Michelin LTX A/T 2
Providing some of the highest performance and load hauling capabilities in its class, the
Michelin AT 2 is an excellent pick for truck and SUV owners. It starts with its tougher tread
compound that resists cuts and punctures, and carries over into its dependable traction and
handling. The ride is more comfortable than you might expect, and noise is minimal for an AT tire.
There's also a 60,000 mile tread warranty included on this model.
Designed to deliver serious on and off-road performance, the A/T3 from Cooper has a lot going
for it. Grip on dry, wet or snow covered road surfaces is outstanding on this tire. Off-road
traction on a variety of terrains is impressive due to the tread compound and 5-rib design. This
tire cleans itself of mud and gravel very well. With a lower price point than many of its
competitors and Cooper's 55,000 mile warranty, the AT3 is a solid option in new tires.
Falken's Wild Peak AT tire is another good option for anyone looking for a load E model.
Traction on and off-road is among the better tires in this class, while the ride is very
comfortable and well-mannered for an all-terrain tire. It comes at a lower price, making it an
affordable choice for the budget-minded driver. There's also a 50,000 mile tread guarantee as
With dependable traction both on and off-road, the ATS from Yokohama gives you just about all
you could ask for from an all-terrain tire. We like the dry and wet traction this tire provides.
The steering is responsive, and the ride is comfortable on all types of road surfaces. With load
range E sizes available from 15-20 inches and a 50,000 mile warranty to go along with its more
affordable price, the ATS is a popular choice.
The A/T Revo 2 is arguably Bridgestone's best performing all-terrain tire in their lineup. You
can expect to find excellent traction on all types of terrain, as well as a quicker steering
response and solid handling. It hauls heavier loads with ease, and the tougher tread compound
delivers exceptional performance. There's also a 50,000 mile tread warranty included.
For a highway tire that also is available in load range E sizes, the General Grabber HTS makes
for a good choice in new tires. This model delivers very good dry and wet traction to go with more
precise steering and solid cornering grip. General uses their unique Duragen technology in the
tread to give this model increased durability and better overall ride comfort.
Pirelli makes the list with its tough Scorpion ATR tire. Performance is impressive both on or
off-road in lighter terrains. The tire's silica tread compound and symmetric tread design provide
solid and sure traction on dry or wet pavement. Its ride is smooth and comfortable, and treadlife
is very good as well. Pirelli backs it for 40,000 miles.
The LTX MS2 from Michelin may be at the top of heavy hauling class of new tires. With
outstanding traction and handling on any type of road surface or off-road terrain, this tire simply
continues to amaze. The ride is like you would expect from Michelin, smooth and comfortable. Even
better is the long lasting tread life that is backed for 70,000 miles. You would be hard pressed to
find real issues with this model.
When most people think of Nitto they think of high performance car tires, but the Terra Grappler
AT is one of their best truck tires in the company's lineup. With quick steering response and good
feel, the Grappler delivers outstanding traction on all types of surfaces. Despite its rugged
appearance, this tire rides comfortably and doesn't leave you feeling like you're riding in a rock
For price and performance it's hard to argue that there's a better tire available today than the
ATM RF10 from Hankook. This tire simply delivers high performance traction and handling at a cost
that is much less than other competitor tires. They are very quiet on the highway, and the tread is
longer lasting than you might expect. Hankook backs it up with a 50,000 mile warranty.
