Need suggestions for new tires on my Jeep GC 2014

Hi fellow Jeepers,

I was looking for new tires to replace my stock Michelin on 2014 Jeep GC with Quadralift. I am going to zero in on one of the below. Looking for reviews from Jeepers who have actually used them:

Main usage:
On-Road : 70%
Off-Road/Dirt : 20%
Ice/Snow : 10%
This is just the usage and does not mean that they bail out in off-road and ice.
Max MPG hit: 1-2 mpg

Tires:
1. Cooper ST MAXX
2. Cooper AT3
3. Falken Wildpeak AT
4. General Grabber AT2

I am looking for slight larger tires around 32" (4-5% more thank stock 265/60R18). From the other threads in forum it is possible with no or minimal rubbing. Any first hand experience on the same?

Also, I want to use stock 18" RIM. Is this possible if I want to keep same width but increased height?

Thanks in advance for all the suggestions.

Thanks,
Shail

Thanks Hutch....

Just visit few shops today and finalized Cooper AT3. There is large variation in price for same size.

Also, Jeep Dealer in the area suggested little bigger tires 275/65R18.

As per all shops, stock 18" rim can be used with bigger tires.

I have the Discoverer AT3 on my WJ for the past 35k miles and I am very happy with them. They are quiet, handle well, and do great in wet and snow.

Thanks Trav1s.

Cooper AT3 it is. Trying to find a better deal. Minimum price here is $740 out of shop.

Its from a local Jeep dealer who will order tires (265/65R18) and $70 for installation.

Any known Cooper rebates??

Those AT3s look good. I kinda like the white letter out too, aside from what others always say.

Also had to zoom in on that second pic, because I thought the paint on your hood was flaking. But no, just a husky decal...or two. Wasn't expecting that.
