Hi all,

I'm looking for tires for my '91 Toyota 4x4. I live in the hills of Colorado, and as such my primary concern is snow traction -- I currently have BFG Long Trails and they're just plain bad in the snow. I do some moderate off-road travel as well, so that's a consideration.

I've narrowed my search down to a few tires:
Michelin LTX A/T, Big O Bigfoot A/T, and Pathfinder ATR.

Does anyone have any experience with or recommendations of these (or similar) tires in the snow, off road and for general use (wear, road noise, etc.) I'd like to go with the Big O tire because of their great warranty and service -- they really stand behind their tires, in my experience -- but don't know if it's worth the extra $150 for the Bigfoots.

Your help is appreciated!

I live in Colorado too.
Here is how I would brake these tires down
Michelin LTX A/T: Is not really a off road tire but it is a good tire, Big O Bigfoot A/T: I think they are too expensive!! and Pathfinder ATR:??? Don' know.

I would recommend the Pirelli Scorpion A/T tire. Less expensive, Good for 4 wheeling and great for snow and ice.
That's what I have. http://skidplate4x4.tripod.com/My_Montero_Sport.html

Thanks Steve. I actually found the Scorpion A/Ts on the Web after I posted my message. With your endorsement of them, that may be the way I go.
