All while keeping in mind I dont use the vehicle for off-roading and most of the miles are commuting to work via highways. So I would need a tire that is practical yet bigger than what I currently have. Being a new jeep owner and new to this forum... any suggestions?
To fill out the Jeep a little better, look into a 33" tire. That will be the next step up for your Jeep. You can also look around in the forsale section and see about a set of either Rubicon or Sahara take offs. those will have the larger wheel you are looking for and also have a little bigger tire.
If you want a good tire for the street, you will want to look for an All-Terrain tire. There are a few really good A/T's out there, such as the BFG All-Terrain
. It will last forever and behave great on the road. If those seem to aggressive for you, look at the Toyo Open Country All-Terrain
. Again, they will be great on the street and give you the look you are going for.
Hope this helps, shoot me a PM if you need any other help!
