" x 12.5".... The bug has bitten me bad!....need to go higher!
I will try again to post some pictures next week.

As with most things Jeep, the devil is in the details! Somebody said already that 31's about as big as you can go without a lift, and if you look around for awhile, you should be able to find some 31's that somebody took off a Sport or Sahara with some decent tread left for somewhere between $500-1000. Depends on the miles left and watch the condition of the wheels! Aluminum wheels can get crappy looking if they aren't kept clean, which is why I run steelies, but for a first upgrade, you could do worse that just upgrading to some t/o's. Also, depending on what you have now, you might be able to get a little lift by upgrading just the springs to Sport or Rubicon springs, esp. if you are running a 4cyl.!

Depending on your gear ratio I wouldn't go higher than 33s. If the jeep came with anything smaller than a 30"tire my guess is that it has 307s or 354s. If it came with the 3.73s 33s would be fine.

|tobycat1||I'm 17, and going into college next year. I run 33" Toyo muds on my DD( and I'm on road 95-97% of the time as well).|

|Brian V||33's on my DD...|

I've got 33s and a 4" lift on my DD. Handles good on pavement and off road. I have a blast with it but mpg does suffer some.
The way I look at it is, if I wanted to be really practical, I'd still have my Kia Spectra.
|08-19-2007 10:19 PM|
college kid.. if you have no lift get 31 in mud terrain, with black steelies that stick out a bit..
I got 32 with stock wheels with a 2'' BB.. it is practical but gas will drop.. suck with stock gearing going 70 mph..
with no lift the max you can go is 31'' without rubbing..
33'' you need more clearance and regear to be a daily driver.. 2'' bb might rub depending on tires..
and yes the larger tires the less mpg you get I get about 12-13 mpg..
I was in college and I know money is tight if you pay for your own tuition.. I did and I would not even get a wrangler due to bad mpg... I still can barely afford driving this thing now..

|Triple88a||JeepRock.. i think its because you are re-geared for 36s.. From memory 4.56 was good for 35s|
|08-19-2007 10:09 PM|
|drummerwookie||i would say you wouldnt want anything larger then a 33 for a daily driver, but 31s are probably the best all around tire size to get|
|08-19-2007 10:00 PM|
|JeepRocks86||mine came with 30s stock. NOw i'm running 35" AT's. my MPG went up when I went from my 33s to my 35s. the speedo was recalculated too.|

|debruins||yeah ive been looking for 34's but it just doesnt seem worth it, its like $20 more expensive per a tire to get 34's instead of 35's|
|08-19-2007 09:30 PM|
33's for a daily drivers work for me.

You can get a set of new BFG AT KO 31x10.5 from discount tire for about $117 each. (the list about $135 but I was suprised when they started wheeling/dealing on them - they basically waived all the disposal and misc fees that got it down to the $117). The BFG AT's are rated at 50K miles. From the looks of mine after 10K, I believe it. I haven't even lost 1/32 off them.
But still wish I'd gotten 32's!

4 brand new goodyear mud terrains on rubicon wheels will run about $1500, and I got them for $500 slightly used.

|Jerry Bransford||I've got at least 100K miles on 35" tires on my daily driver TJ, I'll go to 37" tires once I can install a beefier front axle.|
