    Toyo Open Country M/T's

    Great wearing tire, 10ply, very quiet on the highway for a mud-terrain tire and also great tire for off-roading. Got 85,000 km on a set with my Ram 3500 CTD and will be getting another set after winter. Also, placed a set of 33's on my 08 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. No complaints at all.

    If a Mud-terrain tire is to aggressive for your style then look at the D*CK Cepek FC-II's these are a great wearing tire, great off road capability and quiet on the highway.

    Owned a set of BFG All-terrain's – pure Junk, terrible in the snow, terrible wearing tire and had several flats travelling on gravel roads.

    What size?
    are these going to be on the street also, or offroad only tires?

    off road only no street go with BFG Krawlers,
    on and off road BFG m/t or Pro comp M/T

    BF Goodrich AT/KO

    A set of 5 cost me about $1200 from discount tire.


    I have 33/12.5 on mine. You should get new wheels so that you dont rub when you turn.

    Black Mountain makes a good wheel that has an offset to solve that problem. In addition a 2 inch coil lift would be a very good choice. It'll take you a day to install, but it is well worth it.

    Collins Brothers is the place to go. Great online store and a boat load of support if you need help. These are real Jeep people. I get all of my stuff from there.

    Three questions for you:

    1. Is you Jeep lifted?
    2. What type of off roading do you do or plan on doing?
    3. Is this your everyday driver?

    Lets say this is non-lifted everyday driver. I'd recommend BFG All Terrains. Great on road handling. Great in dirt. (Haven't been to happy with their resisting chipping when rock crawling.) But if your a hill climbing, trail blazing week end warrior, BFG AT would be the tire. Also you can get 40K+ miles out of them easily. If you live in an area that has mud and snow, then a set of BFG MT of Cooper SST will do the job, but you will get less miles out of them because of the gaps in the lugs are wider in the tires.

    My advice for tire size on a non lifted TJ is no bigger than a 30×9.50. You don't want to fill the wheel wells with tire and not allow room for movement. Besides the Jeep looks stupid….so does the driver.

    Hope this helps.

    FYI….the Toyo Open Country MT tires aren't available smaller that a 33 in tire. I would buy a set if they made 31's or 32's.

    That really depends on how much you off road with it and how much you drive on the highway with it. i could really get into it but i dont like typeing Long answers. Check out reviews on different tires and see what ones discribe your driving life style.
