    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.
