Wheels and Tires
I have an 09 Liberty sport. Shortly after I bought it I bought the 18" chrome wheels that are an option on the Limited(They are also avaiable as a Mopar accessary) and of course I had to buy a set of tires as well. I got the Goodyear Fortera. I have had these wheels and tires on the vehicle for about 25K miles and they are starting to show some wear and they do make more noise then they did when new. The problem is there are not many tires that come in the size you need for the 18" wheel and no AT tires are avalible in this size which is 235/60/18. The question I have is I am thinking about putting the 16" wheels back on at least for the winter, but can't decide which tires to buy. I am thinking about the Bridgestone dueler AT or the Wrangler silent armor 235/70/16 or should I just stick with the 18" chrome clad wheels. Any thoughts?
The Forteras will be garbage in the snow. The Bridgestone Dueler AT REVO 2s, The Wrangler Silent Armor ATs, Firestone Destination ATs and General Grabbers are all the most common choices and receive the best reviews

The Goodyear Triple Tread would be a good choice on 16". Top rated on the Tire Rack site. I had them on my Cherokee, good performance and very quiet. To bad they don't make them in 18". FYI I live in Minnesota and we do get snow.
