New tires for 2013 Durango Crew (replace 18" michelin latitudes)

I though the guys here with the 18" wheel package could chime in.

Ive been reading reviews on the Michelin Latitude Tour all over the internet.
People seem to have terrible experience with them on ice and snow. My wife drives the durango primarily and goes to a stable to ride/train her horse. There she drives in mud, gravel, sand, etc. the durango has trouble already in those conditions with no snow, ice or frozen mud thrown in.

Ive run winter only tires on my 2008 grand cherokee before and they were nice but a bit overkill.

Stock size 265/60-18
I'm looking at the Hankook Dynapro atm rf10. Its an all terrain.


Also looking at the cooper discoverer ht plus


Both tires get great reviews on and off road, snow, ice etc. Anybody here have any first hand experience with them? We have snow on the ground 6 months out of the year here. -40 in january. But the roads are clean 80% of the time.

I have used the Cooper Discoverer tires on a Chevy Tahoe and they were excellent. Good highway tire with little to no noise, and very capable off road as well. We live in Kanab, Utah. Lot's of sand and slick rock conditions. Lots of clay that turns slippery in winter after snow melts. Never had an issue with the tires and as soon as the Latitudes wear out on the GC I will probably replace them with another set of Cooper's.

Actually after looking at them, mine were the AT3 with the more agressive tread pattern than the HT+. I don't think the HT's would have worked too well for our conditions, they look more highway oriented.

I had the hankooks on one of my old trucks, I loved them never had an issue and got me through the things I needed to go through. I am fixing to order a set of the cooper discovery at3, because you cant beat the price after the 80 rebate they have going on right now.

Black 20s on 2014?

Hi all. I have a black 2014 limited and am considering swapping out the polished 20s for black wheels or having them painted. If I can't have them painted, I may just order a set of the black altitudes from mopar. Has anyone replaced their stock 20s with black wheels or had them painted? Any pics?

I was considering black also. Actually black chrome. Go on O.E. wheels llc. They have a photo gallery of jeeps with some black and black chrome.

^^^^ This, Duratracs are the best AT I've ever run. It's a plus that Good Year is an American brand. They're excellent for Winter too [severe weather rating], though I can't see where you're located from my phone. Nitto = Toyo (Japanese), but they supposedly do some final assembly for certain tire lines in North America; I'm just not a fan of giving them market share in yet another industry, when there are a lot of quality American brands. There appears to be a lot of cross-pollinization of labeling in the tire industry, so I do acknowledge the global sourcing and manufacturing aspect.

Cooper and General are good too. I'd go BF Goodrich as a 4th slot (Michelin - French).

New Jeep Owner!

So I just purchased my first jeep a week ago and I love it. I already changed up the wheels and tires. Let me know what you think!
