Quite Aggressive Tires?

I need new tires. I have a '01 XJ and have ran 31 x 12.5 ProComp X-Terrains, and more recently just finished wearing out Mickey Thompson 31 x 10.5 Baja Claws. My jeep was wobbling, so I brought them in to bet balanced, and was told that they are worn so bad that they can no longer be balanced. Anyway, I still want an aggressive look, and love the way these tires performed off road, but I do drive it on pavement way more than I do off road.

I've been looking at BFG AT's and MT's, ProComp X MT's and X AT's, and Toyo Mud.

Please let me know what you would recommend for an aggressive tire that will last a long time on the highways and provide a quite ride, but also stand up very well in snow, mud and off road.

Thanks,
Rob.

I have the bfg at's. Great tire. Haven't had them in snow, but I think they'll do very well. I don't do extreme rock crawling, just trails and creek bed type stuff here in Missouri. I've had them in the mud and they do pretty well, but I wouldn't take them in sticky mud or mud over your wheels. I'd recommend them. They look pretty good too.

I like the BFG AT's my dad has them on his Jeep and they barely hum. I can't say about snow but they do fairly well in mild off-roading, although I wouldn't get carried away in the mud (very cold, muddy Christmas Eve story).

The MTR K's look pretty sweet. They just might be a little out of range for my budget. Anyone know how long they would or should last with a lot of highway driving? It they can hold up for some time, it may be worth it.

Also, has anyone tried the Hankook RF10's? Comments.....?

My 33' MTR/K are loud on the road. They roar like a lion but I love the sound. They are louder than my MTZ's ever thought of being.

Anyone have any experience with the Goodyear Duratrac's? They look good, but I'm seeing some bad reviews. I'm surprised, because I would think that goodyears would be a superior quality.

If you don't do muddy trails, then I'd recommend the BFG A/T...if some mud is involved, go with the Goodyear MT/R kevlar. Also might consider the Firestone Destination M/T if you can still find them.

I've got 37s toyo mts and there the quietest mt I have ever ran on the road. Also they do 10x better than I ever thought they in the mud. I've have never been in stuck in the year I have owned them and we have some nasty mud and clay down here in Georgia. The only down side to the toyos are they are very expensive.
