Tuesday, December 11, 2012 by Steve Huffman

Are you looking to get a little mud on the tires? Want to take your truck off-road? Do you need some better traction on those trails? Or maybe you just want a more aggressive looking tire. If any of these scenarios sound like something you've been looking for, Tire Rack has you covered with a wide range of On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires.

First and foremost, the most popular all-terrain tire in the category and considered the standard by many, is the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO. This tire has been on the market for many years, but still continues to impress. It features a unique and aggressive tread design, along with innovative siping to provide traction and handling without generating excessive noise. The tire will help you plow through dirt and sand with ease.

Another great tire in the category is the Firestone Destination A/T. This tire is designed to get you to your off-road destination. Whether it's that hunting spot or that camping site, the Destination A/T will give you total confidence in most conditions, including snow. With over 24 million miles reported, customers enjoy many features of this tire, including ride comfort, steering response and dry traction. Drivers enjoy the tire so much that it's currently the top-ranked tire in our Tire Survey Results.

Another highly rated tire in the On-/Off-Road All-Terrain performance category is the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor. As the name entails, the tire will get you almost anywhere while providing a quiet and comfortable ride. Wrangler Silent Armor tires are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol to identify they meet the industry's severe snow service standards.

As all three options are favorites among our customers, take a look at what some of them are saying about their experience with the tires:

"Love this tire! Gets me everywhere I want to go. Totally satisfied and will buy these again and again. I love to climb the hills that most say are too tough. I smile all the way up and back down. Thumbs up on this tire!  It even has the extreme weather stamp. What more could a person ask for?" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 1994 Toyota 4Runner 4wd (BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO)

"I racked up 54,000 smooth, quiet trouble free miles in all kinds of Michigan weather. This tire has been extremely quiet and it's just aggressive enough to satisfy the casual sportsman. These were great for driving to and from work. Then when things turned rough late in season, these tires glued me to the road, displaying incredible traction in rain, snow and ice. I just replaced them with a fresh set!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2003 Dodge Durango 4WD (Firestone Destination A/T)

"This tire has exceeded my expectations. I live in an area that is the last to be snow plowed and have never had a worry if I was going to get stuck. Mud? No problem, I get to my hunting ground easily. On the highway they handle the rain very well." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2008 Chevrolet Colorado LT Extended Cab 4wd Z71 Off-Road Package (Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor)

I have a stock 2003 GMC Duramax. I'm looking at replacing the stock tires(LT245/75 R16-load range E) I would like an equal heavy duty tire, but I would like to increase tire size, without any type of lift. How big of tire is safe to go without rubbing.

Hi Roger,
The stock wheel is only 6.5 inches wide, so you are using the largest size now, that will fit on the rim. If you were to go to a wider rim, you could use size 265-75-16 without any problem.

Jim, In a LRR 235/45R17 for the Volvo S60 T5, the quietest recommendations would be either the Continental Pure Contact or the Pirelli Cinturato P7AS Plus. -- Tanner@tirerack.com

Tom, Possibly, however we do not show that any 265/75R17 tires are currently manufactured. What kind of vehicle is this set-up for? -- marshall@tirerack.com
