New tire help for Wrangler newbie please.

I have a 1997 Jeep Wrangler Sport that I am going to be needing new tires for soon. My knowledge of vehicles is probably pretty limited compared to most on here, and I'm just trying to figure out how to get the most bang for my buck. It's the only vehicle I have, and I do daily freeway driving in Phoenix. I also enjoy hiking and other outdoor activities so I do take it on what i would call light trails often. I want these tires to last a LONG time (probably one of my top priorities) so what would u all recommend?

Good Year Duratracs and BFG All-Terrains seem to be popular for an all terrain type tire. I personally only purchase mud tires because my rig is only driven about 1,000 miles/year so I do not have any experience with these tires. Search for some reviews on these two tires and see what you find.

The Goodyear Duratrac and Silent Armour tires are worth looking into.

Thanks guys. I'm thinking I might go with the BFG All Terrains, they look decent, get great reviews and will do the job.
