32x11.5x15 tire options

I am looking at running 32x11.5x15 tires on stock 15x7 rims, and a 2 inch suspention lift. I have seen 31x10.5x15 on the stock rims and stock ride height, which is how im figuring that 32x11.5 should not be a problem with a 2 inch lift, and 1.25 inch wheel spacers.

Im looking for input from anyone who has run this tire size, and also need some help picking out tires. I do 80-90% of my driving on road, and this jeep is my daily driver. I still want it to perform when i need it to off road, and feel i can put up with a little on road to get a little in return when i need to clear some mud or loose sand easily.

I cant decide between an All Terain tire or what tirerack.com calls an off road "max traction" tire. Just how much on road performance do you loose with something like the Kuhmo Road Venture MT KL71 as seen here: Kumho Road Venture MT KL71, and how loud would it be? Just how much traction in say loose sand do you loose between one of the A/T tires like the Road Venture AT KL78 seen here: Kumho Road Venture AT KL78 and the 'off road max traction' Road Venture MT KL71's like mentioned above?

- Thanks in advance for any info

Another Option im seriously looking at is the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac, it seems to balance most aspects pretty well in its product descriptions from tire sellers. Just thought id ask here for real world experiences with this stuff.
