Help me find some boring tires.

2012 JKU w/ 20k miles and the stock Wrangler SRA tires. They're pretty sucky in the water and they've gotten hard.

I'm on the stock 17 inch wheels. Looking for a nice all season tire. Will never see real offroad mud/rock.

The Cooper at3 is a great street only tire.

Toyo at2 or bfg ko2 are good choices too.

Cooper Discoverer H/T
A little less expensive than the AT3 and a bit quieter on the road.

If you're trying to save a few bucks:

• Mastercraft Courser AXT with promo going on to save $60 on 4 until Nov 15
• Cooper AT3 with promo to save $70 on 4 until Oct 31
• Goodyear Duratrac - these are more on/off road but they also have promo going on to save up to $120 on 4 going on until Dec 31
• General Grabber AT2 - nice looking AT tire and cheaper then BFGs
• BFG AT KO2 - great tire but probably the most expensive out of the list

I can tell you if you want something comparable in size to a 255/70-17 then get either a cooper at3 or bfg ko2 in 275/70-17 and they will only be slightly bigger and look a little better.

I can tell you from experience that an at3 in 270/70-17 will ride better be quiet and you will not loose one 10th of a mpg. Thru DTD they are about as cheap as a tire as you can get and will last 60,000 miles, but I understand if you don't want them. lots of good choices and all of them will be better than what came stock.

they also come in 265/70-17 which would be so close to the same size as coopers run small. search ebay or dtd probably about $125 a pop. and they are boring so......

never having either, IMHO the goodyear will look better, but the cooper will do better on road.

If you're going to buy Duratracs, check with Sam's club, if you have one local. I just got a quote for 5 Duratracs for $840.80 plus tax installed.

Got the Firestone Destination AT's installed. Hate them. They roll like an egg. They are quiet... and don't really feel unbalanced but it's like the whole vehicle is bouncing around. Fine around town but above 50 it's really noticeable... if the jeep rode like this when I first test drove it, I wouldn't have purchased it.

Thank goodness they have a 30-day money back on these.

Seems to me that others never suggested that tire :P


... for a reason
