Help me pick tires...
Really wanna run 35s but right now I don't have the extra coin for steering and gear install with 33s at least I can run them for a little with stock gearing.

So here are what I'm thinking...
33x12.5x15
Duratracs
Km2
Mt/rK

I had the duratracs and loved them! They were great on and offload. Seriously thinking about them again!!
Km2 everyone loves them, but they are $40 more a tire.
Mtrk know lots of people like them, doubt I'll get them but I figured I would get some info about them.

Let me know what ya think!!

I don't have experience with any but personally I think the km2s look mean! Just my opinion though, I'll stick to my $460 a set(33s) treadwrites

Just so you know, wearingthins mtrs and my km2s are both wearing on the front passenger side outer because we haven't gotten propper alignments. I dd my xj 60 miles round trip to work everyday, then whatever driving I do that night, or out of town, and my km2s still have more tread than his mtrs in that bad spot, and he doesn't dd his xj even near wht I de, since he has a normal dd.

The mtrs are nice, and I may run them in 37s, but it will most likely be the crawlers.

idk a lot of people say goodyears suck and blah blah and there only good for one year, but i have always had good luck with them. my duratracs were great and had an even wear. i also rotate my tires a lot. so that helps and make sure the jeep has a proper alignment, which also helps a lot. also make sure the tires have correct psi too. so i believe that helps a lot also. my dad has the RTS on his jeep and they are holding up great. they have low tread from 45k miles but they still ride and handle good considering the milage on them. i just might give the MTRs a try. i had the KM1 on my black jeep for a little and they didnt impress me, and there A/T sucks too lol idk. to each their own, not saying anyones is better or worse.

Shouldn't be that bad, have yu put it in gear calculator? With my 5.13s and 37s I should only push around 2200rpm at 60ish. I'm probably wrng about that though, its been a while since I was on gear calculator.
