Need a street tire in a 35"/36" is there any hope?

Ok, so I've got my full on MT's for the offroad park, and I love them. But driving them on the street makes me cringe since they're so soft. Now, my Jeep is in the process of a complete frame off restoration, and according to my research I should be able to run a 35"-36" tire with the new suspension and everything. I have a little gas-saver DD so the Jeep realistically will only probably see about 3,000 or so miles per year when it's either super nice out or super sh*tty out (snow etc).

Now, the big question:
What is a decent street to mild AT tire offered in a 35"-36" height on a 15" rim??? Does such thing even exist??


I know there's options out there in the 1 ton truck market for those guys that have essentially 35's but they're on 20" rims. NO THANKS. I'll be keeing my traditional 15" steelies.

Thanks a lot guys! I appreciate any and all suggestions, and links to product pages would be great.

Mickey Thompson make their Baja Claws in a 35-12.50- R 15.

General Grabbers also come in that size, as well as Maxxis tires.

BFG A/T's also come in that size. Can't go wrong there.

Falken Wild Peaks come in a 35x12.50.

Here's a good link with several offerings.

Baja Claws are not a very good street tire.

He said street or A/T. I was thinking the Baja Claws were a/t tires. It wasn't their MTZ's.

Doesn't have to have the letters "MT" in it to be an offroad tire. Do the words "Baja" and "Claw" suggest an onroad tire? Aren't the Baja Claws offered in bias ply and the MTZ's aren't? Mickey Thompson has STZ and ATZ which are much more street/AT tires.
