Tire Choices
 
Well it is time to put some new rubber on the jeep. Just want a few opinions and see what you guys think. I am in desperate need of tires.

Right now I am looking at:

255/70/r17
General Grabber At2
Hankook Dynapro ATM
Falken Rocky Mountain ATS

This route will be with a 2' RC Lift and probably spacers, pinch weld.

265/70/r17
Goodyear Wrangler Authority
Mickey Thompson Baja Radial STZ

I am open to options and ideas. I mostly due road work with a little bit of free way driving.

So what do you guys think????

265/70/17 Duratracs or BFG AT's.

I'm running the General Grabber AT2 tires and haven't had any problems with them. Road noise isn't bad and they do great in snow and mud.

Another good choice to look at before purchasing.

I recently got 245/70/17 Duratracs and absolutely love them! I would also add Cooper Discoverer AT3's to your list...those have been getting very good reviews also.

I second the Coopers. Leaning towards these myself in the near future. Lots of good reviews.

I've found Cooper AT3's are much better than the Firestone Dest AT or the 2 different Goodyear's I had on mine. Great in snow, plus highway driving is smoother, also over potholes, bumps, and offroad they are great. Quieter at Hwy speed than the Dest. with just a little hum at lower speed.

I fully back the Cooper AT3's. cant say enough good things about these tires all around. and they are cheaper than FS Destinations and BFGs.

I have 255/65/17 General Grabber at2's on my 09 4.7 laredo. Awesome tire great in the snow and rain and not much louder the fortera's I replaced
