Long Lasting Agressive Tire?

Hey guys I have a 08 6.4 with a mini maxx tuner and I run the 250 tune. I do not beat on it every day but my tires are slightly abused. I do a fair amount of towing around 10k lbs as well. I am wanting a MT that will LAST. I do not want a REALLY loud tire either.

Everything I read about Toyo MTs is pretty good.

What about Nitto Trail Grapplers? I have read good and bad about them. To me they look the best, but I want something that will last.

I have duratracs right now, and I like them other than the fact that after abotu 30k they are pretty much shot. By the middle of fall I will need a new set of tires.... They lasted me a year. Tires for 20" wheels are not cheap

My trail grapplers lasted around 15000 miles with minimal abuse and towing. No bueno. I'll be buying toyos very soon.

a lot of guys around me swear by the hankook dynapro mt's, a nice looking tire, they are on the 350 I just bought so I'll see how they do. guys running lots of gravel and pulling decent amount of trailer, claim 30-35k miles per set.

325/65/20 Goodyear Duratracs on stock 20" wheels...Currently at 40k miles on them and I'll get at least 50k but I'd be surprised if not more.

Tires have great traction, great tread, very quiet...

The tires I have now are Procomp Xtreme A/T's I have about 25k on them and they look perfect. I had a buddy with a dodge 2500 get about 52k out of his last set of these tires. That is why I purchased them. Also hear really good reviews about the BFGoodrich KM2 MT's. see procomps in sig pic, that pic was taken with around 15k on them.

I've been going back and forth about this in my head for quit some time. I just can't make up my mind between Toyo MTs and Nitto Trail Grapplers. They are both good looking tires,similar prices,and heard good about both.
I've got Nitto Terra Grapplers on my truck and they are not aggresive at all.

I'm running 305/70R15 Fierce Attitude m/t's I've put 12k on them so far and they hardly show any wear still at least 70-75% tread. Its my first time running these and I love them so far they are quiet, durable, and grab pretty well in the mud

I'm not 100% sure if you can get them for 20 inch wheels but if they do it's a great set of rubber

The Nitto Trails or Toyo MTs are both great choices. Another good choice are the Cooper Discoverer Radial STT TEK3. They are reasonably priced and just look plain out mean! Check em out...

Ratings, reviews and specifications for Cooper Discoverer Radial STT TEK3 tires

Discount Tire is a vender on here so I believe they can give you a discount as well, can't beat that
