Advice: BFG AT , GY Wrangler or Terra grapler

I just purchased a set of 07 20" wheels and would like some advice on these tires. I mostly drive on the highway, occasional dirt road and we rarely get snow. Which tire would get the most wear, quietest and best ride. Your personal opinions would be great. Thanks

I have my second set of BFG AT's on my Jeep, first set last me about 60k+. On my truck I'm running Toyo AT's, looks like it will be about 50k+.

Both handle great on and offroad from what I have seen. Very quiet and track really well in the street.

Nitto's are pretty similar to the Toyo's.

No question, the BFG's will yield high mileage. it's just that the Toyo's are so much more Comfy esp. when on the road! just my opinion.

I have bfg's on here now, but in 17". When i purchased the truck the tires looked worn out but I've put 12k on them with probably at least 5k left. BFG's are just so expensive compared to other tires. Ive read that the nittos balance really good and ride well.... I think they ride well because they are a softer compound tire which will decrease mileage, so I guess it boils down to what's more important, mileage or ride? Any info on who has the cheapest tires? Does Discount Tire give us a break since they are a sponsor?

From someone that sells them, nittos are not that good of a lasting tire.

I have been happy with my hankook dyna pro ATMs I have 60k on them with another 10-15 k yet to go. I will get another set once these are done. I run these on my 04 drw and I tow a lot. Nice even wear with no road noise. Picked up my set of 6 installed for under 1k.
