Tires for a dually

I want to start this with I consider myself a Floridian and I just moved to ATL and it snowed. I was hoping my tires would last me threw the dry season but unfortunately I dont see them being safe with wet roads.

Do anyone have any recommendation for a good all around tire that will last?

I am in the middle of adding some power (s366, S06, fuel) so Id like a tire that will last longer that these POS BFG All Terrains T/A... They have worn like crap and the tire place i got them from told me they wore like that b/c its a dually and it isnt loaded heavy.

Any suggestions or a place in ATL would be great!

Michelin. They wear like iron, are quiet and give a smooth ride. Also good in rain and snow.

I'm a Cooper fan myself. Their tires are still manufactured in the USA and their website has the most literature for comparing different styles.

Have AT3's on two trucks that are daily driven. They're excellent in wet conditions, track good, and wear evenly. Though I rotate tires every oil change or 10,000 miles. Have yet to bury them in soft wet ground to see how they clean out and bite. They handle weight really well.

Run two HT3 tires on my dually being the other 4 off brand tires were free. No issues out of those two.

I'll most likely entertain the ATP tire on my next purchase if they come with OWL's. Slightly more aggressive than the AT3 and more of a square sidewalk to tread look.
