best city slicker tires for my 2015 Rubicon

Howdy, picking up my new Unlimited Rubi (in tank, natch) Monday. First jeep in 25 years. I want my first round of tires to be smooth riding in the city till i get my bearings and grow a little peach fuzz to start off-roading with actual men. So, prolly a complete hater question, but what are the best city tires (and wheels?) for my new non-lifted Rubi for highway and smooth driving? thanks! and looking forward to more manly questions as i go...

Just keep the stockers on.....very road friendly, and if you venture off-road, or encounter tough weather, they are good security......no need to waste money on slicks.....when they wear out, you'll be ready for 35's anyway.

2015 2dr Rubi, manual shift, windows, and door locks, love this thing

I wheeled plenty with the stock rubi tires. Keep them and go wheel!

Super Swamper Boggers mounted to some RockStars. Sweet set up.

If the KM's are too noisy/knobby for his taste - the Bridgestone Duelers are a good on road tire, and have served me well on the trail too. The only weakness is mud. They are crap in the mud.

Buy a set of non-rubicon takeoff wheels/tires from someone who upgraded. Probably cheaper than new tires, and they will have wheels too.
