Whatever it says on the rear driver's side door sticker, as in the picture.

Depends on your type of driving. If you are 95% on-road, which most drivers are, then any all-weather tire is good. I like B.F. Goodrich Long Trail TA's. If you do more off-roading, then something similar to a B.F. Goodrich All Terrain Radial TA or Good year Wrangler is a good choice. Both of those tires are a softer rubber compound so they won't last as long, about 40k miles. Look for a treadwear rating on the sidewall of the tire. Higher the number, (320 for instance) the longer the treadlife, the harder the rubber compound. Cooper makes a good all-season tire for light truck/SUV that is rated at 60k miles, and is reasonably priced. As for size, as Brian above answered, follow the sticker on the rear drivers door or owners manual...

preference, hard or soft tires, (loud or quiet), budget matters, use matters, everywhere you go, someone will have an individual opinion. Stay away from the cheap stuff, the "off" brands, and always do the recommended rotation...4wd is not awd, and it matters....proper inflation yada yada yada, no "ONE" has the correct response there are too many options...even as far down as WHERE you buy them. Sorry if i didn't help much, but it is all about personal style, and what you look for in a tire.my personal opinion: one single tire company partnered up with each car company to determine the best possible solution for that vehicle....: so the tread design and pattern are specific to each weight,size etc. of every vehicle. Some invest millions for each and every tire design. For that and quality of tire, is the reason why they cost more...they were made for your truck. So it makes sense to go with original recommendations though they cost upto 3 times more than a generic tire, it is with purpose...

From my reading in various other sites, the OE Goodyear Wrangler SR-A's are not a good tire -- bad traction in anything but dry pavement. Ours slipped like mad on wet pavement in a turn, and it was a big surprise -- that was enough to convince me not to return to these tires. My next tires will be the BRIDGESTONE DUELER H/L ALENZA PLUS, which have very good reviews on tirerack.com and other sites. Seem to do well in snow, which is what we are looking for. The only downside seems to be that they decrease mileage slightly, but I'd rather have the safe tire than save a few bucks.
