I've heard good things about the Cooper Discoverer STT's. Aggresive tread pattern + siping. I'm looking into either a set of those, Maxxis Bighorns or MT Baja Radial ATZ's. Good luck in your search. I've found googling either one of these tires yeilded some helpful reviews.

I just purchased the Cooper STT's for year round use. They are siped, but there's not a ton of it. Definitelt more than most MT's. Most people here in Buffalo run the BFG AT's and say they are fantastic in the winter. If you are not used to driving in the snow and ice, go with an aggressive AT instead of an MT. You'll feel much more comfortable. The Cooper ST (not STT) is a very aggresive AT to the point of almost being an MT. It has nore siping - you might want to look into that. PM me sometime in December and I'll let you know how they work out. Here's a pic of the siping on the Coopers...

If you're looking at getting to and fro work mainly, I'd suggest going with an AT. MT's are great in deep snow, but AT's do better in packed / road snow conditions.

Check out the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor.

Had the BFG ATs on my WJ and loved them in snowy road conditions. Replaced them at 50K miles due to an accident and they still had usable tread. Went with Silent Armors just for something differant (in AZ now so not much snow). Ride is smoother so far and my wife is happy with them. BFGs seem to be a bit more aggressive of an AT pattern wise.
