Newbie tire question
Hey guys,

New JK owner here, got an 09 2door x about a week ago. I live in Denver, CO and like to go up to the mountains for skiing and other stuff. Question is, what is a good set of tires for snow driving (no wheelin' yet). I'm running GY SY-A's right now. This is my DD so I'm looking for something to get me around the city and also get me up to the mountains.

Advice appreciated.

Bridestone revos or firestone ATs are the 2 best tires I've personally run in the snow

People rave about duratracs here. Have you considered a snow tire tho? People sell the mopar steel rims for a dime a dozen on craigslist. You could always get a nice set of blizzacks mounted on their own set of rims so you can change them yourself. If you have 100-200 to spare for 5 steel rims that would probably be the best bet especially in colorado

Ya that might be my best bet is to go with the 5 steel rims with a set of snows. I still have a lot of tread left on my SR-A's anyway so it would be a waste to get rid of them at this point.

@KJ: :wavey:

The description on the Duratracs, though not specifically a snow tire, says they are great for winter driving. They also will accept studs.

I don't have a set (yet) so hopefully an owner can chime in.

Had them on my Tj fore awhile. The tire itself as hundreds of sipes which make it a great tire in snow and wet pavement.
