Kelly Tires SAFARI TSR (comments)

Found a good deal on a new set. Anyone have any experience with these? Like to know how they wear and handle.

Thanks

sounds like your jeep makes a good candidate to test these tires!

I just got a set of 265/75/16 and love the look and feel. Have not been off road yet but planning some mud time soon.

They balanced out easy and hardly any noise. Have about 34 psi of air but still might have to drop more to get a full contact. I got the C rated tires which seem just fine for the XJ rides much better then the KMs I had on the LJ.

update: Got about 7k on the tires. Been offroad some and their performance is great! They clean out well and keep digging when pulling through sticky mud. onroad is great but there is a little noise...about the same as BFG A/T. The sipping works great to help with wet traction. However, when in gravel they tend to pickup small rocks...no more then BFG A/T though. Running about 30 psi on the road for a 265/75R16.

Would I buy them again...hell yes!! In-fact I'm getting them for my new-to-me 07 JK in the next couple of weeks only issue is what size? 285/70R17 or 315/70R17

Great offroad look & performance with street manners!!

MADE by Goodyear.
Notice part #'s
###-###-### 9 digits, 3 sets of 3. Classic Goodyear. I think they come out of the Fayetteville N.C. plant.

Yes, and also Dunlop.
They also no longer manufacture "private label" tires although the do still do some "co-brands" i.e. Goodyear Wrangler Authority and Goodyear Viva, both Wally World/Sam's.

Curious, did you get the 'C' rated or 'E' rated 265?
