Need some Rubber Soon....275/65/20

I have search the forums on replacements but have not got any answers in regards to the factory 275/65/20's. I have a 2007 F-250 CC SB Fx4, I'm currently running the factory Goodyear AT/S 275/65/20's but have only gotten around 25k on them and they are shot. They do not go in the snow that well and they are starting to spin with me on wet pavement. I tow maybe once or twice a month and looking at something that goes good on all surfaces, but something I will not need to replace in a year. I like the Nitto Terra Grappler and the Dura Grappler. I try not to go on a muddy road often, but am forced on some back country roads every now and then due to being a firefighter and 1st Responder in a rural mountainous area. Most of the driving I do is on the highway and dirt roads. Are there much difference in the two in regards to mileage? Any other tire choices would be greatly appreciated....Thanks

Look into the Goodyear Duratrac, these tires are absolutely awesome. Stock like quiet on the highway, unstoppable in the snow and pretty decent in the mud and off road.

All three of our trucks have them, Dads even getting them for his jeep. Convinced at least 5 people off hand to buy these tires and they couldnt be happier.

I'd steer clear of those Nittos

I've had Nitto's and liked their performance, just make sure you rotate them and you will be happy. The price compared to the Goodyear Duratec's will save you $50-60 per tire

The Nitto terra's suck in the snow and the mud. I had a set and will never run another. I am currently running 295/65 /20 Trail Grapplers and am much happier with them. I haven't had the chance to use them in any real snow but I'm sure they'll be better than the terra's were.

Next time maybe I'll try the Duratrac's as I've seen nothing but awesome reviews on them.
