Tires - HELP I Don't Know what to Get

A/T Tires for a Highway Driver & Tower - NEED HELP

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Guys,

I'm going nuts trying to decide on a set of new A/T tires. I am going on a 250 mile trip this weekend and will be towing a tractor on a 18' foot trailer. My tow rig is a 2000 Ford F-150 supercab 4x4 with the 5.4 V8. I currently have some Uniroyal (plain) Street tires that came off my grandmother's Escalade to get me by for a while. They are 265/70R17 and that is about what I'd like to go back with (unless you guys think differently). They do great, but are now worn out. I'd like to upgrade to some A/T tires for the better look, not too agressive though, and for the OCCASIONAL time I would get the truck and trailer in a wet field/slippery boat launch/slick dirt road/etc. when hauling a tractor. Most of my driving 80% is highway to and from work and hauling a trailer with (2) tractors on it. I also drive in the city daily (20%) while working. I'd like to keep noise down at the most, yet get a good A/T that isn't too agressive and that complies with good wear and towing.


I'm currently looking at (the tire store recommended):

BFG All Terrain T/A KO (was told they were soft tread and would wear out easy) - $1,208 out the door

Nitto Trail Grappler (My favorite tread pattern) - $924 out the door

Goodyear Wrangler Dura Trac - don't have a price.

Hankook Dyna Pro ATm - $922 out the door


I also do not want the steering wheel to shake and it needs to have good wear.

I've done research and searched the forums. I hear good and bad things on all of these tires, but have found no one with my situation. Can you help me choose a set of tires so I can have them put on by this weekend??

Thanks!
