Currently looking to replace my BFG M/Ts as they have become close to slicks at this point, looking at possibly switching over to the BFG A/Ts in the same size (33/12.5/15) to save some money. The jeep used to be my DD but now not as much as my civic is much more fuel efficient so it doesnt get driven as much, I do go offroading, not as much as i'd like to but theres not a whole of options around here so its usually just mud and small water crossings no rock crawling or anything extreme. The jeep will be driven alot more in the winter so something decent in snowy conditions is desirable, I think tht basically covers it, Also tire tread life is important too, looking for something that will last. I will keeping my spare M/T since its essentially brand new, no need to buy 5 tires.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Subscribed to this. I am literally looking for people's views on this same subject. Have you looked at the cooper st all terrain. This is the one I'm heavily looking into at the moment. From what I have found, the bfg at is a great tire and will be the one I "settle" on if I can't find what I am really looking for or the ones I want, just are too godawful expensive.
Good luck!

Duratracs hands down, especially since you mentioned snow. They rock in the snow. Probably the best DD A/T tire on the market. Not bad offroad either.
Absolutely agree with this. Ran them for a long time. Extremely capable off road tire, but quiet and decent handling on the road too.

Best price I found for them was ~200 from discount tire direct online, for the 33x12.5x15 size. Comes with a warranty too!

I got my Duratracs from Discount Tire during a special promotional time. Got a rebate on them. Plus free lifetime rotations/balances.

Just got a quote on Friday for 33x12.5x15 duratrac from my local Goodyear shop for $165 a tire mounted and balanced plus tax. He said if I bought on the spot , he would go 5 bucks lower per tire.

I am running Toyo Open Country at2's and they rock in the snow and ice. I have had mine in everything except mud and they have surpassed my expectations. They are wearing very well and extremely smooth and quiet on the highway. I do a lot of snow shoeing and X-C skiing in the back country and I am amazed at how they do in the snow and ice.

I have 33s Cepeks. There awesome on my daily driver and great in snow and off road. Although I did pay a lot for them. 250$ a tire.

~$200/Tire seems to be the norm, Got a quote from Sam's club for $200/Tire - $80 MIR from Goodyear, but I don't believe that included mounting or balancing...going to shop around tomorrow for some more prices, I'd love to get it under or close to $200/tire mounted and balanced, $165 seems like a hell of a deal.

Hmm I'll have to check those out as well, my gas mileage has been terrible, gotta change the filter and plugs and go from there.

So far I got quotes for town fair tire:983, tires international 973, and Goodyear 963. Town fair matches + 5% so that should bring it down a bit, any other options? Those are all OTD mount balance and alignment.

Those quotes were for GY Duratracs, mounted, balanced, and aligned, The $963 PM +5% off takes me to around $915 I believe. One place said they were being discontinued?

I liked my BFG ATs. They were great all around. I absolutely love the Mickey Thompson MTZs I have now, but they're probably too aggressive for what you're looking for. I also like the Cooper at/3s and STs a bit.

Looks Like I'm leaning towards the Duratracs, my roomate works at a dealer so he can get them in 33's for $175ea, so about $750 for the tires then a local JY will mount/balance for $15/ea then just gotta get them aligned. Its too bad, GY just had a rebate program end in July anyone know if they have another in the fall usually?
