OEM replacement tires?

Our ‘13 auto 4wd has got 31xxx miles and I’m considering new tires before the snow flies
Use is local light hauling,400 mile round trips to the lake and most importantly as a
Snow hammer to ensure that us two oldies can get out of our 250ft
driveway in the worst upstate NY has to offer
No complaints about the OEM Bstone Duelers except they may not offer enough bite this winter
Recommendations appreciated

Re: OEM replacement tires?

Well you could just get your self a good All Terrain tire. They handle snow easily they run quiet on the Highway. You can get them in original size which is 265/70/17. Hope that helps

Toyo or Cooper. And spend the extra money to have them siped.

+1 on the Duratracs for a snow rated AT tire. Others are BFG AT KO2s, Falken AT3W.

If you really want to get out, you might look for some Nokian Hakkapalita winter tires with studs (assuming NY allows studded tires). See here:

https://www.nokiantires.com/tires/su.../winter-tires/


General Tires also offers some studded winter snow tires

I would shop at Discount Tire (a sponsor here and often have deals) and TireRack

I would love to have a 13 with 31000 miles. That's awesome. My 07 has 93,000, which is not bad for as old as it is.

There are many good suggestions already that are solid tires for your needs one other to add to the mix is the Yokohama Geolandar G015. It is also snowflake approved.

Picking the right tire for you depends on many factors such as where and how you drive and what you are looking for in your next tire. Please let us know if we can help.
