Tires

I just bought a used 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lerado 4x4 and I'm working in North Dakota. My tire size is P245/70R17...what is a good M/S tire that I can use on my jeep and not have it looking ghetto. Any suggestions?

For a good MS tire, I would suggest the Michelin LTX M/S 2, although I have no experience with them myself.

Re: Tires

Welcome. Where are you at in ND? I lived in Harvey for the first 23 years of my life. Your stock tires may do fine unless they are really worn. There are endless possibilities. The GY Silent Armors have the "snowflake" symbol, and are excellent. BFG Rugged Terrain T/A seems to get excellent reviews. Firestone Destination AT, General Grabber AT, Cooper Discoverer A/T3, are all good as well.

Re: Tires

I'm working in Williston, ND for Halliburton. I'm a field mechanic, granduated from Nashville Auto Diesel College. I researched tires and decided to go with the Cooper AT3 245/70R/17.

Re: Tires

I went with the Cooper AT3, love the aggresive tread pattern. Tire shops in this town wanted to charge between $215-$245 per tire...screw that shit. I drove the 90 minutes to Minot, ND and got the same tire for $190 per. After all was said and done it cost me just a little over $800.
