Do you have any strong recommendations for tires for my 99 Suburban 4x4? I use it mainly on road but I am starting to take it on more muddy and gnarly off road trails. The current Firestone M/S tires are lousy in mud or snow.
Thanks in advance!

BFG A/T KO's
Best all terrain tire there is.
I was considering others like Toyo, Goodyear, Nitto, etc.
I am so glad I went with the BFG.
Smooth highway ride and great snow, dirt, offroad performance.

I run the Goodyear wrangler silent armors and love them, great snow and off road traction imo the best all terrain on the market

I'm biased...(I work at a Firestone store) BFG's are nice, but they take a LOT of weight to balance on some rims. Dueler A/T's and Dueler A/T Revo's are great tires, but EXPENSIVE. I personally like the Destination A/T. They give you a little bit of that truck(y) roar but it is very light and quiet.These tires have GREAT on and off road performance.

BFG All Terrain KO (E rated for my 3/4 ton) that I just got at Costco and put on my 17" H2 wheels (not much weight at all to balance). I bought five for a full size spare.
Just back from Wyoming/Montana/Idaho driving on Interstate, county roads, trails with snow, mud, and heavy, wet clay. Never got stuck, didn't even come close.
Yes, people do go off-road in Suburbans. And I like these tires. Second time I've used them.1998 K-2500 Suburban
