Which MT tires?

I'm in the market for a new set of tires in size 285/75/16. Right now, I'm looking at the the Dynapro Mt's and the Bighorn's but will consider others. I need a tire that does pretty good in the field and in a little mud but still has reasonably good street manners and pretty decent treadlife.
What tires have u guys had good luck with and recommend?

Toyo MTs. Im gonna get close to 50k out of my 37s. they tow good too. Get kinda noise when they are around 30 percent... But every MT will... I will be buying a new set of Toyo MTs this spring. Love them.

Ive got 47k on my Mickey Thompson MTZ's. Still have decent amount of tread left. Probably get close 60k out of them. I rotated them every 5k miles. I will be putting the same tires back on when these are shot, or possibly some BFG KM2's.

Where do you guys do most of your driving? I have at least 10 miles of rock/dirt roads to travel to just get to the blacktop and they have been notorious for eating tires.

Mines pretty much 99.9% paved roads. The other is gravel roads when hunting

any other input on the bighorns??

i am curious also as i know of a guy who would sell six to me for $600. he did not like them on his truck because he thought they were too noisy, took them off before 1000 miles. are they that loud? how are they to tow with?? expected tread life??? good buy for $100 a piece???? i could probably get him to throw in mount and balancing too...

Thanks for the input

I was talking to a buddy's dad who has the Maxxis Bravo's and he said they're a pretty good tire that has excelent treadlife on the highway and had decent off road traction aswell. Anybody have experience with Bravo's?
