I'm riding those now and they are loud and cup easily and this is my second set. I had 31's on my old zj. Good offroad for the price but sidewall is not thick. It's my cheap goto tire when needed.

Mud Rovers didn't wear very well for me. I have run Rovers, BGF ATs, MT's, Goodyear MT/Rs, Kelly Springfield and I could go on and on. My favorite all around tires are the BFG KM2's and the Goodyear MT/Rs.
If your looking for a mud tire with good wear and road manners the KM2's are a very good all around tire.They wear well and give good performance. The Goodyear MT/Rs are good all around as well and excellent when it comes to durability and rocky terrain but for me didn't wear as well on the highway.

these must only be available in the pacific NW, but if you can find Nokian M/t (Finland made) apparently Cooper bought.. these have been both excellent on and off road.. a little *whrrr whrrr* at highway speeds, but ive not been stuck in mud so far... good, tread, medium wear.. about $1150 for the set and mounted....

For off road TSL Super Swamper is the way to go in my opinion. I have heard from guys who have run the mtr"s that they did not like them very well in the mud. I had a set of maxxis bighorns and I was happy with them but on the street they make a high pitched whine, which can get on your nerves, so I sold them. I am looking on getting a set of mastercraft coursers mt.

I'm a very big fan of Courser M/T's. They wear great on pavement and get great traction off road.

I had 35" Swamper SSR's a couple years ago and they were the best tire I have had in Mud and were great on the highway at higher speed as far as being smooth riding

Gotta love necroposts, but the best tires I have seen in the mud are tractor tires. I don't see the OP asking about the Best street legal mud tire.

Like these..... (random pic from Google)



These should work good too:
