Help me decide which 33's to go with

What I'm looking for is onroad performance, offroad performance, longevity, and NOT losing mileage. With emphasis on mileage. I'll be getting 33's in whatever tire I decide to go with.

Nitto terra grapplers- heard nothing but good thigns about them. Great offroad and onroad; dunno about mileage

Goodyear duratracs- Had them on my HUMMER (as do lots of people). Awesome onroad, awesome in snow, awesome offroad, and they dont hit mileage at ALL. BUT, i've heard that on bigger trucks they aren't tough enough of a tire

Hankook dynapro atms- My buddy has them; excellent wear, excellent onroad, pretty decent offroad, and mileage doesnt seem to be phased too much

Dick Cepek- Cant rmember the model.. but I've also heard good things about them (any more input on this one?

I like my duratracs, a little squishy on the sidewall, mostly when towing. But overall im happy with them

I'm looking for 33" equivalents myself. I'm interested in hearing others feedback on this subject.

I like the look of the fc2, I have them in 305, my truck spends 50% off road . I have had bf mubbies/ all terains and micky thompson mtz, I forund the Dick cepeks to be the best all rounder by far. I didnt see any change in millage over stock tyres.

I just got Terra Grapps last month, love em.

However, it was a pain in the azz finding them and had them shipped in from Texas becuase I was told they are on backorder from Nitto 3-6 months

I have terra grapplers on my rig. LOVE THEM!!! Have 35k on them now and still a good looking tire. I didn't seem to have issues finding them, but that was in February. Make sure you get the load E... had a set of cheap D's on before and the truck actually was chucking rubber out of them.

Good info on the Grapps guys. But hows fuel economy with them? I will be doing a LOT of traveling with the truck, and I dont want a hit in economy. Thats a big deal for me.
