Hey Everyone,

The time has come to change the 3 season Pirellis on my rig. I had road noise on the stock tires that while not unbearable, I would have appreciated a smoother quieter ride. I would love to hear everyone's suggestions as I will be ordering a set next week.

Best,

What model of jeep do you have and what type of tire are you looking for (AT, MS, touring)?

Theres not many choices in the odd size SRT used. Try tirerack.com for reviews on each tire they sell.

I have the nitto 420s tires on my 22" wheels and they are MUCH quieter than my stock Pirelli verdes AS

I have the same Nitto 420S and so far I have really liked them and they do seem a lot more smooth and quite.

No nitto 420's for stock rims. I have 1k miles on my Paradas, and have been happy with them. They ride a little smoother than the OEM all seasons; noise is not a problem.

They stick well during normal driving. I can get the rear end to slip, which I could not do with the OEMs, but this has been intentional :).

Well I placed my order for the Yokohama Paradas yesterday on Tire Rack. It was $700 for the Tires and an additional $140 for the shipping. I'll let everyone know when I get them mounted, hopefully the ride will be improved over the choppy runflat stockers.

Keep us posted as I think this is what I will do when I need a new set...close to $2K for tires to replace OEM ones is insane.

The Parada's aren't performance tires, their sidewall is obscenely weak so it's not surprising you are able to get them loose. The closest performance tires in our size are the BFG KDW's but they are known to get noisy over time. The Nitto and Toyo options are both better options than the Parada's' IMHO.

Do you know anything about the Hankook Ventus ST's? I'm certainly no tire expert just don't think spending 2K on a new set makes sense for performance levels that I will never come close to. And do the Toyo's come in the stock size?

My take on this based on driving with both...

Nitrogen filled tires are somewhat pointless from almost every "expert" I have spoken to. They produce a stiffer, harder ride and there is barely any difference in tire life etc. Ask any tire shop and you'll find many don't deal with Nitrogen. It's something auto manufactures do to make us think it's better so they can charge us more. it's more of a catch phrase than anything, if we drove Ferrari's - different story.

The only area they are better, the sidewalls are stiffer so if you're tracking, then yes, Nitro for sure.

For the other 99% of us though - they make a loud, harsh ride.

I flipped mine to air filled right away, got rid of the Pirellis and went with BF Goodrich g-Force KDW's and I couldn't be happier.

My Tires

Cheaper, better traction and quieter. All win.

I have the Toyo Proxy ST2 as well and I couldn't be happier.

I originally bought them to replace the tires on my 12 and ended up getting a 14 shortly after and had the dealer take the new tires off my 14 and take the Toyos off the 12.

When I was shopping for a tire I was t concerned with price and I have to tell you these things are awesome. Great in the snow, high speed rating, no road noise, and handle very well.

I would take a serious look at this tire. Just my .02 Good luck.

I had the Paradas mounted and balanced yesterday and instantly out of the shop the car:

-Rides quieter
-Smoother
-No longer has vibration in the steering wheel about 50 mph
-No longer pulses in the peddles when i let off the gas

A few things to consider, these yokahamas are brand new while the stock pirellis i took off were down to the wear bars. That being sad, as far as selecting a new tire for your Jeep, I would highly recommend choosing NON runflat tires. The ride is much quieter and smoother (not to mention they cost 30% of what OEM replacements cost, 700 vs over 2000). I hope my experience has been helpful.
