My Jeep certainly isn't a street queen or a speed bump crawler, and I'm not a poser. (or at least I don't think
I am.) The Jeep does camping, towing, trails, and some mild/moderate wheeling. In fact, I'm pretty sure its never seen the mall parking lot even once since I've owned it. Thats what the Escort is for.
I'm buying a set of 31" Westlake SL 369 A/T's (also sold under the name "Milestar", by a Chinese company). Its the best I can do for now with my budget. The tread looks aggressive enough and the price is right-- dealer quoted me $500 for all 5 tires, mounted & balanced. I know these aren't BF Goodrich but the reviews seem favorable for such an inexpensive tire. And with as little driving the Jeep actually does, maybe 3 to 4k a year, I expect they'll last a good long while if properly cared for.
