Tires for Cherokee Sport 2000

Looking for new tires. Anyone tried the Goodyear Wrangler ArmorTracs for Jeep Cherokee. Don't do a lot of offroading. Just want something to last. Any comments?

Hahah!!
My dad has 235 GY Wrangler RT/S on his 2000 xj. they do very good all around, road, snow, etc. They have seen mud twice and that was to pull me out dad wasn't to happy tho. But the tires did great my girl friend just put 235 GY Duratracs on her 98 xj. They are very nice another good tire to look at...

I just drove home through a couple of inches of snow.

My Duratracs are performing great - I'm actually surprised at how much they hooked up when I hopped on the gas to test the road conditions.

I would not be able to recommend them if you are wanting a street oriented tire vs an offroad geared tire as thes tires will hum somewhat, and they will not last a long time due to their soft compound.

I had Goodyear Silent Armor's and they were very quiet and good in rain.
I now have BFG T/A KO's and they have been treating me well in. Got them siped as well.

Haha my gf has durtracs. They are very quiet. I'm guessing u never actually had a mud tire. And people are getting about 40-50k miles out of them which if u ask me is not bad at all.

My friend has Duratracs on his '01 Ranger. Very nice tires and very quiet compared to the snow tires he had on there.

I would also recommend the Michilin M/S2 or A/T2 both are great street tires that will last awhile.

I will second (third?) taking a look at the Michelin M/S2s as well. Michelin makes tires that tend to last a lot longer than a comparable Goodyear for the same price. My mother's XJ has had the same set of M/S tires for the last 45k miles and there is still probably 8/32s left per tire. They have great all weather road traction because of their multi-condition tread design that takes both rain and snow into account. The snow packs into the tread but water get channeled out. A lot of fleet vehicles you see running around use them for a reason.
