My tire dilemma

I have some questions/opinions for you guys.

I can get (2) 285/75/16 Cooper S/T's with 90% tread for $100. Then i would have to buy 2 more but i can get a good deal on those also. But i won't lifting it because i searched and everyone seems pretty happy with tire size and stock height.

Or

(4) 245/75/16 Firestone Destination A/T's with 70% for $150

And i do wheel my rig.

The S/Ts do well offroad, but are loud on the highways. The AT's get pretty good traction for such a mild lug tire.

I said the Firestones because like Cole said, the A/T's have good grip, and are nice and quiet on the highway.

I would never buy another Firestone tire so, with that being said, I'd go with the Coopers.

I saw some S/T's for the first time yesterday mounted on a Superduty. Those tires look awesome. Go with the Coopers!!
