New tires

Alright guys I dont want to but I need new tires for winter. I am looking to getting some all terrains that last. Possibly mud terrains. My buddy had Firestone Destination M/T on his old chevy before he traded it in so I dont know how long they would last. My other buddy suggested Nitto Terra A/ts how do they last? Or what other can you suggest? There are just street tires on my truck now and they suck in the snow and dont look tough but they still have tread so no reason to change. Any suggestions?

I have used BFG A/T on all my trucks. I get great wear out of them. I have 30,000 on the current ones and they still look new.
Can't beat them in the wet traction vs. off road traction.
i have no worries about going offroad with them and making it out and I have great traction in the wet also.

I also suggest BF Goodrich A/T. I also like Bridgestone Dueler A/T.

I do not suggest bfg a/t. I suggest very strongly that you stay away from them. I like pro comp xtreme a/t or toyo m/t and i also like good year wrangles that come stock on the new trucks. If you are just looking for something good and cheat and have a big o near you i run their a/t on some of my vehicles and they work great have a warranty and look decent as well.

I have used the Firestone Destination A/T's before and they were great. Felt very stable and responsive no matter what the road conditions were.

I'm running GoodYear Silent Armor Pro Grade, I like them way better than the Firestone Destination AT's that my dad's running on his '350.
I've heard the non Pro Grade version of the tire is "crap" on my friends Ex. (softer compound, swaying at high speeds)
I've been up to 85 and she owned the road.
IDK about wear they were on when I bought it I'm guessing 50k+
