Default New A/T Tires

Well, one of my trucks tires literally popped off the rim last week. Running a spare for now, but I am interested in getting some new tires. I could just replace the one tire, but I can't find them anywhere locally and don't see them on Tirerack.com anymore. And the tires are about 6 years old and are starting to show signs of dry rot.
Anyway, my truck came with 265/75-R16 and I am planning to up it to 285/75-R16. I measured my wheel well clearance and the extra size shouldn't be an issue. I just want a little more beef added, so to speak.
The General Grabber A/T 2 has caught my eye from a performance/price perspective. Do any of you have experience with these tires? Do any of you recommend a different tire? Or have you guys heard of anything glaringly wrong with the A/T 2?
Thanks.

BFG ATs are fantastic tires. The traction is great, they wear really well, and they are quiet. That being said, i have heard the general grabbers are not bad tires for the price.

General Grabber AT2 is excellent.

Up here in Wisconsin nearly every pickup truck I see on the road has the BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A KO tires fitted, for what it's worth. I have also heard good things about the General Grabbers, though I haven't seen them installed on more than a few trucks over the years.

As odd as it sounds to most people the first thing I look at on a vehicle is the brakes, followed by the tires. That tells me more about the true intentions of the car/truck than anything else, and I definitely have taken notice of the BFG's popularity around here.

The Duratrac's are also a good option if you want a set of all-around tires that can perform well in the snow.
