Iam just getting ready to get in to the 4x4 life style, and i have a question about tires, iam planing to run a 99 xj with 3.5' lift and 31" tires, my question is what style tires are recomened, i want something that will performe good off road, but they have to do good on pavement too because its going to be my DD, any help would greatly appreacted, thanks!
Sounds like your interests are similar to mine. Since it's your DD, an All Terrain tire would be a good choice, however in mud and deep snow you would find it challenged, at best. I just recently got a set of Sigma Stampede Radial XT muds. They're just a rebadged Wild Country:
I chose a radial mud terrain because they will drive on road quite well and give you 30-40k out of them if you drive responsibly, maintain them well, and rotate them regularily (every oil change is good), and take you everywhere offroad but the most extremely deep mud and snow. You need a Swamper or tractor tire for that stuff.[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
Cooper Discoverer STT, BFG MTkm, any of the Wild Country RVT's, General Grabber MT's, ProComp MT, etc etc etc all work well. So are I'm not regretting my choice at all, and I haven't even been offroad yet other than my back yard.[img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
