PO was stripping, therefore she is a stripper. That is if she's still alive

Received my new speakers for the rear in the mail. Also, Just bought my parts for 3.5" lift. Now time to save up for some rims and tires. I was thinking about the Treadwrights, but i drive about 69% highway. Dont know if that makes a difference or not. ANyone have any suggestions for some 31's under $160 each... lol. Just weighing my options here.

TW guard dogs ( old GY mtr style) in 31x10.5x15 are $105 a piece. Their bfg all terrain style is $93, but they're backordered right now. I do hear that they are noisy and weigh more than a standard tire, but for the price and warranty on manufacturing defects, like the tread separating from the carcass, sounds like a damn good deal to me.

I paid $150 each for my 33x12.50 Duratracs. I assume 31's would be cheaper

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

Cooper discoverer stt, amazing tires. Great in mud and snow. Minimal noise on the road, great on the freeway. Farm and fleet has them around the price you're looking to spend.

I have treadwrights bfg on my wj. They are a great on road tire, and I agree they are heavy. I have a set of walmart goodyear authority on my zj in 31, I couldn't love these tires more. They clean great, wear awesome, and grab in whatever terrain I throw at them. I'd recommend either the gy from Wally world or gaurd dog treadwrights.

Thanks for the info guys. And i didnt know treadwright had warranty for seperation. Cause thats the only thing that is making me skeptical about the guard dogs.

Maybe they don't have a warranty per se but they'll replace it if it does at least that's what I've heard from other people on the internetz.
