I just bought my 2003 Jeep Rubicon last week and know that I will need new tires soon.
With that said I would like some recommendations as to what are the best all arounnd tires. I live in Tallahassee, FL and the sand and clay are quite common. I will also be driving to the beach a lot this summer.
Basically I am looking for the best all around tire. I currently have 33"x12.5's on the MT rims.
for all around tire bfg at... but it your going in clay i would suggest a knobbier tire.. try the new bfg km2.. or the dick cepek mud country
1997 TJ, 6cyl, 4' Skyjacker, Custom Bumpers Front and Rear , Rocker Rails, Magna Flow Muffler, Light Bar , Custom Intake, Optima Yellow Top ,33x12.5x15 Procomp X-Terrain, Alpine Type S Audio, 10' polk sub, Recaro Seats.
For All-terrain: Nitto TeraGrapplers - they are an awesome all-terrain tire, VERY cost effective - come in ALL sizes.
For Off-road: BFG KM2, these are the best off-road tire that still has decent on-road mileage.

Rubicon Express 4.5" Long Arm
Bilstein 5150s, 1" JKS BL, 1" ML

how long would a set of dick cepeks mud country last on the road tho?
i read they are supposed to get around 40,000 but i'm not really sure about that. you can actually get a pretty good deal on them at jcwhitney. after you get them in your cart, put in the code: bawlax9 and it takes 20% off. that's what i did, and it worked out to be $158.39 per tire plus shipping. just some info i thought you might find usefull.
