The last two sets I've run were the BFG Rugged Trails. I'm considering sticking with them or moving to the Michelin LTX M/S 2. Would love some input from the forum.
You won't be disappointed in either. I am a big fan of the General Grabber AT2 and in P-metric form, there is a 60,000 mile tread life warranty. You would be plenty happy with this tire as well.

Very good results with the Michelin LTX on multiple vehicles here. They are hard to wear out, very smooth and quiet. You do pay for it.
I have also had good results with the BFG AT. Long lasting but not as quiet as the LTX.

Zero complaints here about the LTX M/S tires. Excursions, F-*50s, Yukon, Expeditions.

If you have to do any off-roading do yourself a favor and stay far away from the Michelins. A friend of mine has a company 3/4 ton with the Michelin LTX tires and using it at our deer lease he went through 6 tires in 2 years.

FWIW, I've got the General Grabbers on my Silverado. Got about 6K miles on them, with no visible wear. Previous tires were Firestone Destinations, and I could literally watch the tread wear down. I haven't noticed any significant tread noise on the freeway, but I've usually got the windows up and the stereo on.
