You can't really go wrong with either the MTR's with Kevlar, KM2's, or Cooper STT's

Another vote for kevlars here. Out a set of 35x12.50R17 on in the begging of December and they handle everything great. Over 200cm's of snow here in the past month. No troubles

This is the original Viking top. They arent around anymore but are now made by Rampage. And yes it is frameless.

Better on road manners.. Particularly snow and ice due to the sipping.. I like to think of the STT as the middle ground between a aggressive AT and a True MT.. The KM2 is a excellent offroad tire with good on road manners for having little or no sipping.. There is alot of love for both of these tires.. Just depends on how you plan to use your Jeep..

on 35's i'm not really sure.. Not a tire size I've ever looked hard into.. 33's run just a little over 200 a tire typically.. The KM2's in 35's on tire rack are 190 a tire so at a tire store with mounting and balancing and what not you probably looking at 200 or a little more a tire

I did just see the STT's at 181 a tire for 35's here Cooper Discoverer Radial STT Tires

I'm kinda surprised at that price because I usually here around 200 for the 33's..

Good for sand wheeling.. No sipping so if your not in the dunes you might as well get a MT without sipping or better yet a MT or aggressive AT with sipping
