    Well if you want the best go for the michelin LTX A/T2.

    Its not going to be the cheapest option though.

    The Cooper H/T is a very good tire if you want a street tire for a good price. They last a long time and have good traction with plenty of sipes for winter driving.

    Michelin LTX MS2's are the best tires hands down for highway use. Smooth, very quiet and good on gas mileage.....70K mileage warranty. but it will cost ya.

    I had the Yokahama Geolanders on my Tundra and they were great on the road and highway. I never had a problem in the rain or snow either. When I bought the truck they had 10000miles and I put another 30000+ miles on it before I traded it in and they still had a lot of life.
    If I didnt want an AT/offroad tire I would definatly go for the Geolanders again. Cheaper than most, great handeling and very good tread wear!!!!

    If you want to get a lot of miles out of a tire, look at BFG A/T's. I was able to get 80k on a set with my 1st gen. They still had plenty of tread also, I sold the truck, so I don't know how many miles they ended up with. I have heard stories of people getting 100k and more out of those tires.

    I'm going with either of these when the current Goodyear Wrangler SR/A(s) wear out. Dealer I bought my '07 from last year put them on...glad they replaced the Dunflops.

    I run Bridgestone Blizzaks for winter (Alaska).

    I've been happy with the Cooper ATR's so far, but if I don't get the mileage out of them I'll go with Michelin.

    (as for your poll, I voted for the Cooper ATRs as I had them on my '05 Tacoma, and they served me well... I do like my new Hankooks very well, however).
