sorry, this is probably a little too late. i have a set of Dayton
timberlines on my TJ. i love them. they ride smooth, the wear has been great, quite (for a AT) and they were pretty cheap. i believe i paid approx $87 or so per tire and thats for a 31x10.50.

i will probably go witht hem again but in a 32 next time.

What kind of information are you looking for? The FCIIS are rated for 60,000 miles.

I have a 05 TJ with 2.25" coil spacers. I am in the market for new tires and am looking for some suggestions. I would like to get a good A/T tire to be used mainly on road and in the sand. Ideally, I won't be buying new tires. I will just use the stock TJ rims that come with the 30" tire package on the Sport. I think this limits me to a 10.5" wide tire and everything I've seen about the amount of lift I have puts me at a max dia of 32.

Does anyone know of a 32 x 10.5 tire? I know the PF Dirt Grip is a large 31 so I am considering it as it is supposed to be very good in the sand but I'm worried about on road noise and tread wear. Anyone have an experience with this? Also, if I am not doing any hard off roading (mainly just beach driving) can I squeeze a 33 x 10.5 A/T in there? I don't know that I will ever have my springs compressed to the bump stops so I wonder if I can get away with them...

Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

I don't have any info on the Parnelli Jones Dirt Grip, but from what I have seen in the specs they are as close to a 32x10.5x15 you will find.

I think if you spend an extra $100 you could put a 1" body lift under your Jeep and put the 33x10.5 tires on it. I believe there are numerous people running this setup. Check around the forum a little and you should find some pictures.

You are joking right? Please tell me your joking.

Since I see this is only your 2nd post and you are new to the forum I will assume you are actually serious. The Wrangler GSA came stock on the TJ for many years. They are fine on dry pavement but they suck pretty much everywhere else. I don't think anybody here likes them. They have poor traction and very week sidewalls. Most people here would only use them if they got them for free. Even then I don't think they would use them. I think if you do a search on the forum you will find out a lot of info on them.

By the way... Welcome to the forum. This is really a great forum to get info about Jeeps.

jpwagoneer1979 - Don't take the Wrangler comments personally. This really is a friendly forum. People just really don't like those tires and they get discussed here a lot. Stick around and you'll learn all kinds of good info.

meh, don't mind me, I'm just bieng a smart ***.

yes, the wrangler GSAs suck in nearly everything. The only good time I had with them was taking them out on a trail to beat them down to a pulp before I mounted my current STTs.

The 31" tires I ran at 28 psi. The new ones were at 47psi?!?!?!?!
I dropped them down to @ 26 and called the shop, they "put them at the reccomended psi on the side of the tire" (read this as the maximum allowable pressure). Now am I ate up like a soup sandwich or are these bozos in left field? Doesn't it go like bigger tire = bigger surface area. Bigger surface area = less weight per sq in. Less weight per sq in = less air pressure needed.
Now I have never claimed to be any type of rocket surgeon but you don't get 50k out of a set of tires by running them at max air pressure.
Any Thoughts?


OK I found my happy pill PEZ dispenser, I'll be alright.
It's beside the point what the optimal pressure is. You don't ever inflate tires to the max pressure on the sidewall, because that number has nothing to do with anything except what it says-- It's the max pressure the tire can take. The pressure you use depends on the vehicle. I'd never ever go to that shop again because apparently they hire monkeys. Honestly, how can someone who WORKS AT A TIRE SHOP not know that the max pressure is not the same as recommended?

They aren't even good on dry pavement. Wear funny, look worn out long before they are, and handle strangely.
