Check out http://www.thetirerack.com for discount prices on all of those I think. Good place to start. I go over there to check reviews and stuff and they have quite a bit of info on tires in general.

The At's are better in the snow then the Mt's I am not speaking from experience, but BFG's website ranks the AT's as a 10 for winter traction and the Mt's a 7

That's shallow snow. In really deep snow the M/T's are often better. It really depends on the snow. Deep wet snow M/T's work a lot like they do in mud. But how often do you see that on the street? Most time you need traction in a thin sheet of snow and the A/T's are better, but still not as good a a purpose designed snow tire.

Me too. And if I had to drive OFFROAD in deep, thick snow I'd want the M/T -- particularly a siped M/T like the Trxus M/T.

For street depth snow I'd prefer an A/T.

I say go with BFG, know people with both the other brands you are considering you will be pleased with the BFG. Traction and also wear is considerably better.

550 is what i got quoted for some bfg 30s


unless your MT's are sciped the a/ts will perform 100x better... if you ever look at snow tires youll notice that thye have as many scipes as they can fit on each lug....
