    None so far!
    What is everyone running for winter tires? My ultimate goal/plan is to run my stock TRD Sport wheels in the winter and different tire/wheel combo in the summer.

    On my old ram I had the hankook dynapro ATM. They were amazing in the snow. They don't make them anymore and changed them to the at2

    Thanks in advance

    Are you looking for a proper snow tire or a tire that can get by in the winter?

    Im running Blizzak DM-V2s on my Tacoma and my Tundra.

    Little bit of both. I would probably put them on around this time of year. That way to skip the rush of people needing tires

    Blizzak for dedicated. But Im hoping the Wildpeak AT3W will do most everything I want.

    Nokian Hakkapeliitta SUV R2's. Worth every penny. I believe they have R3's now. When these wear out I will be buying another set.

    Yeah I run Falken AT3W for 3 seasons and then Blizzaks for winter.

    Depending on where you are, this time of year is fine for Blizzaks. My Tundra lives in MA and has been in Blizzaks since Halloween.

    While I haven’t been caught in weather with them yet, I hope the AT3W would do well enough if I’m caught in something light.

    i do my swaps myself so timing isn’t too big of a deal.

    I have the R3s on my F-150 and they're excellent. Definitely the best studless snow tire on the market.

    Our midwest winters aren't too bad and my commute is only 4 miles to work so Cooper AT3s do the job fine in 4x4 but my wife has a set of blizzaks that are great

    I live on the cascades in central oregon and regularly drive deep snow during the winter and my at3ws have never left me stuck anywhere. Great tire for year round use in mountain climate( it snows here in July sometimes)

    Not sure if they come in the size you need, but I had Yokohama Iceguards on my first gen. Did very well.

    Wildpeak AT3W’s get me through all four seasons up here in northern VT. I definitely don’t hold back when it comes to driving in winter weather either.

    That was my plan, too. I ended up just running AT3Ws year-round. They have been fine so far.

    On my old jetta I ran blizzaks in the winter. They made a big difference compared to whatever 3 season street tires I had.
