Default Best longest lasting highway tire / a/t

Hey guys I am about to start a job on an oil rig and as some of you know you have to travel a good deal of highway miles to get there and when you get there there is gravel rock dirt and mud leading up to the rig. I was hoping someone could help me out to which tire would be the absolute bestto fit my needs. The terra grappler I'm not sure I want cause I was reading earlier on here on how they suck at lasting. I was wondering if anyone has those Michelin ltx a/t 2??? I kinda like them. Thanks guys!

michelins wear like steel. to me the wet traction is lacking. i would personally like something a little grippier. but for your application i think they would be perfect. bought my 06 used with 33000miles. the rears were worn (probably due to p.o. doing some showing off). the fronts are original and i now have just over 80000miles and have never rotated since ive had them. still drive great.

Goodyear Wrangle Silent Armor's are rated pretty good. I'm on my 3rd set of them, and I am very impressed with them. I do mostly hiway, but gravel roads and prairie trails are also traveled frequently.

Toyo makes some of the best rubber on the road. Toyo A/T, Toyo H/T, and Toyo M-55 (these are pricey but designed for a lot of gravel driving).

Heard a couple of guys getting 100 k out of these:

LTX's wear really good on pavement but they are crap on snow and ice (which shouldnt be an issue for you anyway).

Despite being a mud tire I have had absolutely great wear from my Cooper ST's and I dont rotate them either. The rubber compound is pretty hard. Again, they suck on ice.

I'll second the Dick Cepek FC-II's. I love them. I've got around 20k on them with all sorts of different surfaces.

I like like yokohama geolanders A/T-s, they have been great for me amazing in snow rain highway and mud, the tread seems to last quite awhile so far and they arent that expensive either.

Michelin LTX A/T 2 and Michelin LTX M/S 2, also the the Toyo HT Tuff duty look like nice tires and when I looked were priced at good $50.00 per tire less then the Michelin A/T 2 and IIRC $72.00 less then the M/S 2.
