I bought the 33x10.50's.
Taller, lighter, etc.....
Read my build thread about why I chose that size.

Everything I need to fix on the heep: ABS indicator, speed 4 on the blower fan, torn softop over driver's head, both seat release/tilt cables, missing center cap on spare, broken under hood light, wire up the CB, wiring problem with the reverse lights, broken bottle jack, leaky front and rear pinion seals, loose trackbar relocation bracket, torn drivers seat on the side, broken center console lock, lost nuts for door hinges, squeaking centering ball, loose parking brake cable, oil change and rotate the tires.

X2. If you mount it correctly so the tire is tight against the body it will be fine.

like this...



happened kind of by default for me though. i got the bumper long before i got my tires (33x10.50) and the tire shop told me it wouldnt fit. i had them put it in the back and i went home and put it on myself. it rubs a little bit when opening and closing but its nothing that bothers me in the slightest. i actually like how snug it is.

back on topic now.

for the snowy and icy conditions you need a lot of tread contact and contact pressure. a skinnier tire will give you better contact pressure than a wider tire and one with a fairly tight tread pattern will give you the tread contact. as you can see in my picture above i have BFG AT's and they work great in snow and ice. they do okay on rocks but are clearly not a tire designed for rocks but they do have a very strong, 3-ply sidewall. in mud they pack up pretty quick and become slicks but theyre not the worst tire you could have in mud.

my vote goes to either the BFG AT for all-around performance (as per your criteria) and the BFG KM2 for better performance in the rocks and mud (youll lose a little in snowy/icy conditions though).

check out the Goodyear Dura trak's. they've been getting rave reviews by not only me but others as well! They are also pre-drilled for snow/ice studs for winter.

Wheel it like a rental car!
