Tire recommendations 31x10.5

I'm looking for some 31x10.5 tires for my TJ with 15x8 rims.

I'm looking for the following qualities in this order:

1. Long lasting
2. Good looking which to me is an agressive tread design
3. Performance.
4. Price

Any recommendations

You left off street manners. Are you concerned about noise and vvvviiiibbrratiioons on your daily driver?

You also didn't mention what type of terrain. Mud, rocks, sand?
And, you didn't mention budget.

If I didn't have a budget, and it wasn't a daily driver, I might do this:

That is a great looking tire but I imagine you won't get 30K miles out of it and it might not be the most comfortable on the freeway.

Daily manners are important too. Its all about compromises, isn't it?

What would be the longest lasting street tire with aggressive looks and lowest cost available in 31x10.5 for 15x8 rims? (Use: daily driver on the highway and yearly ski trips)

kumho venture all terrains are nice, i have them on my dd. also kumho venture mud terrains are good as well, my hubby has them on his commander. they are great on and off road, and they have a little more aggressive tread then the all terrains. the prices are pretty good as well. IMO, kumhos last longer to BFG's and are priced out better.

Cooper ST's I've had them on my last 5 Jeeps and my Daughter's GC. She's had them for about 5 and 1/2 years and about 45,000 mi. They will need replacing this fall. And she will be getting another set of the ST's. Cooper also makes an STT that is more agressive. I'd like to try them if my TJ ever wears out it's current sneakers. HTH

I've been running the Hankook Dynapro RT03 in 33x12.50 for over 3 years now. They have 40k mi. on them and still have plenty of tread, perhaps another year easy.

Toyo Tires

toyo tires are pretty decent, they have the MT model and AT model, i have the AT model on my Jeep, works well even in deep clay and water.. (found out by accident) good tread, looks good, rides smooth on the road and doesnt sing much.. if you want more aggressive check out the MT's.. around $150 and up depending on size.
