    need help choosing tires

    I have a 2000 jeep wrangler sport that is totally stock right now. I am new to a lot of this stuff so bear with me. I am planning on putting a Rough Country 3.25 inch lift on my jeep with 33 by 12.5 inch tires I am having trouble deciding on which tires to get though. I want an agressive tire but this is my daily driver too. I say i would be doing about 80% pavement driving and 20% small trails and driving on the beach. I have been looking at the Trxus STS tires they seem pretty good on the sand and say they are good on the road. I have also been looking at the Mickey Thompson's MTZ's and the ProComp Xtreme mud tires. Any help would go a long way

    I've been very impressed with my Mickey Thompson's MTZ's

    I've ran, BFG KM, BFG AT, Kumho MT, Iroks and these are my favorite for an all round tire so far..

    Although the MTZ and the STT are more aggressive all terrains they perform well with the light TJs on the soft stuff and can be aired down pretty well (I run with 8.5/9.5 psi back/rear in the desert) and bulge out nicely ... no pop out for me since I bought mine in january.

    Noise : The cooper STTs are NOT noisy as expected when new! (comparable to BFG/ATs noise wise) Some people do report a drone when the tire is wearing down and the compound is drying out. If you have a soft top you supposed to be used to "some" noise though

    I usually always buy MTZ's,but got the BFG KM2's last time because they were much cheaper.The MTZ's are more aggressive but the KM2's will last longer.Both are fairly quiet on the street and pretty equal off road.

    BFG KM2's I love the performance, look, and price of mine.

    Ive had Toyo OC MTs. They are pricey but very good for an all around MT tire.

    I would look around for a good AT tire if you are driving 80% pavement. BFG or Nittos are good.
