I am looking for any recommendations on tires for my Pathfinder. I currently have Bridgestone Dueler H/T 689s and HATE them (awful in any wet weather, rain or snow!) They are 265 70 R15 and very tough to find. Why a 265 on a 15 I will never understand!?! I am thinking about the BFG radial long trails T/As or the Dunlop Radial Rover ATs. Also, someone told me I can put 31 10 50 15s on too...is that true? Someone else mentioned the Dunlop Rover tourings to me..but can't find any information on them....and "touring" makes me nervous for an SUV..should it? Sounds like a basic car tire?
Thanks for any suggestions!

You can use 31 X 10.50 X 15. At 65mph your speedo will only be reading about 2 mph slow. You'll really be going 67mph. You shouldn't notice much difference in performance and this size gives you some more options. I would have to recommend the Pirelli Scorpion ST or the Dunlop Radial Rover AT; both good tires and do well in all climates.

I bought my current Nissan with Bridgestone and I had it originally on my Zuki also, so I completely agree: Bridgestone is a disaster.
I wonder why are they still on the market?
Later I bought BFGoodrich M/T`s and I got a new car! They are just excellent!
If you go ON road take the BFG A/T.
