    Do a search... There is a thread around here asking the same question and I believe the AT's turned out much better in snow!

    I've run my BFG A/T KOs in deep snow many times, on and off-road. They've never let me down - highly recommended.

    Ive heard that they redesigned the AT's awhile back, to be better in ice and snow conditions...

    I had a set of the AT's on my 1st tacoma, and they sucked in anything deeper then a couple inches, bc the tread blocks would get caked in snow and not clean out, so they became like slicks...
    Not sure how the new redesigned AT's work though....
    If I were you, I would go for the Duratracs. Best snow tire/AT tire out there...

    2 years ago we about 30"+ in one storm, I had a new set BFG all terrian installed on my Jeep 2 door Cherokee. It really seemed like nothing could stop them. Not once Did i ever get stuck even steep hills 25+ inches of snow on unplowed roads. I dont know what more you could need than that.

    I plan on getting a set for this winter for my Taco

    they're just about the best tire out there for deep snow. I would imagine an aggressive MT might be slightly better but im not sure.

    I've lived in the mountains of Colorado under snow for 6 months of the year for my entire driving life. I have tried all manner of winter tires including pirelli and cooper studded tires as well as blizacks. The best of all have been the BFG A/Ts for all weather conditions plus you don't have to do the winter tire swap twice a year. In fact a set of siped BFGs out performed all of the studded tires I have run this last winter. These results have been on the vehicles I have owned prior to my Tacoma, a Dodge Dakota, Chevy Tahoe, and a Range Rover. I drove a bit in the snow this last weekend with the stock Rugged Fails and I decided after just a few minutes I would put the BFGs from my old dakota on immediately. They have never let me down, while they are expensive they are very well worth it in my opinion.

    I love the duratracs on my ford but ive got 15's on the Taco so it would have to be 31's or 33x12.50 and I dont want that much lift on my truck. I've got about 2.5 with no front flaps and the pinch weld beat in w a sledge. If they made a 32 duratrac that wasnt a 16 wheel Id buy'em. But I dont really have the money for wheels and such.

    32 11.50 are only 177 from discount/americas were I'm at. So there really not that much money. Actually less than 31 duratracs.

    I have had them on my last truck (not Tacoma) and I thought they were very good. I just recently ordered them for my Tacoma. I dont think you will be disappointed.

    I run the same tires and have for years. They are amazing in the snow and off road as well. Everyone I know in Colorado runs them on their truck. I highly recomend them.
