please DO NOT get the Goodyears........

you should know by now what tire i will recommend......the BFG A/T's.....you will get around 60,000 to almost 70,000 miles out of them if you take proper care of them.....

they are only $20 more per tire than those shatty Goodyears......more than worth it if you ask me.....and if you call Summit, they will beat Tire Racks price....

or you could also go with the general grabber AT-2.. which is a little cheaper then the BFG, pretty close to same tread pattern and just as good

Found some BFG M/T's in your town on craigslist

The guy just posted them yesterday. He wants 600 with the rims they are on. You'd probably be able to get the tires alone cheaper.

Don't get the goodyear, allot of people including myself have had problems with the silent armor technology.... I would say BFG, I have had them in the past on everyone one of my vehicles (all were 4x4, thats the only reason I don't have em now, cuz my truck is 2wd) and they have all lasted 50,000 plus miles...

The General's only come in 31's now. I was planning on getting them when I lift my truck. I guess I'll be going with the BFG A/T's

4wheelparts.com has "blem" ProComp A/T's for $90+ bucks for 33's. I was looking at them too

if you ever have a set of BFG A/T's you will NEVER want another set of Pro Comps.....i have had both, and i will NEVER go back to Pro Comp tires...

kumho road venture KL-78 has a very similar tread pattern to the wranglers youre looking at, and they seem to get pretty good reviews

I liked the ProComp A/T. Smooth and quiet on the street...trails for dirt...

I say try the different BFG and see you you like it in comparison.
