comfortable mud terrains?

hi all, i currently have 33" toyo AT lls and they are great but i am looking to go to a 35". i drive 30 minutes each way to work on highway so i want something comfortable and not noisy but i was thinking about getting mud terrains instead of all terrains since i have been enjoying going offroad more frequently. Can anyone recommend a mud terrain that isnt too noisy on the highway and also offers a comfortable ride.

thanks

My Goodyear MTRs arent very noisy at all compared to other mud terrains ive heard. The ride on the highway is quite comfortable. Around town Im not quite sure yet. Still trying to determine a happy medium between tire pressure and shock settings. They arent bad though.

What you're looking for ("quiet" and "comfortable") is highly subjective, and even influenced by tire size, tire age/mileage, inflation, road surface, weather conditions...

I really enjoy the Mickey Thompson MTZ on my heep. Not to loud, and smooth as glass on the road....

And they dig in the rocks like crazy!

i know it is very subjective but at least it will be a starting point. a couple people on here have recommended some.

Don't have much to compare to but mine seemed quieter than I expected.

i have pro comp extreme mt2 on the 98, little noisy on the highway, but are very good off road.
also come with a 40k mileage warranty,
had a used set that had some miles on them
also the 35 maxxis big horns I have are still just under half tread, my buddy got them 3 yrs ago, ran them on the highway even on road trips, no complaints from him , got some miles on them, and are pretty decent off road, and not real noisy on the road

My Cooper STT's are nice and I loved my BFG KM2's I had on my truck. Also heard great things about Duratrac's.

Only have a few hundred miles on my Kumho road venture MT's in 35's Love them so far. Only downside is that they are directional.

Loved my Duratrac 33's and put about 40k on them before selling them with great tread left to buy some 35's. Went with the Dick Cepek Mud Countrys and even my wife (who thinks I'm a hillbilly with mud terrain 35's) said that she thinks they ride really nicely. Better feel than the Duratracs even and no louder at all. Can't speak to how they will be long term but initial reaction is very positive.

i love my AT lls and was considering them in 35s but since they are All Terrain, i wanted to know if there was a good Mud Terrain option that i could use on the highway as well as off road, which was comfortable and not too noisy.

Second set of km2's now for me. 1st set was 33 and I had about 35k on them before I got a nasty piece of road scrap metal through one. I could have gotten another 5k easily.

My new set are 35's. Performed every time I have asked them too. I can't speak much for road noise or comfort as these are all I've ever had.

Also for what it's worth, tire rack has them rated as best in category if you care about that kind of thing
