blackwall tire for 17" stock rims

Hey guys ... would love some input if you have the time.

I have a 2012 Sahara ordered and the intention is to make my Sahara look like the Mojave MINUS the decals of course. After a lot of debate I am deciding to stick with the stock tire size for the 17" rims. I plan on ordering the mineral gray wheels and bumper inserts, but am trying to decide what to do tire wise.

Can you give me some input on my best possible option for my needs? I want an aggressive mud tire for looks only ... honestly I will not be doing any off-roading but like the look. I could stick with the stock BF Goodrichs (I have to buy these tires anyhow if I choose them because I am replacing the 18" rims on my Sahara).

Some people have talked about the Nitto Trail Grapplers and I do like the look of them. How do they compare with the stock BFGs as far as road noise, snow/ice, etc.? Any input would be great!

If you want a mud tire strictly for the looks, the Nitto Trail Grappler and Toyo MT are the two quietest MT's on pavement. The BFG MT KM would probably be my next choice for a street friendly MT.

Thanks for the input guys ... that link was especially helpful. I think I am leaning toward the Nittos but also have concern about how heavy they are overall.

Any more thoughts? I will mostly be driving around town and on highway and doing NO off roading. Priorities include just basic looks of the tire as far as aggressive but I do want them to be on the quieter side as well.

I still bounce back to thinking about 33s but don't necessarily want a lift or spacers yet. Can I get away with 33s without a lift or spacers and have no rubbing?
