    Were those Nito terragrapplers by chance? Both size tires look very good

    No, if they were Nitos I might have kept them. They were Atturo tires, which seems to be a budget off-roading brand. They were total junk in my opinion.

    There isn't a lot of difference in the look, but the drive is a lot different. No rubbing if I turn a bit sharply into a parking spot.

    Well now I'm throwing yet a third tire into the mix. The ole reliable Wrangler MTr; 33/11.5/r16. I had this tire on my JK and I liked it pretty well. I think I want the aggressive look of an MT for my rubicon. Any opinions on the MTR? Thanks again

    How would you rate the road noise? Some have stated the GY Authority is noisier on the road...
     
  5. I have some worn out MTR's on my Rubicon. They are not too loud, and handle decently. I'd go with them again, but dang, they are spendy!

    I also want to get the mtrs so I can leave the stock old style MTr on the back. Only have to buy 4 tires this way. Can get 4-33/11.5/16 for 302 a piece. Best price I can find right now. Is a 33" tire too much on these tailgates?

    They are completely quiet......but I am deaf so that might be why. :eusa_dance:

    My girlfriend said she doesnt notice em so they must be pretty quiet. Mine are still full tread.

    There was a co-worker who had em worn down to about 1/4 and said they a bit loud but that is expected.
     

  8. 302 a piece! Wowzers, that seems expensive...to rich for me anyway. Of course, I bought used 32" BFG KM for 100 a piece. I'd look at duratracs...285/75R16 for 230 each at belle tire (don't know how national they are tho). EDIT: I just looked at discounttire (or AmericasTire)...278 each for the 285/75R16 MTR.

    33" is pretty big for the tail gate. You might want to look at the exo gate.

    I recommend KO2's. I do have a set 33x10.5r15 and works well for all seasons, when I'm off-road I do air down them to 11 PSI to get better mud traction as this is where they have some handling limitation depending how sticky the mud it is.

  10. Have you considered MasterCraft AXT 20140617_193341-1.jpg ? I'm running them on my TJ dd and they're quiet yet do well in Ohio snow too.

    I just put KM2's on mine a couple of weeks ago. So far I love them. I'm a little old school about the looks of tires on a jeep. If it was my daily driver I might think differently but I doubt it. A lot of people love the KO2's so you can't go wrong with them

    Lot's a love for Mastercraft tires on Ohio. My LJ comes with a set of those and few of our Jeep club member use the M/T version.
    Can't talk about it cause i do remove mines, GY makes them...:emoji_weary:
