Quadratec's pac - how's the ride?

I'm about ready to spring for a set of Quadratec's Pro Comp wheels and tires set and was hoping someone might have them and kick in some thoughts.

Here's what I'm looking at:
Pro Comp Xtreme All Terrain Radial Tire on 7069 Series Alloy Wheel Qty 5 for 07-12 Jeep® Vehicles with 5x5 Bolt Pattern - Quadratec

Currently I have stock 225/75/R16s on my Jeep.

Since this is my daily driver, I was wondering if the ride would be worse than the stock tires? Rougher/about the same? Much worse mileage?
And I found no estimated mileage rating on these tires, are they 20-30k tire or a 50k+ tire?

I don't know much about tires and I don't want to regret buying them, hoping for some opinions from people who bought them or know someone with them.

Thanks in advance!
Dirk

I would also like to hear the opinions of anyone who went with this package.

I do not own this package, but I was tempted to buy. The reason I did not: 3 ply on the treads. If you want to run off road it is wise to have a higher ply count on the treads. Mickey It's mud tires (most of them) run 3 ply sidewalls and 6 ply treads. My buddy has a set that is 9 ply and he can run about 9 psi if he chooses to. Your pressure gets that low on a 3 ply and your gonna bend your wheel or have a blowout. Just food for thought. I would also like to hear some feedback from someone who has bought the package though.
