Need tire advise

Hi,

I need to buy new tires for my 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, but not sure which tires I should go with. I was thing about General Grabber AT2. I do not take the Jeep off road and run 31X10.5X15s. Most important to me is price and tread wear.

Here is more information about my Jeep:

4.0L/Auto
Select Drive Transfer Case
2 Lift Off Road Suspension
Old Man EMU 2 coil springs
Rubicon Adjustable Lower Control Arms
Procomp Steering Stabilizer
New Poly Suspension Bushings
Stabilizer Bar Disconnects
Limited Slip Differentials ( front and rear) with 410 gears
Front & Rear adjustable track bars

Any help would be deeply appreciated.

I have heard good things about those tires, especially for the price

these are 139 a pop at discount

you'll just have to poke around tire reviews and see what you want.

since you aren't going to be wheeling it want the look no need for higher priced off road tires. i.e. BFG all terrains those are 168 a pop at discount so between those 2 you'll save 30 a tire.

If you don't hit the dirt too much i'd suggest BFG All terrains, they wear forever
fairly cheap and there alright in most everything but mud, they tend to clog.

the General grabbers are similar to the BFGs except cheaper, last longer and don't chunk as easy.

i would run them in a heartbeat.
