    Dad is a smart man. When the roads are crap I'll lock up the brakes on the quiet neighborhood road just to see how bad things are. Another thing is if you are triggering the antilock brakes a lot you're doing something wrong. IMO antilock brakes are like seat belts. Great to have because shit happens, but you hope to never really need them.

    I like them. They run quite, ride nice and do fine in the snow. Some people like an aggressive looking tire and LTX is anything but that.

    I had a set of BFG AT2 KO before and they were just OK. However, they were really marginal in the snow. I got rid of them last fall because I couldn't stand another winter with them. Having driven my whole life in snow, working at a ski instructor, winter conditions are just a part of life. My solution to bad roads is 4wd, so to replace tires that are not worn out goes against my grain and says nothing good about the tire. But, if you're doing a lot of Moab style off-roading the KO's are great.

    Ltx at2 is a good tire for road and snow but mine turned to absolute slicks in any kind of mud. Like skating around a barely muddy road.
