Step up from stt's?

Im wanting to go from my 35-12.5 cooper stt's for some 33-12.5's but want a step up in offroad performance. Dont care much for road manners just want decent wear and good mud, rocks tractions, if that exists. Ive heard good things about mtr's with kevlar and will probably get those if no one suggest anything better. Any help or info is appreciated!

I went that exact route (STT to MT/RwK) and have been very happy. Not many rocks around here but on everything else, it was definitely a step up.

The MTR Kevlars are amazing offroad. However, I feel (with a light 2-door) that the sidewalls are very very stiff. I run them at 24 on the road and 10 offroad. Hoping the sidewalls eventually (4K on mine) break in.

Mine are almost 4 years old (approx 20k on mine) and they get a decent bulge at 12-8 lbs on 15x8s but still pull like crazy and you can tell that they do wrap around stuff. They break in some over time, despite being on a light vehicle like a Jeep but don't expect too much.

Thanks guys! I honestly dont mess with air pressure on my tires like a dumba**. I never crawl on anything to serious, only because there isnt anything around here, i know tire pressure still matters in mud but not as much as on boulders right?
