So Im PCSing to Alaska. This means Im going to cram the lift in the back of my Jeep and ship the wheels and tires with the rest of my household there. Im glad I havent ordered tires yet because now Im running into a predicament. It snows...a lot. I want to run a 33" tire. I have read and read and there is such a split discussion on 10.5" tire performance in snow/mud/sand/rocks. Im leaning towards the 10.5" as opposed to the 12.5" for snow performance. I dont want to go off and have to buy snow tires so I want to be able to run these year round. The other issue is, I have read most 10.5's come in A/T. There is going to be mud, a lot of it Im sure. Ive run A/T's on my XJ and it seemed fine.
So down to the basics, what is my best option here? I was set on getting MTR's but now I need to reassess that.
After running 12.5's for years through New England winters I decided to "downgrade" to a narrower tire.
Even though the tires I wound up with have a tread design like a mud terrain more than an A/T, I am MUCH more confident in these over the 12.5's.
An A/T pattern would be even better for the same width.
I'm very happy with my tires.
