I have BFG KO2's that are C rated on my JKUR now. I've ran Goodyear Duratrac's in the past and were happy with them as well...

I'm running 295/70R17 Cooper ST Maxx. I've got about 35k miles on them and they look to have at least 35k left in them. They are load E and I run about 28 psi. They don't seem overly harsh to me. They are heavy suckers, though.

BFG KO2s.

The only negative I have about these tires is they tend to run small, like most BFGs. 37in measured close to 35in rolling diameter.

BFG KO2s in 285/70/17 and a C load rating. Light enough to hang on the stock spare tire carrier, and good combo of street/off-road performance.

When my stock tires go, soon, I'll be getting Nitto Ridge Grapplers in 285/75.

I also have the BFG KO2's.
As mentioned, they do run small. I took that into account when I picked the size I want to run, buying them a size bigger to end up around the size I wanted.

Another vote for Cooper ST-Maxx. This is my second set.

In the past I've run BFGs (wore FAST on the Power Wagon), Cooper ST, Goodyear MTR/Kevlar (which is a hybrid AT/MT similar to the Maxx), General AT2 (sucks), and Toyo AT2 Xtreme (second favorite).

I think the Maxx is the best all-arounder there is.

BFG KO2 34x10.5. They run small as others mentioned, but other than that I like them and will buy them again.

I have a set of BF Goodrich T/A KO2 LT315/70R17 (58424). I don't have a ton of miles on them, but so far I've been happy.

BFG KO2s 315/70/R17.
Have they been mentioned yet?
I have 50K miles on them, likely good for another 30K.

I am running the Ridge Grapplers in 285/75 and have really liked them so far. I couldn't decide between those and the ST Maxx. Ended up getting a better price for the Grapplers, so I went with those.

Mt atz p3

I have the MT ATZ P3's. They are a more of a hybrid tire. They have been fantastic so far. I've run DuraTracs, Coopers and BFG's in the past. I liked the DuraTracs until I had a sidewall let go after a trip in Colorado.

I had KO2S on my 16, and Falken AT3s on my current 18 JLU. And teetered on Coopers. We have the newly designed AT3 on our Grand Cherokee. I liked both the KO2 and AT3, bit I want Coopers next.

Just get the K02s in any size. Best all terrain tire on the market.

Smooth ride at 29psi, looks great, durable, and great offroad. And they don't throw rocks up my doors with my narrow fender flares, like other tires I've had.

all terrain tires

Duratracs are the only A/T I will run because I use them all year round in snow, mud, dirt and rock. Mostly forest roads and trails.
When I want more aggressive I’ll put the Pitbulls on.

Duratracs - they have been great, my driving is 90% improved roads, but they've been good off road when hunting (nothing all that challenging) and good in our snowy/icy winters as well. Just put a new set on early winter (probably could have waited another year, but with the winter we had, glad I didn't wait).

I have mostly stuck with BFG ATs (KOs and then KO2s) with every truck I've owned. 98 Ford Ranger, 2010 F150, and now the JKU. IMO they're the best light truck tire around. One of the reasons I picked the specific JKU that I did is because the cold weather package came with KO2s already and not the stock all season tires.

The KOs I had on my Ranger and F150 easily went 60-70K miles.

Falken Wildpeak AT3W in 285/75R17 in load range E. They are great in the snow and ice (Mountain Snowflake) and great on the rocky trails here in ID.

I previously ran Duratracs in the winter and BFG MTs in the summer.

The Falkens are as good as the Duratracs in the winter. They are quieter than the MTs and have done just as well on the trails I go on. I am not into mudding although I do run trails in the rain

I've had good luck with BFG ATs over several generations. I really like the Duratracs as well.

No direct experience with other AT tires to speak of.

I have been looking into this tire size ever since I finished my 2.5" lift. Have you measured their mounted dimensions?

Had very good experiences in the past with KO2's. Much quieter on the road than my MT and good ride as well. Just got a new set on my '17 (285/75/r16) that were a major pain to balance out, but after road force balance I'm happy with them.

I also run Duratrac's. Mainly on road, but in Michigan it *occasionally* snows and they perform well.

Already have them and love them. Not much noise and seem to be wearing well.

I think what you should look at is where you'll be offloading.

I live in Michigan and we have a lot of snow, mud and sand. Not much for rocks, at least where I go.

For that reason I went with the Duratracs. I feel the Duratracs are better in those circumstances. If I lived out west or in a place I encountered more rocks, I would have went with the KO2s.

The KO2 vs Duratrac debate seems to be like choosing between Coke and Pepsi I don't think you can go really wrong with either..

(I have Duratracs for what it's worth. We can get quite a bit of snow where I am... I like 'em).

Duratracs don't hold up out west... The sidewall is too soft and they puncture very easily.

I'm a big fan of the Ridge Grapplers, but also like the Falken AT3W. I will put the Falkens on my Frontier soon.

I have always had googly eyes for BFG's with raised white letters on Jeeps, so when I got my Jeep it was predetermined what tires I was going to run.
