YJ tire selection

I have a 94 yj on 35s... I need to replace them. I currently have BFGs A/T 35x12.5x 15. Not married to the BFGs, Any suggestions on brands or classic look. I was looking at the Dick Cepek ...I do want to stay with the same size and raised white lettering... Thanks

Currently have the following 35x12.5x15 tires on my three rigs.

Mickey Thompson MTZ
Goodyear Wrangler MT/R

BFG is my least favorite of the three. Significantly smaller than the other tires and they wear fast. Goodyear MT/R is the best of the three tires. Strong sidewall and fairly long lasting tread. The Mickey Thompson’s are very soft and hook up well On rocks but are getting somewhat chunky.

A few months ago I purchased a set of Discount Tires cheaper tires, Nankang 889. Been happier with these than the BFG M/T's that were on the YJ when I bought it.
The Nankang's are much quieter, smoother riding and I think equal to if not better offroad than the BFG's

'98 TJ 5 speed, 5.13 Super 35, D30 w/Aussie, Core 4x4 arms, Metalcloak front track bar, JKS rear track bar, ZJ tie rod conversion, 9500 Lb winch 4" lift sitting on 33's along with many others mods
'94 YJ 5sp 5.13, Super 35, HP30 w/Aussie, sitting on 33's, RE chromo drag link, 9500 Lb winch, 4" lift, 4x4 Posi Lock, it's a resto-mod in progress.

Check out 4 Wheel Parts as well, they are having a petty good sale going on right now. Not only that, but Pro Comp tires (who they collab with) almost always are very competitively priced. Just not sure what they would have in stock for a classic look with good white lettering.

I tried a pair of Nankang’s but they where much smaller, diameter wise, than the Procomp’s that where on the rear. I was replacing my tires in pairs cause money was short and had a lot of things to fix on the Jeep.

Ended up taking them back and bought Falken Wildpeak MT’s. Couldn’t be happier. Low road noise for MT’s and were truer in size than the Nankang’s, 33x12.5.
