That is a good idea. Some are already moving into that direction, like for example Falken.
Falken Wildpeak A/T3W 215/65R17 99T, 4 ply and 32,2 lbs
I never used it, but considering the attached picture and the 4 ply, it could between the Wrangler and KO2.
Awesome! Thanks for this info! Things are looking up! So the 225 range was/is growing (225/65r17 fits stock w/o lift, but is 1/2" larger at 28.5"), it seems like so too is the stock 215 range (stock TH is 215/65r17)! At least now we have 4 choices of "off road capable" tires to chose from now if we want to keep stock!
Stock size (215/65r17): "off road capable" tire choices:
Goodyear Wrangler SR-A (barely more aggressive than an all season)
Falken Wildpeak H/T (barely more aggressive than the SR-A)
Cooper Discoverer AT3 4s (hybrid, closer to an all terrain)
Falken Wildpeak A/T 3W (true, milder, all terrain)
I hope even more manufacturers jump on board!
