need tire help!!

I have a set of 18x10 wheels. I want to buy some tires to mount on them that are equivalent to a 33x12.50x18. What is the best all around tire to go with that I can get the most possible mileage out of and has a good ride? I'm aiming more towards an all terrain, but I am open to all suggestions. I don't have a lot of experience with these 3/4 ton trucks and I know you guys do so any input would be great. They are going on a 4x4 f250. Thanks!!

I would recommend looking into the 325/60R18 size. There are a few all terrain's in this size that may be good for you. Generally speaking, you'll get more miles out of an all terrain and they will handle better on the street as well.

Just put a set of 325/60-18 Nitto Terra Grapplers on a set of 18X9's. They look great and were only $221.00 a piece mounted and balanced. I have been a loyal BFG guy, but not at $337.00 a tire!!!
