This'll get heated if the same folks show up in this post as one from a while back.  :chuckle:

I've had every aggressive A/T you can buy pretty much, and BY FAR the best performer has been the Goodyear Duratrac. The only downside is they're the noisest "A/T" I've had, but they're not M/T loud.

Yep, I love them, just not the price.

I think going to try these.

I've had great experiences with 2 sets of Toyo Open Country A/T III. Great traction. Pretty quiet, but not silent. The reviews are excellent.

Tires are waaaaay over priced right now, IF you can find what you want in stock!  I have had great luck w Falken at3w. But, I have a small cut in my sidewall, a replacement tire, after mount and balance would be $550, for ONE tire!! But, they are out of stock completely, they donít expect them for at least 90 days!

Walmart has goodyear wranglers for like $150 per tire. Most of those trucks with big $500ea knobby tires are pavement queens at a fashion show.

Best truck tire I have owned are Michelin LTX M/S2.  Ride great, good grip on wet and snow.  I do swap them out for Blizzaks which is the best option for me.  After the initial investment it's about the same cost long term and you get better tires during both seasons.

I buy the most expensive highway 10 ply that discount tire has (still not enough to break the bank).  I drove on logging roads more than most, and getting stuck is not my issue, tire punctures are.  The only time I've been stuck with these is in 1' of snow, and then I just throw on my ice cleats and keep on trucking.

My personal opinion is that unless you're going muddin', which most of us really aren't, a highway tire with more plies will last longer, drive smoother and make you overall happier.  Note, they don't look "cool".

I was literally typing this as you wrote the same thing.  Great minds.

I am running the Nitto Ridge Grapplers on my F-350.  I have liked them so far.  They seem to be a good match with the truck.
