I'd pick the BFGs out of those 2.

I really like my Destination A/Ts, I would highly recommend them.

What do you need them for? Snow? Gravel? Mud? Highway only but just want the look?

I went from the 215-70-15 Dunlops my Access Cab came with to 235-70-15 Uniroyal tires. Most of my driving is highway miles so they are a street tread but work surprisingly well on the sandy back roads around SW FL. I'm very happy with the upgrade in size and would strongly recommend you do the same no matter which tire you buy.

Maybe I missed something but I imagine the BFG A/Ts are going to be quite a bit more than the General Grabbers.

If those are your only two options, I would go with the BFGs.

Would you consider retreads? If so, TreadWrights may be an option also. It's around $400 before shipping for a set of BFG A/T retreads. I'm not sure if they are available in the size you need but they have received fantastic reviews and a ton of members on here run them.

Just my $.02,

Fink

I had the Generals. They work well in anything but mud. They towed well too.

Dang Pope, your truck looks just like my old one. I had Cooper ATR 31x10.5x15 on my 94 and they were great tires. Cooper dropped that tire a little while back and replaced it with the AT3.
