Howdy from Iraq! Hope all is well over there!

What do you want out of the tires? Looks, off road performance or highway/towing performance? I ask because thats what will determine what I would recommend.

Nitto Terra Grapplers are a great all around tire - do well in mild to moderate mud, great in snow, great in rain, handle towing and hauling well and return well with long miles.

+1. I've gotten about 50k on my truck and about 40k on my wife's with regular rotation. She probably still has about 15k left on hers if they continue wearing like they are.
