Whatcha doing with the 18's? I have been entertaining the idea of swapping out my 20's for them.

If you actually liked the Continental (Pro Contact?) then switching to a real tire on the Jeep will amaze you! My friend has the Nitto on his GC and the difference is drastic. I really didn't find the Conti all that inspiring on the Subi.
Goodyear must have their employees rating their tires because I find it hard to believe that the rating is accurate. Now, I will admit that the Goodyear Fortera that you buy aftermarket is better than the one that came on the car from the factory. 99% of my experience has found that the factory mounted tires are sub par to the same tire purchased after the fact. I don't know if it is how they are stored or transported or what.
