Tire help. Please!!!

Hello. I have a 90 YJ with a soa lift,high steering and a shackle lift. I have 15x35x15 Super Swamper bias ply tires and they suck. I had a shop install balance powder insie the tires and it didn't hepl much. The jeep has a bad tire wobble to highway speed. All the steering and suspension are new. I'm looking for a good tire for both on road and mud. I was thinking about BFG mud terrain os something like that. I was also offered a set of Toyo mud country at a good price. I would like to know what people have on their jeep that works well for them. I dont want to make anoter mistake like I did with the Swampers. Thank you for your help.

Thank you for the reply. I think I am going to get the BFG's. The Toyo's seem to be a bit heavier and I can get new BFG's for the price of the used Toyo's.

I've actually been really happy with the General Grabber AT2's that I have.

They are dirt cheap compared to the BFG, and they have a similar tread pattern. I got them the same week that my brother got his BFG's and he's about to need new tires and mine are still at about 80%.

The performance is the same as the BFG's as well.

I have the Toyo MT's and really like them. They are great on the road, clean out in the mud, and awesome in rocks. Air them down and they wrap around rocks and grab. Both the Toyo's and BFG's have a 3 ply sidewall but the Toyo is much more heavily built.
