I would say BFG MT's or interco Terxus! Also I ran Thornbirds once. They look extreamly aggresive but the lugs are not in contact with the ground unless you are offroad!

What are you looking for; life, comfort, year round traction? How many miles do you put on your truck per year?

Wild Country TXR is what I run Dave.

I love them on my 6th set.

They never left me stuck in the mud on a hunting trip. They never left me stuck in the water at a boat launch. They have great traction for the weather we get.

Just rotate with every oil change and you will get close to 60,000 miles out of them. Also you will not find a tire that is as good as these at the price. I get them for 150 a tire mounted ballanced out the door.

Just find a Multi Mile tire dealer in your area.

I run about 35k a year on the truck. Life would be a good thing. Year round traction is a plus. It does get off road on occasion. Tire noise isnt a huge concern

The size you are looking at is full of 8ply tires (D). If this is the size that you were running with your BFG's I can see why you're not happy with them. Your truck needs a 10 ply (E) tire. I would recommend looking into a few other sizes. The 285/75R17's and the 305/70R17. Both of these have a selection of 10 ply tires to choose from. With the number of miles you run per year I would recommend looking into the Nitto Dura Grappler. These will last the longest out of the tires in the size range you are looking at. (check out the reviews). If you want something a little more aggressive, go with the Terra Grappler. These are excellent off-road, they are great in wet and snow conditions and they are relatively quiet and smooth riding on the highway as well.
