Goodyear/General Truck Tires

Just wanted to see if anyone has used General AT Grabber 2 Tires
http://www.generaltire.com/tires/Grabber-ATsup2-sup

or Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor

http://www.goodyear.com/en-US/tires/...%20USA/results

If so how did you like them?
These would go on a 2500HD 4X4 used for summer landscape work(trailer towing) and snow plowing in the winter

Currently have Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs on and they are great however tread wear is not all that great. I did know that when I put them on though.

I've used the GG AT2 over a year ago. Put them on my 99 f250 super duty and used them for both plowing and mostly light towing. When i hooked my plow up to my truck it weighted close to 9k. They lasted about 20-25k miles then went bald. Overall I really liked them, noise wasn't bad, traction was awesome, very reliable and they looked pretty good too. I had the narrow 235s on mine.

I hated the tread wear so now I have some Yokohama Geolander so we shell see how this work out

I have a set of these on my Jeep and 2 of them have failed internally and now have a slight bump to the tread. One was replaced under warrenty. Overall the tread wear has been good but they are noisy compired to my geolanders and droped my MPG. I would highly recommend them for snow. The few times I had them in the light snow we get here I couldn't easily get them to break traction, not even for snowy parking lot donuts.
