    Hey everyone,
    I know there is a thread for tires, but I wanted to see what are the best all round tire for, snow, mud, pavement, and gravel. I live in Ontario so I enjoy driving in the snow. Right now I have Cooper STT and I have to replace them in the spring. I priced out the Cooper's and they are going to be $1600 CAD. I wanna find something as good as the Cooper STT better with a better price tag. I drive this truck every back and forth to work. I don't want the crazy nosie. I was looking into the Hercules Trail Diggers I think they are. Anyways, let me know what tire you think is the best..

    Good luck. It's such a pain in the ass trying to figure this out. Right now I'm stuck with these.

    Lightweight to save mpg:
    1. Dueler Revo 2
    2. Destination

    Performance:
    1. Hankook ATM
    2. BFG A/T
    3. Wrangler Duratrac

    I'm leaning toward the Dueler's though.:cool:

    im going with the duratracs (285) in a month or two. good price. good looks and really not that heavy. (about 10lbs per tire more over my 265 silent armors.)

    That is a LOT of added weight when you factor in the added rotational mass

    What are the MT's like in the snow and what are they like for noise? do they wear fast? I know some mud tires do wear faster then what they should and others last as long as AT's do.

    You just named basically the main flaws of MTs. Those are the reasons I wont run them since my truck is my daily driver. MTs are heavier as well, and the tread does not last as long.

    However I am not speaking from experience so I am open to being corrected. The guys that mentioned MTs are from the dessert so I assume they don't have to encounter snowy road conditions regularly.

    I know mt's make nosie. I have the coopers and they are pretty good compared to other tires like wranglers for example. I would like to see what everyone would have to say about there tires when it comes to snow... I use the same rim and tire setup all year long.
