From y'alls personal experience what tires have performed the best and lasted the longest on a 1-ton dually.

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.

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.
