    Dean SXT Mud Terrain is def the best tire I have found yet. Works Awesome in the mud as I know from my old Tacoma, Also dose not wear quick when driving on the pavement. Awesome tire, Give it a try!

    Toyo Opencountry AT's. I've had 2 sets, the current set has been on for 2-3 years and at least 30,000 and they still have about 1/2 their tread left. Very good in snow, and quiet on the road.

    I have considered these tires from time to time when I am looking at purchasing tires. They are always on my list. The problem with my choice, I always choose BFGoodrich All Terrain TA KOs. They have always performed well for me, so my favorite tire is BFG.

    My other tires of interest are:

    • Toyo Tires Open Country A/T
    • Goodyear Duratracs
    Maybe I'll step outside of my box and give the GY Duratracs a run when I need to get some new tires.

    bfg at's are the best tire i have tried so far. they have great traction on pavement, in rain and snow, and also in the dirt. i just put a set of cooper zeon ltz's on the taco but only have about 500 miles on them and haven't been off-road or in the snow/ice with them yet so i can't compare them to anything yet. judging buy all the reviews i've seen on them i shouldn't be let down. good luck

    Street tires, Michelins can't be beat. Any kind of off roading I would go with the Toyo M/T's even though I couldn't afford them, lol.

    Can't go wrong with BFG or Michelins. I'm so ready to get these stock Firestones off. I can't decide whether to go with BFG ATs or KM2s. Time will tell.

    My only concern is the snow. I know the ATs handle well, but have heard mixed reviews of the KM2s in snow.

    Well you need to get the tires that are going to perform the best for what you need so you should have your answer. But there are plenty more tires out there than just BFGs.

    X2! They're as quiet as the factory duelers and have yet to let me down.

    I would only get these for A/T's.

    But for a moderate M/T, I would definitely get the BFG KM2's! Thats probably going to be my next set of tires in a year or so.

    I've had Nitto Terra Grapplers, Bfg at's, Bfg mt's, Pro comp extreme a/t's and my current Goodyear Duratracs. Out of them all, I like the the Duratracs the best. They have really good dry and wet pavement traction, seem to be wearing really good and also look really aggressive. I would buy these tires a second time around for sure. I haven't had them in mud yet, but I have the feeling they will perform great.

    the Km2s do great in snow i went offroading the other day and did this hill climb i thought i had no chance of getting up. I had the all terrains on my lifted jeep the km2s are way better IMO. Really impressed with the km2s, plus they look awesome!
