This is more of a question for those who have been to Alaska.
As of today my original tires, BFG MT are in good shape with 21k miles on them.
In June I will leave on a 10k mile trip to Alaska and back, guessing tires will have 30k miles on them, so still good tread (?). In March/April I will need 2/3 tires to use on a trailer that will follow my Jeep to Alaska. Originally, I had thought about replacing the Jeep tires in June just before leaving and using 3 of the old tires as trailer tires. But, I will need trailer tires earlier and a friend got me thinking that my current tires could make the trip to Alaska and back and still have some tread left.
Should add, the trailer is an off road trailer, 700-1300lbs, so trailer spec tires are not needed. Wheels are AEV 8.5 x 17 that I got really cheap.
So the question is,
A) stick to original plan and get new tires for the Jeep, use current tires for the trailer?
B) use original tires for trip & find some good used tires and put them on the trailer?
