    OEM tires are worn out. I am looking for a tire with decent snow traction and is quiet on the highway. Considering Good Year Silent Armor. Any experiences?

    ^I haven't used the Silent Armor, but I'm happy with my duratracs. They hum on the highway, but traction seems to be very good on pavement. Offroad they are pretty good too.

    Don't go Silent Armor; Goodyear is discontinuing them. They're being replaced by the Wrangler AT Adventure.
    You might be able to find a "good deal" on a set because of that, but bear in mind that if you get an unrepairable flat in six months you'll probably be SOL on replacing it with a matching tire.:eek:

    Quiet on the highway, excellent in sand, mud, snow, inexpensive... just not a long life (31,000 miles when I replaced them) they were P rated not LT.

    I have not tried the new guys in the snow or mud... but they were inexpensive and quiet on the highway... from PepBoys/ Cooper: Destiny Dakota ATs:
