4. Falken Wildpeak A/T3W

5. Yokohama Geolander ATG015

best snow tire would be a snow tire. Wont compare to any At , Mt. compounds are not the same and the huge amount of siping . Down side is they are only for winter use. they wear to fast in the heat and dry roads.

I had the K02's on my For S-crew, and never ever had an issue. Little heavier vehicle, but they performed flawlessly. I had the K0's and on before them for ~50K miles, and they were great too.

I JUST put a set of the Duratracs on my work truck, and so far so good. I've also heard great reports on them for wintertime driving.

I've used the Toyo Open Country tires for 40 years, first on my FJ40 Land cruiser and since 2001 on my XJ. I have gotten 50k plus and never been stuck. Good Enough for me.

Ran the BFG AT’s for years and liked how they worked in the snow and ice. In 2012, I tried the Duratracs. Big improvement in winter driving. I put a set on the TJ 3 years ago and the Jeep is way more stable driving in the snow and ice. Had BFG M/T’s before, and hated how they worked on compact snow and ice. Was also really impressed with their offroad traction in all conditions. Run them at 8psi and they seemed to grip everything, wet or dry.

Just fitted my 2K9 GCL with a set of Firestone Destination AT2's in 255/70-18 on Black Sahara wheels. But mentioned earlier these are not snow tires even with the mountain snow flake. I just figure their a little softer compound to get the rating (IMO). Been looking at the BFG All-Terrain also but the AT2 just seemed to be going in the direction I hope to go and back.

I live in wi and I have the nitro g2's on my wk2. they make a little road noise but traction in snow is amazing. very happy with them. we tow a 4500lb camper almost every weekend also and they handle that very well.
