Advice on all terrain tires?

Ok guys see if you can help me out. In the market for a new set of tires I have the BFG M/T on my truck now and I don't want another mud terrain tire the ride sucks but I love the look. So I want to go with a all terrain tire this time that is quiet on the rode and still has the tough look. These are a few I've looked at the pro comp xtreme A/T and the good year duratrac. I like the look of these 2 tires but I don't know how they ride as they wear so any help would be great. Any ideas I'm not stuck on just these 2 but just something that looks like that.

The Duratrac is more like a Mud/All terrain tire. People aren't getting fantastic life out of them because they are a softer compound being that they're Mountain/Snowflake rated. But they are a very good tire. Are you just after a tire for mostly street with occasional off roading, or do you want an aggressive AT? For the former, I'd suggest Michelin ATX2 or M/S. Lots of siping, excellent wear and they're quiet. Otherwise I'd go Cooper ST. Cooper is a fantastic manufacturer and their tires are some of the best out there. They make the Mickey Thompson MTZs I'm currently running and I couldn't be happier with them.

Sounds like you'd then want something with good on road characteristics first and foremost.

Have a peek at the Michelin's. They're a little pricy, but you get what you pay for. I ran the M/S before, and they had phenomenal wet/dry traction.

Look into the Nitto Terra Grappler, they are more aggressive than stock and i got 60,000 miles out of mine. A little expensive but an amazing product
