Tire advice

Hi all,

I have a stock JK. I am mostly concerned with on-road performance although I drive enough dirt/gravel roads and do some light off roading (no real rock climbing or mudding) that I want something that won't just be on-road optimized. I liked the tires that came on the Wrangler - Goodyear Wrangler SRA's. I was looking at Cooper Discoverer AT/3's as well. Any preference between the two? Last, I was recommended Nitto Terra Grappler's. Anyone have any experience with those? I'm totally unfamiliar with them. Ultimately I want a tire that will work well on road and won't suck on gravel and dirt. I don't want to get into tire spacers or anything, just want to put new tires on. I can't really decide between the three tires listed. Thanks!

I recommend Toyo AT2, BFG KO2's, Discoverer AT3, and Duratracs in that order.

Toyo's have the 45 day trial. If you don't like them, you can switch them out at no cost (other than price difference for a different tire). Its very well behaved on road and is very suited for your needs (dirt/gravel) and then some.

Terra Grapplers are good tires. I run the DuraTracs on my 4Runner because it is my winter vehicle and while I use it all year, they may be a bit too aggressive for you. They are slightly louder than regular ATs. The AT2s and KO2s looks good too though. Maybe check the weights and rating (P/C/D/E). I stick with C for offroad tires and Passenger rating for my 4Runner, though I'd do C there as well. IMO, your best choices have been mentioned here. Between the Coopers and Nittos, I'd go with the Nittos easily.
