    I actually voted for The nittos and other.

    For the other I love my Definity Dakota M/T, They are pretty quiet, And are very aggressive in the mud.

    I have never had a set of NTGs but i have BFGs and i love them. They are great offroad, good traction and a tough tire.

    There are fans for both tires though....

    Really? My moms 94 GMC Suburban has been on the same set of BFG K/O's for almost 60,000 miles and they are definitely worn, but not bald. They are a great tire IMO.

    If your definitely set on the two tires go with the Nittos.
    If your looking for cheaper options that perform well, go for the General Grabber AT2 or Yokohama Geolander ATS.
    The generals are almost identical to the BFG's and way cheaper. The Yokohama's I had on my last truck were also cheap pricewise and handled great on road, quiet, off road were very capable in all but extreme conditions.
    Good luck, whatever you decide. Ken
