Re: will this fit?

Oh dont get me wrong, She loves my jeep, and she loved my lifted Xj but she hated the empty wallet, the constant need to be wrenching and spending money and upgrading stuff. It was actually her idea for me to get a WK. I am just happy that i am putting the Cooper STTs on it in a 245/70/17 that will make up for not being able to lift it for now. besides moving out and starting life/family is more important then a lift for my jeep.

eh - i thought about it. but its pointless

i have a CJ7 i want to start rebuilding too once my house is in shape. So to have 3 vehicles going will really kill me.

plus its an 08 w/ over 50k on it. she drives 80 miles a day to work.

My plan right now is to trade it in 2011 for the new GC for her.

but if i can throw 2" on it w/out loosing the ESP - maybe i will. Once it needs tires i'll look into it more.

My point is that everyone seems to run the same tires and it gets old because alot of people ahve never tried anything besides what everyone else has. there are so many other amazing and better tires out there.

A big thing to consider is sipping in an MT, The sipping is what gives good traction on wet and rainy roads, slick rock etc. The next thing to think about is tread design. Cheap MTs like the mastercraft courser MT are very harsh treads on a soft compount and they are very loud and wear out fast. There are alot of big name tires that are just like this, mickey thompson tires are guilty of this as well. The Toyo Open country MT is almost identical to the Cooper Stt but its a softer rubber and they dont last as long.

The Cooper Stt, has good looks, great road manners, quieter then most MTs, sipping, great snow traction (had them for 2 winters before selling the jeep they were on) and great in mud/rocks/etc...

All i am saying is try something different.
my dad bought me a set of BFG AT's when i was 18 when i 1st got my CJ and i never looked back.

I dnt have much experience w/ other tires. The think i love the most about the KM2's are how quiet they are on the road. I'm willing to bet they are the quietest MT on the market

she must be smoking hot if she is controlling your jeep decisions. That's the 1 thing my wife knows not to get in the middle of.

Re: will this fit?

LOL, i cant say i dont understand why i should not lift my WK as i am still paying for everything i bought for my lifted XJ, and i dont even own it any more. (credit cards ugh.) i still have about 6 grand to pay off on credit cards on top of other bills/debts/school loans etc so i am not going to bring up lifting it until everything is paid off in a few years.

Yes, They make great tires. The Vativa AT and MT are good tires and the WRG2 is supposed to be a great suv year round all season snow tire.

Re: will this fit?

haha well i swear by Super Swamper tires... i have always loved them. (minus the thorn turds)

Pro crap is named that for a reason...

and although i dream of the two tires i listed earlier, they really arent practical (or come in the right size) OR under $300 per tire.

I'll probably end up with Revo's or Silent Armors. I love bridgestone and goodyear too.
