    All-terrain Tires

    Hi guys! I am looking for a set of all-terrain tires for my 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. I am currently checking out Toyo Tires' Open Country AT2. Should I go for it?

    I have run Mickey Thompson ATZP3, Goodyear Duratracs and now BFGoodrich KO2s. I like the KO2s for the better street performance, but I felt the Duratracs did a little better off road and in the icy snow. Since the JK is not a daily any more, I move up to something more aggressive like a Nitto Trail Grappler.

    I have both duratracs and BFG KO2 both in 35". I originally bought the duratracs to run in the summer when I bought new rims but did drive them when the roads got bad before I changed them over to my original tire/rim to run in the worst of winter. When my original tires (some old falken wildpeaks which are terrible for the winter) wore out I found a killer deal on ko2 and bought them to run in the winter and have had great results with them as well. My only complaint with the ko2 is balancing, one of my tires gives me fits when it is in the front and shakes my steering wheel around 50mph. I have taken it back a couple times for a re-balance but they tell me it is showing okay. The suggested I try tire balls but at this point I am just running in on the rear. My duratracs have never given me any problems.

    I've run the BFG AT T/A KO's (not the new KO2) and the Nitto Trail Grapplers on my daily driver. The street manners of the KO were great. The off-road performance of the trail grapplers is much better. I'm getting ready to replace my 6 year old trail grapplers but am conflicted on whether to go with the trail grapplers again or go with the KO2's. I've never considered the Open Country AT2. They might be worth considering.

    BFG K02 is my top choice. These tires handle well and offer good grip in the snow, mud and dirt.
