Looking for New tires

Hey all.
I have had my Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2's for less than 2 years and less than 30000 miles, they are at 3/32nds tread left, meaning time to buy some new tires... preferably All Terrain tires.

I bought these tires off Tire Rack, and they had "good" reviews, but id like a tire that lasts 50000+ miles.

I would like to know what you would recommend, id like to spend less than $180 per tire (im not worried about the cost of mounting and balancing)

If i get the sport rims like i plan ill be looking for 265/70(or75)/r17

if i dont and i keep the stock off road rims, ill be looking for 265/70(or 75)/r16

Both sizes in P-rate unless the LT-rated are reallllly good.

I would like to know how the tires YOU recommend perform in the snow, ice, wet and slight offroad traction (nothing more than a pretty bumpy dirt road for a while)

Thanks much!

Justin

Lately Ive been whoring out the Nitto TRAIL grapplers since i love mine so much However, i have no experience with them in the snow/ice yet and while offroad so far, Ive had my jetski towing behind me - so I havent busted on them yet offroad yet either.

Ive had them 4 months so im not sure how fast or slow they will wear yet. But what I love most about these tires for sure is that they look dead sexy and they only cost me $215ea from www.onlinetires.com vs $275-300!!!!

My truck is about 85-90% street driven and no complaints there so far.

I just bought some Nitto Terra Grapplers for my truck. My previous set lasted about 50k. They ride very good (35psi) and perform well off road. I got em from onlinetires.com and saved about $200 compared to discount tires price. But I was able to mount and balance them myself so that saved me even more $$.

Cooper Discoverer AT3. I haven't had them for too long but so far I'm very happy with them. I've got them in 265/70R17.
