Default Opinions/past experience please!

After a difficult process of choosing new tires I think I finally have it narrowed down to 2, and I would appreciate anyones input, good or bad on either of them. Going with a 31x10.50x15 tire to put on my Mickey Thompson Classic 2's I picked up on CL.

Do you guys think I should go with the Hankook dynapro atm r10 ($587 OTD), or the Bridgestone Dueler a/t Revo 2 (654 OTD), I have read lots of good things about both from all the reviews online and am leaning toward the Hankook, but the guy at the store says the bridgestone would be a better tire. Seems like a nice guy, but I can't tell if he is just trying to get the extra $70 out of me or he really thinks its better.

My truck is an '01 Edge 4x4 ext. cab with the 3.0. I don't go offroad much and never do any mudding or anything just lots of snow at the mountains in the winter, some logging roads here and there, and some sand at the dunes on the coast in the summer where i spend lots of time riding!

Like I said any input good or bad is appreciated. I PROMISE to post pictures after i get them on too, i never have got pictures on here yet because my photobucket account is all messed up and probably just sad cause my truck is still to stock, but summer time coming means less school, more time, and money to spend on toys!

Thanks everyone! I really love reading the posts and threads on this site.

Oh..... and I know everyone on here LOVES the BFG A/T's for a good reason and i do to, just trying to go with something different, and many recommend the Grabber at2 which i think looks awesome too, but the Americas tire store here in town wants over $850 for a set and tire rack is pretty much out of them in that size.

Awesome thanks for the input!! I'm not to worried about the extra cash if it's a better tire. Just bummed out cause they had a $70 rebate on the bridgestones up until last saturday and the guy didn't tell me it ended then when i was in last friday!! Says he can't do anything about it now cause it's through bridgestone. Costco still has the rebate going for the tires but it's still $4 cheaper at Americas tire. lol

Anyone else have any input? and thanks again guys

I'll post. I run Cooper S/Ts on mine. Like you I don't wheel really hard, I'm mainly a highway driver. Love these tires. I've run Cooper's on every vehicle I've owned after the OEMs are trashed. Never had any problems out of any tire from them, I get excellent tread life. Price wise, My 32-10.50-16s only cost me $540 OTD with overnight delivery to the dealer. Check out my albums for better pics of them mounted.
