First off, let me say that;
1. There are a shit load of choices
2. Tires are fuckin expensive...
Anyway, moving on, I'm getting big boy tires. Just when I think I know what I want, something else comes up. I'm looking for 35x12.5x15 tires for my '11 JKR. I had it pretty narrowed down to the Maxxis Trepador Radials in the size I wanted. But, with the Canadian dollar taking a dump, they've moved into the same price point as some of the more hard core offroad tires. So, my choices now are down to MTR's, Trep's, (bias non comps or the radials) and a set of TSL radials that a buddy has (bought then new, mounted them and now wants bias). I'm seriously considering the TSL'S, even though they are 36's.
I drive the Jeep around 10k miles per season (April till November). Ice and snow isn't a concern, I'm going with a seperate set of tires for winter. Anyone have experience with the Interco's? I know the design is as old as dirt. But they seem to work. Any others I should consider?
I just bought some Maxxis Buckholtz(Bighorn) 315/75/16s for a pretty good price, but at the same time I was also considering stepping down to a 15" wheel, so was looking at 35/12.50/15s
I came across some GT Adventuro MTs for around $15X.00/ea on ebay(like everyone else on ebay, was a retailer simply selling stock...nothing special).
I have experience with the GTs, in the form of 305/70/16s and I felt they had every bit of traction in the sand-on-garage-floor, hard-pack, silt and sand-type terrain we have here in SoKal, as any other tire I've owned in recent memory(Trail Grapps, BFG ATs,MTs, Pro Comp XTs).
I did some research on 'em before I bought them, which consisted of searching them on here and other OR websites, and it seemed that others really like(d) them as well.
