Im gonna go with the Nittos for my next set. They were the cheapest that I could find in the size I wanted, but I found good reviews for them so thats what Im gonna go with if the price is still right.

I currently have Nitto Terra Grapplers but I'm only about 2,000 or so in to them so far so I can't comment on longevity.
The do so-so in mud (light powder when dry, real slick when wet stuff), they do great on the hilly dirt roads around my camp (more sandy composition) and they are great on the highway. Hard core mud I would look elsewhere, but from what I've seen so far I'll go back with them if they can give me reasonable tread life.
I've never had those Firestones, I know a friend's dad has some on his F150 and seems satisfied but his truck stays mainly on road these days (sold their hunting camp) and 4X4 only gets used on steep boat launches. Personally I don't care for their tread pattern.

I would buy another set for the GMC , but I want to try something different than the usual BFG AT's I've had which seem the more they wear the harder the ride and compound get. I have had over 10 sets of these on my life and I personally think they have fallen a little behind by just relying on the name and not making significant tread design and compound changes .

I just put 65,000 on some 285-70/17 LR E Toyo OC A/T tires and they just now are wearing to the wear indicators. I poisted a thread on them. I just ordered another set. Toyo owns Nitto and thats probably why the Terra Grappler A/T tread looks almost identical to the Toyo Open Country A/T. From the reports I've read on the Nitto's, I'd guess the Toyo's will wear longer by nearly twice. In comparable sizes, the Toyo and Nittos are not much difference in price.
With the Toyo A/T, you don't get those cute little lighning bolts on the sidewall, though.
