I just skimmed all the other posts so I hope this didn't get covered. True beadlock rims aren't street legal in a lot of states, you'll want to check on that. Also, if you're not airing down to 8psi to crawl on some rocks, I wouldn't think you'd need beadlocks.
As for the rubber, I've run both. The Xterrains weren't bad, they will shake the hell out of you under 10mph and then they settle down. They're pretty quiet and seemed to hold up okay for the first 10k miles (thats when I got rid of that jeep). My only complaint was that they seemed to hydroplane more easily than some. I never noticed if they were smaller in diameter than other 33"s.
The MT/Rs are sweet (and way better looking IMO ). I'm just past the 10k point and I'm just starting to see some wear, so I'm betting on 40k. They handle great, and don't really make that much noise either. So far, call me happy.

Thanks! I think I've desided to go with the MT/Rs. I've called around to a few places. 4WP has a package deal but I got a cheaper price for black steel rims and the tires from America's Tire company. ATC has dozens of locations that will balance the tires and rotate them for free. So looks like I'm getting everything there. Besides, some tallent at the larger 4wheel shops seems to be lacking these days.

And here I thought that I was the only one to think that was the case!

Don't forget about the free flat repair as well. Since there are a lot more America's/Discount Tire Centers around the county this is of more value than free flat repairs by 4WP. If you want added protection by the Certificate's. This gives you free tire replacement if you bust a tire and it can't be repaired. I think I got this for an extra $20 bucks a tire. There is a limit, however. If you are one of those guys that busts two tires every time you go out they will eventually cut you off. This happened to a friend of mine. He would tear out the sidewall of two tires almost every trip. Discount Tires finally said enough and won't replace any more tires free of charge. Personally I don't think this policy is unreasonable. If you're not paying attention to tire placement and constantly ripping out sidewalls then your a lousy driver in my book. I'm very aware of tire placement and will gladly adjust my line if I feel like I might damage a tire. As a result, aside from popping a bead, I have never had a flat (knock on wood).
