    I have researching tire reviews and am as uncertain as when I started. Mostly drive on pavement, snow a big factor, some mild to moderate trails. For a 99 with factory TRD suspension. Thinking about the Yoko geolander at/s, Goodyear wrangler silent armour, or Michelein LTX at2. Anybody have experience with these models or another out there? I've BFG's and had to remove due to vibration.

    Thanks.

    I have a set of Michelin LTX AT2's on now. I really like them. They do throw rocks pretty bad on the dirt/gravel roads I drive. They are quiet, and seem to do well in snow. I have not had to use them in the mud yet. You may want to also look at the LTX M/S tire as well. They are less aggressive than the AT2's, and may suit you better with the highway driving. I've had several sets of them on different pickups and liked them a lot. They go in mud much better than they look like they would. My tire guy says he has a lot of trouble keeping the Goodyear silent armor tires balanced. I don't know anything about the Yoko tires.
