Anybody Running Nitto Exo Grappler Tires?

Anybody have experience with the Nitto Exo-grapplers? I'm looking to swap away from my current Nitto Terra Grapplers - I've lost two sidewalls on my last two trips and it feels like time for a change. I'm running 285 70 17s on a 10,000 lb E350 and open to the idea of a heavier tire for a bit more protection. I'm reading good reviews of the Cooper ST-Maxx and my local shop pointed me to Toyo Open Country AT2's but now I'm circling back to Nitto Exo-grapplers. I certainly do my share of highway miles but the whole point is to be off road! Opinions welcome!

Don't have personal experience with any of those tires, I've run BFG A/T, Toyo M/T and am really liking the Goodyear Duratrac now on the rig. Many here have reported good things about the Toyo Open Country, they seem to wear a bit better than the Nittos which seem to have a softer compound. For a bit more aggressive tread with good road manners, take a look at the Duratracs, people also seem to be liking the new BFG A/T's.

I have about 11,000 miles on a set of the S/T Maxx's. They're wearing really well and I like them a lot.
