Still trying to decide if I'm running winter tires or going with these or contis. The atturos I have would work but cannot get rid of the vibration these have and cold weather seems to make it worse. Its the worst vibration Ive had and it is intermitten when it surfaces.
Interesting you say its intermit Dave. My wife's has 18k still GY's in great shape but on hers I'd say about 70% of the time no vibration, 25% very slight & 5% very annoying. But it can go away while driving.

Vibration is worse in the morning when the jeep has been sitting over night and as you drive it for 5 to 10 minutes it lessens the vibration... The reason I know is cuz I live about 1/4 mile from the highway....

I'll have to pay more attention to hers, sometimes its not driven for a few days & see if its worse than. As opposed to it only sitting 12hrs or so. Race ramps makes flat spot preventers, wondering if parking on them would help.

Same thing here Jim. Mine is more like 40% no vibe, 50% slight vibe, and 10% shake the wheel right out of your hand. When its bad it feels like something is broken.

When I said cold I meant cold temperature, not the first few minutes of a drive as all tires Ive had have vibrated slighty during the warm up.

Rears look like the fit the rim pretty well. My atturos bulge a bit and it looks goofy to me.

Yeah I always thought they looked HUGE. The Contis are also really wide at 12.6" for the 315/35. Motivos are 12.52...Probably the widest where it will still look ok on a 10 inch rim.

Haven't had a chance to try that yet But I will today. I am expecting it to be very good, since the Nitto 420s I just replaced performed very well on WOT take off(just a chirp), and the Motivos are a newer, better engineered tire. I will let you know
