What 35's to get?

I have a 97 F250 HD 4x4 lifted 4" currently with 35" Nitto Terra Grapplers. They seem to be pretty good tires but don't have much tread left. I just got the truck a couple weeks ago. I am looking for a new set of tires and want some advise on which tires you guys are having good luck with. I would consider another set of Terra Grapplers but am keeping the options open. This truck sees at least 5 miles each day of gravel and dirt roads but also considerable highway time so something in between and AT and MT would be perfect. Any input is appreciated.

Thanks,
Todd

I got 90 K out of my BFGs on a different truck. When i sold them the guy still ran them for another year.
I personally like the Walmart liberator brand. i ran them on my work truck and I consistently get 60 K out of them. Im on my third set on the same truck.
Pretty much any tire ot there will run 40K.
I would go for a all terrain since longevity and highway seem to be your main concerns.

If the truck spends a lot of time on the highway a/t's are a no brainer unless you have the money to replace mud tires. However if you get mud tires just keep the right pressure in them and rotate rotate rotate
