Balancing on road with off road needs

My tires will need replacing soon. Does anybody have a recomendation as to the best tires out there to serve both on road and off road needs. (I don't want real loud tires.) Is there a particular thread or brand?

Thanks.

Interco TrXus MTs
TrXus MT | Interco Tire

I have run them since 10/03. I have tried the BFG AT/KO and KM, but the KO's lacked traction and sidewall strength. The KMs had this high-pitched squeel that was unbearable at hwy speeds. Traction wasn't as good as the TrXus MT (@~12 psi), plus I run trails in Baja California where no tire shops exist on every street corner. Two THICK Interco plies are actually stronger than three THIN BFG plies. Go figure.


Baja - Not many tire shops, and too many tire hazards

Thanks for the posts. But I am not real familiar with the terminology. If you have time, could you post a link for me to the various threads you recommend?

I'm running 31x10.5x15 Hankook Dyna Pro ATm on my '91 yj with 2" body lift, but pretty much stock otherwise. I don't do real hard core off road, but I've been places that one of my ATV friends was surprised that I got to. I haven't used them in mud, I don't think they would be good for that, but I've run them in up to a foot of snow and they do excellent when in 4x4. They run on the road as well as any all terrain tire I've had before, and I was very surprized/pleased with their off road performance.
I live in Winnemucca, NV. and a lot of the mine trucks around here run this tire.

I thought that I should add that this is my daily driver, so it gets about 50/50 on road/off road use.

I've had good luck with my Goodyear Duratracs. They're fairly aggressive looking, perform great in the wet stuff like snow and rain, hold their own off road, and have low road noise. Their weakness is their sidewall though. I've seen good things about the Falken Wildpeak AT and the Goodyear Silent Armor for double duty use. But it really depends on what terrain you wheel on.
