Which mud tires to get??

Well im lookin at a number of different mud tires. The biggies that I am concerned with are ride and wear. I now have bfg m/t's but they have been trouble since square one, time to get rid of em finally. So far the two big contenders are the cooper discoverer stt's and the toyo open country m/t's. If any of you guys have any other suggestions let me know. I got a good price on the tires $1200 for the coopers and $1260 for the toyos. Price includes tax mounting and all. These are 35x12.50R18's. THANKS!!!

Here are the cooper discoverer stt's:


Here are the toyo open country m/t's:

I cant really pick...those are all good choices. Also check out the Pro-Comp Extreme MT's. We do the buy 3 get one free next month on Pro-Comp. I believe the MT is included...not 100% sure. The cooper would be cheaper than the Toyo and just as good in my opinion. We have several trucks running around here with both.

the best is the Toyo but if you want to save some $$$ go with the STT's..

I don't know if we're limited to the two tires you pictured to select from, but just got rid of a GMC 1500 Z-71 running 16X10 rims with 285-75-16 Buckshot Maxxis Mudders. I love these tires and put 65K miles on the set with regular rotation before I had to buy another set of the same. Granted this was a 1/2 Ton pickup VS 3/4 Ton and the tires were no where near the size you appear to be looking for, but may be worth a look.
