Best Highway Tires

Hi, I just picked up a 2002 Wrangler Sahara and it has Goodyear MT/R
30 950 r15 tires on it. These are terrible on the road and are brand new.
I will not be going off road so am looking for a great highway, everyday driving tire with a very smooth ride. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks!

Assuming the 15" wheels-I would get BFG all terrains 29"s. If I remember correctly there are not a lot of "street" type tires that will fit the Jeep wheels-check with a tire store for sure. (I think that was my stock tire size) May be able to get like a truck /passenger tire that would be smoother. However, also realize since you have that type of tire for highway and long wear mileage, it is not going to be near as good as an A/T in the winter time.

I have been "running" the Bfg A/Ts for several sets-get about 50K miles per set. I rotate each time oil is changed. They are the ideal tire for me so far-not very loud and good highway/and winter driving. But give me the traction I need to get to the rivers to Kayak.

Hope This Helps
