I just picked up a set of Revos. Very little road noise and they handle great. As far as in the mud goes.....I've yet to take the plunge.

I replaced the stock Goodyear Wranglers that my 96 4.0 XJ has seen since it was purchased with Bridgestone 30x9.5 Revos and it's like night and day in terms of DD driving. They also blow the Wranglers out of the water offroad too. I cant say how great they are compared to some hardcore M/T but as far as A/T goes they're absolutely amazing. In torrential rain they drive like the road is dry and ive gotten through mud holes that my Wranglers would be wrangled by.

Dick Cepek FCII

Here is a tire I've been looking at that is missing from the list.

Its the Dick Cepek FCII.



Go here for specs and more info.

http://www.dickcepek.com/FC_Radial.html

For those intersted in a 31 x 10.5, here is some additional info that I recieved via email request from Dick Cepeks website.

Quote:
The plies in sidewall are 2 ply and 2 ply tread with a 1 ply over wrap.

It measures 30.5 on a 8.5 wide rim.

The tread is 8.2 on a 8.5 wide rim.

Yeah, I think I'll have to add to the list.

I just wanted to double what Fargo said. I had those Dick Cepek FCII's on my 01 Ram and have another set on order for my 04 Ram. They are BY FAR the best all terrain tire I've ever owned.

I had the 30" BFG AT KOs on my 99 XJ for a very soggy and muddy Jeep Jamboree, and they did awesome. They looked like they were completely clogged with the mud, but they never gave up.

I think out of my whole group, which included at least two Rubicons, I got stuck the least (once).

This was in southern Indiana, so the mud elsewhere may be different, but they worked great for me.

On the road they were very quiet (for an AT tire), and I could often get around in the snow without use of 4wd.

I expect to be buying these tires again for my current project.

I just put on a set of 31x10.50 FC II's mounted on DC-1's last night. I think they look nice and the street ride is very quiet. I'll report back on off road prowess when I get a chance to get out.Here's a pic, these are a bit bigger than what I put on though.

Ok guys, I had my BGF AT's in some really rouch stuff today and I can say they are great. SOme heavy rocks and shale and no problem. I couldn't be happier with these AT's in the high country....Not suggesting they are rock crawlers but very adequate in my area...

Who has a tough sidwall for an AT? I recently put a hole in the sidewall of my Wrangler GSA and I wasn't happy. So I'm really concerned about sidewall strength.

I've heard the BFGs have weak sidewalls. Can this be confirmed?

How are the Dick Cepek FCIIs? Are they any stronger?

WJ Tires before a lift

I am going to do a 2" lift on my 03 WJ. But I would like to purchase the BFG ATs first. Does anyone know if the 245/75/16 will fit in the short term without the lift? It would be pretty funny to see the 2" lift with these tiny Cooper 225/75/16s on.

Just trying to do one piece at a time.

Supposedly 245/75s rub on a stock WJ. I'd do the lift first. I'm in the same situation, and lifted 2" with stock size tires. It looks a little funny, but I have toyo ATs on right now with a lot of tread left, so I'll probably get some 31s next year some time.

Pathfinder AT

I have put 20k on my Pathfinder ATs (31x10.50x15) from Discount Tire, including 2 Michigan winters, and couldn't be happier with them. We have used them on dirt trails, loose sand, rocks, gumbo mud and on the street - they are a great compromise for a DD that plays hard on the weekend. I found out too late that they are also available in 33x12.50x15 - I had already purchased a used set of Mickey Thompson MTX's and moved the Pathfinders to my wife's LJ to replace those crappy GSA Wranglers.

Do you have any idea of how the FC IIs compare to the BFG AT in terms of road noise? Sidewall Strength is something else I am concerned with, I know the BFG ATs have 3 ply sidewalls but it seems the FC IIs have a 2 ply sidewall. I am going to be buying a new set of tires for my Wrangler. It sees mostly Colorado trails (I am concerned with sidewall durability) and some mud. Mainly road use though. I want a tire that is as quiet or close to being as quiet as the BFG ATs I have on my Cruiser, but maybe a little more suited to being in the mud once in a great while.

Any comments?
