    I've been on other threads doing research on my next tire. Everywhere I go people have different opinions based on where they are from and what terrain and conditions they experience each day making it impossible for me to decide. Being in Florida, we don't have to worry about snow which seems to be a key factor in most arguments when it comes to tire choice.

    I want to know which all-terrain tire will perform the best in the conditions we experience here in Florida (mud, sand, heavy rain, hot pavement)

    BFG Ko2, Cooper ST Maxx, and Goodyear Duratrac are among the tires I'm considering...

    Duratracs are best all terrain tires in my opinion. I just happen to be selling a set of 33s....

    Too poor to list anything interesting.
    Just an opinion from Texas, since we share similar conditions, but I've been very pleased with my Cooper ATPs.

    For best results, that's still two different tires. Offroad for mud/sand, street for wet/hot pavement.

    As you consider your compromise, what matters is how severe the mud/sand you see is and how often you drive it.

    I like my new Cooper at3's, pulled a guy out of sugar sand the other day with no problem, and he was buried down to the axle. I'm sure more aggressive tires would have done some better, but they impressed me for an AT tire.

    From talking to @Trident904 I've been looking at Dick Cepek tires. Seems he has good luck with them; decent prices and they arent that heavy.

    Definitely good prices. I also like the look of them. Thanks for the recommendation

    I liked the K02's ,they did pretty well. I have the STMaxx now and very happy. Seem to handle everything well. Quiet on the road, good on wet roads. I haven't even aired them down past 24psi yet, I hear they are even better.
