Firestone vs BFG's

Looking for some opinions here. I just bought my rig and it has Firestone Destination AT's on it. 2 of them are brand new and 2 are about 75% worn and worn unevenly from a bad alignment that wasn't taken care of. They are also 285/75/R16's. The 2 new ones are load E's and the 2 old ones are load D's.

My old Z71 has some 12 month old BFG AT's on it are 265/75/R16(E)'s. Which is the same factory size of what is in the door jam of the F-250.

What would you guys do? Put the BFG's on the Ford or buy 2 new Firestones to match the 2 new ones already on the truck?

Replace the Firestones with the same tires that are already on it. It is never good to mix tires. If your Firestones are new on the back, then simply align the front and buy Firestones.
