looking for good A/T tires

folks.. I know most of you out there use super agressvie treads tires of most off roading. I am looking for to replace the damn dunflops. its about becoming drag slick tires soon at 25000 miles already.
What I have in mind Coopers A/T3 is my frist pick (6ply). Firestone distination A/T. I cant find any others that close match to these. I looked at silent amour.. not wild on them due I got a company truck that have prograde amour.. boy talking about nosiy and rides a bit stiff.
I go offroad during the fall for hunting. do some light towing. So I would like to hear what your thoughts on this.

I had the destinations on my old truck. Not the best offroad tire but it has real good on road habits for a AT.

Nitto terra grappler A/t are good. I had them along time ago, they wore good and were not noisy IMO

X2. I had them for 55k miles, Destination A/T's. Very good tire, I thought, especially for the money.

Goodyear Duratracs if you want something a little more aggressive than others mentioned. A little road whine but good ride and so far no issues on wet roads. Looks like I will get about 60k out of mine.

I have these in 265/70 p rated and they are good in snow, mud, sand. Great all around tire. They seem to be getting a little noisey as they wear but nothing bad. Great choice!

I pull my boat, which is not all that heavy but other than that no. If your going to do alot of heavy towing or load the bed down alot then the c rated tire will probaly be a good idea. I also dont do alot of specific off roading, my truck is used for fishing, hunting, camping ect. Just an idea, but the new yokahama geolander is a good looking tire too.

I have the Bridgestone Revo2s'. I do mostly highway and the only ''offroad'' i do is on construction sites. They are pretty good in the snow too. Very happy with them so far.
