How are these tires on the pavement? Noisy, wear well, etc?

As others have mentioned, IMO they are out performing the other MT's in all categories.

Iím running the new Yokohama Geo MT G003 that were released last year. These are hands down the quietest mud tire Iíve ever had on the road. Itís quite amazing actually.

For a MT, they are great! A lot of MTís Iíve had feel slippery on wet pavement - these do not. They are wearing better and more even than any other MT Iíve seen or heard of. Very impressed! The light weight of this tire is another major advantage for a Jeep too.

https://tiresize.com/tires/BFGoodric...ain-TA-KO2.htm

From experience, I would recommend to avoid the idea of going with an 18in wheel. I originally went down that path and while I could find tires, finding a wheel I liked with proper back spacing, depth and bolt pattern in an 18in was challenging. Not to mention costs of the tires and wheels took a significant jump over a 17", where 17s are much more widely available and cost less, and you won't be able to tell the difference unless you're looking at it with a tape measure.

I'm with @ESP BFG AT "KO2", Duratrac, and Ridge Grappler are great options for a DD with aggressive looks. They should all cost below $300 ea, but the 18in version would push them closer to the high end of that target price. BF Goodrich is made by Michelin who are known for great on-road performance tires and were the ones I decided on, but the others are great as well.

Agreed. I would steer clear of 18s. Additional expense is not worth it.

Mastercraft MXT's Best Overall for my DD. Aggressive MT look with A/T ride and sound. This is coming from a guy who always used the Nitto Terra Grapplers (discontinued, now G2's) then the Ridge Grapplers in the past.

We have, and like the Cooper ST MAXX tires.
The ST MAXX, Mastercraft Courser CXT, and the Mickey Thompson ATZP3 are all basically the same tire. All made by Cooper.
The set on our JK is approaching 37000 miles and still look great.

Loving these Mickey Thompson ATZ-P3's. Just returning from a 1,400+ mile road trip( 600 miles each way and almost 200 miles off road). They were incredibly quiet at highway speeds and outperformed my expectations in the Alabama-goo. On the way home it rained almost the entire time (almost 10 hours!) These tires handled great in the rain! Very happy so far after clocking just over 4,000 miles since installed in September.

I have the 35" KO2s. They are okay. They are quiet, which is awesome after droning the KM2s for a year. They stick reasonably well dry, but I find them squirly on wet roads. Again, better than the KM2s, but far from something like a set of Michelin LTX (I know, not the same type of tire). I run them 30 psi.

I will try Ridge Grapplers when these wear out, but it'll be a while.

The weight is one of the biggest reasons I am considering the Mastercraft tire. I bought a set of 18" wheels and tires partially used, so I'm kind of stuck with the wheels (and I really like the look of them) The tires are about 1/2 worn and ride horrible. They are Toyo AT IIs. I've messed with tire pressures, etc. My suspension is new, with the stock Rubicon tires it rides great, with the Toyos the front end is all over the place. Balanced, aligned, upgraded steering stab, they must be cupped or something.

I'm just looking for a light, road tire that looks somewhat aggressive and if I did hit do a little offroading on level b roads in Iowa I'm good to go.

Another vote for Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ P3. The hybrid MT/AT is a good combination for pavement and off-road.

being in NJ you probably see a lot of snow like us up in ontario. I would recommend in order:

1. duratrac (got those myself and I can climb through snow banks now)
2. cooper at3/atw
3. BFG KO2 (expensive though)

If you take a drive into quebec or ontario, you probably can get them cheaper....

Based on that, I would look in to the Mastercraft CXT. Really good tire... If "light" is most important, the KO2's are usually the lightest tire in a given size.

I ran 33" KO2's for 2 years. Great street tire with very good off road performance. For an AT tire, they are tough to beat.

I upgraded to 35" KM2's now because I do more wheeling with it than daily driving

Mastercraft 285/70/17 $898 for 5


Toyo MT Open County 295/70/17 $1704 for 5.

I like the look of the Toyo tire a bit more but not $800 more.
Iíll take the Mastercrafts all day long and they will be on the wifeís JKU when hers are shot. I have 12000 + miles on them and still looking good with low road noise.
If $ isnít an issue, then Iíd jump on board with a lot of other people, but for the money...Mastercraft is serving me well.

Good road tire, but not built for a rig that sees much dirt. The sidewalls aren't built to take any punishment. It's a tire that is high on the list for my 2wd Frontier, but not for the Jeep.

not that I have much tire experience but I put on a setAT3's (they were getting rave reviews) and they lasted less than 500 miles before I pulled them off and sold them on craigslist. like @Pressurized said they don't belong on an offroad rig. If you only doing highway and town driving they are a good choice. they look wimpy tho if that matters.

Seems like the Mastercraft tires are a good bang for your buck. Now I'm torn between the MXTs or CXTs. They are the lightest tires on the market in the size I need. CXTs come in at 61lbs each and the MXTs are just a pound heavier at 62lbs each. Lighter than BFG KO2s by 3lbs and 2lbs respectively.

but OP was asking about daily driver tires. i have had my cooper at3ís (currently have 12k on them) and have had no issues. they have a semi-aggressive look like the OP asked.

my .02 says take a look. plus they have 55k mile warranty.

CXT is the non fancy-pants version of the ATZP3. Unless I know I need actual mud performance, I will take the A/T for better rain and ice performance over an M/T.

Good luck!
