I've got 31",10.5",15" sport kings. I love them on dirt and on street. Cheap and doesn't kill my gads miles, great feel and light and strong. Look them up.

Supposedly - they are designed for heavier vehicles than an XJ ... so they should wear well.

Would be interesting to hear your thoughts on them in future posts so I can compare against the set I fitted recently ... They already seem seem better than the last Hankook A/T pattern I had.

Remember too ... The longer lasting, highway and A/T tyres - usually have a harder compound rubber ... which normally equates to less grip on the road.
Just checking back.........
I am still running the Hankooks on the WJ, we have put 30K on these tires and they look like they have no wear (they do have wear), they are still very firm and tight with no sidewall roll and I have since had them off road and through a good bit of snow. I must say I VERY impressed and will replace them with the same. When off road you GOTTA HEAT THEM UP for optimal grip, but they do great. They grip great even on simple wet roads, we have a pretty good hill at the end of our road with a stop sign at top and I have never tore loose there pulling out in rain.

I also must add that th Timberlines are doing great as well, they wear a bit more than the Hankooks but they are a great tire. Given the choice i would PAY for the hankooks vs. the Timberlines, the Hankooks were less $$ and a better tire.

I've had great mileage with BFG AT's over the years and many trucks and Jeeps. The Nokians are dead soft and wear like crap and the Goodyears I've run tend to lose chunks on the gravel roads I have around here.
