Sand, Rain, and Snow

I will be replacing my worn 315/60-20 Toyo M/Ts. I need an E load rating, and will be using the Excursion in the snow, and on the beach, and, since I'm inj the PNW, the tire needs to handle wet pavement well.
Suggestions would be appreciated.

Im a really big fan of the BFG A/t ko, they are amazing tires! I live in the PNW as well and I have had two sets and they handle great in everyhing. Just my 2 cents for ya.

That's all I run on my 4x4's. I've always been pleased. They are super sensitive to pressure, so make sure you keep an eye on them, because they will wear odd and fast if the pressure is way low, I learned that the hard way

Thanks for the recommendation.
I had BFG ATs and I thought that they had a strong tendancy to load up.
BFG MTs handled deep snow real well but left a lot to be desired on ice or hard pack. I'm leaning toward a set of Trxus MTs but am having trouble getting over the balancing issues. I'm real familiar with Interco as I have a set of 37 SS on my Samurai, and they have roundness issues, but luckily that doesn't come into play when crawling!

I would never run Interco, except on a crawler like you said. And even then... Bad bad experiences... But the only time my BFG AT's ever really packed up on me was in mud, that real nasty Caliche mud. I've run them through deep snow etc and been overall pleased. You might look into a goodyear silent armor. They're a severe snow rated tire, and kevlar belted. My issue with any MT really is how much I pull. I don't like how they handle. I have heard good things about those goodyears though.

Keep the tires narrow with the snow. Looking forward to running my new ones this winter. My half worn 315/75r16's on my old Ram were underwhelming in DEEP snow, but they had too much width for the amount of bite an A/T has, especially at barely half tread and headlight deep snow with drifts coming over the hood...maybe i shouldnt complain since i didnt actually get stuck...

I run Toyo H/T's on the fat girl up here in Washington. I have never been stuck. Then again she doesn't go off road.

nitto trail Grapplers are bad a** in an anything throw at them and they seem to wear extremly slow compared to you usual agressive A/T / M/T I have 10k on mine and they still look brand new and believe me when i say i like the white smoke comin from those tires... you cant compare the sands on the texas coast line to any other sand in the country it is way finer sand and you get stuck extremely easy but with the trails i have yet to spin a tire unless i wanted to of course... snow is the same way and they handle very well on wet pavement as well as dry i just think they are the ultimate tire in my opinion...

I see a ton of those tires on duallys and 3/4-1 ton trucks. Almost everyday I see one in the shop with them on it.
