Which 35x12.5x15 AT Tire ?

hallo,

i want to order my new 35" tires this weekend.

the tire must have a good on road handling, i use my TJ as my daily driver. it rains here very often and in the winter there is sometimes snow or ice.
actually i have yokohama geolandat ATs, i love them, but they aren´t available in 35".
i also drive off the road. most of the time there´s mud or sand, never rocks.

which one is the best for me?
please consider that i need a good/acceptable onroad handling when it´s raning or in the winter.

here in germany i can choose one of the following tires.

cooper discoverer S/T:


general tire grabber AT2:


mastercraft courser C/T:


toyo open country A/T:


bfg all terrain T/A:

I just got some BFG in 33's though. Not really the greatest in the sloppy stuff.

I agree 100%, but for the best compromise of on road - off road, in my opinion they are hard to beat.

is there a big difference between a AT and a MT tire on the road?

i like the look of the goodyear MT/Rs and cooper STTs.

my goodyr MT/R's are loud above 50, but besides that they've done great, however it has not reained yet so i dont know how they will do, i assume they will be good in snow as well, but i will know within the next few months

M/T's will whine at any kind of speed. Will most likely handle considerably worse in rainy conditions, need to be rotated very regularly in order to get good, even road wear, and will still last substancially less miles then an A/T.

if there is only a small difference between ATs and MTs on the road when it rains it will be ok for me.
my exhaust is that loud, i wouldn´t hear the tires.

i think i´ll buy the goodyear MT´Rs. friend has them on his XJ and drives with them in the winter without problems.

they look very good in my opinion.

I had BFG A/T on my Jeep Cherokee. they were the best. It had good year wrangler RT/S they were the worst possible tire. I like the BFG A/T so much I put it on my ford escape and it only has 2wd. Wife loves the feel and the compfort of the tire while driving the highway. I feel secure knowing it performs well in rain and snow which we get plenty of here in the mountains in NY The general grabber, that was the oem tire on my ford they were ok but seemed weak or spongy not like a good solid tire. my 2 cents
