I'm a big fan of the General Grabber AT2's. Two sets on my WJ, one set on my WK, one set on my kids' xTerra, and a set on my Dodge Ram 2500. Get about 50k miles out of them and they are good in most conditions. Hard to beat for the price. Revo's and Duratrac's are good too, but pricey.

Cooper Discoverer AT3.

Great tire, a true "all terrain". I have mine for a couple of years and they still holding great. I go wheeling with them and take muliple trips to the mountains during the winter months.

Great as a daily driver, and highway. Amazing in dirt roads, sand and snow. So-so in mud and ice.

Mine are 255/65/17 on factory wheels.

Good luck in your search.

Toyo Open Country AT is a great tire. I put 50,000 miles on my first set. They still had a little life left but I installed a lift and with winter coming I replaced them with another set of Toyo's but 265/70r17. They were great in the snow. Three years ago we drove to Chicago during a horrible snow storm and I never felt like I was going to lose control, they stuck to the road. I liked them before then but that trip made them my tire of choice. Plus they now have a 65,000 mile warranty.

I used to like Coopers but they look like **** after 25k. And living off of 8 miles of gravel everyday to get to work, switching to Nittos was the best thing I ever did. I even convinced my brother to put them on his work trucks and wife's truck.

Cooper discoverer at3 is what I have on my crd and my wife's wrangler. They are inexpensive, wear good, good traction, and they are quiet.

Continental recently came out with the TerrainContact A/T which I have installed now. We'll see how they go.

How are you liking the Continental TerrainContact A/T? How's the road noise?

I just put on Hankook Dynapro ATms (255/70R18) on my '08 Overland. Nice and quiet, handles the rain quite well. Can't wait for a GOOD snow to play with them. Good side biters and nice tread pattern. Paid $134/ tire.

Durability? Not from personal experience, but my mechanic has the same tire on his F150 and has had great durability from them.

95 XJ, 4.0 93 ZJ, 4.0 96 ZJ, 4.0 03 WJ, 4.7 02 WJ and now an 08 Overland. I guess I like GCs!!!

Been loving them so far. They track great in snow and rain. Road noise isn't bad either.

I've been running Firestone Destination AT on multiple vehicles for years now and they've been great.

I've ran Duratracs on my last two Grand Cherokees and they are a great all round tire. Good in the snow, not too loud, and pretty good off-road.

They aren't an Ice tire. My wifes CX-5 on winters kills mine on ice. That said they can be studded but then they wouldn't be year round tires..

I hear people said the sidewalls are bad but I've never had a problem and I do wheel it. I've also never personally seen one blow but I do know somone who did.
