Trying to decide which tires for my application

Just recently had my 15 JKU 2.5" lift installed the other day and I have begun my search for a 35x12.50x17 tire. I am kind of wanting to keep my stock wheels and am not going to put wheel spacers on. If I have to replace the wheels, I will, but am wanting to avoid it if possible.

About 95% of the time my ride will be on pavement, so Mall crawler title it is. The other 5% I would say would be on soft sand at the beaches of Maryland and North Carolina (a 450 mile drive). I may or may not be convinced to take my ride off road to Rausch Creek in Pa, maybe....

One of the tires I currently think would be the best for my overall application are the Red letter General Grabber. I have run Toyo Open Country MT, Nitto All terrains and Cooper STT most recently.... Over the years have enjoyed BF Goodrich General tires overall. I am trying to get the best bang for my buck as is everyone and I am not needing the most popular tire, would prefer one which performs on pavement, and on the beach.

thanks

Toyo Open Country AT2, or BFG KO2's are very popular here. Both tires are very "streetable" and can hold its own in off pavement situations. KO2's are quiet, Toyo AT2's are silent.

I took JADMT's advice a while back and put 285x75x17 AT2s on my 2015 JKUHR. He knows everything Thus far, I couldn't be happier. They're great on and off road. However, you can't run them on stock wheels without spacers. I didn't want spacers, so I went with AEV rims. I'm not sure whether there are any 35s (or 34s) that will work on stock wheels, without spacers, at least off road.
