tires for my frame up restore

Anyone have any recommendations on some good all-terrain tires (35's) that produce the least amount of road noise? I am documenting my frame up restore with a fiberglass body. I am pretty much replacing every thing. If you get a chance take a look. http://www.jeepheads.com/buildup.html

Re: tires for my frame up restore

IMHO the best AT tires out there are the BFG AT's

It looks like you have a really nice Jeep going acording to your web page. Looks like it could be a real show stopper. But that Red CJ "Before" Pic looks pretty good. Ether way, cool project, and cool Jeep.

I agree with the BFG AT's. I had 33's on my 85 Bronco and you couldn't hear them at all. The MT's are a MUCH better off-road tire, though. And as noisy as a jeep is anyway, I don't notice them on my CJ. They're 33's, and as long as they are up to street pressure they're fine. They handle well, too.

I will third it, if you want an AT go BFG. Good in snow and pretty low on noise. Not much of a mud tire though.

Re: tires for my frame up restore

BFG's are going to win this pissing contest. You might want to look at other brands just to be different, but I've seen other poles on this topic and it's always BFG's.
I have the MT's, but even those are pretty quiet with a hard top. Highway sucks because of size and gearing. They bounce at 70-75mph, but I only could do that going down hill. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

BFG AT's, I guess you have already heard that. If you want a more rugged looking TSL for the street look into the Thornbirds. Although they are not radial. What are you doing with all those good looking parts your replacing? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
