Tires?

Hey guys, Im looking at all terrain tires for my YJ and im not sure which ones toget. My jeep is a daily driver and I take it trail riding on the weekends. I dont care about if theyre loud i want them to perform off road while well mannered on the road. I was looking at getting the tires in 33x12.50x15r. I heard the bfg KO AT's are good but does anyone recommend anything else?

Goodyear duratracs are another great tire for dd/weekend warrior.

My KM2's are great on and off road, not too loud and also wear very well. I have about 8K on them and they are barely worn.

Wave as you pass me :D

The problems of owning 2 Jeeps ... I never know which one to work on or which YJ gets the next mod ...

I'm rather partial to the Cooper STT. It has been a great tire for me. Reasonably quiet and never left me stuck where I play.

The km2's aren't exactly marketed as all terrain tires but they fit the criteria you're looking for and they look great on any jeep. Well unless you have rockstar rims.

I love my BFG A/T KOs. I went from Mickey Baja Claws to the A/T's. I tell you the ride was infinitely better and my mpg's went up just a tad too. My favorite a/ts were Mastercraft Courser AT2's. But they didn't sell them any bigger than 31's. But I remember hanging with the big boys with that tire.

Not much motion in the ocean, but I'm the captain.

I really like my Yokohama Geolander AT/S's. Finally had a chance to test them last weekend and they performed perfectly on rock, sand and mud. They're quiet as a mouse on the road and, based on how they're wearing on my wife's truck, should last a long time on the Wrangler.

Another KM2 proponent. They do well in the rocks and the little bit of mud I have to go through. They are relatively quite for a M/T and wear well on the road. I've had mine for over 3 years and I have about half tread left and I drive my jeep to all the trails (which could be hundreds of miles away) wheel it and drive back.

Like always that's just my 2 cents.

I have the BFG A/T KO's and really like them. For the way I use my jeep, (DD and weekend trails) they work great. If you do alot of really heavy trail riding, then I would go with an M/T style tire.

As far as mud or soft dirt and sand the A/T's work really well. I have heard that M/T's can dig themselves into loose sand, but I have not run them, so I don't have experience there.
