I will continue to swear by these and have no clue if they even make them anymore...but Dunlop Mud Rovers. Ive owned 3 sets(31's on a XJ 31's on a TJ and 32's on my current XJ)

Great in the snow, mud and even ice. They are quiet for a M/T on the road and they are aggressive for what they are. Tread pattern wise is kinda like the BFG M/T

2007 JKU- Pretty much stock
1998 XJ- Gone
1992 XJ- Sold
1990 YJ- Sold

X2 on the Dunlop Mud Rovers. I run 33x12.50x15s on my YJ. they are quiet for a mud tire. they do what they are supposed to do off road. only stuck once with them, kinda my fault. I hit a wet sugar sand hole and burried axle deep within two feet.

km2s or mtr/k's. I havent heard a complaint about either but I personally run the Km2s.

ProComp Xtreme A/t's are ok for an all around tire but if there is any thick mud where you run stay away from them.

Also I might recommend Goodyear Duratracs

I like the Dunlop Mudrovers as well. Good all around tire for a good price. Check out my gallery for a few pictures.
