stock size AT tires

Im gonna need a new set of tires in the next few months and want to hear from people who have stock(non-lifted) commanders with stock size AT tires. I want to know how much if any they affected your mileage, noise and tread life. Thanks!

At this point im probably gonna end up with GY Forteras, but i wouldn't mind something a little more aggressive if it wont kill my mileage! Also feel free to comment on any other tire you may have......

I bought my Commander used and it had a set of Uniroyal Laredo Cross Country tires on it. I wanted something a little more agressive, so I put on a set of Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10s in factory size. I absolutely love them. I saw no decrease in mileage, they were only marginally noisier than the Uniroyals, and they actually handle a little better in the dry, and a lot better in the wet. Sorry, I have no experience with Forteras.

I didn't think the GY Forteras com in an A/T. I would recommend the GY Silent Armors. I had them before the Revos I'm running now. The Silent Armors ran great, and I didn't notice any real difference in mileage.

Thanks, yeah the Fortera's don't come in an AT tread but they are more aggressive than most standard "straight" tread tires, and I can get them for $107each at the moment

I just had to put tires on my stock 2008. I wanted to get bigger tires but choices are really limited and 265x75x17 BFG's were too big I also wanted a better tire for offroad than the Goodyear's that come stock on the Jeep.

I ended up with 245x70x17 General Grabber AT2 tires. They were $161/ea at Discount. Nice aggressive tread and seem to have pretty good offroad ratings. Ride is a bit bouncier than my stock tires but hey, I'll give up a little ride comfort/noise for offroad capability. BFG TA KO's were a little over $200 each! Nitto's were around $190/ea I think.

The Fortera's are ok, they only lasted me 50K with proper rotation. My (previous) BFG TA KO's lasted 65K on a different 4x4. Offroad the Fortera's didn't do so well in clay-mud, which is everywhere in Texas. Sand was great because they didn't have a deep tread. Not sure how well they do on rock.

If offroad is important, you might want to check this site:
http://www.offroaders.com/tech/AT-MT...l_Terrains.htm

I've only had my new tires a couple days so haven't had a chance to really test them yet. Although I did get to test them on wet roads - they worked great.

Hope that helps!

PS: Just in driving my slightly larger tires in 2 days my AVG/MPG has gone up .2 miles to 13.4 (its a 5.7L hemi) - woo hoo!

Not to be a jerk or anything but if your looking mpg ur driving the wrong vehicle. i think theres a prius with your name on it. my experience with the forteras was terrible. horrible in snow, mud, rain. tread life was a joke im runnin the terra grapplers now for about 25,000miles and they still look brand new (rotate every oil change). no road noise and look bad a$$. mpg sux... but they are oversize a/t tires u gotta expect that. my opinion... It's a jeep! put some big gnarly tires on it!

Don't worry i hated the stock size tires and am running bigger AT tires, why is it a bad thing to try and get the best mileage possible, and why the heck would i want a prius, if it gets bad enough that i need a prius i'll walk
