Best overall tire?

I want something that cleans out well but also is good as a drivable tire that will get a considerable amount of mileage before taking a crap on me, but also something that looks pretty meaty like an offroad tire should

ProComp XTerrain? Not as "streetable" as like a BFG AT, but it does clean better. Worse treadwear, and more road noise, but definately a more aggressive tire.

BFG Mud's have served me as well as a few other people...good off-road and on, they just hum a little bit on road but not much..

The Goodyear MTR's are holding up well for me.

Anybody used the Yoko Geolander A/T + III? I've heard they have the same grip as a BFG AT KO, but better on road handling and braking. They are also $91 (265/75-16) and a KO is $154 for the same size.

I'll soon be going with Pirelli Scorpion ATs. I have head great things from lots of people... Great all around performance, as well as good traction in snow and moderate off-road conditions.
