x2 for hating the A/t's. They were not the best tire in the snow around here, or the sand, or the grass, or pretty much anything else.

For mine at least they are E load rated tires and they humm really really bad if I go over 70 mph the truck shakes. They were on the truck when I bought it so not much I could do. They are balanced good too I had them checked I am getting new tires maybe this week so we will see how that goes

Ive run at's and the mt's. The at's on my awd explorer were pretty damn nice. Had no problem drivng in deep sand on the OBX beaches...never even aired down and they were only 235/75/15's. Awesome in the snow and mild offroading i did do. The Mt's we ran on a stock 97f150 with the factory off road package..yeah they were noisy but as my ex-father in law said about them....if these tires dont get you were you need to go,then god didnt need you to be there. He used them for hunting and there were several trils he had been down that he could never get to before. Yeah they were expensive at the time but all his hunting buddies asked him where he got them after that hunting trip. Yeah a little vibration on the highway...but you expect that from a tire like this.

still searching for a good A/T or M/T..
now, i'm looking at Cooper Discoverer STT''s and pro comp.
if i can find new bfg TA K/O for under $175 each, i'd go with those, but they're always around $200.

You should go with the mastercraft courser mt's. You were looking at them before, right?
