i like the big o bigfoot xt. they work well in most conditions, not the best on solid ice, but what is without studs. there a decent price, last a long time, wear evenly and run well aired down. i like em so much i got 2 sets 31's and 33's.

i went with 315/75/16 MTR

other tire on my list was the bfg mud
in my experience all terrains with any width love to hydroplane and act like tobogans
the bfg doesnt have the centre stripe the mtr has for road driving = will not like hiway miles as much in regards to carcass flex building heat on longer trips
I have a long hatred of goodyear that I am hoping these tires defeat.
