Default First Post, and I need some advice

I have an 06 1500 4x4 big horn and I just ordered some leveling 5100's. I am going to get some new wheels and tires soon as I am not a fan of the 20's. I am going to get procomp 1069s in 17x9 and I am having a hard time deciding on tires.
I need something that wears well (50k+)
Something that is good in snow and ice and decent in mud

I am between these

Cepek FC2, 33x12.5 I heard these were good all around, but they have the smallest overall diameter and I wanted something close to a true 33

goodyear duratrac 285/70, really good reviews for snow and ice

BFG at 285/70, I have had these before and I was not impressed in ice and mud

Nitto terra grappler 295/70 I have not heard much about these except a few people complaining about wear

I like the aggressive look of the cepek and goodyear the most

Any suggestions?

I also hear recommendations of Coopers. Or Toyo A/T's. I am trying to get you some ideas.

I have the Mickey Thompson ATZ tires on my truck and I really like them. They have a pretty cool tread pattern, pretty large, and cool side bitters. They are supposed to last for a long time, what I have seen so far is good. I have no real complaints with these tires. I suggested these since you wanted something for highway driving. It does have the side bitters like on M/T tires so it should be good haha. I never go off roading

I just ordered a set of new wheels and tires today. Should be in next week. I went with an 18x9 Gear 717MB and got the Hankook DynaPro ATM all terrains in 275/70/18. I did tons of research and could not find much bad about the DynaPro ATM's. Good tread design and many said they wear well. Might check those out.
