According to the following conditions what would you think will be the best tire option:
- Wnter driving
- Snow handling
- Ice handling
- City/Highway/Trails 60%/30%/10%
- Trails are fire roads covered with sand, dirt and snow.

Tires:

Good Year Silent Armor 285/70


Mickey Thompson ATZ Radial 305/65


Nitto Terra Grapler 305/70


ProComp All Terrain 285/70


Toyo Open Country AT 285/75

Alex, I swear by the Toyo Open Country AT's. Kari has the LT265's on her Pathfinder! Love them. Had them (different set)on my old Pathfinder before I wrote it off. Would buy them again in a heart beat and they will far outlast the Mickey Thompsons. You can take my word since we travel in similar conditions. I alway threaten swapping them onto the FJ but she would cut me off.

Also the lugs are farther than they appear in your pic and do well in light mud. Although haven't tried them in anything to serious.

the terras are good. I had them (35s) on my old f150. Nice tire.

I have Revos on my FJ. Great all around tire. Unstoppable in the snow and good in the dirt.

Great. That's what I want to hear - real persons opinions on their experience.

I like Toyos as well Bodegas, but didn't had any experience with them. Does anyone knows if 285/75 is out yet? I can't find this size anywhere.

Seems you've narrowed it down to these choices, but i'd also consider the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revos...I couldn't be happier with these tires.

Something else to consider.

Nitto and Toyo look so similar...

Uphill loves his Nittos.

I would have voted for the Procomp Extreme AT's. But they were not listed. What gives with only listing just a few tires. If your gonna do a poll do all the tires.:)

I've narrowed the search to those tires due to several issues.

ProComp Xtreme AT doesn't work great on packed snow and ice.

Uhm, no BFG's huh? I've run BFG AT KO's for
years and LOVE them ;)
Too heavy and too stiff for my aplication.

I second the Revo vote!
Had them, want something else.
