Time for new tires -

I'm trying to scratch up the cash to buy a new set of 235/85R-16 tires for the D-90 before MAR. Anyone had any experience with the BFG Commercial T/A Traction tires? This is what BFG replaced the Trac-Edge with and it looks like its between the A/T and the M/T in aggresiveness - Cheap too - about $96 each. I'm looking at the following:

BFG M/T's ($160 each)
BFG Commercial Traction T/A ($96 each)
Cooper Discoverer STT - new tread pattern ($140 each)

This truck is my daily driver so street wear and handling are a factor. Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated.

MT's I think would be better than the commercial traction in the long run. It seems that people that used trac edges and replaced with the commercial trac was that they were less pleased, there are reviews at www.tirerack.com that may also be of benefit
