bflank The pitiful OEM tires are why we made a new set of BFG AT-KM tires part of our purchase deal. Not too noisy on road, decent traction on wet roads, and pretty good in mud.

LOL. My Unlimited came with the same tires and I was just messing around in the rain today. I was bummed that I couldn't get the Jeep to fishtail on a tight corner with lots of gas.

Having owned a Jeep previous to this 08, I didn't expect much in the way of cornering but this is worse than I anticipated. If I want to scream around corners I fire up my RX-8.

Badfish im sure you have seen BFGoodwrich all terrains. personaly im a big fan of them they have been on our 88 suzuki samurai forever cause like these new jeep the stock ones where pathetic. i love them on the road minimal noise and vibration great road manners. on the trail, or out in the desert where i mostly offroad, they were pretty much unstoppable only deep sand was your enemy but other than that i took it all the places the jeeps were goin. they are pretty cheap i too. i think pepboys still has their buy 3 get the 4th tire free and im pretty sure you can get bfg all terrains there. just a thought

iamagolfspaz All ive heard is good things about the Dura Trac. And the price is very good.

JDsDream Depends on where you're going. Daily driver or strictly offroad. I've had the Dura-Trac for about 3 months and what a difference they make. Mines a daily driver and some light offroad (trails and mud puddles), but the handling and traction is great. They clean out pretty easy and I like the fact that they have an agressive appearance and good road manners

Hilldweller My Sahara came with Bridgestone Duelers and I chucked them at 4,400 miles for similar reasons.

I tried General Grabber AT2's; I would not recommend them to anybody.

I'm running Goodyear MTR w/Kevlar right now and they stick to wet roads and handle mucky trails better than anything I've ever used before. Wonderful tire but I don't expect stellar treadlife.

Also new with the same rubber compound: Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac and Dunlop Radial Mud Rover Maxx Traction.
