Suggestions on tires?

I live in South Fla and don't do any mudding/trail driving. I do tow an 18' and a 25' boat now and then. I do mostly street/highway driving other than the boat ramp stuff or hauling my ATV out to the trails. I love the aggressive look of the toyos or nittos, and I can get either one for about $360. I have the stock Harley 20" rims on my 2008 HD F250.

Which tires do you guys suggest and why? I've been reading a few posts about Nittos not lasting too long. Is that right? Are Toyo's a better choice?

Forgot to mention, truck currently has the stock wranglers on it with 57k miles (275/65/20). I wanted to upgrade to 35's and I have a 2.5" bilstein level kit.

I would recommend the Toyo MTs, use them on my pick up. They are wonderful I pull 5 ton chippers with them and when the truck is empty they ride really nice in my opinion

I'm running Nitto Terra Grapplers 285/75/16 on my 2005 ex and got about 45,000 on them. They still have a good amount of tread left on them. If I stay off they skinny peddle they should last to 55,000 - 60,000. I tow a small pop up and they handle great. Great in wet and dry conditions. They will pick up some noise when the get about 40,000 on them but not bad. Looking at going to 295/75/16 for a better look.

I appreciate the feedback guys. I will keep searching for more information. I have heard the Nitto's get loud as they wear. Have any of you tried the Dura-Tracs?

Ive had toyo at's and nitto Terra's and both wore down in under 20k. Hated them both. I did do a few smokey burnouts but still. I wanna look into buying the new grabbers look sweet but I don't know anyone who has them.

I put on a set of the Nitto Crosstek HD tires. Nice tire. Quiet. Good wet weather control, but still aggressive looking.

Looked at the cross-tek's and it doesn't look like they offer them in 35's. I did discover the new Toyo AT2's and I'm interested in finding out more info and prices on them. I like the look of the dura-tracs but not the white sidewall letters on the sides.

Keep the info coming!
