Get the Destinations. I love mine, they wear really good on the street and have good road manners, they just don't like burnouts

If your plannig on staying at that lift height, I would suggest going with the 245's. When I was at 2.5" I wish I would have gone with that size instead of the 265 75 R16. But now, I'm happy with the 265's at 4". The 265's will rub on the rear shocks which isn't a huge problem unless you have shock boots, they get torn up and will no longer stay in place.

Street mainly, But with me being relocated to WI, in june i thought i might get off road more. I have the boots on, so rubbing would be bad. So I think the 245 75 16 will be a good fit. I has 245 70 16 now, i dont know how they dont rub, or i just dont know they do. As to the lift hight, I will be at this for a long while. They will be going on stock rims.

I have a '00 WJ and i have a 2" BB lift and im running 245/75/R16 REVO's on it. They are a great tire. I know someone that has a set of them on a 4runner and has 95k on them. But it all depends on what you use your Jeep for. If it's a Rock Crawler then go w/ the Destinations but if its a MAll Crawler then go w/ the REVO's. But thats jus me!

I have Firestone destination MT's in 245/75/16 (31'') and I had to trim with 3'' lift. The firestones are abit bigger than other 245/75/16's, also 265/75/16's are 32's you will have to trim alot with just 2''s. Oh and Destination MT's FTW!!!! these tires are AWESOME offroad and onroad and wear like iron.

There is no way you will be able to fit a 32" M/T under a 2" lift, so go 245/75/16. As much as I love the Revos for a daily driver, if you off road enough you ought to be riding an M/T.

I had revo's on before, 245 70 16 we got 77,xxx on them and that was w/ bad shocks, before i put new ones on. I will stay with the 245 75 16 size, i think, as i dont want rubbing, I am leaning torwards M/T. All input is good. What is the ride diffrence between a ?Load range E vs. C on ride in a WJ?
