So how much do tires wear when you wheel them regularly compared to driving on the road? I am talking mud, dirt, sand, not too much rock. Will I kill them faster? I have 31" Grabber AT2 on now if that makes any difference. I will be going with something more aggressive 33" when these are done though.

if you stay on dirt your tires will dry rot from age before you wear them out
x2. Think about how far you can travel on the highway at highway speed in a few hours time. Now think about how far you will travel crawling through trails, or through mud in a few hours time.

My 90 YJ is welded in the rear. I have had the 33" Dunlops on there for 10 months which I have only put 5,000 miles on it. My tires are 1/2 worn out already and I use it off road a lot, but the highway is what kills your tires. Especially if the rear is locked like mine. I only use mine around town and short trips to and from. The tight turning in parking lots really take a toll on the tires it seems l8ike short wheel based vehicles like our Jeeps suffer the most.
