    Make sure it's flat. You don't corner hard. And certainly no hills.

    The best tires are winter tires. Second best are snowflake rated tires. Ko2 are hard to beat for 99% of driving. Duratrac are a good alternative. I'm running them on my RV as the Ko2s don't make the skinny 31s.

    I've owned 4 sets of the ko2s (4 rigs) and 2 sets of Duratracs (2 rigs). Ko2 are quieter. Wear better. Bit stronger construction. Less rocks picked up in the tread. Both do great on road and snow. Both very similar in mud (which is just marginally less than MT tires - takes more wheel spin). Both are better than any MT tire overall.

    Some of the other tires I've run: Bias TSL Swampers, BFG KO, BFG KM, BFG KM2, Toyo MT, Toyo AT, ST Maxx, Destination MT, Goodyear MTR, Michelin and various others.

    Most more extreme tires like Irok or sticky tires are good for purpose built rigs... trailer rock crawlers. All tires are a compromise. Just need to decide what you value most.

    Can't go wrong with Duratrac and KO2. Both tires are very dependable off the road.

    No offense meant but I think our idea of a true off road tire probably differs a little.

    Update:. I bought the iroks.. Have them all mounted with DIY internal double beadlocks. Have a whole 60 dollars each into the locks. Now we just need some snow so I can actually try them.

    37 iroks radials at 3psi are amazing in the snow. At eight they are amazing in muddy rocks. Glad I went that way.
