No idea how those wear. What I've seen, the Mickey ATZ and MTZ hold up pretty well on the pavement, though IME the Hankook ATMs are the best all around tire I've dealt with, and my T sees it ALL. Clearing the 35's depends fully on your setup. What are you running now? it's impossible to give good advice with so little info

Do not get grabbers. Don't do it. They are loud and wear horribly.

Toyo at2's in the "extreme" version are pretty aggressive. Their bigger sizes are "extreme" like 325/60r18


I have about 60k on my toyo at2's

Not sure if they are aggressive enough looking for you, but I have been happy with Nitto Terra Grapplers. They have done well in mud and snow.

I have 40k miles on a set, mixed driving, but mostly roadway. They still have another 5-10k left on them.

looking for a good "aggressive" tire but for HWy use also

Falken wild peaks. Got over 60k on my last set. Good off road and quiet on road

I second this.

Anything other than what the red labels are designed for (desert terrain), leaves the table open for discussion. Personal preference would be toyo's, BFG's, or the new Falken A/T. I think the Toyo R/T's are one of the best looking tires out and close second would be the KO2's. Falkens sound promising and are much cheaper plus come with a warranty.

I bought a set of Cooper Discoverer ATP tires and haven't had any issues with them. Pretty quiet on the road and balance well.

I too am against the General Grabbers, ive had 2 sets and they had horrible road manners, loud, heavier than SH*T, and even had problems hooking up in the dirt. I have several friends in the racing industry with the same complaints.

I slapped a set of Terra Grapples G2's on last August and couldn't be happier. The ride is smooth and they handle great.

I don't have any experience with that tire but looking at the lugs they have ZERO siping (squiggly lines). I can't imagine these things would have any wet traction on the road.

just a fair warning, my open country at2's are HORRIBLE on hard rocky trails, they chunk out soo badly. Maybe its because i don't air down enough. But still.


however, i destroyed the sidewall on one and it didn't blow out so theres that lol.

Never had any issues out of mine. Great tire. Got 66k out of my first set. Gotta keep them rotated every 6k

definitely in the camp with the KO2s - had mine in a bunch of different terrain and perform well, especially on the highway where it sees a lot of time.

also, from what I remember, the General tires are heavier than the KO2s - food for thought

I use Cooper Discoverer AT3 or ATX on our fleet of 3/4 and 1 ton pickups that run mostly highway but are in mud several days a week for work sites that are off road. We get 50-60K out of a set. Very Good tire for around $200-220. Nice highway drive quality.
