Has anyone ran these in stock size on a WJ Grand Cherokee? I was looking at them last night, and I'm thinking I would like to pull the trigger on these this fall when my Goodyear SR-As finally crap out. I run my WJ stock, although I'm going with a 2" BB at the same time I do the tires.

well personally i think the MTR is a better tire..it probably will last a little longer too..however the price difference may be an issue...but what i am doing is getting retreads from this place called treadwright.com they are based off of the MTR pattern and they are about $90 a tire for their special kedge grip...i have heard many good things about the treadwear and life of this tire

So, how about some more feedback. Ive been looking at getting these for a couple of months now, but the Wallmart only idea has me worried. Its either these or some Toyos. Fill us back in guys.

Geez, five pages of feedback isn't enough?

I still got mine. They've been doing DD duty and a little playing when I have time. I'm still happpy with my purchase. Money was tight at the time of purchase and winter (and State Inspection) was around the corner. Even today, with a little more coin in my pocket, I would still purchase them.

Although they trails I wheel aren't extremely rocky (or at least not loose rock), I still haven't gouged one. They're wearing good, and should last me until I'm ready for a serious upgrade.

Tires are a compromise, period. Ask yourself honesty where you are willing to compromise.

I was looking at these Authorities in WalMart the other day in a 265/75/16. I never realized before that they had the mountain snowflake symbol on them. Have they always had that or is it new? Seeing that really moved them higher up on the list for me. So did the fact that the one I looked at said Made in USA on it.

I looked at both the C load range and the E load range, there is quite a bit of difference between the two. The C is much squishyer with softer sidewalls. The E is also a 3 ply sidewall versus a 2 ply sidewall for the C. So I don't know which route I would go if I got the Authorities. But I'm in no rush and I'm still looking at Duratracs and Destination MTs and even Hankook Mts. Plus others. But I'm keeping these on the list for now.

Good to hear. I just have a hard time trusting anything that comes from Wallmart, especially when they are they only provider of it. Good to hear that they are working well on your vehicle. I think i might bite the bullet soon and get them.

PS you can never get enough feedback.

Today I went to Wal-Mart and purchased 4 Wrangler Authorities LT245/75R16 load range E. The counter guy said they might not be able to mount them for me but a tech came out and told him it was no problem, afterall, 255/70R18's are stock on the Sahara, and according to his book, the TJ Rubicon comes with 245/75R16 so that was enough justification for putting them on my stock RHD wrangler x mail truck. I hope they wear well. The installation and Life-time balancing were FREE through September. Man did those stock wrangler ST's suck!!! They have about 25,000 miles or less on them (2 out of 3 winters I ran snow tires) and are all they way down to the wear bars and then some. My 05 RHD TJ came with Wrangler GS-A's I think, and they were fine at 25,000 miles, not great tires but at least they had some decent treadlife.

Well i just picked up 4 of the 31x10.5x15's and mounted them on my XJ. Didnt get hassled or questioned about my factory tire size or nothing. Look great, low noise, and seem to not be wearing down at all. All good news i guess. I took them on some rocky mountain roads over the weekend and so far they still look sharp.

I hope to be picking up a set for my WK. I think I am going to go with 245/75/17 to avoid having to install spacers, and since I dont go Jeeping alot, I don't think I need the wider 265 tire. So, what load range should I get for the 05 WK?
