M/T's or A/T's???

so im gonna be ordering a set of tires tonight and they have (what i think) are some great deals going on. i can get 4 Pro Comp M/T's shipped for $550 or 4 Pro Comp A/T's for $500 shipped. now i dont plan on doing much trail riding or anything, but i do live in new england and the snow is gonna be here soon. i drive about 6 miles a day to work and back and pretty much thats the extent of my driving. i go anywhere from about 12 miles a day, to about 30. usually nothing more. i was wondering which tires you prefer? and these are 33x12.5x15's

With as few miles as you travel I'd definitely go with the MT's since the only drawback on the MT's is slightly less tread life. But that's not stopping me from buying another set of those exact MT's. Not sure about AT v MT in snow, we don't have that problem here.

I believe that the AT's are better in the snow. If you don't go off roading that much then why get the MTs?

I have MTs, but if I were in your situation I'd have gone with ATs for the snow and the lack of wheeling. They'll last longer and the MTs are loud, especially as they wear. I love 'em, but not everybody thinks that hum is so entertaining

Like they said, the AT's have better life (and have a 50K warranty on 'em), but the MT's have better traction in non-onroad situations.

Of course, if its a question, you could go a bit hybrid and get the Xtreme All-Terrains (40K warranty). Had a set on my truck and had no problems w/ 'em.
