Tire opinions needed

My brother is gonna replace his tires on his 04 K.R. with 18's. Last time he replaced them he put the conti's on. They are a junk tire. They wear off like a spray on tan. He wants a good load range E tire. I told him to check out BFG all terrain's, but do you guys know if they make them in a E range tire? I know i've seen em on the newer S.D. rims so i know they make em to fit, but he hauls around a big truck camper and a T300 bobcat, so any other load range won't be an option.

I will be replacing tires on my F350 which are 18" and will either get BFG AT or Good Year Silent Armor. Heard good comments on both and are both in load range E.

The goodyear tire is going to get a little better milage and hold the load better.

Unless he really wants a AT I'd go with the Toyo HT 275/70/R18 Load Range E these have been the best towing tires I've seen and have a very smooth ride and good wear has been the best for our work trucks had the BFG's, Conti's, Firestone's, and Toyo AT's and the HT's last and ride the best for us.

Thanks for the info guys. Didn't know toyo made em, but i will let him know about them. it'll mostly be an on road tire. The only time he really needs good traction is when he's plowing snow. So the toyo sounds like it might be a good fit.
