Time to get new shoes for my baby. It's a touring so I'm on 18" wheels. I don't offroad anything hard but do wind up in sand, mud or dry dirt from time to time. I'd like something more aggressive than OEM tires (and cheaper!) but it needs to play nicely on the road--especially in the rain (I live in FL).

I've thought about getting smaller wheels but I love the look of the 18s and, honestly, I'm not going to do any hardcore offroading with this one.

What suggestions do you have?

Thanks.

Continental terrain contact A/T, love them!
Hey Mtbker. Considering getting a set of continental terrain contacts to replace my stock Geolanders (225-60-17). Do you still like them? Any problems? Also, what tire pressure do you run in them? TIA

Thanks! Good to know. I'm planning on getting a set as soon as this coronavirus stuff settles down. Hope you are well and staying safe!

A lot of people here including my self are running the yoko G015 s. I've really loved mine over the last 10k miles with exceptional wet weather performance.
Cheers,
Joaquin

Decided on the Continental Terrain Contact A/T. Stock size for my 2017 Premium, 225/60r17 Had them put on today. Will post some pics later. I have been looking at them and the reviews for awhile. Picked up a large bolt in my left front tire of my oem Geolanders this morning. The tire was beyond repair, and with almost 40K on them, decided it was time for a new set of tires. Haven't gone far with the new ones yet. Initial thoughts: turn in improved, very smooth, but some thump over tar strips, but take bumps well. A little louder than the Geolanders at low speed, but quieter at highway speed. Deep tread,and they look aggressive. Will have to see how they handle some off road. Will have to wait until this Corona Virus madness passes. BTW, hope all of you are staying safe and well.
