need some home on deciding
 
I know this isnt the tire and wheels section :hide: but I am not getting many answers there so I am hoping I get a little more attention here-
hey guys looking for some help with choosing a tire! Winter is slowly approaching and I know my 50 dollar CL bought tires need replacing. Basically i have narrowed it down to a few tires and I am wondering what will serve me best on the highway, in the snow and off road. I am looking something that will wear good. My jk is a DD but it sees a good share of all the off road elements. I really want a set of 33x12.5r17s because my 285/70r17s are just too narrow for my 9 inch wide wheels. I am looking at the Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ and the Dick Cepek Mud Countrys as a best fit. Also in the runnings are the General Grabber red letters (weight is major down side) and the Nokian Vatiiva M/T (anybody know anything? i need more info)... Also would maybe consider the National Chaparrel MTs but i cant find anything about them, so info would be nice if anyone even heard of them. Also I thought about the Dick Cepek FC-IIs but i dont think they are aggressive enough for me. So please help me out by sharing your vast knowledge guys! It is very much appreciated!!
Also added the Cooper STTs to that list

They are great tires but sadly they don't come in the size I want :( ........ if they did I would be getting them no questions asked

What about 305/70/17? Don't they come in that size? That's about 33x12.5.

You should look at the BGF AT KO too. That isn't as aggressive but they last a very long time

they do come in that size but I was worried about rubbing issues with my teraflex leveling kit since they measure about 34 inches... if they would fit good and i would have to do any mods because of the bigger size then i would be interested in them, would that size constitute any mods that a 35 inch tire would??
and i looked into them but i really am a sucker for the aggressive tires

They are good tires but they aren't aggressive enough and they don't come in the size I want, thanks anyway though!
