Re: The Age old tire question!!!

I bought Toyo Open Country A/T tires for my Jeep a couple years ago and have put 40k miles on them. It looks like I'll be getting at least another 20k+ miles before they're shot. I've gone through snow and been pushing it w/ the bumper. Taken them through mud and been scraping my diffs/transfer case cross member. I'll run out of clearance before I run out of grip.

I paid $150 per tire w/ install, balance, stems, etc. For me they were the best long life tire with good offroad ability for the price.

Very good tire. Ranked third to Mich LTX and Geolander a few years back on tire rack. Yet for some unknown reason to me not many folks buy this tire. Well maybe because it says Firestone. What ever it's a great tire. Had it on my 97 Blazer and loved them. Great traction in any condition. Very good dry traction in the street too. I've racer cars for years and could eat up corners at speed all day with this tire. Not the exact use of this tire but still...awesome traction and ride. Also got one for free and better price than Tire Rack from a local Merchant tire.

Re: The Age old tire question!!!

Well...about a month ago, I put new tires on the Jeep! We went with 255/60/17 Goodyear Assurance Triple Tread CS tires. So far, they are great! The Jeep dealer beat discount tires price. While at the dealer, I had them install the new Adco rear sway bar...that was just the beginning for the day. In the end, after new brake pads all around, new rotors, and four new shocks...It's like a completely different vehicle. Thanks everyone for the suggestions, on tires and the rear sway.
