    If u guys had to buy tires again would u go with an a/t or m/t? I heard m/t are not as good in snow as a/t is that a myth?
    Are theyre any quiter running m/t? What do u guys think We get pretty rough winters up here in northern ny and i go offroading about once or twice a month. But m/t wear quick right?

    Thanks Guys

    Too few to list.
    As far as I know, the M/T's don't have the correct thread for a lot of grip in the snow hence the name Mud Terrains...

    I've got a set of Interco Trxus M/T's on my taco and they're pretty quiet for a M/T but so. far have worked great both on an off road. I've heard good things about snow handling.. but i havent had a chance to play with them in the snow yet

    M/Ts usually don't have much in the way of sipes, and it's the siping on the A/Ts that get you the traction in rain and snow. Considering where you are and how often you're offroad, some A/Ts would probably work best.

    Of course, if you have your eye on a set of aggressive M/Ts, go for it. If nothing else it'll help get it out of your system. ;)

    I would go with AT's, given what daily conditions you have up there, and how often you go offroad. I'd look into some BFG's or Nitto TG's for a pretty agressive AT that will perform. That being said, the BFG's have a longer tread warranty. ;)

    i love the looks of the goodyear duratrac but there really isnt any reviews on them yet. does ne one on here have them yet. And i have heard nothing but good things about the nittos are they very aggressive looking in person? because i just cant see my self spending $222 a tire for a bfg a/t
