Hello folks!  Extremely new here and wanted to ask about upgrading the tires on my 2013 Nissan Pro-4x to an E rated; 10 ply tire.  I've added airbags, leaf springs and rear shocks to upgrade the suspension on the truck to handle the added weight ~1,1200 lbs.  I'm now shopping for a 10ply tire for my truck that currently runs a 265/75 R16 size tire.  I want this tire to be rated for driving in the snow, but I want it to also be a year around tire that's not studded.  Any Suggestions on a specific brand that you like would be great!  

 

Sincerely,

 

Donny Addison

BFG K02 has never let me down. You'll find lots of people on here who swear by them, myself included.

 

I've driven them in every type of terrain and they're great. Low road noise, long life, and fantastic in the snow!

Donny, first… welcome to WTW,

 

I’m a fan of Cooper Discoverer AT3 tires, about 5 years back, an evaluation of top brands was performed by the good folks on Expedition Portal.  The Discoverer was rated best all around.   Depending on your load, I’m not certain you need an E rated tire.  A conversation with a good tire shop might be a good move.  The heavier tire does impact your mileage.  Just my 2¢.

I am currently on my my second set of Cooper tires and have been quite pleased.

Careful with those critiques. What works good on one vehicle may not work well one another. Ex. My Jeep loves the BFG MT's. My truck not so much. I do like the Coopers but this year I'm trying out the Falken AT's and so far I'd rate them comparable to the Coopers.

The best deal I've found locally is the Auttro Trailblazer.  Any thoughts on that tire?

 

I'm going to keep running my current tires for the next month or two.  Still in good shape and we don't plan on doing any major off road driving for a bit.  Mostly driving on highways and forest roads.  

 

Thanks for the input everyone.  I will post of pics of our setup soon!

I run E rated tires just for extra bit of load and protection. Have used Michelin AT2 (another friend with Tundra and Cougar pulling a trailer has used these for over 500,000 miles on three trucks with no issues). Currently running Coppers on a 21 tundra with camper (only 4K miles so far) and have Les Schwab Mazama's on the 05 Tundra with a camper.  Have also used Toyos and KO2. The KO2s were definitely noisier than others in our experience. The Michelin tires definitely got the most miles wear wise.

I've run both Falken Wildpeaks and Toyo A/T IIIs. Both are good. Nothing is as good in the snow as a dedicated snow like a Nokian Hakkapeliitta though. It's not worth changing anymore though.

Ask 10 people, get 10 different opinions. All of the above are probably good choices. Different rigs do behave differently with the same tire, so there's that to consider. We run KO2, liked them well enough that we went for a second set. For snow just be sure they have the 3 Peak rating.

 

Here's another review on 9 popular tires.
