What All Terrain tire do you guys reccomend?

I am looking for recommendations for an All Terrain 10 Ply tire that gets good tread wear and handles well and has a stiff side wall and handles loads as well. Tire size will be a 285-75-r16. I'm not worried about price. I've looked online, but I wanted to get the opinion and experience of fellow Super Duty owners. Thanks for any help.

I had a set of BFG ATs on my truck before, 285/75/16. They had 45K when I took them off, and had just under half tread... Off road traction may not be the best with them, but they last forever on the street. Upgraded to 315/75/16 BFG ATs. I considered other brands, but when it came down to it, I was spending $1100 on tires and knew how long these would last.

I really like nitto, those tires have always treated me good, but cant tell ya on the big trucks....always had them on my midsize trucks...but they did great...but a tire i would look into is the duratrac....its kinda a cross breed between a m/t and an a/t....its got an agressive look, but rides like an a/t.....and the prices arent to bad either...

I ran 285 nittos on a 1/2 ton and hauled a few mid sized trailers. The tires were bald (nearly smooth) at 45K. I run 10 plys on all my trucks, never know when you might need to steal a tire off of the truck sitting in the shop.

I'm not happy with the Hancook MT tires, they are very agressive and ride ok but i dont like them with trailers, I took them off a 1ton and put them on my 1/2 ton.

I have 285/55 20 michellins on my dmax and they ride and pull great but they dont hold up on rock roads (chewed up BAD). Seem to get decent traction off road. I will end up going with Silent Armor tires when the time comes. Michellins were on the truck when I bought it and they have 50K on them (1/3 tread ATLEAST) according to the receipt.

I had good luck with Silent Armors and Duratracs on my 1ton farm trucks.

I got 60K out of my silent armors and they are still on the truck with alittle more than 1/4 tread. They arent very agressive but i never had a problem getting them to throw mud and they pull trailers great! Haul alot of equip on that truck grossing ~30K on a hotshot rig.

My duratracs (2 sets) have 35K on them with alittle less than 1/2 tread. They will shred the ground they drive on, pull good, and arent terrible loud. Gross 30-40K with a load of hay frequently, they are on my hay hauling/farm trucks.

My truck had 285/75/16 BFG at's on it when I bought it. They look good but I really didn't care for them. Snow traction was bush league at best and they don't wear real well. I have a set of Michelin LTX ms 2's and couldn't be happier. They wear like iron and don't cup the insides like the bfg's. I know they aren't all terrains but because I don't ever go offroad or in the mud it doesn't matter to me. I haul heavy loads in the bed and the weight rating and stability is awesome. A 4 thousand pound mold isn't anything unusual

How about the AT version? Those are MTs.
I have the ATm's. Haven't pulled a trailer yet very far with it. One I did was about 10 miles, and it was heavy. They were fine to me.

Had them on a company truck once and they were ok but I never pulled a "real" trailer. It was an 06 F250 5.4 EXcab LB. I did have plenty of tread left after ~25K when I went back to school.

The MT's had more roll than my duratracs and i didnt like it. Had a polaris 800 in the bed and 10K of seed on a bumper pull trailer and the truck handled like crap with hancooks, but very simaler load with the duratracs was no problem.

The MT Dynapros were fairly quiet (considering their design), NEVER get stuck, and ride nice just dont like the handling.

I would venture to guess the molding between AT and MT is the same with a differnet tread rolled on so I am not inclined to try AT's myself.

BFG AT are the best I have run. Have tried others bridgestones, generals, yokahomma etc. always come back to the BFG's. If you keep your tires rotated every 5-7k and truck aligned they will wear great and not cup as stated by others up to 55-60k miles after that plenty of tread left but will start wearing bad and the ride will get a little rough. On top of that they look the best!

i had bfg 265 75 r16s on my OBs and used them on an active logging road of gravel n washboard mix and they took a beating but never let me down. Best comprimise of a tire, ill very likely get them again.

I put brand new 285s on the the truck two weeks before i sold it and still kick myself, i only paid 600 bucks balanced on rims. Live and learn i guess.

i currently have toyo open country a/ts and they seem ok but they are a tighter pattern and dont like mud.
