My ZJ rides great. I don't know that it is the tires, do you have stock suspension or a lift? Is the ride stiff or bouncy?

If you don't get stuck, keep trying!

Shocks don't last forever. depending on how rough the roads are expect 50k to 100k from a set, less if you have a lift

What year is your jeep? That would have a lot to do with it.
