Any info on these tires

Hey everyone,

I am looking at possibly buying the following jeep and was wondering if anyone knew why type of tires are it? Brand might be hard but at least the type of tire they are considered and any pros and cons about them. Thanks

I can't see the tread very well can you get a pic of them from the front. They look descent.

The tires are new so I know the threads are good. I was wondering more on the style? Are they good for daily driving, rain light snow?

Yes I was talking about the tread pattern not the amount of tread they had left.

For an easy rule of thumb, mud tires suck on snowy roads, and All Terrain tires suck in mud. Those tires should be OK in rainy weather, but not as good as an All Terrain tire. Rule #2, mud tires are louder than All Terrain tires.

Are these just considered mud tires? Or do they have a certain name? I was under the impression that mud tires are usually wide

Large and solid angular tread lugs means mud tire to me.

They can be grooved or siped. Look on the side wall and make sure they are made for the road/dot tire or it will say off road use only. If its ORO, Most likely a titan tire. Good luck either way

I'm more interested in the Jeep. Looks like a CJ6.

Looks like a narrow mud tire to me. I like their looks.

Have a tire store add sipes if you want wet road and Winter traction. Sipes help a lot. Then you'd have a cross breed between AT and MT, IMO.
