I just bought some Goodyear Wrangler Durtracs. I love them. Took them up a trail and went the whole way in 2wd. The best AT tire out there I feel.

i personally prefer the non bulky tyres cause they're better in the sand.

i have michelins mx2 now, and thinking of trying the cooper ht

if u have the 16s, you can go with 275/70 without lift.

I second volvite's opinion... I've had the Wrangler DuraTrac's on since the beginning of September and all I can say is, "WOW!!" Wet pavement, sand, gravel, mud, so far nothing has slowed me down. They ride pretty well, too, and don't have a lot of road noise. Highly recommend!

thx a lot everyone! i am either looking to get 275 70 R16 or 265 75 R16... anyone have some thoughts for the best look and ride??

decided it will probably be either the general grabbers or the wranglers.

Dang, I wish we were getting snow. I can't wait to try out my tires, and I love winter more than summer.

I'm sure it's just an optical illusion, but the back of that tire looks awfully close to that mud flap. Is it really that close?
