Least gay looking AT?

K guys, I just got a steal of a deal on some like nwe 16x10 aluminum wheels and am looking to throw a set of ATs on them for the spring and summer. I do a lot of driving in the summer, and am looking to pull the MTs as soon as it dries up a little.

So who makes the least gay looking AT? Ill be going 285 or 305, and do haul a 4horse trailer with living qtrs from time to time. Im trying to stay away from the BFG ATs they seem to chip really bad running up and down gravel roads.

Currently looking at Nitto terre grapplers, Toyo A/Ts, Hankook ATs, Goodyear ATS...... whats ya'lls thoughts?

I also do get off the beaten path a little so they gotta get me where im going.

I like my Bridgestone Duelers. A buddy of mine just bought a set of Mastercraft Courser AT's that look really good.

I was happy with my nittos and I got a little over 40k out of them. Wet traction had a little to be desired. I put these procomp xtreme AT's on now and love them.

Take a look at the Hankook Dynapros on line or at Discount Tire. I have had lots of luck with them

Least gay looking AT?

How about Goodyear Duratrack. half AT half MT with a Mountain Snowflake certification.
Check out also the Dunlop Maxx Traction. Not a full bread MT - more AT but alot of strong looks and capability - also a Mountain Snowflake certification.

Other less thought of option - Parnelli Jones AT???

Personally - I run Nitto Terra Grapplers and love them!

I have the Toyo AT's a buddy has the Nitto AT's, but have a pretty rugged look to them for being AT's. I also have a set of BFG AT's on my Jeep. All look pretty good and the ones I have ride really quiet and have great wear.

thanks for the input guys, I will look into the Bridgestones, and the mastercrafts as well as the parnelli jones. At this point im leaning heavily towards the Nittos or the Toyos. and will probly take a closer look at the Bridgstones.

thanks

I don't have a personal review on them but a friend of mine has them on his 2000 F-350 SRW and absolutely loves them. He's on his second set.

Ive run alot of mastercraft tires and had decent luck out of them over the years. A buddy of mine owns a small tireshop and he carries mostly mastercraft and I looked at the ATs a week or so ago and they werent bad.

Man I hate trying to pick new rubber, im of the opinion that tires and wheels make or break a trucks appearance and dont wana regret a $1000 investment.
