You are asking a lot. LOL.
What you'll find is that a tire that looks good in the parking lot probably isn't the tire you want for a daily 80 mile commute.
The sport's SR-A is smooth and returns very good fuel economy. It'll also work on the sand. The Sahara's bridgestone is decent on the freeway, the Rubicon's KM's look good and are fine on rock and mud but are noisy and will cost you in the MPG department. (I have the above 3 tires on my 3 JKU's). Goodyear wrangler Silent Armors are good all around (use those in the winter which you don't have)
IMO, you should look for a set of Rubi TakeOffs (stock rubicon KM's) and try them out. Keep your SR-A's to either go back to, or just ride on the KM's when you are going off roading or not a lot of vacation. That will give you an idea of how the mre aggressive tread handles - looks, noise, handling, mpg, etc. Nice thing about them, you can pay $800-$900 for a set, try them out, and sell them if you don't like them.
Disclaimer, I have 2 sets of KM takeoffs in the garage, a set of 34" KM2's and a set of 32" Silent Armor's. They get rotated on or depending on season or upcoming offroading trip. The SR-A is actually a decent tire, albeit boring.
