I am about to buy some new tires and wanted to get some opinions on what tires people are running and how many miles they have lasted. I want some good A/T tires with the aggressive look. I will be running 285/70/17.

Where are you located and what do you want to use them for? Snow/ice? Dirt/mud?

I was strongly considering the DuraTracs before I settled on the Hankook Dynapro ATM

Nitto Dura Grapplers have been the best for me. 60,000 miles and still got plenty of tread left. If you want more aggessive look at the Terra Grapplers.

I put a set of Pro Comp AT's on last August and I wouldn't recomend them to my worst enemy. Within the first 3,000 miles, which was 80-90% highway driving, they were completely chewed up and loosing big chuncks of rubber out of the tread blocks. My truck was freshly aligned when they were put on. They looked like they had 40,000 miles of rock climbing on them. I now have 12,000 on them and tread depth is down to maybe a third. Pro Comps supposed 50,000 mile tread wear warranty is a joke. I've been fighting with them for months. All they keep saying is "it looks like abuse on your part". My a$$! Front and rear both look the same. They won't do a thing. $250 apiece for total garbage. Worst tires and customer service I've ever had.

Cooper Zeon LTZ. I got the 265's from Tire Barn here in Indaina and they were $798 mounted, balanced, w/road hazzard and a 50K milage warranty.

I live in east Tennessee and they will be used mostly for daily driving with some off road and what little bit of snow we get in this area. What I am looking for is a good all purpose tire with a nice aggressive look. I have also been considering running 315/70/17 as opposed to the 285s listed on the original post.

I would look at the bridgestone's they make a 315 that is E rated and are supposed to be very chip resistant

I've had my Cooper s/t's for over 25k miles. Still have plenty of tread left. Driving is more pavement than not, but they are quite capable in the mud and muck of fields, farms, and orchards. Traction on wet pavement requires special attention with the skinny pedal. They do fairly well in the snow though. Look fairly aggressive, though road noise is still acceptable....nothing like the Swampers I had before. Also, the ride quality is pretty good for a 'D' range tire. I will definitely buy them again.

I'd recommend the Dynapro ATM for those uses. I wouldn't expect them to clean out too well in mud, like most AT's, but they look ok IMO and the price is right. I got my set at $1000 OTD.

Unless you're planning to run a leveling kit, I'd stay away from 315s. Plenty of people have had rubbing problems with anything bigger than a 305 on stock height suspension.

I have had good luck with my BFG AT's 315's. Im not sure why they seem to get a lot of negative reviews on this board. I will be getting a new set soon but I want E rated . I think some sizes of the BFG AT's are now available in an E rated tire .I think only in certain sizes though. Anyone know?

That sucks man. Ive bee running those tires for about 30,000 miles with no issues at all. And i'm towing a 10,000 pound travel trailer. Maybe you just got a bad batch. Ive heard of these tires having issues. Maybe I just got lucky. Mine are the extreme ay's. if it makes a difference.

No, not with a 4.5 backspacing and the lift. I did at first when I was running stock rims, even with the lift.

I know you said a/t but my Nitto Mud Grapplers have held up great under some heavy abuse. Got approx. 40K on them and still have 2-3 32nds before they are down to the 2 32nds mark... not bad for a mud terrain.
