Offroad tire with R (106 mph) or better rating

Looking for an offroad tire with an R rating or better and Tire Rack doesn't have any. The only options seem to be all terrains like BFG or Firestone Destination AT's. I'd like a more offroad oriented tire than that if possible.

Yes it goes 106+ from time (1/4 mile), so I'd like to avoid any tire that is rated Q (99mph). Starting to look at metric equivalents of 32"x16 if that matters.

Thanks for any info. No need to suggest a second set of wheels... or slowing down because the its gotta eat from time to time!

Adding Toyo Open Country AT II's to the list of aggressive looking All Terrains that are under consideration (because I'm not finding an offroad tire...) They generally have an "S" (112) or "T" (118 not that I'd use it) rating.

Currently have Firestone Destination AT's which have been good in everything except slick mud with snow over it.

I have air, if I only had a lift, the second wheelset wouldn't be an issue.

It's a garage toy, not a daily driver. One of the things I want to do is go wheel all morning and then hit the "test and tune" session on the way home with a "dirty old Jeep". So long as the engine is off, nobody even blinks at it. "I bet that POS Honda won't be any car in the parking lot...I'll even put $50 on that Jeep over there"

I'm still looking but an all terrain may have to work. Gotta use the winch sometime.
