I just picked up my 09 JK X last night. It has Hankook Dynapros at 255/75/17 on the street but a Goodyear Wrangler as the spare. Now the spare is also 255/75/17. My first question is are the Hankooks any good? 2nd question is even though the spare is a different brand, is that going to make any difference when its needed?

Hankooks are good...Jimbo runs em, and he wheels his Jeep more than most mortals on this forum.

Your spare will work. I wouldn't put it on and drive with it for an extended period of time, but it'll save your bacon if you blow a tire or throw a bead wheeling in the stix. :thumb:

Thank you for the information. Everything I could use my Google-fu skills on seems to be decent reviews and cost didn't seem to bad. I am sure that Jimbo has forgotten more then I may ever know.
As far as the spare tire, that is also what I was thinking. I will just leave it there then unless I would need it.

What part of Wisconsin are you in? I lived in Wausau for about 5 years.

I'm in the Fox Valley. Was just talking to a buddy who used to live in Wausau, worked at Granite Peak. They're getting killed this year with no snow and the # of 40º days we've been having. :nonono:

I live in PA now and they are having the same issues here at the ski places. Have to love a winter where it snows one day and then hits 50 the next.:thumb:
