I would take a strong look at Hankook ATm's. I had 4 sets of BFG AT KO's. All I can say is that these Hankooks rock. Quite, they don't follow the grooves in the road. In snow, ice and hard pack no problem. This is do to the extra deep sipping. Larger deep grooves with stepped lugs works well in mud. Very low wear and they look great. I will buy them again.

X2 for the hankooks . My stock michellins were gone at 24,000 miles. And I went with the hankook atms and I've got almost 20,000 miles on them and they have about 90% tread left. Plus I live in a rural area and drive on a lot of gravel roads and no problems !

I'd recommend the Nitto Trail Grapplers also, they are pretty quiet and I'm running a 35x12.50x18 on my stock rims just fine. They are more aggressive than the above posts however which is good if you want it to handle offroad better.

I have the toyo open country at 2 in 35/12.5/20 and they are really quite. I had the toyo mt and nitto trail and both those are great tires but were a little loud for my taste. This at2 also have a 50000 mile tread warrenty. The side wall is somewhat aggressive and they do great the snow have not had them in to much mud yet.

Compare the 35x12.5 with 295/70R18 before pulling the trigger. They are both available in Nitto MT. The 295/70R18 is a much stronger tire (higher PSI, Load rating, ect..)
