It should say on the sidewall somewhere what ply they areI can show you better than I can write about the Goodyear Wrangler Ultraterrain AT tire. It is not even close to what you describe here. This tire is a beast, so aggressive there is no mileage warranty. You are right about it being a new tire on the market and only Discount tire sells them. I'm not sure of the sidewall ply, I was told it was 3 ply but I cant find the info in the sales literature anywhere. The salesman told me that 3 ply was exceptional to any Radial a/t tire. Most are 2 ply. Standard non radials may be as high as 10 ply.
I finally got them mounted a couple of weeks ago and also got my steel bumper put on too. I haven't even been outside in over two weeks to look at it since I can hardly walk that far anymore. The tires do look fantastic on the rig and for what I will be doing they are all I will ever need.It should say on the sidewall somewhere what ply they are
I personally think your jeep looks better with your new tires.Any brand name All Season is a pretty safe bet.
For most uses, as the OP states excluding mud and rocks, skinny rules. Light as in low unsprung weight rules. Go too big, too wide, too heavy, or to "LT Floatation" and the overall performance falls off. Floatation is only good where yo need floatation, like desert sand..... altho I'd rank desert sand in with rocks and mud and say on average no one needs floatation.
I'm an old guy, my first 4x4 was an M38 is Grade 11, 1971. I've done it all since then, always owned a 4x4. Over the past 5 years I've been downgrading the mods..... which I have discovered is actually an upgrade from all the stupid mods I've done over the previous 40 years.
From 35s I am now down to 31s, 7.50R16s. 12 pounds lighter than the 35s. And way better performance. I can hit standing water or slush at 70mph and not even notice it.... in a Wrangler. II gained 5mpg adding 95miles between my gas stops. I no longer slow or steer to dodge potholes, washboard. Light unsprung weight rules for comfortable overland travel.
The list of plusses to skinny pizza cutters is limitless. Even plowing thru deep snow I have far better control, at times I even have to wait for guys running floatation tire sizes to catch up. Good tires, brand names for sure, mileage guarantees are nice, price,,,, $$$ rule. My old BFGs lasted 75K kms. These skinny things have a 100K kms warranty plus they saved me 30%. So my tire costs are cut in half. I had that ego that told me you must get 33s, 35s, MTs, ..... all marketing hype. They stoke yer ego and open the door to the big boys club but honestly if performance counts and you are not into mud or rocks or sand.......... look for the skinniest tall tire you can find.... with a great warranty.

. .asking a similar latitude, as you don't know me or my sense of humor, butThe K02 is a great tire, but after seeing them on 2.5ton trucks with a 6" lift, a variety of hatchbacks and on-road utility vehicles, and the icing on the cake was a minivan I just can't bring myself to run with the herd. Let me repeat because no one here knows me or my humor yet, I know they're on that many vehicles because they're that good, not simply because monkey see, monkey do. But a minivan. A MINIVAN. A gawd dang minivan.
I currently run Falken Wildpeak's, because I wanted a C/SL load range tire. If/when I upgrade to E (once there's enough weight on the truck or we decide to start hauling a trailer behind us) I'm currently planning on moving to the General Grabber ATX.
It's a good tread pattern.. .asking a similar latitude, as you don't know me or my sense of humor, but
The atx and ko2 tread patterns could be mistaken for separated conjoined twins
Yessir correct. I'm mostly funnin'It's a good tread pattern.
Again, K02; very capable, very proven tire. The minivan ruined it for me. Also the sidewall treads on the Grabber are different so you can't mistake the two!
I can't remember which one, but it was an overlanding channel on YT that originally brought the grabber's to my attention. Iirc they were provided the tires for the purposes of selling the product, but the review seemed genuine. After that I started seeing them on a few other channel rigs, in a variety of tire comparison reviews, etc. They seem to have a good reputation and it appears to be as well deserved as the K02, they just don't have the marketing power of Ford and the Raptor behind them is all.Yessir correct. I'm mostly funnin'
Full disclosure, I've owned multiple sets of ko/ko2's, and now I'm rollin Generals (although not the atx)
I too like to buck trends, try new gear, and switch it up from time to time
Jordan, I think you are the same Jordan who has been selling me LRD2 parts recently ON CRAIGS LIST. Have you been selling parts ?Been running Duratracs for the last 3 years, on my Silverado and now my LR3. Great in all terrain and I use them driving 100 miles a day for work. Love them.
