Question Tires?

So, there I was...checking the air in my tires when I found some cracking and splitting in my right rear. Guess it's time to get a set of new tires...

Went to just about every tire shop in town and got quotes on several tires, but two brands/models seemed to popular at each place. The BF Goodrich TA/KO and the Goodyear Silent Armor are the two tires that appear to popular. Both are LT285/75R16's with Load Range E, but now I'm trying to decide which tire to get. It's only about $10-20 difference per tire.

Is anyone out here familiar with either tire enough to help me make an educated decision? I've had plenty of Goodyears on vehicles, but have never bought BFG's. I'll take any advice anyone has to offer, as long as it comes before 0700EST, just cuz that's when I'm going to get the tires mounted...

My last 10 sets of tire on my last three trucks have all been 35" bfg all terrains. They handle and grip awesome with little or no highway humming. I usually get 40 to 45 g out of them.

I have BFGs, with 40k on the truck they honestly look like most life is still on them. I like them for highway etc, not that agressive though.

I used to have BFG's on my old chevy. I loved them. When I bought my Ford it had the silent armors on it. I dont think the goodyear's are all they are cracked up to be. My next set I am definately going back to the BFG a/t's

Hear lots of good things about the BFG ATs. I would go with those if I were you.

Go with Toyo Open Country A/T's or Nitto terra grapplers. I'm runnning both on a few trucks and love them. Smooth super quite ride. BFG's are things of the past like the 90's era.
