I recomend dunlop radial mud rovers because they are cheap and get the job done. For an a/t tires, go with the yokahama geolander a/t. great tire!

my lst cherokee i had the liberators from walmart that i took off my dads blazer. great tire, did awsome in the mud and even better on the street. worth the money and you get great milage from them. on my new jeep i have goodyear wranglers that i picked up for real cheap to get me through till i put the lift on. good tire, great in the snow and do pretty good offroad. went through some mud that i was draging my axle on (thick muskeg type of mud) and crawled through with little issues. my next tire will most likely be 31's or 32's super swamper ltb's.

i saw the parelli jones dirt grip tires and they dont look to bad in 31's beause i have 16inch rims so it's a littl harder finding a tire that will be a 31 and fit a 16 inch rim. if all else fails i'll get some of that rim paint and paint my stockers black...or maby gold with the crome center caps.

Like Twisted has mentioned, what you want to do with your vehicle matters the most!
I am rolling on TrXus M/T, they are surprisingly quiet on the road, and they grip pretty well but not the greatest on snow.
I thought about going with BFG MTs or Baja's...but again, what you want to do with your car matters the most! Since i like to rockcrawl rather than muddin, i might go with BFGs

I love my Yokohama Geolander MT+'s. 31x10.50/15's. On alloy rims they took almost no weights to balance, and they run very smooth and quiet on the road.

They dig and grip like crazy offroad, I finally got to try them out in a little mud at my aunt's horse farm this weekend Went through one area (about 100'), stopped on the firm ground on the other side and looked back to see diff tracks between the wheel tracks. I didn't even have to spin them hard to get through!

I'm running 31" mtr on 15x8 rockcrawlers

I finally had a chance to get them in some mud today since its been raining here since yesterday. I don't think I would recommend them to someone for mudding (although they are not as bad as rumors make them out to be). For everything else they are awesome, But VERY pricey!!

Dunlop Mud Rovers for the win. Their trail performance is comparable to the big name brands, and they're under $100 a piece for 31's. The lugs are big and nobby and spread apart. Exactly what is wanted in a M/T. They ride good on the road, a little bumpy when you're excellerating from a stop. Light hummmmmm... but when you get an M/T, who doesn't want that recognizable hummmmm. I like being heard coming down the street. Hasn't snowed here all winter so i can't comment on snow performance. They grip well in all situations.
