Starting the tire shopping early

Hey guys, I have been looking for the best all around tire for my truck. I have a 05 F350, and I bought the truck with Toyo A/T's and 2 of them are more worn than the other two, probably from lack of rotating them on time from previous owner.

I have 4 boys and so the adventures are going to be happening more and more. Not heavy offroading but mild stuff, going up to the mountains and playing in the snow, going hiking, some mud, but also want a good strong tow tire, we plan on getting a TT/5er.

Tires I'm interested in are Nitto Ridge Grapplers, Toyo R/T, A/T, C/T, and Cooper AT3's.
I am looking at 295/65/20 which seem to have the highest load ratings.

Experience with any of those in extreme conditions (wet, snow, ice, mud) and even longevity of tire. These suckers are NOT cheap. lol

Thanks!

Recently read an article on an overlanding website (Expedition Portal) that tested several A/T tires for on and off road performance. The article is from 2014, so things may have changed in the last 5 years, , but I think it gives a good breakdown of the tires pros and cons for several popular A/T tire options:

https://expeditionportal.com/where-t...eets-the-road/

TLDR: They picked the Cooper Discover A/T3 as the best all-around A/T tire (out of the ones they tested).


Having said this, I've had great success with BFG A/Ts on my old trucks, and they did the test before the BFG A/T KO2 came out, so I'd consider them as well.

I got 42k on my Toyo RTs with regular rotations and proper air pressure. They said they are at 8/32 last time I had them rotated.

I have the Coopers, not really impressed with wet and icy traction.
I would add to your list;
Mickey Thompson Baja atz
Pro Comp At sport.
I had the Pro Comps some years ago, when they first came out. I was impressed by the tire. I listed the Mickeys because they are a highly rated tire and have a 45k warranty.

toyo M/T is my vote.

bought by 2007 with 35x12.5r17 toyo m/t on them, put 50K on the tires, sold the truck and they went another 2 years for the next owner.

have 315/75r18 toyo m/t on the 2016 and just as happy. they are quieter then the toyo a/ts on my friends 2011.
