DD tires for a New Englander?

I've had my 99 wrangler for a little over 3 years. I put new all-season tires on two years ago, and I'm already thinking about new tires...

I'm from New England (southern maine/nh boarder). I don't go off-roading, and my jeep is mostly just a DD, although I do enjoy going out and playing in the snow when we get a good storm. This winter is supposed to be particularly bad, and I'm not sure my tires are going to cut it considering one keeps going flat and they are already getting semi worn.

I'm thinking about putting on some light truck A/T since the tires I have right now are just normal all season passenger car tires.

I don't care too much about how the tires look, I just need tires that are going to last me longer than the ones I have now, and that will handle well in rain and snow. Any suggestions?

I'd give the Cooper Discoverer AT3 a good look. It's currently the #1 AT tire on the market according to Consumer Reports. I'm running them on my 4Runner and I must say...they are one of the best if not the best I've ever used to date.

~Lots of modded Jeeps and a Toyota 4Runner~
My favorite quote from the press release.. sad but true: "Chrysler claims its products, especially the Jeeps, can handle all sorts of terrible conditions, churning through muddy swamps, climbing mountains, and crossing rivers. Turns out they cannot even handle a car wash."

I absolutely LOVE driving in the snow over here in Vermont. And I swear by Nokian Hakkaapellitta studded snow tires. I only mount them for winter driving, and like I tell others: "They grip like a cat that won't let go". Check them out. I think Vianoor tire store has them....they are a chain tire store located all over. They're not expensive, and they are well worth checking out.

I'm from Connecticut and my Duratracs have never let me down. My TJ is my DD and I love my Duratracs. They grip well in the winter (in 4WD lol) and I never had a nervous moment with them even in the middle of a blizzard. I know they aren't AT's but just throwing it out there!
