The truck needs new shoes soon and I have been shopping around.
I use it off road, desert trails, fire roads, etc...
I have it narrowed to a couple of tires. The BFG AT KOs and the Goodyear Silent Armor.
I have had BFGs before and while they work well, they also tend to go downhill fast in the second half of their tread life.
A friend has the Goodyears and has been very happy with them but I really haven't seen many reviews on them.
Anyone have them ?

Had them on the Ex's jeep.....worked great .....don't know about wear, relationship ended with about 10k on ther tires. They did work great in the heavy rains down here, stuck like bubble gum.

I had Wrangler Silent Armors on my truck for a few months (sold it). Quiet on the road and they kicked total ass in the snow. To top it off I got them buy one get one half-off from Conrad's.

ETA: Since you have a 3/4-ton make sure you get the Pro Grade version.

I had them on an F250 and for the price I really wasn't very happy. All over the road miles and I don't drive like an idiot and had to replace them @ 33K

I work at a tire shop and we move a lot of these and everyone is happy with them, no major defects or anything. I put a set on my truck: 00 3/4 ton Chevy. They ride very smooth and they are great in rain and snow. Wear is pretty good so far have about 15k on them and they are still good. If you do a lot of off roading I would stick with the BFG's I don't think the silent armors stick as good in mud.

Go to tire rack.
They rank the tires in several categories, wear, handling, road noise, etc.
They also have customer reviews, which can be brutal.

Im on my second set of Goodyear MTR's and they are by far the best off / on road tire I have ever used.. They are the most smooth ride I have ever had with an AT tire.. Much better than the last 3 sets of BFG's I had.. You will like them! Not all that noisy eather!

I got a brand new set on the M1009 CUCV Blazer I just got from Govt. Liquidation. These things seem to perform excellent off road and on IMHO. The ride is very smooth and much more quiet than I'm used to with AT or OR tires. I can't attest to the treadwear since I just got the truck, but I'm happy with them so far.

Or just lame. Customer review of BFG AT:

These tires have a minimial air pressure of 55 P.S.I.
The truck rides like you are on bumpy railroad tracks.
This tires were taken of my truck after one week, and exchanged for the Longtrail's. Before the all terrain T/A K/O's I had five different BFGoodrich tires on several vechiles and loved everyone of them.

55 PSI minimum??? WTF is this guy smoking? No wonder his truck was riding rough...

I put some of these on my Ranger a few months ago, excellent tires. Rain,Snow traction very good. Very quiet ride. I highly recommend these.

I put a set of these on my Chevy and could not be more pleased.....very good traction on ice/snow...and excellent wear.

125.00 bucks a tire was an added bonus.

I've run Goodyears and Pirrellis...and was not at all impressed with either.
