I saw the guy looking at M/Ts and while I am looking for new tires I realize that with as much highway travel as I do the M/Ts won't be the best choice for me. So I'm looking for suggestions a good performing aggressive A/T tire that will hold up in gravel and caleche (sp? the white rock on ranch roads). I'm not looking to break the bank because frankly don't have the capitol for it right now. I looked at the El dorados, any other suggestions/thoughts. All input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

BFG A/T's are still one of the best selling tires for your spec. Aggressive looking tire, but quiet and smooth on the highway. Lots of grip off road when needed. Best tire for your money though is likely the Firestone Destination A/T's. you can do 4 installed for $950 taxes in. Thanks to their troubled past, they are one of the most tested and inspected tire out there, and quality has become second to none. I switched to them last change and have no regrets. Absolutely silent on the highway, excellent in the snow and ice, and not a slip to be found when I'm pulling a couple tonnes of logs through the mud and rocks to stock the firewood cribs at the cottage.
Falken has a couple cheaper all terrains. Discounttiredirect.com offers free shipping. That's where I got mine.

I still swear by mastercraft courser at2s. Had them on my 98 and put them through everything and they wouldn't quit. Great all around tire. Ran them on gravel roads, dirt roads, mud holes, snow, slush, dry pavement, rain. Held up great in all conditions. Rarely had to use 4x4
