Question 2004 GC Laredo -- best tires?

What are the best tires for a 2004 Grand Cherokee Laredo? I just bought a new one and would like to replace the stock Wrangler STs. I do a lot of highway driving, but also enjoy light to moderate off-road driving. Also need decent wet and snow traction.

Any ideas out there? The stock tires are 225/75R16, but I would like to go a bit bigger. At least 245/70R16. I like the Wrangler AT/S, but it only comes in 225/75 and 245/75.

Thanks.

I just put Bridgestone Dueler AT's on my 98 in the past few months and I really like them. I didn't go with the new Revo edition of this tire but the Revo's seem to be getting incredible reviews. The Revo model are a little more expensive than the non Revo and the tread pattern is definitlely different than most tires I've seen. I would recommend either.

I just bought B F Goodrich A/T KO's and they cost alittle more but are worth it. They have really long tread life and good road manners. They have high ratings on wet and winter condition. They also offer a roadside assistance that if you get stuck they will send a truck out for free. I also bought the warranty from Discount Tires that they will buy you a new tire if you wreck your tires. You should check out their ratings on tirerack.com

A lot of Grand owners really love to run the Bridgestone Duelers Revos.
