    When you ask something to do everything great you get mediocre at all things:)
    A great snow/ice tire wont wear well.

    i have a set of maxxis bighorns they have there pros and cons like every tire.

    pros

    excelent mud/deep snow traction

    cons

    loud
    dont wear very well (i am guessing i will get 25,000 out of this set).
    they are horrible on glare ice (i went out ive fishing the other weekend and i got stuck in 6'' of snow because the tires were on glare ice i was pissed).

    overall i doubt i will buy these tires again i just dont go offroad enough to justify the noise and bad treadwear and harsh ride. my next set will be either pro comp all terrians or bfg all terrains.

    Got 65k out of my last set of BFG Rugged Trails- Just put a new set on. Solid all around tires.

    I run Nitto Terra Grapplers and love 'em but your not going to get 40K+ out of 'em. Smooth ride, quiet, and great traction. Only down side I see is tread life. If you have the $$$$$ BFG A/T KO's are the way to go. Great all around tire for summer/winter. JM .02.

    Nitto's. Bought my first set this winter. LOVE EM. Well I hate having to work at doing donuts when screwing off now but I guess thats what there supposed to prevent then.

    BFG's are really nice all around. They have good grip in all conditions, and will wear for a long time. BTW, those procomp mud terrains will plug up. They do not self clean very well. My $0.02

    Does anybody have these?

    I have run these for 4 years now. A friend gave them to me because he said they were "noisy", it's
    very slight and doesn't bother me. Treadwear is great but I only use them in the winter. And the past 2 winters have been very light on snow. But they still didn't wear.

    Bridgestone Dueller REVO AT's, awesome tires, if you can handle buying them every 20k miles. If they have another $100 rebate on 4 when I need them again, i'll get em

    Not a personal attack but advise. If you're going to start a poll thread like this you should search what members here have recommended for tires. It's been posted over and over and some of the most popular tires were not even mentioned.
