mud terrains generally have deeper tread, you may be able to go one size up from stock with little rubbing issues.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

I would stick with 245/70-16's if you're going to get a MT since they run a bit larger generally then an AT or street tire.

Make sure to specify what type of tire you want - otherwise they'll probably stick you with some crappy generic MT tire which will suck in every situation.

x2 with the bigger/more aggressive tread of the m/t id go with the 245/70
