    Default new tires... *sigh*

    Now comes the time that i have to get serious about buying new tires especially if im going to be driving to a new tech school. The tires themselves have held up perfect and are good tires off road, they are goodyear wrangler SR-A's. The reason they have to be preplaced is one is defective, you can see braided material on the inside which the tire guy at discount tire said was not a good thing and one in the front was attacked buy some fellow dorm members with 2 maybe 8 nails (no joke) so the steel belting is pretty bad. so trips to the springs arent as comfortable as they used to be. plus even though they are good offroad, they arent great in rain at all and they hydro plane... a lot. so whats everybody running? um going to stick with the 235/75 tire size since i wont be lifting anytime soon and with the 4 inch backspacing, it already rubs all the time

    I have Interco TSLs- GREAT in the sandy, rocky desert here.

    I'd say it depends on what kind of wheeling you will be doing at your new destination. When I was in AZ before, I had BFG AT's- when I went to NC, I got BFG MT's... match your shoes to your surface.

    I don't know about on Jeeps as I have Wranglers on mine, and I don't know what you plan on doing as far as offroading or daily driving, but I have these on my 2006 Durango and I have nothing but good praise.. I've considered getting them for the YJ, but the tires on my Jeep are damned near brand new.

    GREAT tires.

    Whatever tires you decide on, give me a call before you order. I am a retailer/installer for Discount Tire Direct, Tire Rack and many others. I'm sure I can get you hooked up with a good price.

    Just a though, Big O has a tire that is for off road (and in different varieties), with a no questions asked 50,000 mile warranty. Unless it is damaged by a wreck or some other crap like that. You can wheel them, tear them up in the woods, and they are covered. The coverage also don't cost anything and the tread pattern looks ok. I was just there and they put a pair on one of our Tahoe Patrol Vehicles and they do nice. Grip well in loose stuff too.

    I got the TSL radials they are pretty quiet and they are great in the snow mud and on rocks just have to air them down. But when you air them down your gas gauge goes with the air gauge lol

    Default Tires

    I am running Kelly Safari Trex. I do not participate in the extreme wheeling, but have not had any problems yet. By the way, they are the best tire I've run for rain. That was paramount for me driving the kids around. Previous treads: Goodyear Wrangler, GY MTX, BFG Long Trail, BFG AT.

    Good Luck!

    BFG M/T works good for daily and off road so far. But I do the 10.5 which no one around here carries. Called a dozen places on fathers day looking before I found a place that didnt need to take 6 days to be shipped in.
