New WK2 Diesel owner ready to take 'r off road!

Hi,

Just got my 2014 GCD and I love it! I am currently shopping around for mopar wheels (82212154) and tires that are better suited to be taken off road than the lattitudes, so any tips on what shops to support are more than welcomed!

Thanks,

-Leon

Depends on your meaning of "off road".

As a general all around tire that can handle highway, rain, water, moderate snow, mud, the Michelin MS/2 is hard to beat for traction, noise, handling, and treadlife.

For truly hard core offroading where you crawl rocks, super deep mud, etc. they would be just a bit out of their element compared to a Mickey Thompson, etc.

Thanks for the info

Based on a lot of good reviews, I have decided on the Goodyear duratracs in 275/65R18, now I'm just trying to figure out if I need the P or LT version, as I want to make sure I get the one that most people on here say fits the 2014 GC with quadralift
