I am in the process of buying new tires for my jeep. I am looking at 35s on 15 inch rims.... any suggestions.

Tires I am currently looking at are:

1. BFG MT KM2
2. Mickey Thompson mtz
3. Pro Comp xtreme mt2
4. Dick cepek mud country or crusher

If you have other suggestions, please feel free and let me know.

thank you.

JT

Hello 2beers

I'm also in the process of looking at 35s, but I'm mounting them on 17" rims, not 15" per your post. In fact, i'd be curious to know if 15s would clear your calipers etc??? I too like the looks of the mud tires, but since 99% of my driving will be on pavement and year round at that, I've opted to sacrifice the Mud bias and go with something that should be decent in the snow and more importantly - ICE... I'm going with BFG T/A T02's.

But that's just the humble opinion of a newbie. Maybe some of the seasoned vets will have better feedback for you.

Best of luck
dg

I have ran a bunch of different tires from procomp extreme MT, bfg MT and KM2. I did not like my KM2. I would pick them least of the three others may have a different opinion. The MTZ are nice and would pick them or the extreme MT

I found they wore very unevenly. Also in my opinion I feel they are more of an all terrain then a mud terrain.

I hated my MTZ's as well. Per Jim, they wore very unevenly (in a way I've never seen a tire wear...) and I drive my Jeep daily year round. I was really disappointed with them. I have had BFG All Terrain KO's (they are more of an all season, not really for heavy mud use), but the wear on them was fantastic.

I currently have the ProComp Xtreme MT2's. They have a 40,000 mile warranty on them. Love them so far and I have had them for just over two years now.

Just my opinion, if you can afford it, go BFG KM2 or my second choice would be the ProComp Xtreme MT2.

I'm on 35 BFG AT KO I had 32 BFG MT KO, the AT feel a lot better on the road, I'm somehow getting better hwy milage on them even though they are bigger, they feel a lot less of a rough ride then the MT, makes driving a little more enjoyable its like the MT tires felt harder if that makes sense, I had only really lost traction in the mud once last trip got a bit of wheel spin in the mud but powered through it, don't clean out as great but just need some extra throttle and it all flings out

I've just installed BFG T/A K02's and they are quieter than the stock Rubicon tires. I would agree with what JKArt has posted. Best of luck with your purchase.
