    I have no experience with any of those.

    I have the Falken Wildpeak AT3W's and have no complaints with them. Two guys at work have them also and like them. The one got them due to the others and my recommendation. Put them on my daughters JK last year. In a couple months we're going to get them for the wifes Murano.

    Just another option to look at.

    One option you might want to consider is the Cooper Discoverer at3. That was my most recent tire purchase and I love them. I ran the grabber at2 for a long long time as well. When I went to buy a new set of at2s I was told by the tire shop that they have been discontinued in our size so be aware you may be buying older rubber. But I'm not sure how true that is.

    The Cooper's are what I have on it now, I really like them but I have a extra set of wheels. I want to have some heavier ply tires for when I go hunting and off road that will handle rough stuff. I need tough sidewalls, I'm wanting 8 ply at least.

    An higher ply tire does not always lead to having a thicker sidewall, check carefully the sidewall construction
    Plus higher ply tires come with higher tire weight etc as well

    Out of those, I'd suggest the Generals. I have them in 255/70R15 on my XJ and love them. They have really good winter grip.

    Like Zombie, I'd also suggest the AT3. Those were on my XJ when I bought it. I think those are what I will end up going with for the KJ this summer.

    How are the grabbers in mud? The Cooper's do very good and will mainly be used in summer and highway use with the occasional river run.

    My only mud experience with grabbers was some slick clay. They were not grabbers that day. If you want something that will be good in mud, these are not the tires for you.

    Nothing I've ever seen does good in clay, that stuff needs track's.
