Help me choose....Tires

My four choices are Toyo open country MT 265/75/20
Nitto Terra grapplers 265/75/20
BFG AT KO 265/75/20
Or stock ATS Wranglers
I'm curious if anyone has expirience with these as I am looking for a more aggressive looking tire that can last long and haul weight/highway drive with.
I've had excellent results from the Origional Wrangler ATS with 68,000 miles and still going but time for new.
Also I'm kinda stuck with these choices as I can get an excellent deal on each of them from my work.
Any opinions/info appreciated.
Thanks.

For longevity I would vote bfg. I run terra grapplers and they seem like a softer compound and I have heard others say 30-40k miles tops with these while bfg can hit 50k

06 F250 4x4 ecsb, lowered 2", 6 Autometer Phantom 2 guages, Accufab Elbow, Zoodad, Airaid , Magnaflow 4"dp, 5" pipe 7" short stack, Studs, Egr delete, sneaky pipe, regulated fuel return, 6.4 banjo bolts, Moderate FICM from Innovative, High idle and foglight mods, Bilsteins, Sulastic shackles, DIY Harley headlights and traction bars. 8.76 in the 1/8th

Do you have the open country's now? Are they loud? What on the terra grapplers did you "hate"? I haul 10-15k gooseneck regularly. I need something to hold up to some abuse.
