Can't decide on new tire



I need new tires and I can't make up my mind.
Last tires were Good year silent armor pro, great traction but only 30k.

I live in Iowa so good snow traction is a must.
I tow a 9k travel trailer so I need a good solid sidewall.
I would like more miles if possible


Choices so far are
Hankook Dynapro RF10
Cooper discoverer AT3
Firestone Transforce

I'm open to other recomendations as well if they would meet my needs.

Take a look at Michelin LTX A/T 2 tires, however on my work service van we use Cooper Discoverer's and they hold up very well. Our entire work fleet uses Cooper brand, seems to be the "brand of choice" for any of our 3/4-ton and larger trucks.

For superb winter traction: Treadwright Kedge Grip. I run them on my truck (265/75R16E) & Jeep (235/75R15C), they are spectacular.

Just wondering....did the tires wear out evenly, or was there some sort of issue with them, such as under/over inflation?
I see the tires on my children's cars go twice as quickly as mine do, and I can only assume that it's how they take care of them? I had to replace the tires on my Honda Civic, with 120K miles (almost 90% highway miles), because the were beginning to dry-rot (9 years)......sold the car, with the new tires to my daughter, and she's put about 30K on it, and needs new tires already????

I run BFG rugged trail T/A load range E. Tire size 265/70-17. I've had them on the truck for 35k miles and they look to be about a little more than halfway worn out. The sidewalls are starting to dry crack, probably from the hot AZ sun. I would buy these tires again in a second. They have been great in everything except for deep mud. The tread will get locked up with the mud and you'll get stuck quickly. Perfect tire for snow, rain and sand.

Go to tirerack.com find all tires that fit your vehicle, then read the reviews.

Good info, and good way to get great value.

I've got 55K on transforce ATs on a dually. They will last me another 10-15K before they have to be replaced. Then I will go with HTs instead of ATs. I now run Blizzaks in the winter. The transforce AT are only OK in the snow. The Blizzaks are awesome.
