Geolander or General Grabber.

C'mon.. you know you really want mudders..

I was very happy with my KO2 all terrains, would definitely buy them again. Snow rated, and of all the thousands of logging road miles i put on them only ever got one flat that stayed sealed with a rope plug till they wore out. Plus they have kick ass side wall lugs that will impress any tire kickers I tell you hwhat.

BFG AT’s always treated me well. 

I thought the side lugs look a bit goofy but the KO2’s were a better tire than the 1’s, particularly in snow.

I had a set of Nokian Rotiva AT tires. Not the plus they didn't make them at the time. They were a good tire, not great though, I expected better winter performance out of them. My Goodyear duratracs are better in the winter, but I drive a different truck now (Ford Sport track- Nokian vs Nissan Frontier -Duratrac). The Nokian were quieter, and way better in the rain. My next tire will probably be Falken Wildpeaks AT3W as I want a quieter tire, but I still want the winter rated tire so that narrows down the list for me.

Nitro TerraGrapplers or any other Grappler if you want more aggro tread.

So many options these days, I never know what to get. I put a set of P265/75R16 Hankook Dynapro ATMs on my Frontier back in 2015, pretty great all around. Should have went to an LT for peace of mind but no punctures or issues so I guess they are decent. Going to try the MT2 next if I can find a good price.

Not sure what Kumho might have to offer but they might have one. I had the sts or stx on my sierra. That barely saw dirt though but was a great tire.

The General Grabber ATs are decent for the price and they do a good job in the snow as well.

General tires are actually pretty good tires for the money.

Anyone have recommendations for HD truck tyres with a slight aggro thread pattern but still All-Weather or Triple Peak rates? 33 or 35s metric sizing works too. 

I’m thinking the Nitto Terra Grappler G2W or EXO Grappler AWT. Thoughts/suggestions?

😂 LMFAO 

What’re you running on the Frontier? 

Seriously; out of every tyre from every disciple I’ve seen, the BFG AT is the only tyre with that “tread” pattern 

I’ll probably need E Load tyres regardless. 

Saw some 35 Trail Grapplers on a F350 that looked sick. 

A mechanic I ride with was saying they can’t seem to balance the larger BFG ATs. One of the worst tyres in larger sizes. His words not mine. Tyre shop in town said ATs either delam in 10,000 km or time out. Again his observation from 1000s of tyre sales.

I run km2 Mudders on the fronty cause I'm 12.

the zeballos guy runs the km3s on his rubicon, and km2s on his raptor and f550.

I have had zero issues with my mudders, and only 2 minor punctures (one wasnt my fault some cunt jammed a screw in it in a parking lot, the other one was hauling too much beer to the campsite) with my C rated AT's that I clapped out on the xterra.
