I run Goodyear Silent Armour 33's. They are relatively quiet. Not sure if the make a 35" tire.

Toyo AT2 in 35/12.5-17 are very quiet and smooth. BFG Ko2's are also quiet and smooth. both are great choices.

My buddy went from 35" ProComp MTs to 35" Goodyear Duratracs: his wife and kids love the newfound smoothness of their JKUR.

I have 33" Duratracs on my Sahara and they are quiet...

How much off-road capability do you want? The Toyo ATII is a great tire...

Another good tire for on road is the Dick Cepek Trail Country in 315/70-17. It's also an 8 ply so it should have a nicer ride than the 10 ply tires...

recent engineering brought out new all terrain tires that are quiet, long lasting, and durable. Toyo AT2 are my favorite ... late 2012/early 2013, and the KO2's late 2014/ early2015.

I have KO2's and they are very quiet and a recent trip to Sedona, AZ they did fantastic off road aired down to 20 PSI.

The Toyo AT-2 is the quietest tire that I've run that had acceptable performance in mud.
Great in snow and on the street too.

My Duratracs are nice riding and not noisy. Handled a semi-muddy tilled under cornfield nicely last Saturday.

The main question remains; which is the lightest? The original 255/75R18 BFGs that came on my JKU were 40lbs. I replaced them with 275/70R18 Nitto Terra Grappler G2s at 57lbs. each. I'm looking to up the size again to 295/75, but without adding another 10lbs. or so per tire. So, any input based on weight? Tire manufacturers seem to ignore stating weight specs on their sites.
