Goodyear Tracker 2 tires

I am going to be getting new wheel and tires soon. I'm going to be remaining on stock suspension for now, but will eventually go for a 2" BB. Im going w/ Black Cragar soft 8's 15x8, 4in BS with 30x9.5x15. I want a good all terrain tire with a somewhat aggressive look. I love the BFG AT KO but they're expensive so I'm still searching. I saw Goodyear Tracker 2 and Uniroyal Liberators at Walmart for a good price and wanted some pics on vehicles but can't find any at all. Anybody have any pics of either of these? Any reviews?

I dont have any pics of my Trackers i had on my old chevy, but I will tell you that the things lasted forever. I worked the piss outta that truck, and i hated those tires, just because i wanted to go bigger. For the tread life, they can't be beat. For their traction, they suck on anything except dry pavement.

I haven't tried either but would DEFINITELY go for the Liberators over the Trackers. I've heard the Liberators are pretty good for a cheap tire and they're not a terrible price.

I would rather go with the liberator instead of the tracker 2, liberator is a little more agressive and the plys seem to be a little thicker. I believe the liberators are slightly cheaper also.
My roomate who worked there used to run them and was happy with them. Good quality for the price.

I really like the BFG A/Ts but they run about $150, luckly my other roomate who worked at Discount tire gave me another set for free.

I just took a set of 30X9.5 Liberators off my '99 TJ, got 38K out of them, good handling, no cupping or feathering, very little highway noise, very satisfied. I got a super price deal on a set of Dayton Timberlines for replacement, otherwise would have stayed with the Liberators.

Ehh, I know this thread is old, but thought I'd put my in, haha.

When I got my Jeep, it had almost-brand-new Tracker II's on it, only about 6k miles on them, and there was still a lot of tread left on them, obviously haha. Anyway, I've had my Jeep for almost 9 months now, and they are almost bare! I go wheelin' maybe 6 times a week, tops, so I'm not sure why they wore out so quickly. My Jeep is aligned, and the tires were balanced, so not sure exactly what caused it, but I wouldnt recommend the tires.

I've had both Liberators and Tracker 2's

Had the Liberator Tires on my Jeep Liberty for 40,000 miles plus. They're a good tire, BUT.....they are hard to balance. I always had a bit of steering wheel vibration even though they were correctly balanced. It was the same kind of vibration I had with the original Goodyear Wrangler tires. The tread on the Uniroyal Liberator wears like iron, but they are NOT good on ice and snow. I ended up in a slide off accident because they lost their grip in only a small amount of snow.
I now have the Goodyear Tracker 2 tires on my Liberty. First thing I noticed is that the steering wheel vibration is gone. I have a much smoother ride. If they wear well, and are better in snow than the Liberator, (most any tire would be), then Goodyear Tracker 2's will be a great deal.

When i had my s-10 blazer i put a set of 31/10.50/15 liberators on it from the local walmart and i loved these tires,they were great in snow and less money then goodyears, and they wore really nice,an all around good tire except in mud,but they were not designed to be a mud tire,I have the goodyear sr-a tires on my current GC and i donot like them at all but since i plan on 4in. lift and bigger tires i will live with them for now
