tire recommenadations?
 
Looking for any advice on what everybody thinks about tire brands/models. Currently running BF Goodrich All Terrains (33X12.5) and its time for new tires. Don't do a lot of "crawlin" or "muddin" just normal trail riding in Colorado. My '01 Sport is also my daily driver so they need to handle highway also. Any imput greatly appreciated!!

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

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

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.

+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!

are/were you a Marine? Same advise I heard growing up

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...

I run bfg km2 33's 150 miles a day, they are great.

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

I ran Goodyear Wrangler Authority's on my last Jeep and loved them. I just put 4 of them on my "new" Jeep, replacing goodyear MT/R's . The MT/R's were down to the bare minimum, and really had a lot of road noise.

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.

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.

nope.. like the general graber at2 they are a middle of the road all terrain. Great on the road and on snowy streets and ok offroad.. Little noise from the destination AT2's

I have the duratracs! They are good don't get me wrong. But I wish I would have spent ten dollars more per tire and bought the Toyo MT's they are freaking awesome in every way! They wear good, look good, and extremely quiet for a mud tire. Please buy them haha definately my next tire! In a 37" haha sexy!

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

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.

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.

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.
