I know this has been asked before, but I'm looking at the Toyo Open Country A/T or M/T's, Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor or Cooper Discoverer S/T or STT's. They're for 2006 Titan Le with the stock 18" rims. Use off road occasionally and in alot of snow. Stock 265/70/18 or 275/70/18's in an LT tire, Thanks

I vote for the cooper STTs. Not sure how they do in snow, but they do excellent in sand and mud. They're also very quiet, they ride nice, they last for a good 40,000 miles and they're pretty cheap too!

Yeah they may last even longer than that on a titan. My dad had em on his superduty that he tows a tractor trailer with a pretty big tractor and mini-ex on for like 35,000 then I had em on the titan for like another 5k or 6k miles. Yeah the tires aren't dirt cheap, but consderably cheaper than the Toyo MTs that have a very similar tread pattern.

Cooper Discoverer S/T are rated better in snow than the STT by Cooper's own ratings. More of a mud tire. Doesn't make sense why they wouldn't be better in the snow with those deep lugs. :huh: Let me check out the Mastercraft's snow ratings.

I couldn't find much on the Mastercrafts snow rating, but the lugs are deep with pretty big voids. All the lugs are siped and there is a center traction bar that is siped like the dedicated snow tires are. I'm betting it will be pretty good in the snow.

Tread depth is greater (not by much) on the Cooper Discoverer S/T 18/32 vs 15.5 on the Mastercraft Courser A/T 2. Might be a little better in snow? I'll have to find a dealer that carries both of them and compare them side by side. Anyone hear anything about the Goodyear Silent Armor's?

The ratings on the Silent Armors have all been good, just worried because my Wrangler SRA's have been so bad!

Ended up getting the Bridgestone Dueler AT Revos in 265/70/18. Friend of a friend is the manager at a local Firestone shop. Couldn't pass up the deal! :cheers
