    My BFGs were getting a little worn to the point where taking a corner up hill at any speed over idle meant the rear breaking loose 1st-3rd.
    My Dads buddy gets a good deal a a local tire place. I really like the tires he just put on his jeep. General Grabber AT2. The price couldnt be beat so I had 4 LT265/75s mounted, black wall out for a change. I am very pleased, The tuck seems higher, which is strange since they are the same size as the BFGs. I hope they last as long, I got 70k out of that set.
    I just waxed it since Im not sure how many more nice days Ill get before the weather turns. This is the most recent pic with the 5100s on too.
    I was nice and did the GF's jetta too.

    I heard the AT2 are a great tire. I was considering them but decided on GY MTR Kevlars. If GY didn't have all the rebates right now I would have gotten these, I believe these are slightly bigger too...if you go to tirerack the diameter is like 31.9 and other are 31.6. Not sure how much of a difference that makes.

    Thanks for the info on the tires. I believe it about the size. It sure feels Higher to get into. And my Fiancee complained about it being higher when she got in (with a dress on) to go to a wedding last night.:rolleyes:

    Just looked on TR. It's actually 31.7 compared to 31.9. BFG AT 16/32 and AT2 have a 17/32 tread depth.

    Thanks. I haven't done any mods to it in a long time. Now Im getting back into it. Im considering 1-1.5" wheel adapters for it to widen the stance a bit.
