Better 35 than Duratrac?

I'm about to order a set of 35x17 Duratracs. I have 33x15 now and love them, but they are moving to the new jeep in the family and I'm getting 35's. Before I pull the trigger, I'd like to know if there's a better 35 I should research before I order. The things I value the most - Good daily driver (Ride, safety, noise, weight for mpg) and off road (traction, durability), and then good value for the money. The 33's have done great for me and I'm very happy with them, but any time I spend a couple thousand, I want to know I looked at the various options first.

Thanks for the advice.

If you don't do mud then the bfg AT KOs are close. If you like mud then they aren't. I'd say toyo open country MTbut those are heavier and a mud tire, but not very loud. You'd get worse mpg with them. The duratracs are a great all around daily driver/weekend wheeler tire
