Question Need help choosing tire brand!

Hey yall!

anybody here know about tires? I am planning on getting some new 35" A/T tires for my new rims that I got. I drive alot around the city and do highway driving on the weekends. I rarely touch the mud, not a big fan of offroading. I cant seem which to decide on buying out of these competitors, Nitto A/T, Toyo A/T, or Kumho A/T, what would be the best tire to buy? something with not much road noise and smooth driving.

I've got the ProComp Xtreme A/T's 35's on my rig and I love 'em. Not loud for city/highway driving and they seem to do just fine in mud/soft dirt fields I'll let you know about sand after July 21.......

No offense but with my expirences pro-comps are junk. They are loud and ride like doo doo. I'de say go with Toyo Open Country A/T's. I can't hear them at all even with the windows down and they ride smooth. The Nitto Terra Grapplers are a good tire also.
