Need Help w/ tires
 
I'm currently waiting on my 13' wrangler to be shipped to Virginia, and then I'm driving it up to Alaska (where i will be living for 3 years) When i get up there and settled in i plan on doing a 3 inch BDS lift. But with the snow, rain, crazy weather all year around. What kind of tires should i put on? I'm looking for 35's on 17 inch rims. Thanks in advance for any advice you have.

I didn't realize you could order a 2013 yet. Congrats

I would go with the Dick Cepek FCII's. They come in a 35x12.5/17. Excellent all around traction for a Aggressive AT and comes with a stronger sidewall then most AT's. Plenty of great options out there, but I would lean twoards these do to the ballance and strength they provide

Yeah i'm in the military so i purchased through the military car sales. I'm not picking it up until Jan, so they will probably start building mine around Oct, Nov. But yeah thanks for the reply, i saw the FCII's online earlier but had never heard of the brand, so i shied away. But i will definitely look into them, thanks

They are a Wheel and offroad tire company. Only make TMK 3 tires. Fairly common name in the offroad world

I'd go to the Alaska forum and ask that question. Might as well get good info from folks that live there.

I found this thread:

The kitty in your avatar looks really pleased about something. Just tortured a mouse to death? :)

OP, I agree with XJ. The man knows his tires.
