I'm getting new tires for my Jeep here soon, going to be getting 31x10.5r15 all terrains. I don't drive it every day, because I have a company vehicle for work, but it is my only personal errand and grocery vehicle and such so road manners are nice but not necessary. I'm having a hard time deciding on which ones to get, because I want something that does well off road, but that is affordable and will last. Me and some buddies are going up to nimblewill gap on the 15th and want something that can handle the likes of some semi serious trails but that I can decent tread life out of. I've pretty much narrowed it down to those two tires, but what would you all suggest? I'm going to be buying new wheels here soon too so some suggestions would be nice.

Look at the Hankook MT Dynapros
google mudtire shoot out.

Grabbers have good treadlife, but that's about it. Wouldn't reccomend for a Jeep.

If I were in the market for a set of A/T's for a Jeep it would be Falken Wildpeaks or Toyo AT2's. Nice soft tread, good ride, and pretty good traction for an A/T. I have personal experience with the Falkens but the Toyo's seem nice as well.

I'll definitely have to look into the Toyo AT2's, a coworker has the Wildpeaks on his XJ and loves them. Funny thing is I'm the one that suggested them to him because they were affordable and had a $100 rebate when 4 were bought at the time. What about Duratracs? I keep hearing those are great, but I'm not exactly sold on them yet.

Duratracs have good traction but tend to have a weak sidewalls.
I run Mickey Thompson MTZ's ...PHENOMENAL TIRE!

Have you any experience with Cooper Discoverer STT's? I found a pretty good deal on those I can get 5 for $770.

Not personally, however I've seen posts from other people that said they preferred the MTZ.... And they said they had run both tires! Online tires.com has the MTZ's (35's) Listed for $264.91 plus shipping. The vendor extreme terrain will match that price PLUS Give you free shipping!!

I had Cooper STT's, Good tire in the rocks. I DD'ed them for a while and they did good. Expect around 45k miles.

If your not doing much hard wheeling stick with a good set of A/Ts though.

That's what I wanted to hear. Thanks man, I think I'm gonna go with the STT's because 45k is right around what I was expecting/desiring, and I want something that's fully capable off road.

Also the $270 per tire is a little steep for me. I'm still looking to buy a winch and such too and I need new tires in the next month or two.

Make sure you check with the Vendors here on WF. I just ordered through Extreme Terrain and got a GREAT deal. Tires could be here as early as tomorrow!! Good luck whatever way you go!

$270 a tire? Yikes. My 35's are a little less then $200 a tire....

I will be paying about $770 for a set of five 31x10.5r15 Cooper Discoverer STT's. About $95 for shipping. So $880-900 overall. Can't complain about that. I got plenty of stuff in mind but tires are my priority right now!

That's not bad. What I did was take that online quote to discount tire and they beat it plus I didn't have to pay shipping.
