You'll want to post just a bit more detail.
What year, make and model?
What size are the factory tires if you are looking to replace them.
Any lifts in your future?
Define "off roading"
Are you going to be trying to climb rocks, boulders, heavy slickrock steps, where you might want a very lugged specialty tread?
Mud contests where you again might want a very aggressive specialty deep lugged tread?
Or just the occasional "lets see whats over there"?
As an all around tire for SUVs it is difficult to beat the Michelin M+S/2 for quietness, traction, handling, water, modest winter driving, and more off road capability than you'd expect. I tried the Michelin AT/2 and about the only difference I noted on zero trail type offroading was that it was noisier with a bit less tread wear and no notable more traction than the M+S/2. However, neither is what you'd call a hard core off road for something like a Rubicon.
