    I went with none of these, I found some Procomp Xterrains all 5 for with wheels, So i sold the wheels on the Comps and my 2 tires that where good, and out the door I paid 650 remounted and balanced. I got them 18/32, new spare at 21/32 so I was extremely happy, then I got to use them at Jeepin for Jugs and they where amazing, dropped Air pressure from 35 to 25 and ran the whole day no problems no damage to the tires.

    I'm running the Goodyear Fierce Attitude MT, and I love them. Great off road, and run relatively quiet on the street.

    I'm about 75% sure that my next tire will be the Goodyear MT/R Kevlar 40x14.5 R 17's

    You should do the chalk test on your tires to make sure you're not running too high of pressure.

    lol no you take chalk and draw a line from side to side of the tire about an inch thick. Then you drive down the road in a straight line, im talking like 20 ft here or a couple of rotations of the tires. Then stop and see where the chalk has rubbed off. If it rubbed off the center then its over inflated, if it rubbed off the outsides it underinflated.
