Tire input needed

I am looking to buy new tires for my 97 Psd. I drive it a good bit but have a DD car and will be towing 8k on and off through the year . So Im looking for something aggressive looking but good road manors and good on ice and snow. I was looking at BFG AT, DC Mud country, Mickey ATZ and Pro Comp Extreme MT. Looking for any input or suggestion on these or other tires.

97 XLT EX Cab long box 4X4
DIY 6637 intake
Shimmed FPR
4" AFE exhuast system
Autometer Gauges
Tony wildman Chip.
More to come as finances allow!

BFG AT ALL THE WAY!! I'm buy a new set in a couple weeks. Many people will argue that the Nitto Terra Grapplers are better, but personally I love the BFGs. Good Luck!

I run BFG AT's and MT's on my off road trucks and can tell you they are one of the best tires I have ever run, good road maners and tread wear. The AT's do awesome in the snow, mud or dirt, they are a true all terrain tire.

imo the bfg's are overpriced and there are better performing tires
2 of my friends have ran them on 3 different trucks and they hated them all

but there are also plenty of people that seem to like them

Make sure what ever you get is rated for the weight of a diesel truck, at least D but E are better, also look at the actual load capacity in pounds because the D and E refers to the number of plies and the actual load capacity varies wildly.

I have 315-75-16 Maxis buckshot mudders on mine and they handle okay for suck a big tire. As best as I can member they are rated at over 3,200 pounds each and are D’s, they were $750 mounted and balanced. I used to run the Wal-Mart liberators in a 285-75-16, they ran great and lasted over 65,000 miles, they were $400 mounted and balanced and had a fairly high weight rating but they didn’t have them in a 315 so I went with the Buckshots this time. The BFG’s look good, what do they cost?
