Tire suggestions

Ok I know I am about to get many diff opinions but I wanted to ask and see what I could find out. I have a 2002 F250 7.3 4x4 that I just had a rear tire blow out on me and need to make my first tire purchase and I have no idea what to get as I am being told many diff things. I will be using this mostly on the road with the occasional off rd visit. Also a couple times a yr I will be pulling a 6 to 7 thousand pound trailer. So I want a tire that will be good for the rd by being pretty quiet, that will last and as I am un a budget, not to costly. I currently have 305/70/16's on but am thinking about going with 285/75/16's. A local guy said to look at the Sumitomo AT but I know very little about this brand. I see alot of people talking about the BFG's so I would like for some other thoughts.

If you are going to be on the road most and you'll be towing some I would highly recommend looking into the Nitto Dura Grappler These are excellent tires for your F250. They ride smooth on the road, are built to tow, do pretty well in off-road conditions and they last. Select a size then click on "Read the Reviews". Let us know if we can help you with your purchase. If these aren't your flavor we have plenty of additional options that may also suite your needs. The Michelin LTX AT2's may also be a great option for you.
