price, wear, and performance

hey guys, i recently sold my XJ and bought a tj! only bad part is the tires on it are toast haha

so i'm looking for recomendations:

-need to be at least pretty good in mud. i hate mud, but all we have around here is red gooey clay mud :/

-PRICE is a big issue

-tread wear- the budget is tight, and i'll need these tire to last as a go off to college next year and travel to/from school

if price is an issue, you can get a cheap MT but it wont give you the performance of something like a BFG or Goodyear. with that being said, you can get BFG KM2s for pretty cheap. firestone MTs are pretty good and cheap. There are plenty of options out there. just depends on what you are willing to spend. if you are on a budget, check out craigslist to see what you can find

yeah youd have to get pitbull rockers for that size in a radial. imo its worth it 100%. i had growlers on my old truck and i can personally say pitbull tires are great. im in construction. i drive all over. i got my jeep wk a month and a half ago and im already doing my first oil change. same amount of driving with my old truck that had growlers and they were amazing. both on and off road.

The Dura trac's seem to do decent off road and smooth on. Kinda splits a m/t and a/t. I had good luck with MTZ's, 46k out of my last set, But i had a good maintenance routine. I went with mt/r Kevlars this time to try something new, They are a real quiet m/t as well and has a good bite. They also have a rain strip to aid in wet weather conditions. In the rain and water they stick great, Haven't seen snow yet. Cooper STT's are another aggressive tire that will last and are more friendly on the wallet by a few bucks. They are similar to the MTZ. Good luck

MOPAR!
