New tires
 
Hey, everybody. I'm about to buy some new tries. Right now, I'm looking at the Toyo Open Country M/T, the Pro Comp X-Terrain, and the Pro Comp Xtreme Terrain M/T 2. Does anybody have any experience or knowledge on these tires? Which last the longest? which perform the best? Is there one that I should just avoid at all costs? Is there one that is just like the best tire ever? I'm getting them in 33x12.5 R15. Please help me. Any advice would appreciated. Thanks!

When I bought my Jeep a couple of years ago it had ProComp M/Ts on it on it. Good looking tires but they were hard as rocks. They were extremely noisy on the road and I'd chip pieces off while rock crawling.
It was like night and day when I switched to the Duratracs I have now.

Okay, how do the duratracs a perform? What do you do with your jeep? More mudding or crawling?

I love 'em :thumb:

When I first started researching new tires, I found that allot of forum members rave about their Duratracs. I figured it was hype and I wanted more opinions so I kept looking. My search kept bringing me back to Duratracs, so I decided to pull the trigger.

There are better mud tires, better rock climbing tires and better street tires, but I've found these to bethe best all around tires. My rig's my daily driver but I take it off road as much as I can. I run through mud (never gotten stuck) but mostly I rock climb (super traction especially when aired-down). They are supposed to do very well in the snow, but here in southern Arizona, I haven't had a chance to check it out. Basically in my opinion, they are the best all-around tire on the market.

I purchased them through Discount tire and got several discounts:
> They knocked $50 off the set when I told them I was a Wrangler Forum member
> I got a $100 discount on the set for my tread lightly membership
> They happened to be giving away a $60 rebate at the time.

I went with the Duratracs. Bought 5 of them. I love them. Very smooth ride and perform like a dream off road. Not to mention they look badass for an AT tire. Thanks for the recommendation!
