Default 37" tire options

I'm finally about to order tires for my TJ and had originally planned on going with trailworthyfab recentered h1's and 37" grooved bfg baja tires. After pricing this all out (approx. 1900 shipped) and reading reviews of multiple people having issues with balancing I'm becoming convinced that these are not the way to go for a daily driver. I'm looking for a good offroad tire that is still decent in the street, and have come up with these options:

Maxxis Trepadors
Goodyear MTR/k
BFG M/T km2 (may be out of price range)
Yokohama Geolanders M/T plus

I would like some input on these options from anyone who has run the tires listed or has an option I left out. Jeep is daily driven, d44's locked with 4.88's. I make several trips a year to twisted trails, have plans to hit rocks and valleys as well as a possible trip to Harlan.

I have km2's and love them! I've never had them on the road though, but on the trail they are awesome. great mud traction, excellent grip.

Geolanders, better price. Then you can take the extra cash and buy me some coors.

Buy CHEVYRCKS 37 MTRs. Unless you have some seriously good connections, you won't find a better price when buying new.
