Have a 22 Summit just like yours. Plan to change the OE Pirelli Scorpion Verde before winter. Ran Michelin Defender LTX on my '14 & '17 GC and really liked the ride & look of them. Love the look of your more aggressive tire. How is the ride and is there any road noise? The Michelin's were whisper quiet, wore like iron, and did well in the snow. That was what I was going back to but................

Haven’t driven on them enough yet to give a full review. At first brush, they seem ever so slightly louder than the stock tires, but nothing much. Granted, I am coming from a Diesel F250 that had Good Year Wrangler Duratracs… so this is noticeably better.

I have those tires on my Xterra. They have less grip for canyon driving than the street tires Jeep fits on these cars, but are much better off road, and about as quiet as it gets for capable A/T tires. I've probably got about 10k on mine, and haven't noticed any real change. They're fine on the highway, just not 'cornering' focused. Everything is a compromise, though, and this isn't really a canyon carver to begin with, given the relatively soft air suspension.

I'm contemplating ordering some 21" General Grabber AT3 tires from the UK (DOT approved) for SR wheels.
