Just The Tip
I think they’d be ok in snow. I think the right tread is not the best for mud. Take a look at discount tire at the Falken Wild Peak AT’s.


I had a job and a piece of lad. My wife was my best friend, but I traded it for cocaine and a whore.

After looking for a new set and having heart failure at name brands cost of $1400-$1800 for a set of 4 I went online searching for a tire that fit my needs without being overpriced.
Centennial tire, 265/70/17D to replace the junk street tires on my f150 that I kept having flats on as they are "weak" for off roading or running 2 tracks and the ranches I drive on.
I have 6000 miles on them and they are just perfect for what I do, mud & snow fling out of them, like any other tire on ice you need to be more careful.
Bought 5 tires, paid $730 shipped to my house & then $110 for mounting & lifetime balance, had them within 4 days.

I’m running a set of the Falken AT3W’s on my 17 Tundra TRD Pro and have been very happy with them in their first 15k of use. They are quiet and have handled well in the rain, snow and even the mud that I’ve been in at deer camp. I’m running E rated tires and a slightly larger size than stock. I lost about 2 mpg from the stock Michelin’s but fully expected that due to the increased weight and more aggressive tread pattern. I do tow often but not heavy(3-4K) and the 10 plys do make a noticeable difference when towing(for the better).

I'm TOTALLY sold on the original BFG Mud Terrain KM.........not the new junk KM2. Only comes in 255/75/17. But that's a fit on any half ton that'll wear 17" rims. Not overly loud......but if you wanna go ANY FREAKIN PLACE, the hum is a small price to pay.

I ran those for a while on my taco, back when they were $100 per tire after the rubicon started running them. Excellent tire. Bigly.

Yeah.........sadly they ain't 100 bucks anymore. But, STILL about the best go-any where, long-wearing tire going.

I like BFG's KO2 on my Tacoma, you can run them low in mud or snow or everage terrain I usually run them 25-29 for a soft ride, had them for 3 seasons and still 50% life, lots of logging roads in Western BC

A soft tread is good traction on ice, and snow, but will wear faster. I am looking at the Goodyear Adventure tire. I

We have had about 30 inches of snow here in the last 3 weeks (which is quite a bit for our area) and what cracks me up is the guys with 4wd that are spinning about without the 4wd engaged. These are probably some of the same guys you hear bitching about one brand of tire or the other.

These are an excellent tire for most guys that spend 95% of their time on pavement. Excellent wet traction, really long life, very quiet, very stable under heavy loads. I had them on my F150, we pull a 9k 5th wheel with it quite a bit, I'm really missing the excellent towing manners those Hankooks had. I replaced mine at 65k for some more aggressive tires, won't be doing that again.

What did you put on that was more aggressive?

Have a set of Kumho Road Venture AT51s on my F150, They are great in mud and snow. Not going to be a high mileage tire though

I have the same tires on my 4x4 2014 eco boost super crew cab and 1 1/2 inch leveling kit. I only have about 3-4000 miles on them. They are my spring/summer tires. They do fine for most conditions but they do not compare to a true winter tire. I use Cooper M/S studded tire for winter (Alaska) 6 months of winter every year.
If I knew how to post pictures I would.

I haven't used them yet but I've heard great things about the Firestone Destination MT's. Supposed to be great in snow and mud. Better than most MT's on ice. And wear very well.
