Default Tow Rig tire suggestions

Need tire suggestions. Looking for something in the 33" range - 265/70/17, 175/70/17, 285/70/17, etc. In a load range E.

I had BFG AT's on my s10 back in the day and liked them - no noticeable road noise, good traction, etc. But I don't know how they'll last on a heavy truck.

I don't want something less agressive than an A/T - I would like A/T's, but if there is something that isn't labled as an A/T but still has a fairly agressive tread pattern I'd be good with that. And I definitely don't want M/T's.

Also, the longer they will last is top of the list, I want to get as many miles out of them as possible. - I would trade aggressiveness for treadwear.

Input?

I run the Goodyear Duratracs on my truck. Been the best tire I have had on it. More aggressive than a BFG AT, but not enough to be loud. I had the BFG ATs on my truck at one point and wore through them quick. Will never put another set on my truck. Will definitely put another set of Duratracs on it.
