For the off-roading enthusiasts here, what are your go to tires that you want to put on your R1S or R1T?
Something that could handle snow would be a requirement on my list for sure.It depends is the best answer. As tsalvin30 noted BFG AT KO2s are quite the go-to here in the PNW as well, which is what I run on my Tacoma. I also like the Duratracs which are more of a modern tred style vs the BFG AT (albeit KO2s a bit newer style than original KOs). The main advantage for us in Oregon with the BFG AT KO2s or Duratracs is they carry the snowflake symbol, which means you don't have to chain-up going through the pass snow zones since they qualify as a "traction tire". I've ran the Toyo Open Country ATs which are an excellent tire, however they don't carry the snowflake symbol so you still may be asked to chain up, although in 7 years of running them on my Grand Cherokee I was never asked to nor needed to.
If you doing more mud/sand I like the BFG MTs or Goodyear MT/Rs are both solid.
Again, just depends
That is definitely good to know. How long did the old set last for you @Drek2U?My Jeep has had BFG AT KOs on it since 2003, a new set goes on Wednesday. I have been using them year round forever here in Canada. I have managed up to 2 feet of snow at times with it, so they handle snow OK.
I look forward to watching that video!Well, they are being replaced due to old age rather than wear. Just realized a couple weeks ago that they are dangerously old (original set) but I have probably put 80,000 kilometers on them over the years and they still have plenty of tread.
Now I would expect the wear to be very different on a heavier vehicle since I have 32X11.50X15 on the Jeep which only weighs 3200lbs or so, but traction would be much the same. I have a video coming from a friend that shows him playing in the snow with his vehicle in about 1.5 feet that I will post once he has uploaded it.
