SirGeorgeKillian Good and cheap don't usually work well together on tires.

Arch Stanton I got a great deal with a coupon code from JC Whitney on some 31" Mickey Thompson MTZ tires. There is also a $100 rebate on a set of four of these tires.

DevilDogDoc https://treadwright.com/p-77-315-75r...dog-m-t-d.aspx on here it shows $152 a piece plus 25 shipping to me so 175 x4 is 700 plus mount and balance. 2 year 24000 mile warranty and 19/32 of tread to start. Not too shabby.

Atthehop I have over 100k on my 30x9.5 BFG AT's. Going with them again very soon. They are worth every cent.

They take a tire that is worn down on the tread (but the carcass is still in good condition) and recap the tire with new tread. Similar process to how they would do it for semi tires but it's a better process. I bought one tire from them for my spare. I can't vouch for a set of four but I've seen them used in a couple of my off-road magazines.

jrussblues Bfg km2...good on road, great off road, moderately priced but will wear well also. (I can't wait to see the replies, this group is passionate about their rubber)

MateJoe Don't get buckshots. The ones I had were awful. They aged poorly, were super loud and were downright terrifying in wet weather. They threw some mud, no doubt. But honestly? Is that small price difference between a good set of mud terrains and the buckshots really worth plowing into an electric pole because you hit a puddle doing over 30 mph?

My recommendation are the BFG All Terrains. They aren't as good in mud. But they are awesome on every other surface, are quiet, wear well and more affordable. Currently running a set of Goodyear Wrangler mud terrains that I love though.

PortMcNeillJeep Anyone try "GTRadial" branded tires?

I just wouldn't be a fan. I rather get a decent tire that will hold it's own on the trail, but still last on the road. Unless you spend your time boggin thru deep mud, I don't see the need for two different sets of tires. It's personal preference though

DevilDogDoc I have about 30000 on my Treadwrights with no complaints at all. Handle road, trails, mud, rain with no issues. About half worn so far.

This sounds like a PITA...I would hate to have to swap wheels every time I wanted to wheel. Also, what happens when you have to make a bit of a commute to your trail...now you are burnin up your "offroad" tires.

I know a few guys that run them and they seem to be pleased with the performance

fourty4magjr General grabber at2 is a nice tire but it's not an mt tire but they work really good for the casual off roader. My dad has them on his truck and we've had them in some nasty stuff and haven't let him down yet and his came with a 50,000 mile warranty! So they last if you rotate them when your supposed too. that's just my opinion

renteria71 I might consider those when I finally do need tires, Ill prolly buy new ones right before winter comes round, these ones still have quite a lot of tread left on them
09-22-2011 10:34 PM
snwchris Yea those Federals hooked up nice when I was running them.... rocks and mud, no problem and could air them down to about 8-10psi and great grip

The PO had just put new ones on when I bought the jeep. So far so good, and a great looking tire, IMO.

renteria71 I looked at them, those r pretty nice tires for the price

renteria71 I have been wanting new wheels anyways, because the rubicon rims need to be re-powder coated and I would rather just buy new ones, so now im guessing I should go with the 15's

Seems to be the better choice

he's just saying that the tires for 16in wheels are more expensive then the ones for a 15in rim by in most cases a decent amount. Tires for a 16in rim are also heavier in comparable sizes

In most cases they tend to be more expensive...thats all lol Ive got 35" GY kevlars on my jeep on 35s and they ran me about 250 a piece mounted and balanced from a local shop.

Just as an example the GY kevlars in 35s from discounttire.com cost 206 per tire for 15s...and 290 per tire for 16s (not including the cost of mount and balance)
