From deep South Texas!

Don't get much souther in Texas than me - I'm in Brownsville. I'll tell you what I'm going to do for very similar conditions - DD, some highway, and lots of dirt roads with mesquite, thorns, broken shells on the beach, etc. I don't want an MT - they're going to be a handful when it rains. I want something with siping. Looking hard at Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor 275/70-17. I'm hoping that sidewall is strong. I like the General Grabber red letters 'cause it has a 3 ply sidewall and is available in 265/70-17 - just doesn't have the siping. I had BF Goodrich AT on my old style Blazers, never did like them in the wet on the highway. That was a long time ago, they may have changed. My vehicle is 2011 JK 2 dr. and I wouldn't dare take it into the thorns with the stock SRA's.

My $.02. Hope this helps.

I'm with you on the durability but I heard the KOs aren't good in wet conditions.

Tires for south tx brush country and DD

If this has been answered point me to the place but here is the deal. Gonna be moving out to the ranch in the next month or two and I'm looking for a tire that will be able to handle the typical south tx mesquite branches, soft dirt, gravel, tall grass terrain. Gonna be doing some hunting, fishing, and working so I want to be able to go off the trail when I need to. At the same time it's going to be about 100 miles round trip for the commute to work. I would like to stay away from the A/T style and would be happy with 17-19 on the hwy, I don't have a lead foot either so I could maybe squeeze out a little more.

Don't want to go bigger than a 33

I've looked at MTRs, Duratracs, Fierce Attitudes, kuhmos

Or should I go with an AT?

I really wanted Trail Grapplers but that seems like too much weight

Ive got an 09 stock sahara unlimited will eventually throw on a leveling kit

Any recommendations or advice is appreciated
