Probably gonna catch some flack on this :)

Gotta have new tires. 35x12.5x17. Need the best rain performance possible for my DD while also wanting an agressive design for off roading.
For you KY-TN folks, I do most of my off roading at Turkey Bay at LBL. FC II's, Wranglers? What do ya'll think?

If rain is a major concern then I have to agree, Duratrac's. A very aggressive A/T. Even though M/T's will do better off road they are not a great rain tire. All season would be the best rain but A/T is a good compromise for rain and trail and the Duratracs just look good too.

Here is a pic of the Duratrac

I've been reading over and over that the GY Duratracs are awesome in the dry, rain, and snow, and are pretty good off-road as well (they just have a thinner sidewall, but the upside is that it reduces weight).

I will be ordering a set myself in 33". The 35s will be a bit pricier.

Look up Hankook Dynapro ATM and read the reviews. I chose these over Duratracs because I've haven't heard anything bad about Hankook tires and they had better reviews on Discount Tire website.
