i would stick with an all terrain. you get the best of both worlds, good offroad traction, and a long lasting tire.
im running bridgestone revos, they last a long time, and ive never been stuck yet.

not sure about the nittos, maybe someone else has an idea.

I just bought Yokohama Geolander AT+IIs and like them so far. I bought them on basis of several recommendations re: longevity, traction, etc. They get good reviews on tirerack.com too. I have heard complaints (and praise, but not as much) about the Nittos.

I'm running 37x13.5x18 Pro Comp Extreme AT's. they are going to be the only tire I run. I've got 8,000 miles all highway, and can't see any wear yet. They are quiet and ride smooth. I was going to be toyo m/t's but talked to a couple of guys that had them on diesels and they said they chewed the front tires up. I tow a 10,000 lb loader regurally on a bumper pull trailer and the sidewalls hold it well. They have good traction in the dirt also, did a sled pull and they hooked up well. They have about 3/4" of tread depth when they are new. This will be the only tire I buy from now on!!!!!

I guess I'll plug my new BFG A/T KO's. Got 'em for a song at NTB and I love them. They are a lot better than my old SSR TSL Radials. I do mostly highway driving as well. I just wish BFG would make the 315/70/16's in load range E instead of D. That would make me feel a lot better about towing with them. Maybe next set I'll drop down to a smaller tire, but then again, my truck would look goofy with nearly stock sized tires and a 4" lift.

i love my BFG mud terrains. i've had them on a few trucks and they work great off road and wear well on the highway. i put quite a few miles on my truck and have yet to find a tire which i like more. i use them for pretty much everything my truck is my daily driver as well as my tow rig and my off road toy.

BFG MT's to me seems like the best all around tire. Had them on all my old trucks including my current before the lift. Last set has 32K with lotta tread left before I did the suspension and switched to 35" Swampers. They are still mounted on my stockers for camping/hunting trips for those mean/rough lava crossings (lava we got here in Hawaii reekz havoc on tires. BF MT's and AT's seem to handle it the best). I'd swap out my SSR's in a heartbeat if BF made them wider than 12.5's. Just my .02

I run the BFG a/t on my truck and do alot of hauling. Ichecked into the load range issue and the D's are not that far from being E's. So i would not think you should worry about the weight issue. Also they so well on and off road
