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 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.

I have used the BF Goodrich tires and some other brands but the best I found for mud/snow was the Goodyear Workhorse tire. I used to stud the tires for the rear of my 2 trucks. Mileage wise I never got more than 23,000 miles out of a mud/snow tire on a truck. However, when I started studding them, this seemed to help out some and tire mileage jumped to around the 33,000 miles.

I am trying the new Nitto Trail Grapplers. A little less aggressive than the Toyo MTs. They have not been out long enough to get an estimate of the tread life, but they are doing okay in the mud so far. I spend a lot of time on the Diesel Truck Resource forum, and people do report 40k or more out of Toyo MTs.

It appears that diesels are hard on mud grips in particular, and it can be a trick to find the size you want in the proper weight range. That is one of the reasons I went with Nitto, available in the 295/70-17 size I wanted in load range E.

I've got about 25,000 on my '07 3/4 Cummins with 33" Cooper STT's in place.... still about 50% tread left. If they will make 40,000, I'll buy another set. Quiet for a mudder on the highway, stick very well in the mud, all for a decent price. Pretty hard to beat so far, and I've ran several!!

I've ran two sets of the Cooper STT's on my 4.5 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins. They have averaged between 47 and 50K miles. Just replaced the last set with the Maxxis Mudders because of the lower price. Anyone have any dealings with Maxxis Mudders?

Cooper STT'S are just as good and less money.

I have not yet seen anyone say FIRESTONE DESTINATION M/T. I am running these and this set is on its third year. They have about 45,000 on them and it looks like they will brake the 50-55,000 that other folks reported they are getting.

Just for info sake I am running them on a 1998 Chevrolet K1500 with a 6.5TD under the hood. I don't do a lot of towing so I can't help in that department. I drive about 60-65% on road and 35-40% off-road and these things are awsome.

They grab in any situation they just dig in and go. Its really hard to find a bad review on this tire.

With any high traction M/T consitant rotation is key to long life, especially on vehicles with IFS.
