    Best 33 to 35" Tires ?

    Looking to upgrade from stock.
    Going to add a lift so i already know about tires size vs fender rub.

    What tires are affordable and rated well. Looks more important then off road capabilities (want to mud but not crazy amounts of off road)
    I am looking for a beefy mean tire.
    Very much leaning towards the Nitto Grappler M/T. Been advised against the AMP tires.

    Thoughts on the BAHA, Hercules Trail Digger M/T, Federal Couragia M/T ?

    if you aren't going to use your jeep off road i would go for all-terrain, any of the brand name tires would work well for you. but if you want a mud tire I ran the BFG KM2 and was very happy with it in a 33.

    For a mostly road tire the Goodyear duratracs are a great compromise. They don't make huge amounts of noise, they look aggressive (particularly from the side) they are light and work decently well in the winter as they are a snow tire technically. They also seem to last decently long on a jeep.

    Down side is they are not the most aggressive tread but be honest with yourself how much wheeling will you do? The better a tire is off road usually the worse it is on road. The other down side is the side walls tend not to be strong, but that's why they are light and won't give you as much of a mileage penalty.

    I replaced mine with the Micky Thompson MTZs, I also like these but they arn't as quite or as light. They are however more aggressive off road.

    not sure if they are still available, but I had a set of Mud Kings on my '80 Bronco. tread like a super swamper. were killer awesome in mud. i got about 3yrs street use, every day out of them and sold them to a friend who got another year. for the money they cost, i have never had a better tire, except for my boggers that i got with another mud truck i bought.

    Rims look good, Tires are excellent choice, lift is junk haha

    If you only want a little 2.5" lift your best bet is a spacer lift to keep a nice ride those rough country coils will sag on the passenger side a bunch and ride like a wagon down the road. buy a quality 2" spacer lift if that's as tall as you want to go you'll be better off otherwise sounds like a good plan

    They call it ROUGH country for a reason. However you own it now. May as well install it then a year from now when it's shot and you can't stand the ride any longer... Decide what direction you want to go for upgrades.

    don't throw away your stock springs, you can install them later with the coil spacers.

    rough country always grabs the newbies attention, cause they're cheap. but use them for now since you've got them.
    if nothing else, you will gain a little bit of knowledge from installing them yourself, so you can swap them back out later, or go for something like the synergy stage one kit or terraflex.
