I did extensive research back in September comparing and contrasting, reading reviews, trying to find the best UHP all-season for the Jeep. At the time I had the Nitto 420s, but they weren't good in snow and a tad noisy...but overall I loved em. I was very intrigued by the Motivos, but they were so new at the time. Had to dig a bit for reviews, but was able to make the decision to get the Motiivos over the Contis and the Toyos. I believe the Contis are a good second choice esp if driving in snow is a consideration. I bought my Motivos in back in early fall and they have no weaknesses that I can find. Toyos were average at best in rain and snow, and the Conti DWS have a mushy sidewall as all their tires do, and I dont care for the lack of definition in steering response. In short, IMO the Motivos are the best UHP all-season tire for these Jeeps. Conti DWS and Toyos are also good tires, but in the $1k or less price range, you cannot beat the Motivos. Oh and cant forget to mention the 60k mile treadwear warranty.
