Couple of nice looking toys there in Texas.

I have the BFGs too. Nice all round tire and perfect size there.

Another Vote for Michelin LTX Ms's Tires are silent on the highway, they never hydroplane and I've taken them to the limit in the snow, in which they preform very predictably.

Has anyone tried General Grabber AT's? I like their look and it appears they have a good tread pattern. I like most am waiting for my current off-brand tires to wearout. They came with the J-10 and meet my needs. Somethings are about appearance and for me it includes the tires.

If you're referring to the AT2s, I had those on my WJ for a while. Best All-Terrain tire I've ever had. Fairly quiet, great handling, cheap, awesome in the snow, and yet they still looked pretty aggressive.

I agree just bought a 52 plate Grand Cherokee and first spend was on AT2s they do it all.
Now I need to sort the CRD's over fuelling black smoke ....any thoughts appreciated on where to start EGR or MAF or costly injectors. Would a diagnostic tell me where the problem lies???

The Tire Selector tool at Tire Rack is super helpful. Each tire they sell comes with several ratings, including noise. You can see how they stack up against the competition. Noise is a big factor with a truck tire for the street, along with wet traction, dry traction, etc.

Have these on Hubby's Cherokee, they performed most excellent last winter.

He runs the 31x10.5.

Between my PT GT and my Jeep I can outrun you or run over you - Your choice?

I still love my BFG KO ATs! I have them on both of my trucks. Great in the snow. No problems running them on the street, climbing curbs, crushing road debris and running over the posted speed limit.

I use Goodyear Wrangler Dura Track. It provides smooth performance on highway as well as enhanced traction in deep mud and snow.

The Dura Trac's and the Silent Armour are both excelent in the snow. The DT's are more "off roadish".
