I am at the "gotta get tires" stage. I have had two sets of Cooper AT3 's and like them. I find they do well on snow and rain.

I don't do a lot of mud other than dirt roads where we live and northern gravel roads  Noise ..... the first set (40K) were quiet. Different truck.....This latest set (40 K) developed a scallop on there inside...even though I rotated them and maintained good air pressure.... I think when I added the leaf pack the alignment was not done properly. I have decided to get them again and do another alignment same day!

I ran the KO2s on my 1/2-ton Dodge and found that the MPGs were reduced (not by much) but also the treadlife suffered. Didn’t reach 30k. My Chevy had the Kumhos mentioned in the article when I bought it. The driver's front suffered tread separation pretty quickly. That may have been due to the fact that the truck sat around with a large Lance camper for quite awhile. I ended up going with Toyo AT2s and am happy with them. But yes, a reduction in MPGs. I just don’t know whether the added tall camper shell or the tires or both are responsible for that reduction.

I think you bring up an excellent point. Most any tire, when you reduce tire pressure, will do better offroad. Depending on your travels, will a less aggressive AT suffice? YMMV.
