Toyo's are pretty good. I've had good luck with the Nitto terra Grapplers. I'm running a set of Mickey Thompson's right now that have 23K on them and are still in good shape.

I'am currently running hankook dynapro atm...they are well mannered on the asphalt. I have also run Nitto terra grapplers however,the hankooks are quieter but the jury is still out on how they will wear over time. But so far I prefer the hankook.....imo
hope this helps

I put Goodyear MT/R with Kevlar tires on my F150 and I drive a lot of miles for work around the Midwest. They are excellent in mud and snow both. I don't think that they are noisey at all. I got just over 60,000 miles on my first set of them.

Toyos Nitros or Cooper ( I think they are the AP3 now, used to be ATR)

Go to tire rack and do a comparison.

My Sequoia eats tires. I've had
Bridgestone H/T (original) ~40k, nothing special.
Bridgestone A/T Revo ~40k, very quiet at first, good traction, got noisy
Continental LX something ~40k, nothing special (but were highly rated at the time)
Michelin LTX MS2, best so far with ~12k (also have them on a Highlander)

Did You ever find out why the Bridgestone A/T got noisy later?
Was it the tire or Your vehicle?

I think it was my vehicle. The treads got "cupped" well before they were worn out. A friend had better luck on a Chevy pickup.

I've since replaced the shocks and struts, but I read online (:-(?) that Sequoias eat tires.

On 3rd set of Michelin LTX M/S. First set - 95,000 on 2002 Yukon XL 3/4 ton(110,000 total miles on truck).2nd set pushed just over 105,000 on 2005 Yukon XL 3/4 ton. 3rd set have about 65,000 miles on them - same 2005 Yukon XL (171,000+ on truck). Think I'll get another 30 - 35,000 miles on tires before winter 2013/2014 comes and change again. I use load range "E" and have 8.1liter with 4.10 gears. Lots of highway driving at 70+miles per hour. The tires are spendy but I'm very happy with ride, noise, off road traction and of course milage on tires. I push them to the limit mileage wise and change before the snow flies here in Wisconsin.

Good luck with your decision

I vote for the hankook dynapro's. Not a better tire for the money to be had IMO. I also like BFG AT KO's but they are getting pricey.

Had the BFG AT K/O on a 2007 Tundra with a 3 hole MTCK. 65,000 on it when I traded it in, and still had decent tread on them. A buddy had Terra Grapplers on a Chevy with a 3 hole, and was eating up the tires.

Haha....I've been there before trying to decide, and made the mistake of asking and got a lot of good suggestions which only confused me more. I can't tell you there may not be a perfect tire out there for you, but I would just about guarantee you will be extremely pleased and will not regret the Terra Grapplers.

Bridgestone AT Revo one of the best tires on the road and won't wear down premature due to the weight of your truck. Just remember E load rating.

I love the ride and traction of my Hancooks.... the first thing I noticed with them is when traveling behind a tractor trailer in the rain ,at70- 75 mph, there was no loose feeling . THEY HELD the road. They do well in the field for me also...the only tire I will get again

I'm on my 2nd set of Goodyear Duratrac's. I drive a GMC 2500HD and 1st set lasted a little over 45K miles. Very good off-road and relatively quiet on hardball. I had the Toyo AT's previously and the Duratrac's beat them hands down.

Nitto terra grapplers. Just make sure you rotate every 5k miles or so.

I put Michelin LTX load range E on my 2500 with a chassis mount. They are great on the road and passable in mud, though I try not to get in much, if I can help it. They don't look very cool, though. I had Bridgestones before and they were nice also. I like have had good luck with Michelin so buy them for most of my cars. Nittos look the coolest.

Good years are decent if you rotate religiously. Toyo's AT tire is crap in the mud. Nitto terra grappler is probably best bang for your buck in versatility and mileage. If I was you I would get toyo's mud tire. Not noisy, good in the mud, can get 70K out of them if you rotate decently, and they look good.

I use the BFG All Terrain T/As. Quiest on the road, great traction in snow, Not bad in mud. Around 60,000 mile tread life. The Michelins LTX are pretty decent also, but only lasted about 30,000.

Great tires but that isn't the kind of life I get out of mine, I would call them a 45,000 mile tire. I was actually very happy with the stock Goodyear wrangler A/T tires that came on my Chevy. Might look at them again.

I'm going to go with the BFG's, had a set on a 2500 HD and pulled a dove tail trailer loaded with mowing equipment and got 83,000 out of them, just make sure you have them rotated reg.
