Yeah what type of tire do you want? If you're looking for off road tires, I'd recommend either Maxxis Bighorns or BFG's Mud Terrain (only 2 I've really ran so far ). Both tires are great on and off road, the Bighorns are the cheaper of the 2 $127/tire for 33x12.5" on www.selecttire.com however I see that nikkiw0212 on eBay sales them for a bit cheaper.

I just put a set of Toyo Open Country AT's on mine, I have not had a chance to "play" with them yet but they do have a great ride on the highway. Really the only reason I chose this tire is it was available in the small town I live in.
The PO of my jeep had put on a set of TSL Thornbirds and I really hate this tire for highway use so I figured the Toyo's have to better than what is on there now and boy are they. I went from "riding in an Abrams tank to riding in a luxurious Jeep When I finally get a chance to try them out off road I'll post a follow up.
Here is a review for them I found in dirt road mag.
I have run both the BFG AT's & MT on my Chevota and either way they are good tires off road, The AT's are quieter on the highway ( obviously, look at the tread ).
I pulled the AT's in favor od a set of 36" Super swamper TSL's which really made my 400hp yota unstoppable. Sorry for the rant, back on subject, There are many factors in getting tires, size, type of driving, conditions of driving, personal preference, appearance, longevity of tire ect.
If you are planning to use it on the highway more you really do not want a very aggressive tread pattern.
What "type" of driving are you planning to do?

I've run BFG's and Duelers. My ZJ is no longer worthy of expensive tires. I bought some Yokohama Geolander AT/S's from tirerack and had them mounted at WalMart for $27. So, right at $400. They look great and I expect they will do just fine. The only tires I could find in the $400 range in my town were cheaper quality tires. So thats an option if your looking to save.

Here's another vote for the Toyo Open Country AT tire.
I put a set of 245/70/16's on my '02 Laredo. Nice smooth riding tire, fairly aggressive tread, and pretty good in the snow. I've put 9,000 miles on them in the past 6 months- no complaints here!
Great tire. Great Price, Great looks, Great (low) noise levels. I've had these tires for ~1 year and am very satisfied with them. Price is tough to beat too.
Best way to buy from tirerack:
Go to Discount Tire/Americas Tire. Show them the printout from tirerack with their price. They have no channels to get a hold of this tire (at least not for a reasonable price) so they will order it from tirerack giving you the tirerack price.
The great part is you won't have to pay shipping or worry about receiving the tires. You'll just need to pay the regular mounting and balancing fees.
Also don't buy the road hazard program from tirerack, it's a PITA and you only get reimbursed for the original cost of the tire (i.e. no mounting/balancing of the replacement tire). Even if you have Discount Tire ordering your tires from tirerack, you can still get the road hazard protection from Discount tire (which is way better than tirerack's).
