DO NOT get BFG all terrains. They are garbage. I had a set of firestone destination a/t tires that I really liked, but I only had about 300 miles on them before I sold the truck.

Hankook RF10 (Dynapro ATM). Got a fleet of them for construction. Only have one with the new RF11, which, unlike the RF10, has the mountain/ snow flake designation.

Ironically, a year round favorite here is the Hankook RW11 winter tire. We run those year round, and we tow with all of them. They all last 32k to 38k miles (only got 1k miles on a set of RF11 tires, though.

All my Cooper AT3 tires end up rock drilled
Mastercraft MSR work well but I can never get the centers to wear even, and usually only give 25k miles on my diesel 3500s.

All the tires listed do very well in construction site mud, but, surprisingly, the RW11, with wheel spin, outgoes the RF10s. But, RW11 are only available in LT265/75R16.

Discount Tire has a good selection of 285/75R16 tires that should fit your needs. Which one would be best depends on your priorities as all tires are a product of compromise.

We would be happy to help you choose if you like, just send us a PM.

Here is a link to all the 265/75R-16 tires at Discount Tire Direct plus their Memorial Day Sale is good until 5-27-19.

The outgoing ATM RF-10’s do have the 3-peak rating.

Pro Comp is made by Cooper and I've run 2 sets of 37" Pro Comp A/T on my previous 07' Silverado gasser.
Never had any issues with them..

You're not one of those guys that runs 285s on 6.5" wide wheels, are you?
