The BFGoodrich All-Terrain is a good "all round" tire. They have good wear characteristics. and Good traction off road(for an all terrain)

I used to run the BFG AT/KOs.
They are great!

Good traction on the rocks, work good in mild - moderate mud, and wear great on-road.

BUT...
I've read in a few reviews that the BFG MTs are supposed to wear very similar to the ATs.

So you may consider the BFG MT as well

Besides the stock Wrangler ATs, I've run 31" BFG ATs, 32" Dunlop Mud Rovers, 33" BFG MTs and finally 35" SSRs.

The BFG ATs are definately fine on the street. But run through so much as a tear drop of water and they're worthless.

The Mud Rovers were *****'n off road. A little light on the sidewall maybe, but they bit and grabbed on anything. They absolutely sucked on the pavement.

The BFG MTs were a great all around tire.

The SSRs are no worse on the pavement than the BFG MT except they are a bit louder. But off road, they are head and shoulders above any tire I've run off the flat.

My commute is 50 miles roundtrip. So all these tires have definately been seeing a good amount of daily driving.

um...Thats good to hear Osburn about the SSR wear. I was considering that for my next tire, but so far everyone has told me they won't last long on the road.
I think I'll check those out when its time to upgrade again

Oh I'm sorry if I implied long life. I've got about 10K on these tires. Not long enough really to comment on longevity.

Try the new Goodyear MTR's, they are a mud tire design but they are as quiet as BFG KO's on the highway, they use a new rubber compound that claims a 78% increase in mileage. And they have the strongest sidewall of any radial made. Besides that all the hard core Rock crawlers are using them, must be tough.
