I just put on some Falken Rocky Mountain ATS (exact same as the Wild Peaks but exclusive to Discount Tire) today. I'll run em' for a couple hundred miles or so and let you all know how they roll.

I was wondering do they look aggressive in person, I keep hearing that the look alot more aggressive in person than they do online and I am still unable to find any local to look at.

The Lt sizes definitely look more aggressive in person. The Pmetric sizes are a little less aggressive looking than the Lt's, but I would say they maybe do look a little more aggressive in person. If you look around on google there are a few pics that get pretty close to showing what they look like in person but not many.

I just threw on a set of the Nitto Terra Grappler's in 245/65R17. It came close to rubbing but I got lucky. I have been looking for any excuse to try these out since I got them. It has rained almost non stop here in VA since I got them and they do awesome in the rain. I hit a few bigger puddles on the road on purpose and they cut right through it like butter. I have yet to take them off road, but the first chance I get they will get muddy. They did upgrade the look of the KJ.

I just recently bought another Jeep, a 2008 Grand Cherokee. It currently has the stock 245/65R17 wheels and tires on it. They have about 45-50K on them so I am looking to get some new tires and possibly wheels if the price is right. What are the largest tires I can put on my stock Grand Cherokee without having to put a lift on it? (lift will probably come next summer) 245/65R17 = 29.5 x 9.6 x 6.2 correct? I have a set of the BFGoodrich All Terrian AT-KO on my XJ and really like those but I am also looking at the Goodyear MTR and some ProComp tires. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

This thread is really hard to get a concensus out of.

My take so far (from many sources), and is only for a limited grouping of tires.

BF Goodrich is really the way to go if you are not sure and don't have a ton of money, but aren't 'poor' either. the A/T KO have been around forever, and are well loved by many (this is especially true among storm chasers who I find are a great resource). The Mud versions are nearly as great, but really only needed if you are doing a bit of off-roading.

Goodyear Duratecs being the next popular do require more of an investment, and are capable, but also somewhat of an aesthetic choice.

Goodyear Wrangler Authority (Wal-Mart) while having a similar tread warrant to the BF G's don't seem to have the user feedback). They are largely ignored by the off-road community due to the Wal-Mart sourcing. The benefit here, versus other tires is the road hazard warranty being honored anywhere in the US, which is especially good for travelers (this is my thought).

Definity Dakota AT (Pep Boy's) is only slightly popular, and like the Wal-Mart attribute, can be had with a road hazard and locations throughout the country (although much more limited no. of locations). They are probably the cheapest you can get as well (low bid idea comes to mind here).

Firestones still have a stigma, Falken seem to be for those 'in the know' and may be expensive (haven't researched those). Kumho's are not that popular and seem to have a following more with cross segment gearheads (import crowd). I personally won't ever buy them.


This is just some things I've found over the past week of searching, as well as a long time gear head. I could easily be wrong. I wish there was a more organized thread, site, etc. about tires that isn't part of the tirerack.com stuff. Maybe I've just yet to find it....or build it.

I have been trying to decide on a new set of tires for some time now and a tire that I have been looking at is the Cooper S/T Maxx but have not found many jeep owners using them and was wondering if anyone has them and what are your opinions of them. For anyone that is not sure what they are here is a link http://us.coopertire.com/Tires/Light-Truck/DISCOVERER-S-T-MAXX.aspx.

Can someone contrast this group a bit more? Road noise and ride is a biggie to me btw, I don't want lots of noise or a bumpy ride because once in awhile I use my Jeep for long trips (it's an LJ so why not). In spite of wanting good street manners I want something that's competent off road as well. Thanks for the great thread!
These tires look great, do yo know what the largest size is that I can get on a stock 2012 Wrangler S (I know I will have to upgrade my wheels too).

Anyways...what is the biggest tire i can put on it without lifting, leveling, rubbing, or using spacers. this is my daily driver and not looking to go nuts with it. Thanks for your help. Im sure this question and answer has been posted but i cant seem to find it.
