    Let me have it. What have you ran and what worked the best in snow in an all terrain tire. For me its the Yokohama Geolander AT II's. They gave me poor mpg, getting noisey as they age, but have outstanding snow traction. Im looking for a replacement.

    I like my BFG KO/ATs, a little noisy on the highway, but great so far in snow and rain.

    My old BFG AT's were wonderful in the snowy mountains :thumbsup:
    MT's are a little better, but only in really wet sticky snow

    i use BFGoodrich land terrains they are a replacement for the ole trail t/a's as far as i know they are only available in canada. i would have gone with a more aggresive tire but i put a ton of pavement miles mainly hwy on each month. so i needed something that could get have decent traction as well as good wear. so far i have no complaints put about 20,000 km in 8 months still look fine for wear.

    Lots of good ideas folks. Any word on Michelin LTX AT's or Dunlap Radial Rover RVXT's?

    I had michelin ltx a/t's very good tread wear (i got about 75k and theres still tread left) and all around very good performer. Just got new bfg a/t's so I'll see how those do.

    Another one for the Toyo Open Country ATs. Had some decent snow back in early December and was nothing but IMPRESSED with them. We had it all, ice, powder, wet snow and slush, and they were great.
