Need opinions and thoughts!

I have a 1997 7.3 extended cab that is completely stock and is used as a family hauler and a livestock hauler. The tires are starting to get pretty bad so im looking at getting new ones... Right now im looking at Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor, Bridgestone Dueler A/T, and BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO.... I need a tire that can last a while, looks nice, can handle lots of trailer hauling, and be able to do a little off road when hunting... Im really looking for any opionions or advice
Thanks, TJ

I'm going with BFG T/A KO I've be on this site for a week looking at what everone is saying
everone talks up the nitto and the BFG for me the BFG are $225 nitto are $235 for 275/70-18
I've ask if any body had any time on the general grabber AT 2 with no replays? so I guess I'm going with the BFG

I vote for the BFG's as well. Unbelievable tire life compared to the rest. Smooth ride. As soon as I'm done with the Mickey Thompson's I have I'm going back to BFG's.

I had BFG's on my last truck. They are great tires, worked well in all conditions and worked great in snow. Rotate them evey 6 - 10K and they will treat you good. I had the nittos prior to the BFG's and i was not impressed, they were also good tires however i got rid of the truck at 90,000 miles and there was 60,000 of the BFG's and the rest were on the stockers it came with (NEW) and the nitto's. The nittos for me, wore fast and were not as good off road as the BFG's. I also tow a 24' toy hauler which comes in at about 10K loaded and the BFG's were better towing than the nittos. (FOR ME)

i have the general grabber at2 in 265/75/16 (stock) load range E on my 2000 f250 PSD.
They' re an awesome tire. Look great and wear good. And there quiet and smooth. The tread seems to chunk a bit after a few burnouts but i dunno thats probably common for most tires. I dont know how they work in snow. But they seem to work great for road wet or dry and some offroading.
