Personally...i would advise you to buy tyres according to where you do most of your driving.

H/T rides the best and the quietest on the road and in wet condition. But works like crap in any slight mud or even wet grass..

M/T i wont recommend for any daily driver. If is a weekend rig or project vehicle...then it ok. But they howl on the blacktop and the traction on the road is terrible.

A/T as far as i see is a marketing gimmik.
They are basically H/T with a some more agressive lugs.
The are supposed to provide a balance between H/T and M/T but they actually dont. They still make a lot of noise and still dont work well in muddy conditions. But for novice trails etc they work well.

As with all tyres...good brands tend to cost more for a reason.

My experiences are mostly with cheap tyres.
There are good A/T and even some less agressive M/T that perform really well offroad and on the highways.


This is great advice.

In adding to this, highway terrain tyres tend to have longer lasting threadwear. Most people use at and never go in mud, they just like how at threads look. Had some bridgestone at, lasted 40,000km. Switch to ht and doing 75,000 strong. Align every 10,000kms. Another thing to look at on tyres are the little markings that say threadwear, temperature and traction.
A long threadlife tyre will have the threadwear number closer to 500. This means the rubber composition is harder and will not grind away quickly, but, will offer less grip in certain conditions and poorer ride quality in certain conditions.
Tyres with threadwear values closer to 0 tend to be softer, a lot of grip and soft ride, but wear quicker, and make noise.
The temperature and traction values are either a b or c, self explanatory. So in choosing the tyre, take all these into consideration and balance the rating on the tyre to what you want. I choose highway terrain tyres, temp A or B, traction A, with threadwear between 400 and 500. Never had problems. Odd skid in second gear on wet roads when pressing but never hydroplanes, skate on wet road braking or understeer when cornering.

The above information isn't entirely accurate. Treadwear values are not comparable between different manufacturer's tyres. A 600 treadwear Michelin could be equivalent to 400 from bridgestone.

It not so much the spend but what will work, the tractor type work well, but it wears out quickly, the peg type, not so road worthy and there is a nice looking one, that works well on road and mud, but it is 15.5" in diameter.

So for me what is a good one?

You can do a custom winch plate behind the bumper to keep it neat
