Never used any of those tires because im a cooper tires man, but my buddy has the mickey thompsons on his truck and they get good traction and dont make too much noise. They're about average for aggressive tires when it comes to noise.1995 Silverado,Z71, 3-inch lift,2-inch leveling kit, SkyJacker Suspension, short ram-air intake, throttle body spacer, MSD ignition coil, straight pipes

Toyo M/Ts. Rides better and last longer than the other two. The Mickeys and the Cepeks are made buy Cooper tire.

Did you check out coopers? I had cooper STT's on my Cummins and loved them. But from the ones you have go Toyo Buddy had some on his Powerstroke and put 50k on em.

dick cepeks are really good tires. great tread cleaning not too loud on the tar roads an loads of traction in mud. all around good tire in my opinion plus they look great!

It depends on what you are looking for. Do you want people to think you go off road but you only go 100miles off road for every 30k or are you an avid offroader? The Dick Cepek and Mickey's will provide great traction in the Mud, but at a cost of higher wear on road, balance issues after 3-5k miles(which doesnt matter off road), and More highway noise. I used to spend alot of time off road working for a logging company so I wanted the better traction, but I ran with Super Swamper Boggers, no traction on wet asphalt but hell on mud. The Toyo tires will probably last longer on the road due to their less aggresive design. Good Luck."If orange juice had armpits, maybe."

I'm on my 4th set of Parnelli Jones Dirt Grips....love em. They are totally balanced from the factory...last well and have nice road manners....not too loud till they get really worn and perform great off road. Check them out.
