Wyo Tigger 01 We are running Treadwright tires on our 64CJ-5 and our 01TJ Sport.
They offer several tread patterns and many sizes. They are recaps and we have had good luck with them.

The Authority's are probably the best all around tire I have ever used. They are good on the hiway (50,000 mile tire), very little road noise, and EXCELLENT in snow! They are exclusive to Walmart, so some will complain about that. They look like across between a Dura-trak and MT/R.
I have the same tire. I went on a "service road only" in Iowa right after 2 inches of rain. I didn't think it would be that bad. It was. I have driven this thing in inches of snow, like nothing. I love them.

It's hard to beat what you are running now for what you use your Jeep for. The BF's IMO are about the best all around tire.

They do look nice but weigh a lot more per tire. Also they dont have much siping so there isn't too much traction in the rain. My brother has a set on his truck and always seems to break them loose on wet pavement. Also him and his friends Toyos turned into slicks in the mud while I didn't get stuck. May not be a fair comparison but he has a lot more horsepower than me and should've been able to clean out the lugs

fourty4magjr General grabber at2s are pretty aggressive and the ones on my dads Durango have a 60000 tred life warranty but I think that depends on the size tire you buy his are 265 70 r17s and im pretty sure the 33s have a 50000 mile warranty. That's just my opinion if your looking for an aggressive at tire that will last.

InvertChaos I love my duratracs. I have yet to put them in a situation to get me stuck.

jrussblues I run bfg km2 33's 150 miles a day, they are great.
10-03-2011 06:10 PM
BFV Duratracs are awesome. I've been running 31X10.50's since early march and still can't tell if they have any wear. Plus, I haven't been stuck on the trail in mud, rocks, or water yet...

JBHGary are/were you a Marine? Same advise I heard growing up
10-03-2011 06:05 PM
Hammond_Egger +1 for the Duratracs...I just put on 31x10.5s two weeks ago. I do mostly highway driving, some trail/dirt road driving. These are also snowflake rated for snow!
10-03-2011 02:09 PM
MarkNog Im currently sitting on 31x10.50" wrangler duratracs and I love every aspect of em. They are quiet on the road and when you do hit the mud or the dirt, they just rip! If you google them, the reviews are stellar.

Redsand mt/r, its better to have an agressive tire and not need it than to need it and not have it

XJ Knight these are two of my favorite Agressive AT's. The ST's are the best AT you can buy on the market today that has a good amount of sizes available. The duratracs are a site favorite and popular in the Jeep community. Not sure wether you have intrest in MT's for your purposes. If so I'd be more then happy to list a few of those at the top of the great offroad and still good on road catagorey
