Thinking About New Tires

I'll have to replace the tires for the first time on my '07 Commander Sport. Can I go a little wider on the current wheels? I have no intention of doing a lift. What tires would you recommend? Thanks, Ken

The below thread will help you on the tire sizes. Scroll down about 2/3's of the way.

As far as tires, I'm running Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors and they do great on and offroad.

I was looking at these this evening - Hankook DynaPro ATM RF10.

Only 2 reviews on Discount Tire Direct, but I googled up some other reviews and these tires seem to be appreciated by folks who are running them. Price is very good, as well.

I've been checking these out...I want something a little more aggressive than an All-Terrain tire if I'm going to do a lift etc...

You must not have much mud in your area.
The only thing better than Buckshots in Arkansas mud are SuperSwampers. But they dont wear as good as Buckshots.

Co-op Grip Spurs are GREAT mud tires, but they are Nylon Belted and not as good on pavement as Buckshots.

Looks like a tractor tire!

Interesting! Could be extremely noisy. Yes, I know, not on mud (LOL).

Ummmm thats all we have in my area is mud. Thats why I bought the new Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's with Kevlar. They are a lot better in the mud then my buddy's Jeep that has the Buckshots. Plus you cant go wrong with the Kevlar side walls.

Just my .02
