    Default A/T Tires

    Looks like I will need new tires on my 4runner this Winter. I hunt usually 4 days a week from October-February. The afternoon trips are usually only 30ish miles one way, but I will also burn a couple days of vacation each month and rack up miles bouncing all over the state. I'm looking for suggestions for all terrain tires that can handle the highway, my daily commute to work, mud roads, and the occasional snow we get here in KS.

    Good all terrain traction is paramount, and I definitely give bonus points for puncture resistance and durability. What tires are you guys having success with, and what tires should be avoided?

    FWIW, my 4runner came stock with Nitto terra grapplers, which I thought had pretty decent traction, but I have had multiple punctures and I don't think I can push them much past 30K miles. About the only way I would buy them again would be if I had an extra set of wheels so I could save them for hunting season only, and not burn them up taxiing kids around town.

    For an all terrain, you canít beat the Cooper Discoverer AT3. However, I run the Cooper Discoverer STT Pro (their mud tire) on my pickup, and itís the best tire Iíve ever had. Iím getting my second set put on tomorrow. Iíve never been stuck with them, even in some horrible muddy conditions, which you are likely to encounter on the Kansas pheasant roads. They also lasted for 70,000+ miles, handled great on the highway, werenít very loud, and didnít seem to negatively effect my gas mileage. Cooper also makes all of their tires in the USA. I canít recommend them enough.

    If youíre set on an all terrain though, I think the Cooper Discoverer AT3 is hands down the best option on the market.

    The stock Firestone tires on a dodge pickup are terrible in the mud.So I am kind in the same boat and have been trying to figure out what to put on it. There are so many good choices but I have kind of been leaning towards falken wildpeak at3w

    I've have two sets of the Hankook dynapros on my truck and have had no complaints.

    I use BF Goodrich A/T tires on my Silverado 1500. Best tire I’ve had. You can count on nearly 50 K miles if you rotate them every other oil change. Quiet on the highway, great on dirt roads, snow and mud.

    I've had the same experience with Hankook Dynapros. Good tires at a reasonable price.

    Toyo's for me. Cooper, Mastercraft, and Hercules all excellent tires. Whatever you get, get a 10 ply. Unless you like plugging tires.

    We have been using Hercules Terra Trac T\G Max tires. 80% of the driving is on gravel roads and they are lasting longer then anything else we have tried. They are a little loud on the Highway..But snow and mud traction is good.

    Yep I will probably go with a Hercules tire next time. I like Cooper (Mastercraft same company) but I did not get the mileage out of them. I would get to about 45,000 and replace them But the sand out here seems to eat them up.

    I have Hercules Terra Trac II A/T on my Suburban. Quiet, good tread pattern and wearing well so far.

    Make sure they have a LT tire in your size - not a P tire.
