Just put some Laufenn X fit AT tires on my 2012 wk2

So I got to the point where I couldn't take the ridiculously loud ride of the Procomp Xtreme AT tires (265/70/17) and sold them on Craigslist to buy something quieter. Originally was going to buy the Hankook Dynapro's ATM's but recently read Hankook launched a new sister brand called Laufenn and decided to give them a shot. Couldn't be happier, they look great, ride extremely smooth and are very quiet. On top of that they are very reasonably priced! I've only had them for a week but so far I would highly recommend.

Nice! I signed up just so I can view your pics and post a thanks. I've been googling Laufenn tires to find reviews and pics of how they look on a truck and your's is the only decent one I can find. I'm gonna pick up a set for my Montero based on your 4 line review. Thanks again buddy!

Yep love them, they drive great. The jeep on the other hand has been breaking left and right, think I got a lemon.

I've ordered Laufeen X fit 275/70/18 and Pro Comp 7036 with the Tuff Country 2" Level Kit. Should have it all on in a few days.

Honestly not sure, but I know they are a new brand developed by Hankook and they drive as good as the Hankook equivalent in my opinion.

Did your tires rub? I just put 18" pro comps with the Laufenn X AT and I'm having rubbage in front and back while turning.

Mine rub very slightly if i turn the front wheels all the way but that rarely happens and the the back is completely clear. Do you have a 2.5 inch level kit?
