Need On-Road only tire suggestions...

Hey Guys,

I have a 2011 WK2 Limited but only RWD and therefore never intend on pretending to go off-road. I am looking for a replacement tire for my stock 18" rims. I live in Cleveland, Ohio so snow driving happens but winters are pretty mild here. Everyone seems to praise the GY Silent Armor's but is this too much tire for normal on road use only? Thanks for your suggestions!

Silent Armor is good choice considering your situation... a 12 month tire with snow flake/mountain symbol. I am using LTX M/S 2's but I have AWD.

+1 on the Silent Armors. A great tire, and it will look like a Jeep.

For on-road only... just get the Jeep Off-Road factory tires. They are pretty good for highway use.
