which tires 2004 unlimited stock

Live in Virginia-used in urban area-beltways etc-and country no real off road intentions

It's a toy for a stay young senior whose last Jeep was a CJj 7 1979 Renegade that I should have kept

going to 31 10.5 15

Checked out

BFG TA K0's

Goodyear Duratrack

Both of which seem not to good/just ok on wet roads -good article in 4 wheeler magazine as well as some reviews

Bridgestone Dueler Revo 2's which seem to have better siping design, tire compound and reviews, but no mileage warranty which is ok since most seem to get respectable service from the tires

Thanks for the input

I've had the duratracs for over a year now with no complaints. They handle the rain beautifully along with mud and even the occasional snow we get here. The tread is holding up better than I ever expected, hardly any tread loss at all, and the ride is smooth and quiet. Remember when reading reviews that you are going to hear more from the unsatisfied than the satisfied customers.

tires

Thanks for feedback Ms Georgia

Actually most of individual reviews on TireRack etc praise the Durtraks, but handling on wet roads does come up more so than on other tires--even seen some posts on the forum favoring the tires but not best on wet roads-guess thats why all cars arent painted gray-tires have different responses to drivers--still trying to figure, but really like the looks of the Duratraks-

Did u have 31 10.5 15 without any lift? noticeable difference from 30's?

Thanks

I too have and love the Duratracs, will be a year next month. No problems on or offroad with them, they handle rain, and snow and mud as well if not better than I expected... If you choose them, join Tread Lightly - Home and buy them before the end of the month for a $100 rebate, that can be used in conjunction with any Goodyear rebates...
