Would help to know more of what you want out of the tires. More than just "somewhat aggressive tread"

I also hate BFG AT's. Great for say the first 3 months. then crap IMO. Rubber way too hard but the flip side there is that they wear like iron.

I run the Nitto TG's personally and like them for what I do.

No one as mentioned the Yokohama Geolander A/T-S yet. Its quiet on the highway, good in the snow. AT style tread. Generally can be found on the affordable end of things.

But again tell us where you want them to shine.

Default forgot about those

don't know much about them, 'cept I think Robbie mentioned he liked them. I wanna say he's got'em on the 4runner and when I was BS'ing about tires one day, he recommended I add those to the mix when researching.

Wasn't a big fan of the BFG ATs I used to run on my '01 4Runner...I used to have a lot of issues running them in wet weather when I was stationed in NC. I have liked the Nitto TGs on the 100 and used to run the Yokohama AT-S on my wife's old Tacoma. Both worked well in CO winter conditions.

I run BFG AT's on the wife vehicle and I am not impressed. Same experiences with them as Wesintl has had. I currently run Toyo Open country MT's on the 80 and have been very happy with them. They are surprisingly quiet on the highway for an MT.

Another vote against BFG AT's. They are great until you know better. Kind of like first girlfriends.

I'd look hard at those Duratracs. Nitto Terra Grappler, too.

Michelin makes a great AT also. Kind of spendy but they are Michelins.

If you need another price check option, check out onlinetires.com...They have great prices but are kind of ghetto, you can always get a local shop to price match.

I also have BFG ATs, and I don't like them simply because to me they don't look as cool as my Big Horns.. The BFGs are a bear to balance and are heavy.

You might consider Maxxis Big Horns like Nakman has. They are actually pretty quiet and a guy did a test on them in the last overland journal issue. He has an 06 runner and said he got 18.81 in the highway with them. Same size as Tim's.

BFG ATs are the best. Solid manners on the road, very capable off road. Long lasting, too. Assuming I don't go for a freaskishly big lift, etc, I'll never run anything but BFG ATs.
