Lets be honest, unless you are a millionaire, most of us are driving our rigs to and from work. What are everyone's thoughts on running 35s that are more multi purpose like an all terrain? Lets here about your experiences.

    1. Brand of Tire

    2. Model of Tire

    3. Size of Tire (and wheel)

    4. What type of driving you do with them?

    5. How are they wearing? (Mileage)

    6. Your thoughts on them

    7. How do they look??!!
    Goodyear

    Duratrac

    315/75/17 (stock 2013 Rubi wheels with 1.5" spacers)

    I do mostly city/hwy driving. I bought my current set beginning of October this year and have put 15,000 on them so far. They have been in about 1' of snow and did great. I was very impressed. Also on highway in snow, again handled great! I just drove from Vancouver BC to Palm Dessert California (roughly 4500 km) and they were very pleasant on the highway (both my wife and mother in law didn't complain!!). Not noisy at all. Also had them at Anza Borrego, didn't do anything too crazy but they handled nicely in the sand.

    Wearing normal

    I love them so far! Also love the way they look. Really cool tread pattern. I think they look great on the JK's

    Bravo on you sir for the extremely long trek with both the wife and mother-in-law in the jeep also! Nice jeep. I'm considering Duratracs or Coopers (maybe MT ATZ if I lean that way but not sure) when the time comes. Not really needing a full MT for what I do.

    Has anyone seen or run these?

    Cooper S/T Maxx

    I have had Cooper STT tires in the past in both 33" and 35" sizes and they held up great but I am trying to get better on-road performance without sacrificing too much.

    Another vote for the Terra Grapplers.

    They are quiet, long lasting (some have gotten 65k miles out of them), great in the rain, reasonably priced, and look pretty good too.

    I have had them on all three of my JKs and my Ram 1500 and I am absolutely a fan. I've been tempted many times to purchase a more aggressive looking tire, but the reality is , I really don't need an aggressive tire so i always come back to them.

    I can't comment on their mud or rocks performance because I simply don't use my Jk that way.

    I'm running the AT II on My Duramax they have about 11000 miles and are showing no wear that's good for a heavy truck the other sets I have tried showed signs of wear fast and they have been Great in the snow so far.

    Good Tire...

    We have those in 35s on our f250, and I HATE them. They seem to throw me all over the place. I won't drive over 70 with them on. Our old tires were noisier and a slight rougher ride but I could go over 85 without even noticing or being remotely scared. Our roads have a lot of grooves in them and these tires grip and follow those grooves. My husband loves them though.

    I ran the Discoverer S/T and the S/T Maxx on my '02 Z71. Got 65,000 miles out of the S/T, sold the truck before the Maxx's were wore out. I sell tires for a living and Cooper especially. I've seen a lot when it comes to tires as far as wear and longevity. The S/T Maxx is what we call a "hybrid" tire, just like the Toyo R/T and the Mickey Thompson ATZ P3. The Toyo R/T is overpriced in my opinion, especially when the tread depth is less than other competitors. If you wanted to go with an actual All-terrain, I would recommend the Toyo AT2 over the Nitto Terra Grappler G2, Nitto and Toyo are sister companies and the AT2 and G2 are in the same category, but I've seen the AT2 last longer and it looks a lot better in my opinion. Also as Eddie mentioned, they carry a 65,000 mile tread wear rating, which is hard to find in an All-terrain LT tire. I currently run the Cooper Discoverer AT3 in a 315/70R17 (discontinued in this size) with over 50,000 miles on them. They've served me well, but I will be going to the Discoverer STT Pro next since my Jeep will be seeing more trails and less highway in the near future.

    Also, a bonus to Cooper is that their world headquarters are located in the same state that your Wrangler was built!

    Thanks alot. I am glad someone finally said what I have been thinking for years. Nitto and Toyo make great tires but they are very overpriced in my opinion.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
