Good driving hauling tires in stock size?

I'm looking to replace tires on a Dodge 3500 with stock 235/80/17E. Choices are limited on the 6" rims. Anybody have thoughts on these:

Pirelli Scorpion ATR
Michelin LTX M/S
Toyo Open Country A/T
Toyo Open Country H/T
Toyo M55

I guess the Michelin LTX M/S is my first choice. Anybody use the Pirelli ATRs? Just looking for solid highway tires with the best wet performance. Light snow is a maybe, but I might go to something more aggressive for a dedicated winter tire.

i work for a tire company called Raben Tire and we are a michelin/goodyear/bf goodrich/some other random crap dealer. We sell the piss out of the LTX M/S they are awesome tires... they last longer than any other tire there is i believe... my dad had a set on an explorer that went 90k... they balance better than any tires we sell... never have any that wear funny or ride bad... toyo at's are also nice.. thats what i have on my 20's but the Michelin is DEFINATELY better!!! you will get your moneys worth!

Stay away from the Pirelli's. I had some one time and they suck something awful. They wear like crap, don't balance, and had bad snow traction. Just my opinion.

Michelin LTX M/S without a doubt. They are the longest lasting tires I have ever owned.
