Need Some help with tires

So i am looking at 3 different tires for the wifes truck, The Hankook Dynapro AT M, Kuhmo KL 61 or the Toyo Open Country AT.

My question which is best for wear and tear? Whats your guys' experience with these? How Many miles am i gonna get out of them with a 400 hp truck? We have some pretty good snows in winter and needs to be decent in snow/slush? Or what tires do you guys recommend i want a good looking tire that will last a while. The truck is lowered a inch in the front and 3 in the rear so i can only go to a 285/75r16.

Thanks guys i know there are a ton of tire threads on here but they are application specific.

How many miles you average on them? Do you pull?

Re: Need Some help with tires

out of those three, i would go with the toyos. But if i could add one more, i would add the nitto terra grapplers. I've had both the toyos and nittos and they are pretty much the exact same tire. The nittos are a bit cheaper than the toyos and last just as long. A bit over 400 hp at the wheels and i towed a lot when i had them on. Got around 30K mile on them when i sold them and he put another 30K.

bought it, then changed it.

I had the toyo's on my truck for 3yrs before i got my new wheels and tires and they still had 50% of the tread left on them.. Think i had close to 25k on them.. i didnt tow a whole lot though, just every now and then..

IMHO Kelly TSRs would be the way to go they ride like a BFG and sound about the same. Great price (made by goodyear) I got a full set of 315/75/16 E rateds brand new 2 months ago for 790
