Tire oppinions

I am currently looking at the Firestone destination AT and the General Grabber AT2. Just want some oppinions on either one. I have read reviews but most of them are saying how awesome the tires are. I want to hear if anyone has had any issues with either one of these tires. Also any other tires that would be a good fit. Looking for an all terrain but dont want to spend 200 a tire. The grabbers are a little more than I would like to spend but I think I can swing it.

I put 25k miles on a set of 265/70/R16 Grabber AT2s and I loved them. Still had at least half tread left at that mileage too. They are slightly more aggressive than the Firestone's, and I prefer how they look. My .02 but I'd take the Grabbers all day.

I have always liked the look of the BFGoodrich AT Tires. Mine lasted 50k even though they don't have mile ratings (At least when I bought mine)

I have 16" factory wheels and want to run the same 265/70-16. I have a xlt 1998 ext cab not lifted. Will the tires rub?
Could I go bigger without rubbing?

Thanks guys

Mine didn't rub stock, but I did crank the torsion bars just slightly to level the truck out. I don't think you can go much bigger without at least some rubbing.
