I’ve been looking at all terrains and there are way too many choices. It seems like there’s not one that’s all that much of a 50/50 jack of all trades tire. They’re either good on the street and meh in the dirt or vise-versa. (The drag radial of the off-road world..)
The BFG Ko2’s seem to be popular. But I’ve read accounts on how they suck in the rain so that’s a no go. Does anyone have one they’d recommend? Ice and snow are mostly a non issue. But rain handling and a set that don’t scream their azzez off going down the hwy are pretty high on the needs list.
Mud and dirt would be the all the off-road obstacles that’d need conquering.

I've had BFG All Terrains and Nitto Terra Grapplers and been very happy with both. I think the BFG's wore better but I liked the performance of the Nitto more, I would not hesitate getting either one again but lean a little more towards the Nitto.

I have Firestone Destination ATs on my '03 F250 (6.0 4wd). They are the best "compromise" tire I've had on it so far...pretty good in sloppy stuff at the farm, but I'm careful where I go with it acknowledging all the weight I'm carrying. Last year, I used it to travel to Texas and back...highway performance is very good...minimal noise. Mine are 285/75-16s on the factory wheels...no lift...so abt as big a tire as the wheels and height can accommodate. I cannot speak to the longevity yet as my truck tires typically rot due to exposure before being worn out.

Underestimate me, that will be fun.

No problems on the hwy in rain?

I’ll check ‘em out. They’d be going on a half ton.

The Nittos seem to do better to me but it may be because the BFGs were a harder tire that wore really well.

I like nitto’s. I have a couple sets of nt555’s on the cars now.
Do the nitto’s have a white letters out option?
PS
I hope the Cowboys don’t stink.

I'm not sure if they have a white letter option, mine were just black lettering. As far as the football season goes if the NFL continues to not take control of their kneeling thugs I'm done with them.

Ive got Nitto terra grapplers on my f250 and couldnt ask for a better tire. They are 35" and have just a slight hum at 80mph. Rain and dry handling are both great. I havent gotten them in mud yet, though. As far as I know these are only black letter tires.



Now, an all terrain that will surprise you (especially for the cost) is the Hankook Dynapro ATM. They have a nice tread pattern and work really well all the time. I have the on my excursion and have had a set on my company truck for a couple years now. Handling is great, Ive had them in mud/rain/ice and never been let down, they are quiet and smooth, and Ive had mine for roughly 80k miles. They are due to be replaced now. They still have some tread but they spin pretty easy in the rain, never scared me as far as handling though. These have white letter too.





Either one of these two would make you happy, Im sure.

I know, me too. They took the fun out of it.

Sweet. I’ll keep the dyapro in my back pocket. My bro in law has nitto ridge grapplers on his Chevy 2500. He says he likes them alright, but they’re pricey.

I really like the nitto tires but a big down side is the price. They are quiet and smooth, havent really tried them out yet, though.

I like that video to. Surprisingly these things do well for an all terrain.

I've used all the popular tires on the market, since I've been an avid four-wheeler for over 20 years. In my opinion, the best A/T tire currently on the market is the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W.

Here are a sample of others that I've used that did very well:

BFG KO2
Cooper AT3
Hankook Dynapro ATm
Goodyear Duratrac
Toyo Open Country AT

Here are the ones I wouldn't buy again:

Nitto (often referred to as Shitto) Terra Grappler
Firestone Destination A/T

2003 Mach 1 - TR3650 - Ford Performance aluminum shaft - Mac O/R H-pipe - Airbox modification - 17% tint

Gone but not forgotten:
2001 GT auto in Zinc Yellow-Flowmaster mufflers - Pypes O/R H pipe-Eibach Sportline springs/Koni STR.T shocks-AMR wheels w/ 315/35 MT Street Comps-FR 3.73s-Blankenship Performance tuning-Steeda Under-drive pulleys-BBK CAI-AcuFab 70mm TB
