Tires in the Great Lake area

I'm looking to buy some new tires in he next few weeks and not sure what tire would be best for me. I'm looking at the nitto trail grappler I love the look of this tire and it gets really good reviews and I'm also looking at the Goodyear duratrac mainly cuz of how good it does on the snow and ice as Indiana gets both from time to time. I don't do a whole lot of trail riding mostly my DD but I do get to the mud and sand a few times a year. So if anyone out there can and give me your thoughts (handling on the road, road noise, wear ect...) on these 2 tires that would be great.

Had the Duras for about 50k miles and liked them a lot for the dd and weekend trails.
Wanted bigger and went with 35" nitto Mudgrapplers (which are noisy)
Can't help with the Terra's as I haven't had them. But nitto makes a great tire and the Duras are a good dd tire that will get you through some decent trails
