What tires I decided to go with

I finally decided on a wheel and tire combo for my 2012 JK. After looking around for the last month and enduring all the crude comments from guys at work...it is coming to fruition soon. After calling around to multiple local dealers and websites....4wd.com had the best price on a Dick Cepek Extreme country 315/70/17. $195 each!! I didn't want to go overly expensive since I only put about 6-7 miles per year on my last TJ. Added some Pro Comp 7069's....and $1700 out the door. Not a bad deal IMO.

Wait... so you only drove the last Jeep 6-7 miles a year? Jeep looks great BTW, but I can't get past the 6-7 miles a year thing.

Not yet...there hasn’t been an issue on the blacktop...haven’t put it in the mud. I’ve had some friends tell me that regearing would be a good thing to do. It only has the 3.21 one....so we will see. It’s a rough country 3.25 lift.

Nice tires. I went with the same think on my JKU in 295-70-17 with 1 inch rear, 1.5 inch front lift. I did one run with the setup and it was much improved over the stock street tires.
