So far my Firestone Destination M/T's have been a fairly good street tire. The loudest they get is at about 45-50mph, the further it is away from that mark the quieter the tire but at the loudest point I can still talk to my passenger normally. So far great traction in the rain, andI havent been able to hit the dirt since I got em but I know some people who have and they say its great.

Check out the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac. Nice and quiet on the road, but do very well offroad.

X2 on the DuraTracs.

Had a set on an '85 K20 Chevy.

Great traction when you needed it, didn't know they were there when you didn't.

Wish I still had that truck...

The TJ I recently bought has Duratracs on it. I used to use BFG A/T, but these seem to do a little better on the wet pavement, or else my memory is skewed. I haven't had them off road yet, but they are fairly quiet on the pavement and they are probably at 40-50% tread life. They are snow rated, but I won't get to test that for a few weeks yet.
