Default Opinion on best 31 10.5 15 tires

I'm thinking I want something good on road with not a lot of road noise but good for offroading as well. Hearing good things about general grabbers, firestone destinations, and a few others. Anyone have any suggestions?

I would suggest BF Goodrich All terrains. They can achieve around 50,000 miles if rotated regularly and maintained. They are quiet on road, good traction on highway and decent traction everywhere else but in deep mud.

What's your opinion between the firestone destination a/t and bfgoodrich med terrain? They both have good reviews. The firestones just dont look very aggressive, so I was looking to see if anyone had any experience with them. They are cheaper then the bfs, by $150 for 4, but the bfs appear to have a lot more meat and aggressive tread

I'm very happy with my BFG ATs. They were great in the snow and good in the woods. I'm selling mine to go bigger if you decide on BFG

I am interested in both tires. Just can't decide with the $150 price difference but the tread difference looks pretty different. Idk which. They both have good ratings for on and off road, the firestone treads just look so puny compared to the bfs

I don't have much experience with the firestones but I have not heard a bad review of the BFGs to this day

I was also thinking about getting the Firestone Destination A/T's until I saw the Cooper Discoverer ATR's at Pep Boys. (They are doing the buy 3 get one free deal). The tread on the Cooper's looks a lot like the Firestone A/T's. If you brake it down you end up paying $109.50 Ea. for the 31" Cooper's, and the best price I have got on the 31" Firestones is $126.00 ea. so I'm torn between those two tires.

Coopers my good friend has owned a tire shop for over 25 years and he swears by Coopers has them on all of his rigs so do all his employies.
Same word from friend who works in separate tire shop in different town.
