I would try the Toyo Open Country MTs. I just got them on and i tried them in the rain the other day and today they worked awesome i didnt slip at all. The only problem with the the tire is the lack of sizes available. I have 33x13.50 wide tires which i think is the smallest they make. Its great on road mud terrain with a quiet hum. Its also an aggresive looking tire also. so far i have no complaints

Its almost to the point of going to an AT but I dont want to make the offroad sacrafice.

The TrXus Mt's are sipped, plus they are the most sipped out of all thev MT tires out there, and so far they have worked very good for me in all conditions.

Not on my Jeep, but I just put some LT315/75R17 ones on my new Power Wagon. After about 7,500 miles so far, they're great. They run smooth and relatively quiet and perform really well on dry roads as well as wet or snowy roads. Where I live, we recently got about 18" of snow and they pulled me right up my uphill, 300-foot, unplowed driveway, although I did need 4WD. The only thing I'm waiting to see is how well they do offroad and how well they wear. Otherwise, I think they're a great tire. I've read good things about their offroad performance, but haven't yet taken mine offroad.

Kumho MT KL71

I just mounted these Kumho tires. Some folks asked for pics since we all have a hard time finding a good picture other than what TireRack is showing. The picture on tirerack makes this appear to be a low profile (bling, bling) type tire but it is not.

Dang. those middle tread blocks are IN LOVE. I guess that's why it's such a nice riding tire. How'd they balance?

The Kumho's balanced beautifully from what I can tell. These are a great option for a 32" tire and at $130 they are hard to beat

How is the road noise with them? Did you notice much of a power loss going from 30s to 32s?

Thanks

Very low road noise and that was one of the reason I chose these. They also handled great in the rain today.

I did see a power loss but this is not my DD and I have a 5-spd so I just plan on increasing the RPM's/Revs... If I blow the engine, I will look forward to putting in an 8-cylinder :-)

I do have the 4.11 gears and I think that helps get by with these 32"s

Looks good. Please post more pics of the whole Jeep with the tires on it. I'm thinking about these tires too. I didn't know they were even available in a 32" tire though. Glad to hear it.

The trxus tires ride pretty nice on the road. The ones i had rode like my kumho Mt's, very smooth. Yes swampers don't balance well and that goes for the trxus tires too. There are alot of balance issue posts regarding them, but then some had no issues.

I got the Kumho MT KL71's from TireRack. They had them the day after I ordered them.
