best tires for my cj7

ok guys i have an 84 cj7 that i recently did a frame up resto on. I have a 4 inch bds lift on the way with 1/2 inch lift shackles too and its time for new tires i want 33's no bigger because i don't want to fry my clutch or have to regear. i was looking at the new general grabbers not the AT2's but the new inspired ones i like that design and the price isn't too bad, what I'm asking is what is the best aggressive AT tire or MT tire out there?

What are you looking to spend?

I really like my BFGoodrich KM2's and I know many people that are happy with the BFGoodrich AT's.

i have the bfg AT's now and there ok but they do not have an agressive sidewall thats what i like about the genereals they have a lot of tread on the side wall and nothing more than 300 per tire preferably 250 per tire

I would definitely say to look at the BFGoodrich KM2's.

I use them on the road, for rock crawling, for mudding, and of course mall crawling.

They've yet to fail me and they're well below your price, and I think 4wheelparts is having a special on tires right now. I know I got mine for 170 a pop around christmas.

Hankook Dyno Pro MT. Great all around tire. Very aggressive. Excellent in rain, snow and mud. Have a very lug. They are great pn the highway and very noisey. They are cheaper then the big names, and in my opinion better.
I also like Kumko tire. Theu have wome noce ones as well.

fyi just read a test in jp mag the general grabbers are next to bombproof but HEAVY ,96LBS PER TIRE/RIM . That was 28lbs more than a good year duratrac and on the dyno showed a loss of 6.78hp and 5.97lb-ft overall if you have a v-8 big whoop i say but if u have a 4 0r 6cyl might
make a huge difference

Thanks that's good to know. I have a 6cyl but it has a header and a weber on it. I really like the design of the grabber and if it's race inspired than it must be a pretty well designed tire.
