Looking for a new tire

So I need new tires on my 06 DRW. I have narrowed my search to two tires. One is the BFG A/T K/O. Everyone knows the tire I am talking about. The other is the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo. All the reviews are pointing at the Revo. I am wondering if any of you have used either of these tires and what do you think about them. I am looking for excellent wet/snow/ice traction, quiet, and high mileage tire. I know I'm shooting for the sky but I do want the best. So give me your opinion please and mileage if you have used the tire.

REVO X 1583457875443. Had them on my F-150 and LOVED them. My F-250 has the BFG KO's. REVO's will be replacing them. The REVO's offered me excellent traction in ALL situations. My A/T KO's leave me reaching for the 4x4 switch in wet grass. While I didn't own the F-150 long enough to find out how long they wear, I believe that the BFGs will last slightly longer, cause I just can't kill mine.

EDIT: I just went to Bridgestone's website. They're in the middle of switching from the REVO to the REVO 2. The REVO 2 offers no D or E weight ratings yet. The REVO does, but only in limited sizes... Not like it used to be. For some reason, if the right size isn't available when the time comes for me to buy, I'll be going with Nitto Terra Grapplers instread.

So are you saying that what is on the market now won't be there soon and that if I want the E rated tires I should get them quickly?

If you want the original REVO then yes. If you can wait for the REVO2 to come out in an E, then wait. That is just what I'm getting from looking at their website... They used to make a REVO in a LT285/75/16E, and it's no longer listed.

Myself and many others in my area have had good luck with these.

They wear good, are quiet, and offer good wet/snow/ice traction, and best yet they are made in USA and are not overly expensive. My 315's were only 150 a piece. Not sure if they are available locally in CA though, but they are very popular up here. Harry

Stay away from the BFG AT KO's

I was not impressed at all. They don't clear for crap and get slick quick. Also too much money compared to other good tires out there imho.

I have had two sets of BFG A/T's on the highway they are OK, but I was on the farm today and have decided that I will not have another set of BFG A/T's. Wet grass. mud, anything offroad and these tires are not worth crap. I am in fields and in the mud at least 3 to 5 times a week and I will be going with Interco Swampers.

I would say stay away from BFG's because we have had numerous sets in the shops that either are out of round or just about impossible to balance. I know because of that I will not own a set of BFG's. I personally like my toyo MT's but the are a bit aggressive for most. I am actually going to put toyo open country AT's on my wifes stock ex here soon.

I like the look of Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs. I think they are a good balance between off-road and on-road.

I think I will be getting some Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armours though.

Man I can't stand these frickin' crappy Continentals that Ford put on my F-350. They are "off-road" tires all right. If you accidentally hit the shoulder, they might have enough grip to get you back on pavement.
