Great Post Thank you!
My Pathy technically doesnt need new tires since the old ones are still quite fresh looking at under 20k miles.. but I am toying with the idea of replacing them since they are all season light truck tires and I was thinking more of a trail tire or even an AT for my Pathy.
I also like the Hankook DynaPro ATM which I had on an XTerra in the past. They look great.. but I never challenged them in snow or moderate off road.... but my Bridgestone Rugged Trails did super well in the "snow storm of the century" in Northern Virginia a couple years ago where I was the ONLY car on the road for over an hour and drove thru unplowed roads with a foot to a foot and a half of snow in my 05 Xterra.
I was in 4x4 for the full 2 hours drive over snow covered public roads.
Thats why I am also considering what I call a "Trail Tire" vs a true AT. Not sure is thats really a tire class though..
Another consideration I really care about is puncture resistance as I am a a bit of a prepper and can't imagine changing a tire while I have no 2nd person to stand quard while the golden horde is approaching
I understand AT tires in general are more puncture resistant than any other class of tire.
Any Standouts in this area you can mention?or is the Cooper AT3 you mentioned pretty good in this area as well?
