So, it's an ad for realtruck.com disguised as an article in Car & Driver.

What were the metrics? How did other tires stack up?

Most media outlets are pushing/advertising something. :rolleyes:

I do enjoy articles like this... But it's important to note that advertising money is almost ALWAYS influencing the outcome from media sources like this.

I sell tires as a consultant for a medium volume offroad shop. I do tires on over 100 Jeep, Bronco and trucks every year. So it's just my opinion, but I do get to see what brands have balancing issues, out of round tires and need warranty replacements more than most people.

But it's still just my opinion... I'm going to give them "some" credit as the list is not far from mine.

They put the Ridge Grappler as best "on road" A/T. I disagree, it's the best off road A/T. But it's the absolute worst A/T in the rain. Wet weather traction is well below all of the other tires on their list. And it's not 3PMSF rated like the others.

They have the Toyo ATIII as the best all around A/T. I would list it 3rd... It does most things well, but not as good as some others in most categories.

The Falken AT3W is listed as best winter A/T. For me, this is the best all around A/T. It does everything in the top 2 of all the tires listed. Best winter, second best on road, second best off road, etc. Literally no weakness.

BFG KO2 as all around runner up... Good all around tire and yes, my runner up to the Falken. My biggest complaint is they run smaller than the other tires in like size comparisons. But they are good in winter, good on road and good offroad. Just not the top in any of the categories.

Then they have the LTX... Yes, it's the best on road, but it's an M/S tire and not to be confused with a true A/T.

They don't include my favorite "on road" A/T and that is the Cooper AT3 4S. It's the best on road A/T and doesn't give up too much off road. And it's also good in Winter. It doesn't look very aggressive, but it's a good tire.

The Mickey Thompson Baja Boss A/T is becoming more popular by the day and I think it's a good tire in all categories, but I find they ride a little firmer than the Falken or BFG, so not my favorite.

Just my opinion as someone that does a lot of tires... For what it's worth, In my Jeep club, I have the nickname "tire slut"....

Enjoy!!!!

Best tires depend on your use case and can depend greatly on if you are only offroading (i.e. trailered to the trail) or if you need to drive on the highway for a bit, or drive on the highway a lot.

Falkens are my favorite tires to date. I love their snow and wet weather performance. I had KOs and grabber ats previously.

Any thoughts on the Recon Grappler. My bronco is on road a decent amount but I also take it to the dunes and maybe some light trails. Seems like the on road ride would be better than some others but not sure if adequate for other stuff.

I have 34" recon grapplers on my f-150. No complaints, I have driven them in deep sand at the beach, rough national forest gravel roads, snow, etc, they perform great. And the dual sidewall pattern is unique, you can pick which one you want on the outside.
