My MT/R's with Kevlar are great on the road, great when its wet out and amazing in the snow. Off road they are better than any tire I've ever ran or any tire any of my friends or brothers have used on their rigs. Hence why I'm on my third set on my XK.
I live just outside of Buffalo NY and we get some reall crappy weather out here too!

The tires he wants don't exist. He needs to decide which 2 of the 3 things he listed are important....
If price is the least of concerns, then depending on size there are quite a few aggressive looking tires with great road manners (Xteme AT's, Duratracs, ATZs, etc). But if he wants cheap, then he's going to have to give up looks and get an A/T (Hankook Dynapro, Gabber AT2, etc), or give up road manners and get a cheaper M/T.
