Question Need Tire Help/Opinions

I'm going to have to get new tires and I'm struggling with what to get. Currently running BFG all terrains but was hoping to find a tire that's a little more aggressive looking that doesn't sacrifice too much on road performance. Since I'm sticking with my factory Lariat rims for now with the truck leveled I want something that looks more aggressive. The truck is a '00 F250 CC 4x4.

Thought about the DuraTracs for a while, I see a lot of positive comments about them but reading people mention sidewall stability has me a little nervous going that route.

I like the look of the Mickey Thompson ATZ P3 and MTZ but I read about blowout issues with MT tires.

The Nitto Trail Grappler would be another option I'm looking into.

Help and input would be greatly appreciated.

Trail Grappler is going to disappear in a hurry.
Go with Toyo M/T you will get 50K out of them.

X2 on the Toyo MTs. They run very smooth on the road for a mud tire, and should you ever actually go off road... they work great on the trail. They have a good rep for standing up under these heavy trucks.

I've got the duratrac on mine and I thought it was just me for feeling like the side walls were kind of soft. Looks like I'm going back to the tire store to see what they have to say.
The tires grip great in slop snow and hook good on the tar but when I hammer on the go pedal on the freeway it seems squirmy
