Nitto or BFG's?

Guys, its time to replace the rubber on the truck and I am lookimg at 285/60/18 E rated rubber. 2 options, Nitto Tera grapllers or BFG all terrain's

Looking for feedback from guys that have these tire.

I use my truck like a truck, tow 15-18K regularly, off road a lot at the deer lease and drive highway miles all day long. I do rotate and balance tires every 6-7K and watch my air pressure.

The Nitto's are cheaper but if they dont last 45K they havent saved me any $.

Any advice is appreciated

Thanks

I like the Nitto because of the tread pattern it will clean itself better than the BFG in mud that is. BFG has a tight tread pattern Nitto is a little more aggressive looking due to the look of the side wall tread.

nittos look better in my opinion but the bfg will be a higher mileage tire!
I am putting the nitto on my truck because i have had the bfg and i want something new.

I've had both and the BFG is going to last far longer. The Nittos (I have on now) are a great tire, stick awesome, do great in the rain but, they are soft..... REAL SOFT. I've got about 18k miles on them and they are over half gone. I don't do burn outs either. Even though the size I have (325/65R18) are rated at 3000 lbs per tire, they can't handle it and wear fast when loaded. Just some input. Both are quality tires. Just pic the right one for what you need.

Perelli Scorpion is a good choice too. I had the Nittos and loved them for traction and the wore evenly on all 4 corners,got about 38,000 out of them.(I was a little rough on them)

Both are GREAT tires. Like it's been said before, the BFG has better highway manners and will last longer but the nitto looks a bit better, IMO, and has an edge off road. But of course if your looking for an "off road tire" there's better options. If it were me I'd go BFG / at. Good choice either way you go though
