Any suggestions or recommendations?

I'm in the process of getting new tires for my GC. I only have the bilstein's and RC spacers. I'm not going to lift it...yet. The tire size I have decided on is 245/70/17. I need to get 5 tires and have a fully inflated spare. I also don't have anyone or have the tools to do a hitch modification. I was thinking of getting 255/65/17s but from what research I have done, it will be a tight fit in the spare and I would have to mod the hitch so it looks like the 245/70/17s are my only option.

I've been on tirerack and every other online tire place, the two tires that keep on coming up is the General Grabber AT2 and the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2's.

Any suggestions on these tires, I thought I'de throw this one out there to hear from the experts before I purchase these tires.

I had a set of Grabber AT2s on my old nissan xterra. great tire, fairly quite on road and was amazing off road.

I also see TONS of trucks come through my shop sporting those tires and every person i've talked to about them has only had good things to say.

I've had my General AT2's for over a year now and i absolutely love them. Rain or shine they perform excellent.

I have 255/70/17 on mine. I have had many sets of Revos and they are awesome tires.

This is with no lift. No rubbing either.

No bolt cutting.
