X-Terrain tires

Does anyone have anything good to say about the X-Terrain tires?

How are they for road use?

How are they for off-road use?

How long do the treads last?

Do you recommend purchasing these tires?

I have a TJ 97' with a 4" lift and 33 12.5 15x8 tires.

My brother in law has a set of 35's. He does not like them at all. Tread is not lasting long and he has not been impressed offroad either. The look is cool though. However, there on a F250

sorry

I had a friend blow two of them on the same day trip!

I have 35' Goodyear MT/R's and I would reccommend them to anyone! Gread on road even better off! I have had them on for over 15,000 miles and there is no noticeable tread wear. They have 3 ply sidewalls so you won't cut them on anything

Re:

Thank you for comments! I wasn't sure about the tires. I like the look but wanted to know more on the quality.

I already have the Pro Comp M/T and I am not unhappy with them.

I am coming up to the point of replacing them and wanted to learn more on some other types!

So again thankyou on your comments!

I second the vote on the Gooyear's. Damn good tire. I like the X-terrains look, but I have not had any experience with them. On another note, I have had bad experiences with 4 Wheel Parts in San Antonio ( I think they're the only place you can get Pro-Comp tires in this area).

I run the goodyear MT/R - again with the 3 ply sidewall and great
treadwear. I have used them on rocks/mud/street and I am very
happy with them. I would go with either the goodyear or the bfg
based on reputation - the truxxus also has a good rep from what
has been posted so far. - you might also search the lift/tires
forum for information.

I think that if you have any mud/wet ground involved, you might want to consider the Swamper TSL's. They are simply awesome offroad. I run 36's and have also run the 33's and loved every single minute of it!!

The Pro-Comp X-Terrains ARE AWESOME TIRES!! My dad has a set of 35's on his Jeep and loves them. Excellent on-road usage. No pulling at all in either direction. Not too much noise. I'm guessing tread wear is 20,000-30,000 miles. As for off-road, superb as well. They get great grip and and great mud traction. My dad turned ran a 125 ft. mud pit about 8" deep in 3.4 seconds. He has a 360 and the weakest axles that come in jeeps. I would recommend these tires to anyone looking for good on/off road usage and some sweet looking tires.

One thing nobody has mentioned is that the X-Terrains are directional tires meaning that you have to rotate them differently than non-directional tires. Also your spare will be a left or right tire (unless you have two spares).

Here's a positive vote for the X-Terrains. They have performed excellent for me off-road, in many different conditions. The directional tread is a draw-back, but I've had to run my spare on the wrong side, it works fine.
