Need tires (235/75/15) and a spot for light off roading

Looking for a set of 4(5) AT tires with a good amount of tread in tire size 235/75/15.

I am also looking for a spot to drive off the pavement for a bit, nothing intense. I just want to drive around some fields or through a small patch of forest.
I am located in Lockport, IL and I would be so happy if someone knew someone around here or knew of some land where the owner is okay with jeepers driving on it. I am a relatively stock XJ(DD) and it couldn't take the cliffs or bad lands.
I don't want to tear up any fields, I just want to coast around some offroad dirt roads or trails. I know there is a few I've seen around Lockport where jeepers have offroaded but I do not know if they were doing so legally.

One is off bruce road and oak ave, and another off the 355 exit on 159th street.

I know there are trails there but do not know who the owners are.

Any trails or tires would be appreciated.

You can take a stock xj to the cliffs no problem. Its your best bet at having the most fun, and it's completely legal, which is hard to find around here. Let me know if you are ever interested in going. Always looking for more people to wheel with

Thanks Eddie! I will do that. 13th is our First Beard competition for my local beard club so I might not be able to go then. But I am interested in a club.
