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?

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

they are louder. they make it sound like you're driving a real truck. i love m/t's, and will never go back to an a/t. way too many compormises with the a/t.

definitely not true. There are plenty of MT's that will go 40K

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.
