'02 F350 DRW 4x4 Tires????

Hey guys, I am about to order a set of tires for my '02 F350 DRW 4x4. I will be doing 80% highway / 20% gravel or offroad driving. Some of this will include towing a 40' fiver and 28' gooseneck flatbed.

I have been looking at the Nitto Dura Grappler, Goodyear Silent Armor and Goodyear Duratrac tires in a 235/85 R16.

So far I know that the dura grappler and silent armor have the best longevity for highway driving but lack traction in any kind of mud. I will rarely encounter mud but I want to be confident that I wont get stuck in an inch of mud either. I know this is like having your cake and eating it too.. haha

I would just like some reviews or suggestions from guys who have run these tires or know someone who has. This will help me make the best decision.

Thanks

Trucks:

'99 7.3L PSD, F250 SRW, BTS, 2.5 Ton Rockwell Axles

'02 7.3L PSD, F350 DRW, 6spd, IH Up-Pipes, 4" MBRP

My 2011 came with BFG Rugged Trail TA on it. I just replaced the factory tires last week. I have 55,000 miles on my truck, about 10,000 of that hauling the 5th wheel. never once during the 55K miles did I have to have them balanced either. Just kept them rotated regularly. Not bad for a all terrain tire!!

Guess what I replaced them with...that's right, the same BFG Rugged Trails!!

BFG RUGGED TRAILS

Ive had great luck with my ATZs on my truck and they come in all kinds of random sizes. I do the same kind of driving with my truck mainly highway but occasional back roads use.

Michelin LTX M/S2 Highway All-Season is what I have and they have a 70K mile tread life warranty. They also make an Michelin LTX A/T On-/Off-Road All-Terrain with a 60K tread life warranty and may be a good alternative.

I have the nitto terra grapplers, they suck in the snow, worn out way to fast towing a 10k boat for 2 seasons.
