Thanks for the post Randy,

What tires do you have now and how many miles have they lasted for you?

The truck currently has the oem bfg at tires. They are not the ko version I think they are ruggerd trail maybe. They are not to the wear bars yet and actually passed inspection a month ago. I've got 96k+ on the truck. Not a great tire off road but they have given me impressive milage. I'd really like something with a more agressive look and better dirt and light mud ability. I would love some mud tires but don't go off the pavement enough to justify it though. I had looked at the michelin, bfg and goodyears based on them likely lasting at least 50-60k

Have you considered the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac? This model has excellent on-road manors and performs well off-road. This model is considered a hybrid M/T~A/T. Here's the link with more details.

Even with an aggressive tread design the DuraTrac rides relatively quiet on road. Like any A/T tire though, as the tread wears down the road noise will become progressively noticeable.

With proper maintenance the DuraTrac typically lasts 45K + miles on HD truck applications.

Aren't the duratracs in the 315/70/17 size only D rated tires? And max PSI is 50?
