Need Agressive NON ROCK THROWING TIRES!!

Ok so im looking for some new tires guys, i drive on ALOT of rock roads so i need something that wont pick up and throw rocks, i cannot even begin to count the amount of knicks in my paint i have from my current tires, they cannot throw enough rocks. On my play truck i have 33" Dick Cepek Mud country's and as far as ive seen, they havent thrown a rock yet, maybe one every once in a while. The only downfall is i drive on the highway back and forth to school as well, and the D/C's make tons of road noise, which is not a plus, ANY input is welcome, thanks in advance fellas!

I also live on a dirt (rock) road. I have the Cooper Discover A/T tires and they dont throw any rocs for me. Dean tires are also good tires (they are the same a Cooper but less money) Just my .02

Any really aggressive tire should have large enough voids in the treads that it wont throw rocks. An AT style tire will have tread close enough together to throw stones. I know the Cooper Discover ST's that I have now hold a ton of rocks in them.

Very true, all my AT's have been major stone-slingers, and i drive a lot of gravel roads. However, I had Pro Comp Xtreme AT's and they were pretty good...a little loud but not a lot of rock rash on the fenders. Right now I have the Xtreme MT's and they're great. Very few stones thrown, aside from the occasional boulder that gets ejected. and good on the highway too!
