Just wondering what is a good all around on/off road tire? Anyone change sizes, rim size, what offset ect? Looking to swap the big lugs for something a bit more pavement friendly! The Wanda's are a good tire but kinda squirrely at high speeds.
Really depends more on the type of off road use you do. Street use going with a LT tire will work well, but not all LT tires do well off road. If mostly trails and two tracks the Grabbers work well and being in Wisconsin they are a good winter tire as well.
They do marginal in sand and not the best in mud. They require higher speeds to keep the lugs clean.
My Hercules are great all around, but are a bad winter tire on packed snow because of the lack of siping. There really is many choices and hard to say what works best in all conditions. Being that you live where there is snow some tires that work well in many conditions still do not perform well on packed snow.
Going to a 15" rim does give more choices in tires then staying with the 14". Best to read tire reviews for tires that you may be interested in. Even then remember these machines way less then vehicles many tires are created for and that to can change that given tires performance in some instances. That is the biggest issue with my Hercules. They have aggressive lugs for off road, ride well and perform well on black top and dirt roads, but the lack of machine weight and the mentioned siping makes them horrible on packed snow cover roads.
From what I have experienced given all the conditions most use the General Grabber is a good all around tire for the money. Just know if occasional mud is in your use then remember to just go like hell to keep the lugs clean.
I went with Kanati mongrel 32 x 15 just because I wanted max speed for the street. I gained 10 mph over stock. They also make 30 x 15 and 30 x 14 if you want to keep stock wheels. 5 mph gain over stock.Not as noisy as stock tires,and aggressive tread.also run balancing beads
How do you think 28" tires rear and 22" front will handle?
being four wheel drive you cannot run two different size tires. They have to be the same size all the way around are you will break it.
Correction on that one TJ, They have to be the same height of tires on the front and rear. They come from the factory with two different size tires and I myself have been running two different size after market tires since about six months after I got mine. No problems with mixing, just need to be same height front and back.
