TIRE HELP!!!!

Ok so I'm looking for some new tires to purchase. I want something aggressive but something that will last me a long time. Not like 5 years long time but a year and half at least. I looked into the Super Swamper SS-M16's, Mickey Thompson ATZ's, and Nitto Terra Grappler's. I honestly like the SS-M16's the best but didn't known if anybody's had good luck with them on longevity and mileage that they got out of them. Im open to other tires too, those were just some i looked at already and liked. Another thing they have to be 35/12.5/20. THANKS! Any imput would be greatly appreciated!!!

I have ran M/T MTZ's and Toyo M/T's and had great luck with both. The key to good tire wear is the frequency of rotation. I got around 50k miles with both sets.

I got 50k out of my Toyo mts also. It's one of the best tires for a heavy truck. My buddy has atz on his Superduty and they are over three years old now and look brand new still.
I have also ran three sets of nittos. Crap tires. I didn't get 15k out of any of them.

thanks for the input on tire selection. My brother has the ATZ's and i know many people who have ran them and loved them. Ive heard some saying the MTZ's wear pretty quick, but like you said tire rotation is key. I think I'm gonna call about the ATZ's and TOYO's.
