    I have been looking and I can't find anything that really answers my question about good all round tires.

    I am looking for a list of tires that have the Mountain Snowflake symbol so I can take a look at which tire I should replace my stock tires with.

    I am probably going to get the Duratracs, but...I want to see all my options so I know I've done my research.

    I live in Winnipeg, Canada and we get snow covered/hard pack/ice covered roads for a good 4-5 months of the year but I don't want to have two sets of tires as I can't afford to buy two sets right now.

    I'm looking for something that looks aggressive and does well off road but also has good road manners. So basically I am looking for the very best all round tire for a city that sees extremes in all types of weather. My guess is it will either be the BFG's or the Duratracs.

    Any suggestions?

    You've already made your decision. There really isn't anything else. Only other thing you can do is keep your stockers and get something like the Hankook MT or Firestone Destination MT and get them studded. Big lugs for the snow, studs for the ice, massive win all round.

    Myself I just run MT's year round. Just gotta take it real easy on the icy roads. I'm out of Alberta btw, so I know Canadian winters too. ;)

    I'm looking at switching the stock Dunlops off for the Nokian WRG2's before the snow flies in Alberta. It will be first winter with this truck and I have zero confidence in the stock tires and would love to run dedicated winter tires but don't want to mess with TPMS issues - so Nokian it is. From what I've read you really can't get any better unless you need them for serious off-road use.
