Tire help!

I'm currently running Toyo Open Country A/T's in 275 65 18 load range e. They look awesome on the truck (different than stock size so it gives the truck a nice stance) do great in snow, sand and mud but they do not last. I tow daily and the rear tires wear out within months. Unfortunatly they are also way overpriced. Even an extra charge for the white lettering which I like!

I honestly don't have time to rotate tires every few weeks. I have been driving f.350 powerstrokes for many years towing the same trailer and have never had this problem until I bought Toyo's. Are the Toyo's super soft rubber or something?

Can you recommend a better priced tire with the same performance as the Toyo's? I have gone through 3 sets in two years.... Hankook rf10's? I had those once but the truck they were on was totaled and I never got much experience with them.

I'm on the road all day long, bouncing around, local driving for lawn mowing and landscaping. I'd like an all terrain tire since I have to take the trailer to the dump often and it usually muddy. I never go "off roading" for fun.

Thank you for the additional information.

An excellent model to look into is the Falken Wild Peak A/T. This model is tough in all conditions and lasts if taken care of. The 275/65-18 also has white letters and comes with a 50K mile tread life warranty. Here's the link with more details.
