    I would never buy anything But Michelin. They are balanced when you get them, last a long time, and grip like nothing else in all kinds of weather.

    I've tried all other brands on all kind of cars and trucks - Michelin is always consistently better than the others.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    if you do not ever want to get stuck in the snow, these are the best

    do agree with a top of the line Michelin as the best all around tire, they plant your vehicle on the road solid and wear extremely well

    Michelin in the best, but with all the weight I carry in my van, it does not matter what brand I buy, I only get 10 to 15k miles out of the backs, and 20k out of the front.

    I've run the BFG AT KO2 on my Expedition. Wonderful tire and wears like nails. Granted, you are trading off some road manners and they are just a touch noisier.
    Now, on my last service van (2013 E350) I ran the BFG Rugged Trails. I love that tire. Pretty quiet, handles well and had over 40k on them before the van moved on to another life.
    Edit: I should add that I live in the snow belt. It's nothing to get a foot at a time.

    My chevy express 2500 van has nokian rotiva at plus. These tire are awesome. Traction on snow and ice are amazing. When we had 20 " of snow last April my van was easily driving on unplowed side streets. They do very well in mud and are quiet on the highway. I will be putting my 3rd set on the van soon. I highly recommend them.

    BFG AT KO2

    Great tire if you have snow or gravel roads.
    My choice for paved roads and little to no snow would be Pirelli. Nothing against Michelin though. Awesome tire. For my vehicle the BFGs and Pirellis just handle better. no idea why. My wifes vehicle loves Continentals and Hankooks.
