Those look pretty good but perhaps you should
check out Bridgestone Revo's
Slightly more aggressive. I'm not a huge fan on dunlops.
The one set of car tires.. were pretty bad. Thats not
to say those you listed are bad.
I also owned toyo open country a/t's and they were very good in the
snow also they were inexpensive and balanced with VERY little weight
about 1/4 or less than my current tires.

Toyos should be ~~100$ ea installed.
revos probably 120$ or so in your size

If you want more tread get Load Range C as most tires
are some where around 12-13/32 for P-metric
but the LT size is around 17-18/32 much more useable tread life.
Load range C are normally about 8$ more per tire.
I would avoid load range D or E as they give a rough stiff ride.

Copy from their site
With its powerful grip and smooth ride, the Dueler A/T REVO with UNI-T AQ II is the light truck and SUV tire that's equipped for the best and worst of driving conditions. Thanks to the advanced technology, it lets you handle the wet, the dry, even the snow, as the tire wears. With its aggressive tread and sidewall design, even the look of the Dueler A/T REVO grabs attention wherever you go.

Sizes and Specifications Print Product Sheet
Innovative Tire Design - A Comprehensive Tire Design Method
This method improves handling in wet or dry conditions and reduces irregular treadwear by combining an ideal tread design, casing shape, materials and construction.
Innovative Roundness - Rounder Is Better
Rounder overall tire shape provides better balance for wet or dry handling.
Innovative Compound
Increases wear resistance by reformulating the compound for strengthing rubber.
Super EPC
Super EPC consists of advanced technologies, an Anti-Hardening Resin and Link Stabilizing Agent, to help counteract the effects of heat so tires have the flexibility needed for wet performance as they wear.
Dual Layer Tread
As the tire wears, more of the inner tread is exposed so the tire continues to have excellent grip in wet conditions.
Hydro Evacuation Surface (H.E.S.)
H.E.S. more efficiently channels water away from the tread to reduce the risk of hydroplaning.
Consistent Surface Contact (C.S.C)
C.S.C., a pattern of tread blocks designed for uniform contact pressure, improves dry and wet handling, reduces irregular wear, and results in better ride comfort.
Super EPO
Super EPO goes beyond EPO in providing wet handling as the tire wears. The interactive elements are Super EPC and an enhanced version of Dual Layer Tread.
Spiral Wrap
Spiral Wrap is a continuous nylon wrap that encircles the whole tire, helping the tire hold its original shape to improve high speed capability.

They suck, stay far away from them! I hate good years period, but these are by far the worst tire ever produced. I have a set on my explorer, and if you like as much traction an weiner dog on a laminate floor then go for it, but expect them to seperate at about 15K miles, happened to me three times. If I had some extra money to blow right now I would get these brand new tire off this rig, but I don't so I jsut keep my spare inflated.

They come stock on rangers too, at least since the firestone fiasco:




^ best picture I could find of a stock ranger with Rt/s' but the Vista ble FX4 I looked at in the dealership had Rt/s's too.

i used to hate goodyears too, with a passion, they sucked. but an exception is the MT/Rs, ive also heard the A/TS are a good tire as well

if you havnt tried them all you cant really say goodyears in general suck, beacause not all of them do. you get what you pay for.
