Michelins are the nicest and why they are one of the most expensive. I've never heard anyone say they wouldn't buy them again. I've been using Yokohama Geolander G056 on my trucks . Never had a problem with them. Good highway ride and also good in off road. I do mostly highway driving with mine plus some towing of my 5th wheel and going a bit off road when I go duck hunting. You can get them off Tire Rack for about $210/tire. I buy them from Tire Rack and pick them up in Delaware. Home of tax free shopping
Anyway, whatever tire people are used to using are the ones the will swear by regardless of price. So it's hard to take recommendations from the internet. I think you will want to check out various tire sites and read the reviews from users. I like how Tire Rack does it where in you can see all the various tires in your size and see how consumers ranked each category.
