My wife's vehicle needs new tires. P235/70R16 is what we need. Right now we have Goodyear Wrangler SR-As on and if I recall, they've lasted about 3 years. I've been looking at Tirerack trying to do some research but I'm not seeing anything that stands out from the crowd. Her driving is limited to highway - no off-road. We live in PA so something all-season seems best. Any tire experts out there that can steer me in the right direction or does anyone have any personal experiences that might help?

Thanks all!

I just put Yokohama Geolander AT's on my Tundra on recommendations from members here, good traction and quiet.

Check out Bridgestone. Just put a set of Dueler H/L Alenza on my 07 Sierra. Great tire.

It replaced Goodyear Eagles LS-2 that lasted 33,000 miles.

You mean 2005, right? The liberty was new for model year 2002.

I have a Liberty, and when I needed new tires, I had General Grabber LT AT2s fitted. Nice rugged tire, great in the snow, but they did drop my milage a bit.

Yes - I meant 2005 not 1995. Thread title has been corrected. Thanks for the suggestions so far.

If you want long life, get Michellin LTX. Pricey, but will go 70k miles.

If they're available in your size: Michelin X-Radial from Sam's Club. I have them on the wife's CR-V. Essentially a passenger car tire, but they're quiet and do OK in the snow and rain. Performance in slush could be a little better, but overall I'm very pleased with them.

Those tires would most likely outlive her Jeep. Don't need tires that will last that long.

My go-to tire for on/off road. I had the standard size on my Cherokee and put 31's on it after I installed the lift. I would put them on a Liberty in a heartbeat. I did many a trail in 4WD with them and they got me to work in heavy snow all winter.

The Yoko Geolandar recommendation is good. They came standard on my Forester and were a good tire. Expensive to replace the one that got a nail in the sidewall- I wound up going with Michelin Pilot Exaltos when I had to replace all 4 and they're great for an all-weather passenger tire.

Futura Triple Treads. Best tires I have put on my SUV ever.

I'd go with Yokohama Geolander.

Just got some Prodigy HT by Yokohama
45,000 mile tire, $88 bucks each, and ride so much better than the original Goodyear Wrangler SR-A
