Dunlop or firestone?

I've been pricing tires and I've narrowed my choices down to two tires, Dunlop Radial Mud Rovers or Firestone Destination M/T's and I haven't heard anything about either and was wondering if anyone is running them and could give me some feedback on what they think of them. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

I'm running Firestone Destination M/T's (when it's not winter) in 245/75R16. I like their on road handling for M/T tires both on dry and wet. I can feel the ribs at 10mph and less, but that's it, and sure they're a bit noisy but not annoying.

Up to now I did rotated them every 5000 miles and they wear even, surprisingly not too fast, I should get around 35 000 miles out of them.

In Pennsylvania you do pretty much the same off road we're doing here, and these tires shine in the North/East terrains we get to play in. They have lost some tiny bits of chunks on some ribs, but nothing bad, I think they old up pretty fine.

Awesome thanks, I'm really looking at them for when my current tires wear low. I'm not to worried about the noise, do you have any complaints about them?

No complaints at all, when I'll need to replace them, they will be part of my shopping list.
