Well I hate to admit it but I bought my tires at walmart. I know it's sounds pretty bad or like I should be saying this at a A.A. group meeting or a setting like that. Now with that beeing said I did buy the Goodyear Wrangler Authority A/T or M/T I think. Now for gas millage wasn't that large of a loss but for the winter and off road traction that I gained I was willing to make the trade off. I think I lost a mpg or two. I also have a dually so without that the mpg loss will most likely be less. You can only get them at wally world or that was the case last year when I got them. With 20k on them I am also happy with the wear that they have had so far it has been very minimal. They were also a very fair price for load range E. Now many people will tell u to speed a hell of a lot more for Nitto's or Dick Cepeck's ect... If u want to pay for a name to some degree u can. Don't get me wrong they are great tires nut for mostly on road use it's a bit overkill. But that's my own opinion and u know what they say about that. Sorry for the long post hope it helps.

I'm in NH, but we have -20F and tons of snow too, so I'll chime in. Love my Hankook ATM all terrains. Great in the snow and well mannered enough for the summer. Picked 'em up at discounttire.

I don't want to come off like a jerk but the last set of hankook's I had were the cheapest piles of u know what. The tread wore off to fast (ie..20,000 miles)and they didn't wear evenly at all. If you had better time with them I'm glad to hear that but from what I've seen in the past with others and mine first hand use is that they have had them they have had nothing bad luck with them also. I would never put them on my fleet of plumbing trucks. I believe in you get what you pay for. I know that goes against what I said before but I got a deal and I got lucky.

Well, I certainly hope that doesn't happen to me! I've had good luck so far...

You didn't come off like a jerk at all.

BFG AT's are tough to beat, other than the price... Great traction and long life. There is a reason they have been around forever with no major changes. They're just really expensive compared to other tires in the same category. I would recommend an AT over an MT for on road driving everyday of the week. They do better in snow, rain, ice, etc. Can't beat a mud tire in the mud of course, but the AT's are a better all around tire.
