285/70/17 Tires 4 Dually, Decent Traction and Good Wear?

My 2008 3500 dually is in need of another set of tires.

The stockers lasted 30k miles, then I put a set of 285/70/17 GoodYear Duratrack tires on. I am pretty happy with the Duratracks, but they do bulge over the stock rims a good amount, randomly knocking my simulators off.

I tow heavily pretty much 90% of the time we use this truck.. There is usually about 8-10,000lbs on the rear axle.

The Duratracks are wearing decently, I'll probably get a little over 30k miles on them but thats about it.

I am trying to see what else might work well. I don't like getting stuck in wet grass.. so I need something with some grip. On the other hand I don't want to be throwing tons of rocks on my paint.

I was looking at the Goodyear Wrangler Silentarmors, they look nice, any input?

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
