tire recommendations for a JK

I am going to be putting a Terflex 3" lift on it, and throwing some 17" wheels/ 32" tires. I am wondering what a good A/T tire is for a vehicle with this setup? it will be 70% road/ 30% weekend warrior on trails in the backwoods. No rock crawling or mud bogging.

I highly recommend that you go for BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A K02 Tires. They are the perfect on and off road tires.

Your JK already has 32" tires if you have the Sport S or higher trim level. As far as a good AT tire...there are lots of options but some are slightly better for certain conditions than others. Is your part of Cali dry? If so, just about any AT tire sold today will be great. Sloppy conditions require certain tread patterns though. The KO/KO2 tread pattern generally sucks for mud and snow.

I don't have the sport S, I have 30's on right now. I live in Fresno, but I will bringing my yeep up to the mountains on trials and stuff through creeks and ****. So I want a tire that will handle well in those conditions

I am also considering jsut going with mud tires. Someone told me that there are certain mud tires, that don't wear too much on the road and aren't too loud.

The A/T they sell comes in three flavors... there is the normal one, the ones with even deeper tread, and then the "xtreme" version with wider void between the lugs. They are all the same tire...just slight changes to tread depth and spacing.

If you get, say, a 33x12.50 it's likely going to come in the xtreme version, but a P245/75-16 will just be the normal version.
