    Those are two totally different types of tires.

    If you want someones opinion you need to tell them what your primary uses for these tires will be if you want an accurate answer that is not total speculation.

    I have had great luck with Goodrich Rugged Trail's. I got 70K miles on the first set and just replaced them with new. They are what came stock on the truck. I only changed 3 because I kept the best one for the spare. Tire Monkey had the best deal.

    I recommend looking at Goodyear DuraTrac. They are a good mix and no louder than BFG AT. They have MT look and still very drivable. Had mine for 5 months; off road and long interstate driving with no complaints. E loads are heavier and took 1-2 mpg, but stronger sidewalks. I'll go with C load next time because I don't do extreme off road or pull heavy loads.
