Perfect off-highway tire = LTX? What?

Just bought a used Sequoia with a brand new set of these. I was digging on their highway manners and snow ability but I was thinking I would need to replace them with AT's before summer off-road trips, but I guess not! My impression from reading a few other reviews of these is that if you are buying a more aggressive tire you are probably just doing it for the looks. That's probably an overstatement, but you get the gist.

Family in Michigan runs these on all their SUVs its by far the best winter/summer tire regarding traction and over all performance.

However!!! I’m on the west coast and do lots of hot long trips in the summers talking 100-119 degree outside temps the pavement is even hotter! I found Michelins just don’t last long at all in my use / conditions. But!!!!! BFG tires and Michelins come out of the same manufacturing plant. I found the BFGs get a tougher rubber compound and do much better in my high temp region. So I tend to go BFG route vs Michelins on the west coast. BFG makes other tires besides KO2’s. However I liked my KOs on my J80. My 2019 Expedition isn’t a KO2s rig. But high probability it will have BFGs on it after the stock tires are done.
I'm interested in people's thoughts on this. I'm looking for a tire similar to this for a vehicle that is going to see a lot of sandy, dirt roads, but no real off roading, and this seems perfect. I live in Las Vegas though so for 3 months a year it's 100+ every day. Would these wear too quickly? And if they would, any recommended alternatives? What's the BFG version?

🧐 what seeds you for that comparison?
?
I’ve ran BFG Ko’s, BFG Rugged Terrains, Michelin LTX’s, Yokohama stuff.

The BFG Advantage Sport has been my top favorite highway / occasional dirt tire. I’ll be putting them on my Expedition when the cheap squishy factory tires are done.

As for soft sand any tire like this will be performant.
Well a lot of the "dirt" roads are rockier than sandy, but the softer areas are where my current tires perform less well. I was considering Geolander A /T GO15s for a little extra traction/protection, but the Michelins sound like a good option too.
