Need quick tire help....

I need to place an order for tires Monday morning and can't decide between the following:

Nitto Trail Grapplers
Toyo Cross Country MT
BF Goodrich MT

I am going to be running 35x12.5x17 on my JKU. It will be used about 7,000 miles a year and driven locally, on forestry gravel roads, on dirt roads, and some towing.

Need help choosing the best tire and they will be mounted on AEV wheels. Thx!

I just went through this decision. I chose...Cooper ST Maxx 295/70/R17's. The reviews on them were fantastic so I decided to give them a try. I really like them, extremely quiet(even my wife thinks so). They ride great once I dropped the pressure down to 40 psi. Some people on here go lower like in the mid 30's but I found that 40 is working fine for me. Took it offroad yesterday(we finally got rain here in N LA) and it did well in fresh dirt and red clay on some new pipelines they are building near my house. Obviously they are not a M/T but they have a very nice aggressive profile. The pic may be upside down, I am sorry! This is stock, no lift. I am installing the OME this week. But this should give you an idea of the tires. I had Nitto's on a Z71, they were good too.

If you are not playing in deep mud why run mt tires? Sounds like Toyo at2 or bfg ko2 would be a tire better suited.

I just want more aggressive looking tires.
