Wj buying tires but dont know where to begin

Hello. I am currently in the process of searching for some bigger tires 265/70/16 for me JEEP. I am installing a 3 inch Kolak lift..parts on in route . Back to the topic im searching Pepboys.com because theres one near my house.. once you get on the site and select the tire link it prompts you with come questions such as,

"Select the option that best describes your tire"
(p) passenger or no letter
(lt) light truck/suv
I dont know
(LINK HERE http://www.pepboys.com/tires/sbs/265/70/16/)

i clicked on suv then it asked something about psi.
(heres the link to that) http://www.pepboys.com/tires/sbs/265/70/16/LT/

i have no clue what im doing. I have never purchased any tire size that was not originally stock on any of my vehicles so i have no idea what to select for these options. Thanks guys!

If you just go through it and click "show all" the only tire they offer in that size is Michelin LTX.

What are you planning on doing with your jeep? Do you want an aggressive MT, a street tire, or an all-terrain?

Treadwright.com is the way to go IMO. Very best bang for your buck.

I have heard less-than-stellar reviews on Pepboys brand tires, especially if you plan on doing offroading. I have read that they are very thin and the sidewalls can easily rip. I would recommend looking on craigslist or local used tire places if you want to save some serious money.

Good luck!

i live in New York City so theres not much offroading here but i do plan on doing some wheeling in other areas. Maybe all terrain tires will be a good choice.

I would recommend these https://treadwright.com/p-100-245-75...den-a-t-c.aspx

Same tread pattern as these http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes, but half the price.
