It depends on your type of off roading your doing, can you give more details of what your looking for?

street looks only, mud, sand, snow, rock?

Best "mud" tire besides a tractor tire is a bogger or the TSL SX

It also has to be good on the road because my jeep is my daily driver and I don't care if the tires are loud

only mud tires ive run are mickey thompson mtz's and bfg km2's though i had the mtz's on a pickup they did wear fast. and im running bfg km2's on my jeep the seem to be wearing ok alot more smoothly than my mtz's which ended up all washboardy every 5k or so miles. both tires were 35's km2's also seem a bit quieter though idk if its just because they are on a jeep that weighs half as much lol! both were on my daily drivers.
