Nice medium sized, quiet tire

Hi guys, just wondering if anyone can make some suggestions on a nice medium sized quiet long lasting tire.

I'm doing some research for my dads tires he's going to put on his 03 f250 and he is considering:

BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM2 LT255/85R16E1 123Q W

is there anything that the board prefers in a similar size? for price and durability as well?

Purchased online or instore is of no difference we're looking for the best deal either way.

edit: these are going on a truck with OEM wheels and upgraded suspension components @ oem lift height. we would prefer not to rub

if you can I would look into Goodyear Duratracs.. Its a great combination of aggressive tread yet still quiet on the road. I had them on my last truck and I loved them.

I run the BFG a/t's. Have for years and they do a great job for me. They are awesome in the snow. They are not as good in the mud as the m/t. But for highway they are great. No noise that I can tell. They wear very slowly and have no issues with the hot temps in the summer. They even tow well.
I even run these on my wife suburban.

My dad runs 255/85/16 toyo mudders on his bone stock 02
Toyo also offers that size in the M55, which is a super hard and long lasting tire .

In that skinny size, the motor is louder than the tires. It's when you get up to 315 wide and up the tires really start to hum

Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Dual SD fuel pumps, in tank mods, CNC Fab bowl retain kit. SDK Tunes. Isspro.
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

Another vote for Duratrac's. Great all around tires and they are smooth and quite on pavement.
