Replacement Tires

I'm looking for some replacement tires for my 05 F250. Currently I have stock BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A P265/70R17. I'm looking to replace all four tires, however, I would like a tire that is a little more aggressive on snow. I mostly drive on pavement but occasionally drive off road during the hunting and fishing seasons.

1) Long lasting
2) Fairly aggressive in snow/off road
2) Reasonably priced (Under $200 per tire)

Please don't turn this post into a tire war, I understand that everyone has a different opinion on tires. This is the first tire replacement for the truck and I would like your advice on suggested tires since I have no experience with any tire other than stock.

My BFG A/Ts' have about 20,000 on them and are about 1/2 worn, thats with about 4000 miles of towing a few smokey burnouts and a heavy right foot, paid right around 850 for the set installed. They have been good for almost all of the muddy/snowy conditions I have been in.

I have to agree with Dave being AT BFG KO's at top of my list. Nitto and Toyo are also great wearing tires.

Just put BFG A/Ts on my 03 and going to put Good Year Silent Armor or BFG A/T on my 05 this summer. Never had the Toyo or Nitto but have heard lots of good things about them too.

I have Nitto Terra graps and they have just above the 40K mark, and they still have another 6-10K tread life on them, so pretty good tire. Neve had the BFG's but heard many good things. The terra grappler looses all off roading capability as with all tires when the tread wears down, but for me this especially seems true. At least with the BFG's they retain some of their off road use when the tread gets less than stellar (so i've heard). Good luck bud!

I have the Goodyear Silent armors. They're great in wet, snow, and mud, and they're extremely quiet. They're pushing your price point, but not by much. I have 18s on my truck, and it was about 900 bucks for 4 with road hazard and lifetime balance. Plus, they had a $40 Visa gift card with them. I'm still waiting for the stupid card 3 months later, though. LOL

Had Goodrich A/T's on my Ranger, got great traction from them, considering they weren't a full mud tire. A bit noisier than street tires, but not bad. Better than getting stuck in the middle of a field on street tires.

I'm looking at a set of AT's to replace the rugged trail's I have now, which are just about done, and not worth a darn off road. Look on the bright side - I have to buy six of them, so it's looking like $1200-1400 for a set. Ouch!

I am running mickey thompson baja mtz's. If you want a more aggressive tire these seem to be pretty solid and they look bad A$$. They are actually not that loud for a mud tire and they are wearing nice. I have 15000 on them and they are showing no wear, i rotate them every 5k though
