Black WK2 Altitude - What Tires

I have a 2015 black Altitude. Tires are going to need replacing soon. Debating a couple of items:

1) Should I do raised white letters? Always loved this on my pickups. Anyone done it and have pics on a black Altitude? Thoughts?

2) Thinking an aggressive tire would give it a different look. Thoughts?

3) What's a good tire (if I don't try something a little aggressive) that rides smooth and lasts a good amount of miles. I travel about 35k miles a year.

Thanks

More aggressive tires definitely change the look. These Terra Grappler G2's have a 65k tread life warranty.

I have the same Nitto's. Def changes the look. They look great but I do miss the smooth ride of the stock tires. They also make the jeep feel a bit heavy. I have the 3.6l so you many not feel a difference if you have he Hemi.

Thanks guys! They look great. I have a few friends that have them on their trucks for wheeling, never thought of putting them on the Jeep.

I also have the 3.6, so that is a concern as well. Thanks

Looks good.
Same here, looking for new shoes. What's the size on those Nittos? Noise leve?
I'm looking to do 285/50/20 on/off road not to aggressive thread because of the noise.

Thanks! Same as stock size 265/50/R20 . Noise is def not as quiet as stock, and not as loud as let's says some BFG mud terrains. Basically what the stock rubicons are running and some WK2's. I don't notice the noise of the tires on the highway anymore.

Saw a silver Altitude on the GWB today. It had BFG All Terrains. Looked pretty sweet.
