Tires for DD and south tx brush country

Gonna be moving out to the ranch in the next month or so. Looking for durable tires that can handle mesquite branches, cactus, soft dirt, gravel but also be able to get me through a 100 mile round trip work commute. Gonna be doing some hunting, fishing, occasional work with the father in law, so I'm going to need something that can handle going off the beaten path.

Wanting some aggressive looking 33s but thats probably not the most economical for the long commute

09 stock sahara unlimited, 3.73 gears, leveling kit to be added

The more I research the more indecisive I get.

Trail grapplers (weight causes concern but could be my choice at the moment)
Duratracs (possible weak sidewalls)
Fierce attitude (same as duratrac?)
Kelly Safari
Cooper STT

The list goes on and on

I will either get new 16s or 17s just because of tire prices for 18s

Price is a factor in making my decision

If this has been discussed before just point me in that direction
