tires

Hey everyone im looking at getting new tries for my 08 kk but not sure what ones. General AT2 or Copper AT&T Im looking at running stock size of 225/75R16. Im looking for some thing that is good on pavement but can run trails when I want to. Any help would be great. Thanks

I just ordered these for my '08 Liberty:

I can't give you any experience with them yet, but every review for them is awesome, and the price isn't bad at all.

I will be replacing mine as we get closer to those deep snow and cold ice winters here in Texas. I am going to go up to 235-75-16. Not much taller or wider, just a hair. I don't want anything too loud on the road nor to rough. I am looking at the Hankook DynaPro ATM RF10 which I have heard good things about or the BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain T/A. The Hankook has a better side wall grip and offers full siping of the tread pattern. Down side of going from 225-75-16 to 235-75-16 is I would also need to replace the spare tire due to size matching.

My '10 Lib came with stock 235/70/16 Good Year Wranglers. A couple posts mentioned that 245/70's would work without a lift kit and some minor rubbing (wheels turned all the way). If these tire last me 2 more years it would be great.

A good site to review tires is Tirerack.com and Discount Tire for a highway and all terrain.

Next set I'll look into Firestone or Bridgestone, Kuhmo or Michelin.

Good Luck :]

We just changed my wife's stock tires with Uniroyal Liberator A/T's in 235/70/16. Even she is happy with the way they ride and how quiet they are. They are agressive but not crazy agressive. Very good on pavement.

We got out the door at WalMart for less than $500.00.

The wife's stock Goodyear SR-A tires were bald at 32k. Just had them swapped out for a set of 235/70 R16 Bridgestone Dueler A/T REVO 2s.

I had a set of the original REVOs on my Cherokee and thought they were awesome. Very grippy in the wet and snow here in MN. So far, the REVO 2s have been just as good. Great tire for the money in my opinion. Got them for 176.99 each at Firestone with a discount coupon.
