What tires should i get?

Itll be time soon to get tires again and i need some opnions and experience. i pulled trailers to local rv factories and need to tire that will help with my fuel milage and longevity. i stay on the road most of the time but the yard does get snowy and have to get in some pretty nasty lots.

Wrangler Silent Armor, great on the road, good winter traction, not a ton of road noise. I have a set on my 20" Rockstars for the summer

I have a set of bfg all terrains on my rig right now, I would tell you not to get them imo, I went from a set of cooper discover st's and loved them in the snow, but they do have a bit of a growl, but way less sidewall flex when towing. I've heard great things about the good year silent armors, but the coopers did me very well, they're made in America, and are reasonably priced compared to other new tires, my next set will be coopers, probably the zeon's or the st maxx. Guys at work have both, pull 12k trailers through the mountains in the snow and can't (or don't) complain...

On a side note I got 50k out of my coopers, and at 20k on the bfg's I'm already looking for a new set...

My last set of BFG ATs had right at 40k on them, and were just under half tread. Sold the two good ones on CL for $100.

For a mostly highway tire, I'd look into something like the Michellin LTX or Firestone Transforce AT. BFG also makes a tire called the Commercial TA that will last a long time.

Firestone Destination A/T seem to be rated very well. It may be a good option for your requirements.

I pull trailers every day with my 350 dually. Ive tried pretty much all of the options. By far the longest lasting are Firestone Transforce. If you have 4wd then go with the H/T's all year. If 2wd then put A/T's on the rear or all the way around for the winter. Rotated properly, I have gotten 70,000 miles out of a set on my dually. Of course that was not pulling too much weight. Just small trailers and such.
