Looking into lifts and tires....

Well, I'm in the process of planning out my lift/ tires. Probably gonna do the 3 inch IRO lift and match that up with some 31s. But I'm not sure which tires I should get? Not looking to spend a **** ton either on them. I'm leaning towards the Grabber ATs cause I've read lots of good reviews about them. I'd like it to look aggressive but at the same time I have to drive this thing to work everyday and would prefer a quieter tire. You let me know what you think or have or have had and your personal opinions. Also guessing I should be looking at 265/75/16s or 265/70/16s?

Also time for a stupid question but whats the biggest difference between MTS and ATS? I guess I really don't understand the difference. MTS do better in mud but does that mean they do horrible in snow/ice/wet conditions?

you wheel it too from what I have read. might want to get a 3ply side wall. at least get the replacment warranty, though it must cover off road. our local dicount is off road friendly and they cover it if i tear it up, can't beat that for the extra 30$ each.

i just shoe horned on 15's with 35's on a 012. worked out great saved me tons of $.

Noise? what was that i can't hear you.

I'm trying to compare these two lifts and its a hypothetical at this point because I'm not sure I want to spend that much -ultimately I may be sticking with a 3 inch iro lift with jk discos and an adjustable trackbar.

mtr kevlar loud, i suppose but I cannot hear that over the roof rack, my son, the tunes or that guy behind me who seems somewhat agitated and keeps honking. After decades in Tucson on BFG and cooper Ats going to true offroad tires was huge. MTRs do not hydroplane like the ats did in monsoon season and yes I like to drive fast through puddles. How else do you clean the dash? I like um on the hwy and trail. MTRs and KM2s are popular with the Border Patrol and cowboys and those guys abuse their chit.

I run goodyear duratracs, they so far have been great, no hum on road and no loss off. Price is really good too.
