Opinions needed

Im running the 35x12.5 r17 GY MTR right now on my 2012 jku they are great when im offroad, but riding on the highway they're pretty rough which i figured I was going to get with that tire. But im debating between the BF goodrich A/t or the toyo m/t. how well do they ride compared to each other? I know one is an all terrain and one is a mud terrain but Ive heard great things about the Toyo riding really well on the highway and it looks alot better than the BFG. But suggestions between the two would be awesome. Thanks

Check out the Cooper STT. Great tire.

If you're leaning toward an all terrain then check out the Hankook DynaPro ATM. Fantastic tire. I've had 2 sets with 0 complaints.

I'm running Hankook's DynaPro MT right now. Only have about 2K on them so can't give much advice. Pretty decent so far. A lot more quiet than you'd think and very smooth. The only time you feel the tread is just before coming to a stop or just after leaving one.

Lord, give me patience. I'm afraid that if you give me strength I'll need bail money too.

What pressure are you running the MTRs at on the road?

Thanks for the suggestions.. im running 30 psi in the mtr's right now. I know the max pressure on the tire is 35. wasnt sure if going any lower would help that at all.

28-30 seems to be what most people run for that size.

I have the BFG ATs and put a lot of highway miles on my jeep with no complaints. They are quiet smooth and wear well. They still do good off road as long as there is no mud.

I have never had the Toyo MTs but I believe they are load E which shouldnt equal a smooth ride unless your jeep was fairly heavy.

the bfg tires run pretty small for their size. beware of that if that matters to you.

they tend to be really good as far as tire life goes, people report 50k miles on them all the time.


however, me personally, i would go with the toyos.

I have 37" MTR's and they ride great...lower the pressure.

IMO the Toyo's MT...lousy...

KX Krawlers

Can't say enough good things about my 37" BFG KX Krawlers! @ 28 psi, ride is cushy without being mushy on the fwy. at 80, but a little noisier than my previous KM2's. Off road, they are legendary in the rocks!

Also consider Nitto Trailgrapplers. They're a great all around tire.
