So apparently, you want a more aggressive looking tread than the BFG All Terrain KO. Based on that, I'd go for the BFG Mud Terrain KM2. They wear nearly as well as the AT KO does and are nearly as quiet as well which is to say they are still quiet on the highway. Both of those tires, the BFG AT and MT, will easily last well over 50K miles.

I wouldn't touch most of those other tires like the Super Swampers in your links as most of them (all of the Super Swampers) are LOUD and don't wear nearly as well, not to mention most are far harder to get balanced.

x 2 on the KM2's, they are a great tire. And if you do decide to go off road they will work great too. I run MT MTZ's, they are aggressive, not too noisy and also are great off road. I would stay away from those Interco tires for your situation. Aggressive yes but loud as hell on the HW. Have you looked into the newer GY MT's w/Kevlar sides? That might be a great tire for you.

X2, that's my favorite tire and what I'll be going with shortly, my existing non-kevlar MT/Rs are getting pretty bald.

Swampers are bad ass for offroad use; but aren't the best choice for a daily driver. I have a set of 33" TSL biased-plys. They are awesome on the trails; but suck on-road. I'd go with the BFG MTs. They seem to last a long time & still have fantastic grip even when worn down. I had a set of 31's that were almost bald & still got me around.

If you MUST get one of the sets in the links you provided, I'd go for any of the Mickey Thompson Baja Claw sets.

I really like the Cooper STTs.
IMO they´re better than my old BFG ATs (especially in rain).

Cooper stt = MT MTZ , Correct? Almost the sameFuf not mistaken... Just the MTZ is supposedly a "true" 3 ply sidewall (said by a Cooper/MT rep..w/e that means) and I run 315/75 MTZ and they are an awesome tire on Road they run better than my buckshots or mud grapplers did
