Right now I am going to say the BFG Commercial T/A Traction.
http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/tire-...traction-tires
I have had real good luck with them, no flats in a four years and still better then half tread.
They ride quiet and being ten ply have a good load rating. They also have good traction in foul weather and off road.

1998 1 ton dually 4x4. 12valve Cummins 5 speed manual. TST # 10 fuel plate DPI 75 hp injectors ATS 3 piece exhaust manifold BHAF intake 5" Turbo back exhaust dual 5" stacks South Bend 13.5 clutch 2001 flip out towing mirrors 16 degrees of timing and 3000GS BD Super B turbo
Dynoed at 452 horse power
And over 900 foot pounds

I also have had great luck with several BFG tires. Just keep up with rotations (harder on a dually) and in all cases, from the Long Trail, to the KO's and Commercial TAs I've gone well over the mileage limits of the tires before hitting the wear bars. One tire succumbed to a nail in the sidewall; I threw on a new Wrangler HP tire when then BFG's were at 60% tread remaining. The Wrangler wore out while the BFG's still had 2/32 useable tread.
