Anyone using those tires? Thinking that once I throw the Rubi unlimited springs on I may go to a slightly taller tire over stock, 285-70-17.

Can get those Nitto's for $175/tire. Wondering how they work in the snow/mud.

The order of elements my Jeep would see is this:

Pavement, Snow, Beach/Sand/Mud.

I'm running a set of stock Rubi's right now, and love'em, but I'm thinking they're going to be expensive to replace when the time comes, so I'm trying to figure out what kind of tire I'll go with next. I'm pretty set on the 285-70-17 size, unless someone has a better size for a basically stock height Jeep. (Maybe an inch or so of lift from the Rubi Unlimited springs onto my 2dr.)

I'm running those tires in 285/75R17 and I love them. I am only using them on the street for a DD and i've got a set of 33x12.5R18 Nitto Mud Grapplers for when I go trail riding. The mud grapplers are on the stock sahara rims. So I don't know how well they would do in mud, probably not good at all since they are a not aggressive A/T. I would def recommend them for daily driving though as i've got about 12,000-15,000 miles on them right now and can barely tell they have worn at all from new. They are also a great look as they are a 34x11.5 size.

Excellent in rain,snow and dirt. They suck in mud. Probably the best tire I've ever ran in the snow. Definately better than BFG A/Ts.

They'll do about 95% of what the stock BFG M/Ts will do.

I have them in 325/70-17. They suck in the mud, the factory Goodyears were just as good in the mud. They are ok in sand and dirt and good on the hwy. They seem to wear pretty slow, unfortunately because I can't replace them with Mud Grapplers until these wear out.

Ran them on my tow rig for a couple years. Great in the sand when taking the quads out to the dunes, very quiet on the road. But the diesel kinda overpowered them, so I had lots of tire slippage on wet pavement. I may toss them on a set of rims for the JK, and throw a small lift to see how that goes.

I've had them on my jk for the last month or so. I'm very happy with them. They work very well in the snow. We've had 5 inches in the last few days, and the nitto's worked out great. Great road manners. Haven't had the chance to try them offroad yet.
