I've been researching tires and will probably get as set of the Wrangler silent armors soon as the original tires are wearing out. I don't drive off-road much and it seems like one of the better all-around tires. My last ride had Pirelli Scopions which were great in the rain, but not so hot on icy/snowy roads.

Goodyear Wrangler Silentarmour P245/65 R 17. It's a 4x4 jeep. Go with a good AT tire for when you need it you have it.

I did return the 265/70/17 AT tires I had and got TOYO Open Country 255/70/17's. The TOYO's are awesome! They're lighter and more quiet. Perfect fit!

Hey Floof, let me know if that tire diameter works for you. I am looking at a similar tire in those specs. Let me know if you have any rubbing, and what & any mods you may have..... spacers, bolt cut, lift....etc.

Would like to know if that tire is too wide and diameter too big.

When I bought our WK it was a certified Chrysler vehicle and they put a new set of tires on it...same as in the above post General Grabber HTS...very good all season tire...quiet and good wet traction...I also got a set of General Altimax snow tires (studded) for winter use that I am going to have mounted on steel wheels for winter....BTW for those interested...there was a steel OE wheel used as a spare on some WKs...I got 4 of these from a ChryCo dealer that sells over the internet...best part is that they are hub centric wheels with the exact same off set as the OE alloys and they were only $77 each....some don't like the look of the steel wheels but for winter use they are better...save your nice alloys and if scratched can be easily touched up with black paint!

I am about to buy 4 new tires and am curious what you guys use
Wanted Brdgestone Revo's or Goodyear Fortera Silent Armor's to replace the OEM Fortera HL's. That's what many on this forum recommended. Fortera's lasted 40K miles. However, the Fortera HL's wore faster in the last 4K miles than they did at first. Expected to buy new tires in the Spring, but they degraded too quickly.

Neither the Revo's nor Silent Armor's were in stock when I needed them this Winter. Went with Goodyear TripleTred's that were on sale (in the stock 245/65R-17 size). [Got $20 Goodyear rebate also. ] My driving is on road, so these have been OK so far.

BTW: My full-size spare has a steel wheel and doesn't match the 7-spoke Al ones. I left that as a Fortera HL since it is unused.

'08 WK GC Limited. 5.7L HEMI. Quadra-Trac II. Bright Silver Metallic. Class IV hitch.
Michelin LTX M/S tires. Fumoto oil drain valve. Billet Technology oil catch can.

if i can find a picture of a wk that look good with 15s on it im gonna go pitbull growler all the way. aggressive enough for the mud at the jobsites i go to (i had a set on my blazer, i drove through such thick mud and everyone elses work trucks with other tires were covered in mud, mine werent) but not too aggressive for the beach.

if 15s look like dookie on the wk, im gonna go with goodyears or general at2, maybe trail grapplers. im trying not to go over $200 a tire.

so lets recap:
-pitbull radial growlers @ 31 x 10.5 (if 15's wheels look good, thats the only size they make them in radials)
-general grabber at2 in 255x75

I replaced the junk Goodyears on my WK with BF Goodrich Rugged Trail T/As , I kno wmany will say its not a true AT tire, but IM fine with that. I log a ton of miles commuting and these have been a very good road tire so far. Far exceeding the stock GY Wrangler SRAs in any conditions, dry, wet, snow and ice, these Rugged Trails have been way better, and they are nice and quiet!

We've had the Fortera HL's on it for the first 93K miles.. been okay.. light trails and such, nothing heavy.. worked fine..

Time for some new tires again.. looking ahead over the next few months, we plan to do mostly pavement runs.. so I looked into something that can handle the load weights, the speeds, and the mileage we plan to put on it..

Pretty new to the market (released 3 months ago).. but we decided on Nitto NT421Q's 109H, same size and speed rating as the HL's.. 245/60R18 130mph... but a better load capacity. 75K mile manufacture warranty.

$608 +tax to get 4, have them installed, and get a prorated lifetime warranty on them. Discount Tire.

I ran a Ford F-250 super duty diesel and chevy silverado 2500 for work over 600,000 miles with Dynapro MT's... NEVER had a moment I didn't like them..
I worked on cell/tv/radio towers across the country.. easily 250,000 of those miles off-road.. in ALL conditions.. DEEP mud, snow, sand, manure.. up mountains, down mountains... making my own roads often.

Had the AT's once because they didn't have the MT's in-stock and I needed tires THEN... HATED them..

The MT's are pricier.. by a bit.

Wow - this one's been brought back from the dead. Lol

I put Goodyear Wrangler Authorities on my WK.

265/70/17 load range C.

Driven 1000s of miles.

Towed 1000s of miles.

Wheeled the crap out of 'em.

Very good tire for the money - very good.

Only complaint I have, if you can call it a complaint, the side walls flex a lot when aired down. 18-20 psi is what I deflate to when I wheel. Any lower and it just exposes too much side wall. That being said, they have served me extremely well in all weather, conditions, and type of use.

.......and yes, they are a Walmart tire and that does not bother me in the least. :-)
