dura tracs or trail grappler?

Which tire is going to last longer, work better on dry conditions and in wet conditions(snow, ice, rain)? Looking at a set of either in 285/70r17 to go onto my factory rims on my stock 08 f250. Also the dura trac does not come in a load range E in that size. Is that going to be a issue?

I do tow some. 17' deep V smoker craft and a 4 place open snowmobile trailer that doubles as a utility/fire wood trailer in summer. Still ok?

I tow some decent loads during the landscaping season here in CO. and have had my dura tracs on for about a year now. They are great in the snow and off road, but I personally think they are wearing down a little quicker than I expected due to the towing. I think they are great tires, but if you tow a lot, then you might want to consider something else. I am not sure how well the grapplers will wear with a lot of towing either.

May consider going back to BFG at KOs again but their load rating is less than the duratrac even in a load range E?

I think the dura tracs can last you, just make sure to rotate them often. I slacked a little at first which didn't help.
