I live in socal and dont really have to worry about ish like that but if I lived in an area where snow played a big role in my daily winter life, I would throw some studded snows on during the winter and have a set of summer tires for the rest of the yr.

bfg all terrains are snow rated... its not easy to get that qualification so they have to do ok...

although, duratracs, bfg commercial traction t/a, Goodyear silent armor are way better a/ts in snow and work pretty good offroad

Might be the driver but I have out proformed Tacos with the duratracs. They don't air down as well as the BFGs.

the op just asked about snow...


hard to beat the duratracs in snow...

for mud and rocks/ general offroading i plan on getting 255/85 16 cooper stt. They remind me alot of the old MTRs and those babies rocked in all situations...

Definitely not a snow tire, as many have said...unless you're wheeling in deep snow, then a 33x10.50 would be great. But it sounds like you're driving in normal snowy road conditions, which no M/T will be good for.

If your primary concern is snowy roads, Duratrac's or BFG AT's.

Grabber at2's are awesome in snow and cost less than bfg. Last long too. They load up in mud and don't clear well. That goes for most at's though.

BFG AT's for the snow. Awesome snow tread blocks,,just looking at them you can see that.

My last set of 30x9.50's went 96,000 miles.

Also, you could get MTs or KM2s and sipe them if you wanted...I have read that helps. I have not had to do it b.c I run ATs in the winter and MTs in the summer.

ATs for snow...MTs might work if you had them siped, but otherwise you're gonna be at a disadvantage.

BFG all terrains are terrible in all conditions, especially off road and in the mud. Ive got dick cepek fc 2s and i live in bc canada, and they are doing really good in the snow and ice and they are awesome in the mud and rocks.

Not entirely correct. I have never had an issue offroading with them. Tennessee Rocks, Arkansas Rocks, Louisiana Mud, Texas Mud, Alabama Mud. All of these places and no issue unless it was human error. Are they the best tire I have ever, nope but they certainly aren't the worst.

I've had many sets of BFG A/T's over the years. For general driving on roads with snow/ice and light offroading they perform very well. I've made many ski trips in the Pacific Northwest and Rockies with them and never had an issue. Most sets lasted me around 70,000 miles. As far as mud terrain's I'm sure their great while offroading in mud and deep snow but for general road conditions not the best choice-especially for ice...can be dangerous from what I've read.

I had KM2's on my '04 Tacoma and thought they did quite well off-road in deep snow. They did transmit vibrations throughout the truck a good amount on road though. Have switched to AT's and the vibration is minimal/non-existent now.

For the record I was "rescuing" the Series Rover - it was breaking trail. We almost switched to my Tacoma to break trail as it was doing so well in the deep snow/mud combo but realized there would be no one to rescue me. We turned around shortly after this point when the snow depth doubled and the day warmed enough that the trucks weren't floating anymore.

I like the KM2's - they are on the Defender now.

Yeah, don't take BFG mud terrains out in the mud, they load up and are done as far as traction.

Gateway Buckshot Mudders,,bias ply!!. just keeps rollin. Had a set of K-15's on my old 85 xtra cab, and stupidly sold them. best tire for the mud.
