Looking to replace oem tires

Not happy with the look of the OEM tires, who is? Looked at some AMP A/T PRO tires today. Aggressive look and are 33" tires with a 60000 mile warranty @ $209 a tire. Size I'm looking at is a 285/75 17, trying to get by without a lift for now. They look awesome up against the Jeep. Is anyone running these and what is your impression of this tire? My Jeep is a daily driver, may do some off road but nothing too crazy.

I have no experience with Amp brand, but I can tell you for not much more per tire you can get tires that have great reviews and reputation. Looks at BFG KO2, Nitto Ridge or Trail Grappler, GY Duratrac.... etc.

I put on a set of JL Rubi take-off wheels and tires a few weeks back.
The new C-rated KO2's in 285/70 are just as quiet at the stock SRA's and ride nearly as nice on the freeway. They are only .65" taller than the stock 32's and only weigh 50 lbs a piece. For your intended use they might be worth a look. Highly recommend.

Got the BFG KO2 285/70 17, they have been on a week and couldn't be much happier. They are quite and look great. I kept the stock Freedom edition rims. But, when I make a hard right turn, the front left rubs. Will spacers rectify this?

I will replace my kms with either ridge Grapplers 255/80r17s or 285/75r17s. Haven't decided on which yet but probably leaning to the 255s to go with the Mopar 2 inch lift I already have sitting at work.

I love my Duratracs and would continue to buy them. Quiet on the road but yet still very aggressive looking. Good luck!

Ok so no one has answered your question since you got the new tires. So here you go... Turn your steering wheel to as far as it will go and go check under the front end. Most likely you will see it rubbing the front plastic air dam. Try same on the other side as well. You can use a Dremel and trim it off. Or take that piece off entirely if you would like.
