How are your tires wearing?

Just wanted to see if anyone is running nitto mud grapplers, M/T baja atz's or toyo mud country's. If so, how many miles are you getting out of them and are they noisy. Those are the 3 styles I can get from my work in a 35x12.50R20. Don't like the width of the 325/60R20. Mud grapplers are the cheapest which surprises me but just can't see getting any real mileage out of them.

My rear two have lasted about 15k miles... and they're gone.

The front two look almost new

I don't even rotate since I'm just going to buy 2 new rears.

I have a buddy with a dumplin diesel(cummins) and he only got about 30,000 out of his tires with no towin. If you tow you will obviously get less.

I have heard the toyo mt's wear really good, the mtz's are supposed to be pretty good too. I havent read anyone getting much over 20k out of a set of mud grapplers. A tire thats not on your list but I am extremely extremely happy with is my procomp xtreme at's. They arent a mt and you might not be able to get em through work but if you can check em out

I think I'm leaning toward the atz's. Mud grapplers look so awesome but just don't think they would be very economical.

the Mud Grapplers are the best looking but are they noisy and they only got roughly 25K miles and they were shot,i like the Toyo's better for myself.

just a thought, look into the kumho road venture m/t. Just put a set on 37x13.5x20 load rated E on my truck, so far very quiet, minimal weight to balance,spun true on the balancer, I'm very happy with them. Just don't know how long they will last, can't find anyone running them, but at $315 each I'll give it a shot
