I'm running Cooper Discoverer AT/3's. I don't know if that's what you're looking for, but they look and perform well, plus they wear very well.


'94 YJ: 4.0L HO fi, 5-speed AX-15, Daystar 1.25" shackles, 17" JK wheels, lined tub, custom paint, Bestop Supertop, etc..
'88 YJ: 4.2L carb, 5-speed, stock everything. Banana-ish yellow. hard top. 26,XXX original miles.

They do if you go to a 16" rim. I know a lot of folks stick with the 15" rim because you can air down more. I may go to a 16" rim on my Jeep, my son's Discovery already has 16" rims. I'm at least a year away from going up to 33's so I have time to decide.

If you do any offroading that involves mud, you will hate any AT. Anyone that tells you different is a liar or never driven on muddy trails. They will be better than a pure street tire, but thats about it. If you don't do mud and generally wheel when it's dry out ATs will be fine, otherwise deal with the noise and get some MTs. It's a trade off either way.

I was in your shoes for my dd zj. Wanted a aggressive a/t. Got the Goodyear duratracs and love them. 2 years and 20+k miles and still going strong. They wear awesome and great dry and wet road traction. Same with dry and muddy dirt roads.

Ain't that the truth. I have summit trail climber AT.
Edit: There ehh....in the mud. I can keep going most the time but if its super sticky mud they clog up and turn into mud slicks. Lol
For rocky hill climbs that are wet or dry it does good.
Im looking at getting general grabber 31s when wear these out.
