Tire help?

Hey guys, its getting time to change tires and I need opinions on tires. Now I'm running 2 continentals and 2 Good Years. The I hate the goodyears. I've had nothing but problems with them not wearing evenly when they were up front or back. What I'm looking for is a tire with good life, great with towing(heavy), and at least decent in snow(I live in CT right now and cover from VA to Maine). I made a bad choice when I bought the good years this time I'd like some help. I don't know how many miles are on the Continentals but the Goodyears have about 25,000 miles on them and look the same as the continentals. Theres at least 10,000 miles between the two sets but not sure exactly.

Thanks all!

I have always run really aggressive tires on my trucks
I tried a set of nitto terras for the first time on this truck and I gotta say I like them, they hook up on the street and strip great and they arent the regular weenie looking a/t tire and they are super smooth on the road but...
i dont think I would recommend them for heavy winter driving without trying it myself first and my winters are extremely mild. I can recommend **** Cepek Mud Country's, I love those tires and have had 4 sts of them. You can get 40k ile if you dont run spartan tunes and they get traction on just about any condition without being a loud tire on the road (although they do get louder as the wear out) I hardley ever got a flat with those tires also. The only reason I didnt get them on this truck was I wanted a tire for the strip that didnt look like crap to me.

Anyone had any experience with Copper discoverer STT tires? I am being told they are little quieter then most.

They just run good. About 52lbs and tire was a 40-15.50-20. Now I'm running kuhmo and they seem to be alright.
