I’ve had a ton of different tires. I had the Nitto ridge grapplers and they were good for the first 5k but after that they were poor at best. Toyo m/t, bfg, and a couple others I can’t think of were ok. I just put a set of M/T baja boss a/t on my gmc 1500 and so far they are amazing. Very good road handling when wet, quiet, we’re awesome in the snow, and great in mild off road. They are severe snow rated as well. Have 8500 miles on them so far and still loving them.
They are still doing awesome! I hunted Montana and Idaho last year and drove from south of Seattle and definitely encountered plenty of wintery conditions and they performed great. They have a pretty aggressive lug pattern but with the sipes they work. I also just recently moved from Washington to Pennsylvania so have probably put in another 8-9k miles for a total of 16-17k miles. They still have plenty of tread and handle really well. I’d buy them again for sure!Any long(er) term updates on these? REALLY liking them, would've bought them already if they were in a 285/75, but willing to do 295/70. Mostly curious about winter conditions, I always carry chains.
Have been happy with my wildpeaks, haven't taken them in real deal snow, but I may get another set before this winter and get them siped this time. F150 2014I appreciate the feedback. For me it's down to the Wildpeak AT3W in a 285/75-17, or the MT Baja ATs in the 295/70-17.
And make your own wrench for the cams with a longer handle so you can get them nice and tight. I am in the camp that prefers square link chains versus v-bar as well.I'd look for the tire with the best snow packed / ice performance....because you gotta get to the mountains and add chains to the plan. I have had most of the tires mentioned and slid sideways on off camber roads that had a spring or were packed with all of them.
Air down a tall and wide at if its just fluff, add chains and some air if its been driven on.
Always have chains and be ready to throw them....and buy chains with cams, thank me later for that tip.
