    I'm about to be pulling the trigger soon on new tires and ive narrowed my choices down between a few. if any of y'all have info, opinions etc about these tires or other tires feel free to throw it in there! any help is appreciated!:thumbsup:

    Also I live in Southern West Virginia and Eastern Kentucky where the winters are nasty and the roads are'nt always the best....preferring to stick to a all terrain aggressive tire

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Falken-Wildpeak-AT3W-Tire-P285-70R17-117T/54383728

    I see alot of people running the wildpeaks and seem to see nothing but good out of the threads on them. they come with either a 50 or 55k warranty on them which in my opinion is hard to beat.

    https://www.carid.com/bfgoodrich-tires/all-terrain-t-a-ko2-55182189.html?child_id=818237674

    The next set I was considering was the ko2 i see alot of people running theese for offroading but I do very little offroading in my truck and what I do, do is not very rough mainly gas well roads and mine roads. I dont see a warranty with the ko2 and im not sure how well they wear or how well they perform as a daily driver mainly highway.

    Following for interest! I currently have to KO2 and really enjoy them, but definitely agree that they are prob not that fuel efficient or great for highway use..

    Falken - loving mine. Snow, rain and highway driving they are great. Deep snow offroad really good, couldn't get stuck. Pulled others out in same conditions. Icy roads they do really well also. No dry dirt road testing yet as I bought them at the start of winter. I would buy them again. Btw - 245/75/16. Cheers

    You forgot to add another category to your tire list: "I am too much of a pussy to make a choice by myself"

    well I live in Southern West Virginia and Eastern Kentucky so a more agressive tire is needed...our winters are nasty and the roads arent exactly great in some places...plus I like an agressive looking tire on my taco lol:D

    Toyo Open Country AT2

    Handle Maine winter's just fine.

    Load Range C version has deeper treads & more aggressive sidewall than P rated version. I'm on set #2.

    I run them because they're cheap. They're fine. No road noise but also look like shit, so it's a give and take
