Tires? What is the best tire?

I currently have 2 good Goodyear Wrangler tires on the front and 2 not so hot on the rear. I am thinking of staying stock. But not sure. How does the 31s look on a non lifted Jeep with stock Rims. 2007 Wrangler Unlimited

If you need tires stat (no immediate funds for lift), I would say Cooper Adventurer AT3 in a 31x10.5x15.

If you have a little money to put 2" under you, I would say Cooper Adventurer AT3.

Background -- I went from the stock 30" Wrangler to a Duratrac 31" on stock springs. I was waiting for the lift kit to arrive, and the tires came first. Yes, there was a little rubbing, but it was definitely a GREAT tire and wasn't that much louder. Pretty meaty, great offroad, and really not bad on pavement. Then I got my 2" of freedom from Dirk in the form of the OME kit. Life-changer. 1.25" spacers behind the stock Canyons plus 2".

60k miles later, the Duratracs got pretty loud -- I was doing a 5-wheel rotation about every 9k instead of 6k and the Duratracs are really begging for the shorter interval. I swapped into the Coopers because I'm using mine for business travel more. Kept the "old" Duratracs for a friend for a project Comanche. See pic -- those Duratracs have 60+k on them. However, the road hum (again, because of my fault, not Goodyear) was getting to be too much. Also, might be an iPhone + angle thing, but the tires on my rack are exactly the same size as the new ones. Pretty sure the Duratracs measure a little wider, but they are both 31x10.5x15.

TLDR: The Coopers look aggro-enough, and are laugh-out-loud silent on the road. I was a huge fan of the Duratracs, but I'm a 100% convert to Cooper...even if these things only last 30-40k miles. Click image for larger version
