tire recommendations

hi again,
wanting to buy a set of tires for my 93 wrangler but from what i can tell, it's an unpopular size. 30/9.5 15
first is there a tire size that will work on the jeep?
what tire would you recommend. Store or online

looking for mud and snow but will settle for at's

30" s will fit and not rub with stock setup and wheels..if you plan on lifting it in the future don't spend too much.

What rear axle do you have? If it's a Dana 35, 30"s are pushing it. I wouldn't go above 29". Try Kenda Klever, they're getting popular because they have an aggressive tread and are cheap. They're just 40k mile tires, which is good because you might want to change them eventually.

Mine YJ had 30/9.5's on it when I bought it, Firestone AT's. I drove it for a year without any issues. I bought Cooper STT's (32") when I did my rebuild and I love them. I have Cooper AT/3's on my WJ and I can't say anything bad about them, either. My AT/3's preformed really well in the snow this past winter, YJ wasn't on the road yet. Both are pricey, though.

Installed a set of Firestone Destination AT in 225/75 15. Quiet but aggressive looking. Not sure how they'll do in the winter months coming up.
