this is choice basically between looks and preferance. they are both awsome tires and i have seen both do things that many would call imposible. i personally like the toyos better out of the two. but i wouldnt ever trade my bfg's for either!

Did you have your speedo corrected for tire size? besides the weight/mass of a larger tire you will also read slower so the MPG's are not as accurate

AT vs MT the MT will almost always have worse MPG

Allot of AT tires are better in Snow then MT's. Snow is a completely different animal then mud.

Yes I will get the speedo fixed with a edge tuner, my MPGs suck like 10 as it sits I don't drive it ( have a car for the moment to drive) I will be driving it as stated next month. I need either plugs or coils BAD! So basically anything above ten is great! Which one is Best in the snow I know they aren't great.
Thanks again

I have nitto trails and I love them and instead to replace with the same tire. They ride super smooth in town and hoghway. But when off road dig nicely and catch traction quick mine are even at 20%. And they are quiet on the highway.

Thanks for the info
What is your MPG? Did you get good wear, how many miles? Do they chip your paint I don't want flares however I love ( as I am sure you do) my silky black paint!

My personal favorite out of every tire i have had are hankook dyna pro AT's

Never drove the MT's of them but from people I know / online they are just as good. The AT's in the snow were miles ahead of my TSL's

To the guy who said the Nitto trails are quiet... what are you comparing them too? Granted all my experience with them were on diesel trucks... but they certainly not quiet. Although I have had louder tires then them.
