I think the Dick Cepeks are overpriced for what they are. You are paying for the name. Same with Mickey Thompson, they should have just stuck with drag radials and racing wheels.In the tire debate, I am seriously considering Dick Cepek Mud Country. I have heard really good reviews about them.
Personally, I have had great luck with the Gen2 BFG Mud Terrains which were on my 88XJ.
As far as today, I drove my XJ to work for the first time. Runs like a champ so far. See how it does after the first full tank of fuel has been ran thru it.
The BFG KM2s are a good tire, and the Duratracs are also a good tire. I'm not a Goodyear fan mainly because I have friends who work there and they tell me about the corporate issues, but the Duratrac is a very respectable tire.
