I have 33 inch Mud Terrain and they work good off road but are a little noisy on the road. I drive with half doors and no windows so I really do not notice the noise

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not

General Grabber AT2 were recommended to me here and so far I am quite happy with them. They look nice, aren't very loud on road, and performed grea in he snow last week.

I went with a set of 31" Duratracs on my YJ with a 2.5" lift. Perfect on and off road. Mud, snow, rain, dirt, rocks....

Im a JK-er...but a tar is a tar....

I cannot say enough good things about the Falken Rocky Mountain (aka Wild Peak)

I get happier and happier each day....

I drive 45 miles every morning...80mph on a toll road.
Then 6 miles....10-20mph on gravel road
then spend all day bouncing around the roughest, rockiest, patch of land you can imagine, covered in cactus and mesquite and everything else that can bite, scratch, sting, stab, or maul you.
Traverse occasional mud-holes.
then when there aint enough light left to work with...
6miles of gravel road...
45miles of toll road...
Hot shower
soft bed.

I like my job.
LOVE my Falken Rocky Mountains
Live by my Jeep.

my review -
Falken Rocky Mountain 33x12.5x15 on Chaos 5

I have the Dick Cepek Mud country, very pleased with them. Very little road noise, great on the trails.

I loved my Cooper Discoverer AT/3's. Great on and off road.
92 YJ, 4.0, D44/60, 5" BDS springs rear, SOA front, 1" booms, 1" BL, 35x12.50x15 MTZ's, 4.10 gears. It's never done though.
