i have a '93 country 4-door with rear wheel drive. The tires i have now (firestone destination le p225/70R15 100s) are really bad. so i was wondering if anyone knew of some good all around tires, good in dry, decent in snow and good for a little off-road. i have a stock suspention Looking to spend at most $400
All helpful tips will be graciously accepted

Moving this to Suspension, Steering and Tires. Wink

BF Goodrich All Terrains are a good all around tire. Mud will render them slicks though.

Ill 3rd the BFG AT's.

Great in wet and slick conditions, rain snow ice etc. Ive had them and probably will be my next tire on my TJ.

I got 'em too. Phantum's right tho, don't expect to make any progress up muddy inclines with these tires. Otherwise, the do great for everything else.

I also agree, BFG's are always a good choice for the weekend warrior. I have't let anyone I know down.

Spend at most $400? BFG's probably aren't in your price range. The tires I have (Wild Spirit Radial DTX's) are fairly cheap and have very good traction. Excellent in snow and ice and dirt. Not too shabby in mud.

AS well running 33x12.50s on my TJ. They are on a 15x8-inch rim.

IN the mud they are what I call "My all terrain racing slicks"

Every day use and on some slick rock they are awesome. They dont have that mean tread pattern, but they've served me well for the last 2years.
