They're 33x12.5R15 Goodyear MT/R Kevlars.

I've heard varied results about how long they last. Most people, if I remember correctly, said around 40k-60k, but don't quote me on that. I love the tires. They're pretty quiet, though they're brand new, so that's expected. In mud, they're awesome. I've only done stuff in 2WD since I need a new front driveshaft, but I can get through more mud with these in 2WD than I could with my old 225 Kumho Solus tires in 4LO.

I got them from a local place called Gogel Auto for $205/tire. On Tirerack they're about the same, and you can get an $80 rebate I believe, but you have to pay about $100 in shipping. I got them locally since they also mounted and balanced them.

I wouldn't recommend the BFG A/T KO tires if you plan on wheeling. A bunch of kids at my school have them, and they turn into slicks in mud. They don't clean out well at all. For a street tire, I know they have pretty long tread life. If you don't want to spend the money on mud tires, I've heard awesome things about Goodyear Duratracs, which seem to be all around way better than the BFG A/Ts.

I think the $600 was about the purchase price of my Jeep. And yeah, I'm surprised your tires still exist considering how you beat on them lol

I finally got a new driveshaft. Got a ZJ in the back now and XJ in the front. Both have good CV joints, but I'm getting some slight vibes in the front, but only sometimes. It's always between 25 and 35 on the speedo (between 29 and 40 actual or so), but it only happens sometimes, with no noticeable pattern. Also, sometimes when it vibes, it clicks a bit. I'm going to grease it and tighten the bolts again tomorrow, but I think it could possibly be pinion angle. I took some pics:







Let me know if you guys think the pinion angle needs adjusting. I think I gotta point the pumpkin up a bit.
