tire advice for a newbie...What's good for these Commanders??

I bought an 06 3.7 last week and the wife's sister has an 06 LIMITED.She's in South Jersey by the shore.What are the best tires for her Commander with 0 off road driving.As for mine,I'm in upstate NY where it started snowing Monday night and it hasn't quite stopped yet!I only go off pavement when i'm taking the dog to some field somewhere.It gets below 0 up here and snows like it's going out of style.I'd be interested in the best ALL SEASON tires for these two vehicles.Thanks.

Well being from southern/central NJ, and dealing with all the snow thus far, and i can you that i couldn't be happier with my General Grabber AT2s. I seriously think these are one of the best all-around AT tires i've ever had.... and i've had A LOT of tires

They're great on dry roads too... but they're not as quiet as the stock tires. That's usually a bit of the trade off. Don't get me wrong, they're not loud by any means.... but they do make more sound than a highway tread pattern.

They also have a 6 year 60,000 mile treadwear warranty (for the non LT sizes)

Some other good all-season tires to consider are the Goodyear Silent Armor and the Bridgestone Dueler Revo.

I presume the LIMTIED 4.7 Commander has bigger tires sizes then my 3.7 with leather,right? These all are available in the corresponding sizes I imagine?

You both would run the same tire size.

And yes, the tires i'm mentioning are available in the stock sizes.

Although if you want to run a 2" spacer lift and a slightly larger tire size, that's always a good option too

I run Goodyear Silent Armors. I like them. They have been great in 2 seasons (now third) in Michigan's snows.

I usually don't give tire advice, but it sounds like you are really looking for a silent tire.
Like GP said above the silent armors are just that and more.
I run Pirelli Scorpion ATR's, live in Northeast, Ohio "snowbelt" and have never had any snow or ice issues. When I changed from the Fotera's my goal was quiet.
I drive about 35,000 a year highway so wasn't looking for a agressive off road tire, though they have been off road, about 130 miles in Moab and many other trips.
I have 65,000 miles on them now, and my Christmas present to me was new digs.
I could probably get another 10,000 out of them but my son started driving and I want the best under his feet. So... new ones are coming soon, like next week.
Good luck with your decision.
Forgot something.. My parnets live South of Daytona and yes been on the beach at least twice a year and no issues. Only been in mud about 6" no issues there but wouldn't go anny deeper.
