best mud/traill/daily driver tire - 35in. radial

I am in the process of adding 3" suspension lift to my 03 Rubicon that already has a 2" body lift. I am looking for suggestions on the best 35" radial tire for my wheelin. This jeep is a daily driver to and from work, about 12 miles round trip. I do limited mud riding, mostly trails, hills, some rocks. I am looking for advice on a 35" radial that will not wear out in no time on the road but will give me the best traction in the mud and trail. I know you can't have the best of both worlds. What do you guys have that fit my needs. Please help.

considering this set

I like MTR/Ks but your "trails" are probably different than mine.

Check out Baja MTZ's. My buddy has a set on his 4 banger and loves them.

I like Cooper AT3. Great on road and trails, and surprisingly adequate in mud that I've got into on trails.

I've several times driven in 4" deep mud in 2wd (open diff) without airing down while crossing a muddy creek bed. Never spun yet, though there were a few minor wheel slips (like a quarter turn or so) going up the slightly inclined muddy bank on the way out.

Warning: I often edit my posts a few times to get them complete, or to correct errors.

Warranty and customer service won't matter if your equipment fails during a zombie attack.
Torture numbers long enough and they'll tell you what you want to hear.

Agreed. I've been running km2s since I lifted my jeep and they work great. A little noisy on road but Offroad takes you where ever you want to go.

Thanks for the input. After much reading and searching the forum I ordered KM2's a few minutes ago.
