Desert Tire questions

What kind of tire should I buy for desert use? I was looking at Mickey Thompson, or Nitto, but I'm going to trust your guys judgment more than my own.

Chunking out sounds bad, plus they're expensive as balls

but in all seriousness it depends on what you want the tire to do and how much time you spend driving surface streets

Well as someone who has the BFG AT's they are a good tire but I dont think I will be getting them again and heres why: When you drive on dirt or sand the rocks get stuck really easily in the tread. I have used them once off road and slid around a little bit and the edges of the tires kind of rounded. Dont get me wrong they are great tires they do well in the rain and they arent very loud. They are really heavy and kicked my MPG in the balls. But I have 5000 miles on them and they arent really worn at all except the edges from me sliding around.
