Bias ply tires will ALWAYS let you know that you're on bias ply tires. What I mean is, they will SUCK on-road, but off-road, will bulge like champs, and give you a fair bit more max grip. The perennial favorites are from Interco Tire, known as Super Swampers. They range from wild to insane, and GRIP in anything but ice, like any M/T. Maxxis also makes the Creepy Crawler, which is also pretty gnarly.
If you plan on driving it on-road more than a little, radials are a great choice. There are some pretty radical radials these days. They offer improved on-road ride, and often sacrifice little in terms of on-road handling. Interco also makes some sick radial M/T's, as do Goodyear, BFGoodrich, and Dick Cepek. Mickey Thompson, Nitto, Toyo, and others also make good M/T's, but the first three tend to be the stickiest of the icky in the nasty stuff.
What kind of terrain will you be running? That'll be a big factor in narrowing down your top choices- Mark W.
