Need tire opinion!!

i' currently have a set of 315/70r17 BFG AT's and i'm going to be upgrading to an 18" wheel very soon. So i'm going to go with a full 35x12.5r18. I however want a tire that is going to last but looks aggressive. I was really considering the new Nitto Trail grapplers however i've heard they wear quick and i'll only see about 40k miles.

So i've also been looking at the Toyo Open Country MT's. I've heard they will last a bit longer. I would love to see at least 50k miles out of tires. I also want to stay E rated.

I love the BFG AT's. I think they perform amazing on wet roads, in snow and a little off road action. So i would also like to keep the same wet road characteristics.

Give me your opinions!

i do love the BFG's however i really want a more aggressive tire. And i only got about 30k out of my 33's, and these i'll most likely get about 45k. I've heard of people getting 60k but i don't think i rotated them enough.
