"trail riding" is pretty vague.
around here, I'd say 65-70% of the trails are rock and logging trails. Not many plain smooth forest trails. I'd say any tire made with hard rubber would last the longest. Heavy tires like the itp 589's.
tires like the Maxxis bighorns probably wear out sooner with their softer rubber compound- but they might grip better on hard surfaces.

thanks for the help, they are for rentals.

I got about 4500 out of my big horns but my atv is in 4-wd all the time and the rears still had some tread on them.

the duros look pretty good.

Some of the guys I rode with down in Arizona had 6-8000 miles on Bighorns with useable tread left. Most of the riding there is rough rock.
