"Pacing myself" build

Maybe I missed it, but did you look at Falken WildPeaks? I've had a couple sets and like them as an AT tire.

I've looked at them as well as the Nitto Ridge Grapplers. I haven't tried this "R/T" thing yet, so I might give one of them a try. My tire history, 1. BFG KM, 2. Cooper STT, 3. BFG KM2, 4. BFG KO2.

Let's take a ride on the Way Back Machine.
My first jump from the stock 30x9.50's to a 31x10.50, BFG first gen KM's,

After wearing those out, time for 32's, enter Cooper first gen STT's.

Oh, and new wheels.
Those Coopers were tough, but very loud after 50% wear.
Then it was time for 33's. Enter BFG KM2's in 33x10.50.

Those were almost as loud as the Coopers, but performed well.
Decided to try a more quiet tire, enter BFG KO2's in a 33x10.50 pizza cutter.

Disengage Way Back Machine in prep for the next evolution in rolling stock with a 285/70R17. Flavor TBD in the coming months.
 
I had the Toyo R/T's when they were first released on my Ram 3500 so can't tell you how they'll ride on your TJ but for the time I had them I liked them. Prior to these I'd tried the Toyo A/T's and hated them and prior to that the Toyo M/T's so felt the R/T's were a better choice for the amount of street driving I did with the truck but still wanted better snow & ice performance.

I ran the first-gen Toyo R/Ts for a short stint as well. I liked their aggressive look for a non-M/T.

I wish someone would just try these already! Or the MT2 in the same size. I'm not trying to be the guinea pig! lol

I have the 35x10.5r17 Kenda Klever R/Ts and am pretty happy with them. Just as comfortable/quiet on road as the factory JK takeoffs I had before them.
Ultra4 team Sherpa Motorsports uses them for races too.

I have no idea what a stock tire on a Jeep should sound like, but you won't be disappointed with the KO2s. I barely notice the sound of my 35x12.5s. The DCs I had before were horrible compared to these. NTM the huge amount of grip difference.
 
Well hell, dont read forums while working... MB

I really don't have any complaints with the KO2's. They suck in sloppy mud, but that is to be accepted. Rain is just ok. It's a compromise for sure. Having ran 3 different mud terrains prior, it was a nice change of pace to have a fairly quiet tire, but I'm over it now, so whatever I decide on, noise level won't be high on the priority list.
 
Sleep number

That’s what we use. Just got new pillows with removable inserts and some winter and summer sheets. Love having the remote for raising and lowering the bed as well as the air pressure.
