Help me spend money!!

Hey everyone,
After 31k miles my 325/70-17 nitto Terra grapplers are crap. Might get another 3k out of them and Im buying new tires next week.
I want a more aggressive tire, decent life or at least better than these nittos and something that will tow well. I can get Toyo OC AT2 or MT for $1250 installed, but their reviews are all over the place. Are the Toyos that much heavier??
I'd like to go a bit bigger, so will a 35/12.50-17 make that happen? I don't want a skinny looking tire or stay with a metric tire?
I'm open to all ideas on tires guys! Hit me!

Goodyear Duratrac. I had Toyo Open Country M/T's, 35x12.5x18 and absolutely love the Goodyears over them. I highly recommend them.

I am trying to decide the same thing for when I get new tires. I have had toyo MT's on my f150 and loved them, and I have 325/65/18 nitto terra graps on the SD now. I have 38k on them and still have enough to run thru the winter no problem, probably another 10k left on them.

No problem!!! What's your email address?
Are the duratracs aggressive enough? I don't take my truck in the mud but when I do its to rescue someone else and I HATE getting pulled out lol.
Didn't price the duratracs thru my local shop.
A lady I work with went 60k on Duratracs on her CCSB cummins

Well since the Toyos are in a nationwide backorder from what I hear, or a shop wants $1500 for just tires, km open to ideas.
Federal couragia MT?
Hankook dynapro MT?
Cooper STT?
Any experience with any of these guys?

The 325's your running now are essentially a 35x13.00. A 35x12.50x17 is going to be a bit more narrow. The next size up would be getting into the 37's.

Get the Duratracs, they are plenty aggressive. Those Federal Couragias are a pure mud tire and are super aggressive if you're gonna drive on the road. I had the Toyo M/T's and would take the Duratracs over them any day. They ride much nicer, are much quieter, and are much lighter plus they'll get double the life the M/T's do.
