For a daily driver....
 
What are some great all-terrain tires? I'm kind of mixed up with all the different product descriptions and need some real information from people who know their stuff.

I really like General Tire Grabbers (how do they do on the road), Goodyear Duratrac, and BF Goodrich. I have TSL Swampers (bought with the Jeep) and don't want to burn out all the tread.

Oh, does anyone know about TreadWright??? I was on their website and am very skeptical about their products. $65 a tire?!?!?!?!

I have 33" BFG all terrains on my CJ7. They are just now showing need of replacing and I bought them in 2004. My jeep is my daily driver and my off road toy, so these tires have seen plenty of pavement, sand & rock. I plan on replacing them with another set of BFG ATs.

Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor. Tough as nails and great performance. I'm pricing some to go on mine right now.

Treadwright sells recaps. That's why they're so cheap. IIRC, someone said on here once that they're only recommended for 40k miles.

What are you looking for in a tire and how do you use your jeep? Also, what size?

I drive to work four to five times a week but like to mess around when I can. Keep in mind I live in Nebraska so I'm limited as far as "fun" goes, haha. I want something that won't lose tread very fast and I want 33x12.5 on 15's.

The Duratrac may be a great option for you. They are rated for severe winter conditions, they have an aggressive tread pattern and I've seen plenty of reviews from Jeep owners claiming high miles on them. (There is also a $40.00 mail in rebate on this tire right now)

Here's a link to the Duratrac and other options. Check out the reviews:

+1. At the time I bought mine, I got a bigger rebate on the Silent Armor's than was available on the Duratracs, and got a better initial price.

Also, check Tread Lightly and see if they're still giving a rebate for tires. I got a $100 rebate after joining for $25.

BF GOODRICH ATs are great. Long tread life and not loud on the road. Look better than the silent armor, to me at least. Look more aggresive than the wranglers. Gonna put another set on in another month or two.

I'm really liking my Falken Wild Peak ATs. Can't speak too much for tread wear because I've only had them on for a couple hundred miles, but they're an amazing tire. Hooks up great off road, great in the rain, great on pavement (so great that when I was stupid enough to drop the clutch, my rear u joint snapped instead of the tires spinning), and they're very quiet and smooth on the road.

I recommend Discount Tire. Great prices, free shipping, amazing customer service!

I like the Falken Wild Peak/Rocky Mountains also. They have been great in sand, snow and on the road. Don't know about treadwear, yet. Had them for a couple thousand miles. They seem to be fairly quiet on the road, ride much smoother and work better in snow than my last set (Sport Kings).

Wow...those are nice....

I might go with Mickey Thompson MTZ, BFG KM2, and possibly Pitbull Rockers.

...I thought you were looking for an all-terrain? I wouldnt consider any of those all terrains...:whistling:

mtbrider 08-09-2011 09:22 AM

For the road, I can vouch for the terra grapplers. fwiw, mine doesn't see much off road yet. Still trying to find time to go have fun. Not sure of their capabilities off road.

33" BFG All Terrains. They are awesome tires. Never heard a bad thing about em

I was. :D But I decided that I would rather have some mean-ass looking tires with nasty tread. A guy I know runs MTZ's and said they perform great on the road. I already have Super Swampers (bought them on the Jeep) so I don't know if I can go without the rumble, I'm used to it now.
