Tyres

Hi guys. I am thinking of replacing my A/T's with M/T's mainly because i prefer the more aggressive look. What difference will i notice having the M/T's bearing in mind i mainly use the Jeep on the road and only occasionally on a muddy field?

Vibes and loud noise.

whereas the ATs can last 40k and up, MTs will last 15k if only used on the road

Go with Cooper Discoverer STT. 60,000 Mile Warranty

Why is there a fish finder in your Jeep?

Not hard, if you have a socket wrench and the mental capacity of a ham sandwich.

If you want the look of the M/T's you might like the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R. They look like a M/T but I believe they are actually classified as A/Ts (someone correct me if im wrong). The pair I had lasted 55,000 miles before I sold the car. They still had enough tread left for daily driving but didn't have much meat left for mud.

I have the Silent Armors on my wife's WJ and she loves them. Not super aggressive look but not bad either.

The MT/Rs are a animal of their own, not an MT and not exactly an AT. They do pretty well on the road and last around 50k.
