35x12.50R17LT Dick Cepek Mud Country tires are mounted on AEV 17x8.5 Pintler beadlock wheels with Argent finish. The Cepek Mud Country tires have an all-around tread design that's aggressive enough for light mud and heavy trail use, yet have good road manners, too. The AEV Pintler beadlock wheels are D.O.T. approved. We thought that running 35-inch tires on the JK Explorer would be a good compromise for dual-purpose use. We were wrong. JK Unlimiteds need 37-inch tires to look proportional and to help when breaking over obstacles. The 37-inch tires on Unlimiteds look like 35s on other, shorter Jeeps. We plan on 37-inch Mud Country tires soon.
