I concur. BFG's for me have lasted the longest out of all tires I've had previously on several vehicles. Goodyear A/S and A/T tires were the worst I've ever owned. They wore OK, but traction in anything but dry weather sucked. From your choice list I'd choose the Revo 2's. I had them on a previous plow truck I owned and the tires performed great.

I just put a set of Cooper Discoverer ST's on my truck. Only 5,000 miles so far, but I love them.

I've got Goodyear ATs on my 1500 and have gotten great traction with them, and I play in the mud quite a bit. Got 35,000 miles on them too and they're wearing down but I should be able to get another 5,000 out of them.

I like the BF Goodrich ATs quite a bit, however I've got Bridgestone Dueler ATs on my 2500 and they're wearing down FAST! 10,000 miles on them now, prolly only get another 7000 or 8000. Those are load E too

Got Goodyear Wrangler Pro Grade load range E on right now with no problems at all. Tried the Cooper last time I bought tire and they were the worst ever came with a 50,000 mile warranty and barely made it to 23,000 (had to rotate every 2 to 3,000 mile because to the bad ride) and Cooper wouldn't do a thing!!!

Bridgestone all the way!!!!

I will always be a bridgestone guy since my father has worked for them for the past 26 years and gets awesome discounts. So in my opinion all the other guys are the bad guys!!!!! Now putting that aside, i've always run bridgestone tires and loved them. I'm sure some tires are comparable but the price that my dad gets bridgestone tires for me (about 50% off) can't be beat! Going on 25k on my dueler revos and still have about that many left if i'm guessing correctly...
