I'm running Yokohama Geolander AT/S on mine. 31x10.5x15 Nice tread, insanely quite, sick life. I've had them on my wife's Durango for over 2 years (40+k miles) and they still have a solid 1-2 years left on them.

I would go with these:

https://www.treadwright.com/p-116-28...a-t-b2b-d.aspx

I've had the 31/10.5R15's on my Jeep for over two years and they don't even look worn. They drive very well on the street and off road and you can't beat the price.

As anyone with experience with these "retreads" will tell you, they ain't your daddy's retreads. Also, they now offer new rubber, bead to bead.

These are going on my son's Discovery soon:

Just my 2c

As far as long lasting the bfg AT and MT are awesome!!
I have the MT 33" on my 3/4 ton gmc and they have no road noise for the aggressive *** tread. It's a hoss in the mud. Beautiful on the road. I have 14k miles on them and they still have the little dingles on the tires. I'd say 95% tread left on them. I'm not easy on them and 90% of the miles are pavement. Hands down will never buy another tire dual purpose. The AT I ran for a long time as well but sucked in any mud. Those lasted 45k miles though. Good luck and hope this helps.

The Falken ATs that Savvy/Currie ran on their EMC winning LJ look pretty good. Got a buddy looking at them for his CJ he's about to start DDing.

Wait so which tire type is better AT or MT tires? I live in Chicago and like I said before it is my daily driver, although I will take it offroading every once in a while but 95 % of the time it will be on pavement, but I do want a very aggressive look

go with an all terrain tire like the pro comp or the bf goodrich all terrain, ive had all terrain bg goodrich 33*12.50 and they were great, your almost answering your own question, your saying you want an aggressive tire but your going to be on street most of the time and like 5% offroad so AT would be best for you, although I bought super swamper tsl and they have lasted me 4 yrs and its my dd! pm me for a discount website i found for tires.

Our first YJ had super swampers on it when we got it. They gave me a headache. Replaced them with some Dick Cepek Crushers I got a sick deal on. They were awesome mud tires and seriously aggressive.

When I got tires for this YJ I, I decided that since she'd be on road 90% of the time, that high quality AT's were the way to go. MT's will always be louder then AT's.

The only issue with this is that they dont produce 33 inch tires anymore
