Tires

Goodyear Duratrac or Nitto Trail Grappler MT. I like the looks of the Nitto over the Goodyear but both are good looking tires. Anybody have either of these tires on their Jeep?

I have Duratracs on mine and love them. If you're gonna spend a good amount on the road, I would choose the Duratracs over the Nittos.

Nittos, Goodyears are like the Walmarts of this country, everywhere. I'd rather give another tire company a try. Haven't used Goodyears in over 10 years.

I've heard good things about the Nittos. I'm just researching all the tires until I get the cash to pay for them and the lift at once.

Big difference between the tires, mud tire vs all terrain. Will you spend most of your time on road? Do you offroad? If you do be aware the Duratracs have THIN sidewalls that will slice open if you do serious offroading. The trail grapplers are superior offroad, look meaner and have thick 10 ply sidewalls...however they are HEAVY. Also trail grapplers run true to size, where as duratracs run small (my 285/70/R17 Duratracs measure 32"). Like I said it's all about your needs.

If you're going to do more highway and use this as a daily driver, I'd suggest getting more of an all-terrain (duratracs are kinda mud terrain/all terrain hybrid) and this is coming from someone who uses duratracs on my WK as a daily driver. Maybe check out Cooper Discoverer AT3, General Grabber AT2, Hankook Dynapro atm, etc which are all reasonably priced.

The more I think about it I'll probably just go with a Terra grappler. Don't need the mud terrain. But they look better
