I would say Bridgestone Dueler MT's, but I don't think they make them anymore. I've know 3 different people who got 50k+ out of theirs on full-size trucks.

I've heard that the replacement tire, the Firestone Destination MT, is also a long-wearing tire. My father runs them on his Jeep and has seen very little wear.

I have Cooper STT's on an 1986 3/4 ton Suburban. They are pretty aggressive and I'm happy with them, but it's too early to see how they hold up.

40K out of mudgrips that will really self clean in thick mud, on a full-sized truck, is about as likely to happen as 40mpg.

Get some mudgrips that perform, run them during hunting season, then switch to AT's. That is really the only way to go these days with what tires cost.

You will be extremely happy with the Cooper stt tire. I've got them on the wifes suburban and my 04 gmc. These things wear very well for a mud tire and are QUIET. They ride nice for a mud tire and the best thing, they are not as much money as the toyo mud tires they resemble. I got 75,000 out of the ones I had on my 4 runner. Trust me, you'll be happy with them.

I got over 40K out of Goodyear MTR's. Must rotate them every 5K though.

I have owned trucks for 29 years now and I have never found a real mud tire that will last for very long. It all depends on what you use them for and how you use them.

When I ran gas lines, I bought a set of Dunlop Mud Rovers and i don't think that I got 30,000 miles out of them.

I bought Bridgestone Revo A/T and they wouldn't dig or clean themselves and I don't think that I got 25,000 miles out of a set of them.

The end result is to buy two new tires every year and sell the tires that are on your truck when you buy the two new ones.
That way you can choose if you want them in the front - to get you out of trouble when you get stuck, or if you want to put them on the back - to keep from having to run around all the time in four wheel drive.

A good set of tires is the TSL Thornbirds.
