Re: Why do stock tires suck so much?

my wife has the good years on her 08 KK and i HATE them. Can't wait for them to wear out, which i have to admit is taking longer then i thought it would.

i'll be strapping on a set of BFG ATs next

Re: Why do stock tires suck so much?

I did ok with the fortera HL's my wk came with. My old wrangler came with I think the SR-A's 30x9.5, whichever the sport comes with. They did ok, until one got a flat spot on it and would make the most annoying sound above 45mph. That's when I upgraded to some MT's, which made noise no matter what speed I was at.

Now I have the triple treads on my wk, I love them, quiet and AWSOME in rain.

Which tires do you have Wrangler SR-A's or the Fortera HLs? The Fortera is the better of the mix of tires that have been put on the WK and the SR-A seem to be the next best.

If it came stock with the 30x9.5 it was the Wrangler GS-A which i also had an issue with flat spots on those tires when i had a set.

That is a tire I'd like to try on one of my Jeeps someday. They look real promising even though I wish the speed rating was a little higher. Might just toss a set on my Cherokee as they'd be the cheapest to buy and that thing ain't nearly as fast as a couple of the others.

Re: Why do stock tires suck so much?

yea my wife has the SR-A's i believe - haven't had any problems except a flat every dam month. but i guess i can chalk that up to house construction.

i have no real reason not to like them - i'm just a BFG guy

Re: Why do stock tires suck so much?

I was just going to buy a set of Revo's until the guy told me that Revo II will come out in 2010. Does anyone know when the II's will be available in 245/65R17? I've got 65,000 on my Forteras.

Re: Why do stock tires suck so much?

I hated my stock SR-A's also, no traction in winter time at all, gotta say that i love my current Goodyears. might have to sipe them since i wheel the rig mostly in mud and durt.
