Which tires Long Islanders?

I'd like to hear from those dealing with the same weather as me year round. My JKU is a daily driver and completely stock (though I'm more than willing to replace the OEM 17" wheels with other 17" wheels). The only offroading I foresee are grass, gravel or dirt parking lots.
What are you running?
Thanks in advance!

For a smoother ride the Cooper AT/3 might be nice and they are running a rebate right now Cooper Tire & Rubber Company - Discoverer A/T3™

I have some Cooper Discoverer ST Maxx tires, only have a few hundred miles so no real feedback. It seems everyone loves the Goodyear Duratrac tires.

I've been thinking of the Cooper Discoverer A/TW (aka XT4) for the enhanced winter/ice abilities. They look similar to the Firestone Destination A/T. The GY Duratracs are my fallback plan. I just think they might be too much of an off road design for a LI daily driver. Both are nice and light at 38-40 pounds at the OEM 255/75R17 size.

Did you buy locally or online?

I purchased locally in Smithtown. It went back and forth many times between the AT/3 and the ST MAXX, if my jeep was a daily driver I would have gone for the AT/3.

Probably could have saved a few dollars purchasing online, but I like to keep the money on the island if possible.

Cooper rates their Discoverer A/TW as being better in winter than the A/T3. All things considered (size availability, weight, function in all sorts of situations) it's come down to Cooper A/TW and the GY Duratacs. I'm leaning towards the Coopers on the hunch they'd be better on pavement.

Pending info on actual wheel weight it's between Level 8 Tracker, ATX ax199 and Black Rock Yuma 908B
