IMHO, from personal experience, the Interco TrXus MTs. Best tire I've ever owned that is as capable as it is.

For a DD the tires I would look into MTR's w/ kevlar, KM2's Open Country MT's

If it matters I have MTR's and my next tires will be MTR's

Pro Comp mud terrains are excellent on the street except for the fact they wear out fast, and offroad they are decent.

Also, Cooper Discover STTs. I would rate them overall in the same class as MTR/K's or KM2s

The new MTR's are a great tire for a mixed use DD. They had better be that is what they where designed for. However, the market for that tire is small so they are in effect high priced (supply & demand). It is a perfect example of "you get what you pay for." I would need to check price wise but the Cooper Discover is a very nice tire as well at a little better price. Get what you need out of a tire and leave the trendy tires to the cool kids.

The Goodyear Dura-Tracs are a very well rounded tire at a substantial savings and are even better traction rated.
