Tire recommendations for PacNW Wheeling wanted
 
Hey all. I will be stationed at McChord here shortly and am wondering what kind of tire you would recommend? I have two different rigs with two different needs. One is more of a road rig ('90 4Runner) that might see some beach time and snow and ice up towards Ranier and the passes as well. The other is my JKR that I plan on wheeling like crazy. I have been wheeling in Utah for the last few years and am now unsure of which tire would be best for the terrain up north. I know that tire choices are subjective and based off of opinion, but that what I would love to hear!

I am looking at some AT's for the Runner and some MT's for the JK...of course.

I like my Iroks, they do everything great.

Iroks are awesome ive used them with great results but the tread life isnt good if you run them on road. I didnt have very good luck with the MT/R's with kevlar bought them new sold them less then 3 months later.

I have been running swamper ssr's for the last couple of sets and they work pretty well in most terrains. The price jumped a 100.00 per tire in the last couple of years so I switched to the MTR's and I really like them. They have worked very well in all terrain so far.

BFG All Terrains for the 4Runner.
Goodyear Kevlar MTRs for the JK

So people have good luck with the Kevlar MTR's? I was lead to believe that they were not so great in mud, which I will guess that there is quite a bit of wet terrain out there.

MTR's really popular, but you will have to pick the tire for you! What terrain do you plan on wheeling? There are so many great tires out there to choose from. I just got a set of duratac's , and I love them!

I picked up a set of duratrax just before Thanksgiving. They have been a great tire so far. Excellent in the snow and sand. Haven't had a chance to get them in too deep of mud yet but Id imagine they will do ok.
