    more than list-able
    Duratracks are one of the best. Bfg at's are an aggressive looking, long lasting AT tire.

    Check out the Yokohama Geolanders ATS. An all terrain tread that is incredibly quiet and smooth as glass on the highway.

    I lost less than 1 MPG going from 245 Dunlops to 265/75 Hankook Dynapro ATs. They're quiet and still look new (I'm approaching 15K miles on them). They have a good looking sidewall tread. The Wrangler Duratracs seem nice too.

    Good compromise on all levels
