Long life MT tires

Are there any Mud Terrains that can withstand a lot of highway miles? If so post here please in the market for some 33x12.5-15's Mud terrain or aggressive all terrains. My KM1's are wearing fast.

What load range are your current tires? I had good luck with the Cooper Discoverer STT's and know a few people that have as well. Good tire all around too.

I've had my KM2's for four years in March. Def. have lasted a long time. You pay for them but they are good tires.

no it just wouldn't make sense for him to get them if he still plans to go offroading where he does. Don't get me wrong, Duratracs are good tires (uncle has them on his sierra) but im just going against him getting an all terrain lol

How much are you looking to get out of a set of tires? And if your driving 80000 km a year, your going to be hard pressed to fire a tire that lasts substantially longer than that.
