I got good miles from an set of Bridgestone AT REVO tires. I also don’t worry about tires miles so maybe I’m not the one to chime in lol

I'm afraid I'm in the same boat as Keith. I consider traction handling and looks over mileage.

Tires with softer rubber grip the road better, so it's your choice to go with tires that are safer or last longer.

I run BFG ATs that wear extremely well. Note that I run 10 plies on my 2500 which you don't need, but the ATs for a 1500 are rated at 65,000 miles and cost $70.00 less than mine per tire.

BFG's have softer rubber in my opinion. Great tires though, I'm getting a set for my winter tires. The k02's are a snow/ice rated tire. Goodyear Wrangler tires (not Dura Trac) are hard rubber in comparison. They don't grip the road well imo.

I haven't run Wrangles in over 20 years. My BFG's still have plenty of tread on them, but I'm going to have to replace them if I want to go fishing next spring in the big lakes due to their age. The last thing I need is one to go on me while I'm towing my boat over the mountains.
