Uniroyal / General Tires? -replacements

I'm shopping for some replacement 265/75/16s - E Load - hopefully quiet tires, and found this:

General Grabber AT2 - Discounttires.com with the lowest prices on tires and wheels, carrying all name brands, and having a huge inventory. In most cases, shipping is one to two days guaranteed.

EDIT: or maybe this:
Uniroyal | Laredo HD/T | Tire Sizes & Specs

anyone ever use either of them?

I'm looking for a bit of deep sand traction, I'm partial to Michelins but their AT 2 doesn't look so hot for sandy stuff.

What else out there is a good tire for the money?
I don't mind paying for quality, especially for a long lasting tire.

Thanks!

the good General they have is the one your looking at and the semi tires..
if i had to pick between those 2 it would be the Grabber hands down.

They are nice tires, ride good, have good traction in the wet and snow, but they dont last for crap. My mom has them on her cummins with about 10,000 miles on them they are less than half tread.

A buddy had them on his truck and they were toast after 20,000 miles

Both of these trucks tow more than they drive empty.
