Tire suggestion for marble falls?

I have a question for the people that wheel at hidden falls. Given my jeep which currently has 15x35x15 TSLs on it is that a good choice of tire to run at hidden falls I have never been there and i need new ones. I really want to get away from that tire it sucks up gas has a potential to break parts and is expensive. I am thinking about going with a narrower tire like a 10.50 SSR for I will be driving it on the street. I dont really want a 12.50 for one i dont think i will be saving that much more money over my current TSLs and I want to get into rocks more and I believe that a narrower tire will help my drivetrain live a little longer. My question is what are the thoughts of the people that have been there what would a good choice be?

I run 35 12.50 BFG Mud terrains and I could not be happier. Great road manners. I have wheeled all over hidden falls with them an could not be happier. That is just my thoughts. And I get better MPG from my 33

My 33X10.50 KM2s have performed well at Hidden Falls.

Thanks that is very good to know I was thinking about that tire because it seems to be one of the more inexpensive ones.
