Looking For Sugestions On New Tires

We have a 17' JKU and planning on doing a mild lift and putting new wheels and tires on. I have pretty much settled on 295-70-18s and am looking for a A/T tire thats gets decent traction in rain and snow and is quiet, we dont do much off road and no mud if can help it. I had a 03 4runner that came with Michelin LTXs that did well all around but am open to other opinions.

I just swapped my stock mud tires for 285/70r17 Nitto ridge Grapplers and couldn't be happier.

Your driving habits are similar to mine, joeb58, when it was time for new tires recently, I ended up with Nitto Terra Grapplers.

BFG KO2's are smooth and quiet, 3PMSF rated and I will attest, they are OUTSTANDING in snow and sleet storms on the road.
Falkens were my second choice, went with BFG because I knew I would get a lot of miles out of them as I drive around 25k miles per year.
