    I've nearly burned through the stock tires on my 2011 5-lugger (32k mi) and need a few suggestions for a good all-weather tire for the snow season. I do occasional off roading for my job making visits to cell towers so sometimes I have to go down snow/gravel mix roads and I've been told an all-weather tire is pretty much a necessity.

    Any suggestions? I have stock rims by the way.

    Check out the Cooper M+S, ATR or AT3. All will perform well in the snow and wet conditions. The ATR was discontinued earlier this year and replaced with the AT3 but my old man was able to find new ATR's last week. When I used to have 2wd in the snow, I'd put an aggressive 'digger' on the back and just a good all-season or better on the front.

    Michelin LTX AT2's worked great for me in all weather conditions; didn't get to test them in the snow, but they never let me down.

    BFG TA KO's are popular too, as well as goodyear duratracs

    I'm using General Grabber A/T 2's and I love them. Although I'll probably try out some Goodyear Duratracs next. The Grabbers are very economical, they handled great in the snow last winter (Norther Virginia). Hope this helps!
