    265/70r16 Rugged Trails aka Rugged Fails. They worked so far, but I don't go off road much. They are the original tires so I'll be replacing them with 265/75r16 Cooper Discoverer ATPs. Waiting to get them mounting and I'll see if they are any good.

    Hankook DynaPro ATm in P265/75-16. These tires are surprisingly good on pavement, quiet on the highway and grippy in corners. Too bad Hankook doesn't make them in 215/60R-16, or I'd run them on my Subaru as well. :D

    maxxis buckshot 265/70/17, i think it's a great bang for the buck tire. not noisy at all on the road and it has done well off-road so far. i would definitely buy another set.

    same shit as everyone else
    Don't get KM2's if you like to ride in the snow. I don't care what the rating say on them, unless its unpacked and no ice you WILL slide off the road

    285/75/16 BGF AT KO's - Bought them used with 90% tread left. Besides the cupping due to the previous owner having tree limbs for shock absorbers, I like them a lot. Not too loud, very nice looking, and best of all, you can run them on 0psi for 1/2 mile on asphalt until you get to the gas station to air up. Don't ask...

    35x12.50x17 Mickey Thompson Baja Claw TTC here. Amazing Offroad traction. Not to mention they took me thru 300 miles of the Mojave national preserve this past weekend at 15psi and never missed a beat in rocks sand or hard pack. Love these tires!

    Previous tires were Cooper Discoverer ATR's in 265/65R17. I really liked the tires. They were great on the road and excellent in rain and snow. They developed cracks on the sidewall about 1" up from the rim on all 4 tires so Cooper warrantied them for me with just over 50% tread remaining.

    I replaced them with Cooper Discoverer AT3s in 265/70R17. Overall, they're not a bad tire. They seem very sensitive to the pressure setting, a few psi seems to be the difference betwen wandering all over the road and tracking somewhat straight. They've gotten louder on pavement as time has gone on. Unfortunately, we haven't had any snow to play in but traction has been good everywhere else. Overall, not a bad tire but I liked their predecessor (the ATR) better.

    Someone made a thread about them a while back. They seem like a decent looking tire! I've got another year or so on the AT3's, then I'll be on the hunt for new tires. :cool:
