    Default Tires Tires Tires....such a hard decision!

    Simple Question. I won't be going over the 285/33" tire size so whats everyone's opinion and why? BFG A/T, Nitto Trail Grappler, Toyo Open Country MT, or any other AT tire? I can't seem to find any that imprewss me and the only reason the BFG A/T is listed as choices is because I have had 2 sets that i put over 60k miles on. Little info...Most of my driving is highway/city but during deer/duck and turkey season I need a little more than just a high way tire. All feed back is welcome and appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    An AT is likely most appropriate for your needs as you're largely on pavement and very occasionally off road.

    I would agree Surreal I know you aren't one for the BFG company so what AT would you go with? Just curious.

    Have you taken a look at Cooper AT3's? I have them on my truck. Great traction. Quiet. Competitively priced.

    • Cooper Discoverer AT/3's are decent, quiet, wear well, but are relatively plain jane.
    • Cooper Discoverer S/T MAXX's are great off-road tires that sacrifice some treadwear, noise, and wet handling (but handle about as well as the AT/3's in the dry). They're spendier than the AT/3's...
    • Interco Tire's TrXus STS's are very aggresive looking ... and made in the good ole' U.S. of A, too.
    • General Tire's Grabber and Grabber AT2 are two more U.S.-based options and are often competitively priced. Some love them, some hate them.
    • Goodyear's Wrangler Duratracs get decent marks, too. Also U.S.-based.
    • Toyo Open Country A/T's get solid reviews (Toyo's a Japanese company)
    • Nitto (Toyo's other brand) Terra Grapplers also get solid reviews.

    I might add to the list the maybe the m16 from super swamper. Maybe a little more agressive than what you are looking for. I was torn when I bought my tires between the truxus m/t's I bought and those.
