Haha thats a valid argument because in raleigh, we don't get a lot of snow so I wouldn't really know. I was just going off of the other categories.

Basically anything that is wet/gooey/thick, the BFG's will just get caked with it making them like racing slicks.

rics1997 I never wanted a A/T but when I was looking for tires the Falken Wild Peak A/T were highly recommended. It was a nice looking tire in the tire center when I was shown it.

Clutch127 If you want an AT, do not go with the BFG AT...horrible for basically anything off road. You can look at Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ, ProComp Xtreme All Terrain, and my favorite and definitely my next set, Goodyear Duratracs.

As for sizes, you can get these tires in the stock sizes if you dont want to go any bigger. But if you want to go bigger, you can fit 33's on the stock wheels, only things is that you would have to get wheels spacers...about 2.5"

Newb question about Tires for stock rims

I would like to get better all terrain tires for my stock 18" rims that will be good for highway, snow, and light off road traveling. I know that is kind of broad, but ant suggestions on tires, and sizes for the stock rims? Thanks
