I have Cooper AT3's on mine now for 3 years. So far they are holding up well. My only complaint is that I do seem to get a fair amount of browning on certain areas on the sidewall but at least it comes off with a good tire cleaner.

Tuned/deleted 6.7 L, Hardway tune/deletes/exhaust selectable to 550 Hp
Had Nitto Mud Grapplers for 50 K miles + in South FL. ('13 2500, 6.7, 8 inch lift, full delete, tune to 550, 1100 lb torque) Will pull a house off foundation. But 15.5 wides/20/40's desstroyed two driver side hubs, and broke two drag link ends clean off! Went with 13.5 wides and no repeats. Nitto isnt delivering the Mud Grapplers locally. They're noisy but I like the sound on the hwy! I'd say in serious 4wd applications (36 in snow etc) theyd be unstoppable. Strictly hwy and minimal 4wd needs, ridge runners are adequate and hwy friendly IMO!

I've been using BF Goodrich AT KO 2 for a long time. (size 285R70/17) I only have to replace them every 8 years due to wear. My wife and I think they are a very safe snow tire and take peace of mind knowing how well they have done for us in the snow. They are pricey, but I will continue to get them for all of our trucks.

i upgraded from the **** hole stock Goodyears a year or two ago. I went with the nitto ridge grapplers, and not much to complain about. I’ve been looking to replace two of mine that a wheel bearing, and alignment have worn out the outside. Im starting to think that maybe falken wildpeak at3w, general grabber atx, or maybe the cooper at3 4s maybe a better option overall. I don’t tow much if at all, only off-road I do is back roads for camping and fishing so basically just dirt roads and rock. The one thing I do want is good traction in the snow. I live in the Adirondacks and we can get up to 32” in a snow storm. I don’t know if it’s worth switching over 4 all new tires or just saying ehh and grab two new ridge grapplers for the two that are worn down on the outside.
I run KO2's and don't regret it at all. They are quiet on the highway, good in the mud which I do very little, but good patterns for the snow which we get a bunch of here in Ontario. They handle rain well also. The only advice I can give is narrower tires cut through snow and water better, so if you are choosing a size, the smaller is usually better, and not to mention cheaper. I bought the 20" ko2s to fit the factory rims, and it was pricey.
18" would be the preferred option if I had to choose over.

I have said it many times here Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S....... there are a copule of AT3s from Cooper you want the 4S. It used to be the ATW+4. They are outstanding for general use lower temp rubber keeps them gripping in the cold and snow. Check out some of the videos on line.

Even though popular here, you can take michelin's off the list unless you want recycled plastic in your tires, their new agenda. Cooper top choice wildpeak a great value pick, but BFG's are my favorite from my experiences.

Woke Michelin reportedly tested for breakage resistance, toughness, and thermal stability. Well jeeze that's just great, anything about longevity?? Opps, maybe this darwin move works out but why take a chance with you and your families lives? There are plenty of things they can use recycled plastic for, it doesnt have to go into tires, this is a "choice". It certainly isnt being stated this is a better product then plastic that wasnt previously denatured.
Discount Tires Pathfinder A/Ts are the ones. Good luck.

in KS now, but born and raised in the Adirondacks... I ran Wildpeak AT3W LT tires (kept at 42 PSI) for over 100,000 mile here on my last truck, got 72K on the first set, traded in the truck in with lots of life on the 2d. -- great in rain, snow and off road. planning to put on my new RAM when i wear down the factory tires a bit more.

OP, I didn't see this post ,so I post now.

First off, I have run the BFG ATs, for over 18 years or at least as long as they have been available.
I ran these tire on my '88 Ford Ranger and my '03 Ranger, getting 8 plus years out of the tires... that works, along with all the things these tires are capable of.

I recently purchased a '21 Bighorn and I am running 35 x 12.5 x 18s, so we will see how good the BFGs are on the larger trucks.

I have always run the BFG Wide Oval tire on my Mustangs and they stood the test of time and me.

I cant speak good or bad of the other tires but to me, the BFG ATs are the end all for All Terrain Tires.

Sorry I didn't read all of the previous postings so if I repeated anything, you know why.
