Do you have any photos? Rubicon tires, hmm. Sounds like the ones I saw in 4WheelOnline a while back.

Nice.  I had BFG on my 1993 Cherokee - they were a great all around tire. Outperformed a lot of other similar guys simply based on the merits of that tire. Especially the wet grass and underlying clay like soil we get around here and KY. Mostly trails and towing dirt bikes to riding areas.

I stupidly put Hankooks on my 2012 Liberty - Worst tire ever.  Very slippery in the rain/wet and all but useless on light mud wet grass - never again. I can't wait to get rid of them...

I don't think you can generalize about the suitability of a given tire brand for various driving conditions. BFG, Hankook, and every other major manufacturer makes different model tires for different purposes. If you buy their racing slicks, you ought not to complain about lack of traction in mud or snow.  ;)

Hankook's entry in the All-Terain market is the Dynapro, which comes in several sizes and variations. I have no personal experience with that model.   I've used the BFG TA on a big SUV, though, and it handled most conditions well but was very noisy on the pavement.
