Tow rig tires?

The '08 DMax is due for new shoes. What tires do you run on your tow rig? What are your opinions of them? What tires will be your next set for the tow rig?

TIA.

I run BFG All-terrains on my '05 Duramax Dually and have been very happy with them. Good off-road traction, very durable, good wear, and E-rated!

I tow a 17,000 lb 5-th wheel with that truck, and the tires perform great! I'll definitely choose them again.

I have BFG T/A's on more than one of my rigs and they are very superior in the rain as well. I highly recommend them. Note though that although E rated, these have a max load of 3000 per tire in 245/70/17. Makes the 19.5 wheel conversion understandable.

My 2011 Super Duty FX4 came with Michelin LTX A/T 2 tires and I love them. Between driving on ranches, hauling and towing, and just daily driving in the city, I'm pretty hard on tires, and they've been great so far. Good enough off road for my purposes and much better on road than most of the alternatives. When the truck was still mostly new (~5k miles) I got a nail in one of the tires and took it in to Discount to get fixed. He said since they're still basically new, they'd sell me certificates on them. Best investment I ever made. Gone through 3 already due to nails in shoulders and slashes in sidewalls. Driving through tall grass you never know what you're going to hit.

A "BFG" isn't a tire. It's either a Big ****ing Gun or a general reference to the expansive tire brand BF Goodrich, which offers a wide range of products.

I have some nitto highway terrains now, liking them alot they are holding up great. 40k so far and lots of meat left.

Before I had nitto terra grapplers and they were good tires, got louder towards the end and got about 70k out of them

And before that I had bfg rugged trails.. Good tires but again got loud and wore quick towards the end.

I am happiest with the highway terrains at this point and see many fleet vehicles running them.

I just put some Falcon Rocky Mountain ATS'S on my D-Max. I like them and a couple weeks ago towing home in the snow(compact snow covered road and snowing) going down a mountain pass with the camper on the truck I didnt slip once. I like them.
