In need of tires!!!

I am in real need of some new tires. I am wanting a set that is a little aggressive looking like the cooper stt, toyo open country mt, tires that look like that. We use the jeep as a DD and we like to ride on logging rodes and trails and love to get out and play in the snow. I am running 265/70 16 at the moment but am thinking of a 31 10.50 size. The tires on it do not rub at all now and it doesnt have a lift. I am wanting to do a 2" lift in the next little bit. But anyway, can you guys give my some ideas on tires. I am so up in the air about which ones to go with I really like the toyo and I like the price on them better then any. I can get a set of Coope at3 for 610 mounted and balanced, but they are not the look I am wanting. Any input will be appreciated.

265/70-16 is 30.6x10.4 but in a 16 as 15s probably won't clear your brakes

The GY Duratrac's are a mean looking tire and do extremely well off or on road. They carry a 31 10.50

Go any bigger and you'll want to regear as well
265-70s and no lift? bet the inner fenders are screaming all the time

I would do the lift first, then figure on the larger tire. As Tomud, said you if you go bigger you may have to regear. Now as far as All Terrain tires, I heard good things about Duratraks, BFG's I think Cooper makes tire for BFG anyway Nitto make a cool tire, a co-worker has them on her Xterra and she said they're great. The Tirerack can also provide you with some review and pricing information.

Good luck

over 47,000 on my 265-75-16 Duratracs and still have a lot of wear in them.
I'm one of those guys who switches tires every 20,000 or so to try something different or bigger
The Duratracs have done so well in so many different situations I just keep on running them!

I went with the Goodyear Wrangler authority. 245/75 16. I was previously running 255/70. At 165 a tire I couldnt pass it up. I got a few miles on them and so far really like em. I cant say I love em because Ive not had them long enough. THey handle great and have very little road noise. Thanks guys for the input and help. I will post pics in the owners thread. Cant wait to start modifying i.e. lift, push bar, ski rack and basket rack, fog lights, cb, and whatever else I can muster up lol.

Thanks again

I had stated they I was running 265 in my first post sorry, I had made a mistake, I didnt want to seem like a lier. LOL

For those who have switched to a bigger than stock tire size, did u have to reprogram any settings so your speedometer stays accurate?

Also, if u change tire size, does that throw off your gas mileage calculator?

i didnt change anyhting with the speedo and yeah you will get less mileage. With the new 245/75 I got 16 mpg. That is around town and one evening pulling a big load of wood. SO I guess thats not to bad....
