BFG ATs on a 15x8s is what I have. Not silent, but really quiet, esp. if you keep them rotated. The new BFG AT-KO tire is really hot and claims to be even better than the previous ones.

Another quiet long lasting (but less aggressive than the BFG) is the Michelin ATs. I've heard good things about these, but they looked too tame for me.

Rims? steel or alloy? lots of choices. I have American racing alloys and they've been good to me. Steel rims are alot cheaper.

Re: Tires and Rims

Try the Bridgestone Dueler AT's if you are wanting an all around higher-end AT tire. I've used mine on sand, hard pack, snow, ice, and lighter mud with great results. They are fairly quiet for an AT and should give you 50-60k before replacement if most of your miles are on-road. I've also used the Michelin AT, but would not buy them again....fairly expensive, not very aggressive in mud, and after 30k miles, started to wear unevenly. I have also used the BFG's, but they annoyed me on the highway, altho I think they are about the same as the Bridgestone in aggressiveness offroad. I have not used the new BFG KO, altho I have to wonder if they improved the onroad handling characteristics and noise. Bridgestone has a 30 day ride guarantee (the only reason I even bothered to try them in the first place!!), so try out a set and if they annoy you, you can always take em back.

Definitely go with the Bridgestone Duelers. I have had them on every 4-wheel drive that I've ever owned. There is absolutely no other tire on the market that gives the total package of traction, quietness, ride, and mileage. I highly recommend them to anyone looking all-terrain tires.
