I prefer 9.5" wide for all purpose use on and off road on a daily driver. The 9.5 are very excellent on Winter roads. If aired down they are OK on sand. If not aired down, they sink to much on sand. My favorite sizes of 9.5" wide tires are 30 x 9.5 R15 and 245/75R16 (31 x 9.5 R16) load C.
For a list of 30 x 9.5 R15 tires see this thread: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f15/l...-zj-tj-1523888
Here is a list of 245/75R16 load C tires: Cooper AT3, Mastercraft AXT, Hercules AT2, and Duratrac. For more info about those tires see this thread: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f15/n...e-one-1527835/
I prefer 10.5" wide for all purpose use on and off road on a daily driver. The 10.5 are good on Winter roads. They are OK on sand if not aired down, but when aired down they are good on sand, IME. My favorite sizes of 10.5" wide tires are 31 x 10.5 R15 and 265/75R16 load C
Here is a list of 265/75R16 load C tires: Cooper AT3, Mastercraft AXT, Hercules AT2, Duratrac, and Mastercraft CT. For more info about those tires see this thread: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f15/n...e-one-1527835/
For those who like 33 x 10.5 R15 tires, have a look at BFG AT and Toyo MT. If you get Toyo MT, I suggest having the tire store add more sipes to center treads to increase Winter traction.
My favorite width for all purpose use is 10" wide tires aka 255. The General Grabber AT2 30 x 9.5 R15 is IRL a 10" wide tire. Duratrac 245/75R16 (load C) is IRL a 10" wide tire.
Perhaps you can find more 10" wide aka 255mm wide tires in load C.
I think load C is the best for a 1/4 ton SUV (like a Jeep).
