In Need Of New Tires

Alright guys let me start by saying sorry for another tire thread I know theres a ton of them out there. I just bought a 05 f250 yesterday and its my first one. The tires aren't in the best of shape, so i've been looking and reading all sorts of threads about what tire to go with. I do a little bit of off roading, but mostly highway and city driving. What can you all suggest for a good well rounded tire?

Not to stomp on anyones @$&# but I personally hate Michelins.
worked in a tire shop and those tires had the worst sidewall as far as flexing that i have ever put on a rim.

How far would you say your offroading goes? Just some dry dirt and gravel, maybe some nuddy fields where you wont bury it but do need something with a little aggression?

Also, how many miles do you want or need to get from this $1000+ purchase?
Do you put alot of miles on your truck or will the tires dry rot before you get 40k on them?

I've heard a lot of good about Hankook Dynapro ATm's, and they've done well with me so far. Just a lot of water from rains we've had and some slick mud/dirt roads, but nothing deep.
No noise at all on the road.

I love my Nitto Grappler A/Ts. Great looking tire with a lot of functionality.

I didn't see the Michelin in the size I'm looking for. I'm looking for a 315/70/17 or a 35x12.50x17. Seems like as soon as I start to lean towards a tire I find negative reviews about it. As far as my depth of off roading it will be minimal nothing to intense. The mileage life isn't that big of a issue but I would like to get decent life out of them.
