Default Aggressive AT tyres

So I've got these AMP A/T tyres recently, happy with offroad performance, but now I can afford something from a more reputable brand.



So looking for something aggressive but with decent everyday/wet performance.

S/T Maxx - the biggest OD and good recommendations, but they're never on sale here
STT Pro - the same
Wrangler Duratrac - can't find in LT construction here
KENDA KLEVER RT - don't know much but not cheap stuff
Nitto Terra grappler - can't find my size anymore, still interesting
good old T/A KO2
Falken AT3W

The Maxxis AT980 is LT, has an aggressive tread, and sticks very well to the road. I have them in 265/65R17. I would rather a bigger profile, the biggest that tyre goes to is 275/65R17. They do make a bit of road noise, but I would suspect that is true of any aggressive tyre

I ran the Toyo Open Country ATII light truck variant on my old challenger and they stuck like glue on wet tarmac or dirt. Once the duelers that came with my Pajero wear out l'll be changing those to a set of the Toyo's as well. No noticeable road noise even though it was quite an aggressive tread

I've got the Falken AT3W, a bit cheaper than the BFG's I had and quieter for now. Similar traction however they are not constructed as heavy, unless you are in the sharp rock territory of central South Island its not likey to be an issue. I am and am happy to take the risk.

Yokohama have recently released a 50/50 style AT (AT-X) also.
They have my interest, similar tread pattern as the Falken ATW's, but with a 3 ply sidewall.

Als similar tread pattern to BFG KO2 so water drainage would be similar. I found the BFG to not drain deep water away very well, and would get a bit of aquaplaning.

Tread depth is 13.5mm whereas ST Maxx is 14.7mm so the X-AT has only 90% of usable tread depth to the ST Maxx. Tread depth on a BFG AT KO2 is only 11.9mm, even less.
Tread width is reasonable for a LT265/70R17 at 218mm only just slightly short of the ST Maxx 220mm tread width. I ca not find the tread width specification for the BFG.

I run the Wrangler Duratrac in LT. It has about 14.3mm tread depth from factory. They were comparatively cheap and very grippy, but they will make a bit of road noise if they aren't rotated.

Need to be careful with which DuraTrac you buy as they are available in several loading's for many sizes.

For example the LT265/70R17 is available as a ;
C rated 6 ply Light Truck construction 112 Load Index Max Cold Inflation Pressure 50 PSI
and also a
E Rated 10 Ply Light Truck construction 121 Load Index Max Cold Inflation Pressure 80 psi.

Both tares look identical except for the sidewall specifications and the 10 ply is a heavier tyre and a much stronger and robust tyre in tread, shoulder and sidewall construction.

Tyre's ain't Tyre's!
