    Yeah, I gots boost
    I suppose they are probably OK for a no-offroad type of situation. My experience has always been that Firestone tires are junk, but to each his own on that front.

    What is a good brand of tires for street use only with multi ply and can take a lot of PSI (45-50).

    Yes
    why do you want to run 45-50 psi ? that is wayyyy too much for that little truck ? It will dome your tire and make it wear out in the middle pretty fast.

    That one is a winter tire. So it’s not a good daily driver.

    If you do indeed own a TRD Pro, the OEM Wranglers are great for daily driving on the road.

    If you must replace them, Michelin Defenders are pretty decent.

    In my opinion you shouldn't look at any other tire but the Michelin LTX/MS2

    Great traction, tread life and smooth ride...period

    Why are you looking at "All Terrain" and "Trail Runner" tires if you are not going to drive off road? Did I miss something here?

    Plus 2 of those choices are the stock tires. OP should know how those
    tires perform since they came on their PRO.

    Asking since I have no idea of tires. In over 20 years this is the first time I shop for tires. Have 18X9 -12 wheels and looking for something that is long lasting and good for all around drive and quit but with stiff walls. Since never intend to go off road looking for performance on street drive.

    Like I said...Get the Michelin LTX/MS2

    I've had 4 sets and you will not beat them for what you want to do with them.

    Anyone try those Goodyear Wrangler Trailrunner tires that OP posted? Those look pretty interesting.

    Edit: I’ll start my own thread on those. Looks like the michelins are highly recommended for you situation.
