Tire brands

Hello everyone. I just bought my first Jeep a few months ago it a 2013 jku. I’m looking to upgrade the tires to 35’s. But I need some suggestions on tire brands that are good and the ones to avoid. I mainly drive on-road but do enjoy wheeling and will be spending sometime on the beach. Any info and suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you

Aside from stock I've run 3 brands of tires on my Jeeps, here's my opinion on those:
  • 315/70/17 Goodyear Duratracs- Lighter tire, great rain traction, great snow traction, good off road. A little too quiet IMO, I like a bit more hum.
  • 37x13.5x17 Toyo Open Country MT- Heavy but long lasting, it's been really good off road. Just enough hum for my taste, but not too noisy. I've put over 75k on these tires so far!
  • 37x12.5x17 Cooper STT Pro - Probably my favorite tire so far. Only a few thousand miles in but they've done great on the street and rain, haven't gone off road yet. Just the right amount of hum for me, and they look good.

Good luck in your quest!!

For mainly On-road with occasional off road, I would stay away from M/T tires.

I've had experience with Duratracs. Great tires at first. But after 20k miles, traction in rain and snow dropped more than I would expect. They are loud for an all terrain.

General Grabber AT2's are my favorite. I've had them in 285 and 35". Very quiet. great snow and rain even after 40k miles. Have had them on mild to moderate trails with no problems. Can't say enough about these tires.

Again other M/T tires I've used is not what I would recommend for your needs.
