Tire Recommendations

Looking for some 17" tires that will work well here in Colorado. Don't really want to go for a Winter but instead a good AT that handles snow and Ice without being too loud etc

Let me know your recommendations

Thanks

I LOVED the Nitto Terra Grapplers. I had no issues in the light snow I encountered. They were super quiet much better than the highway Goodyears on the Titan.

I have no experience with them in ICE that I know of. Sorry! Did I mention that the on road ride was also better than the highway-rated Goodyears.

You'll need a studded winter tire or one of the Michelin X-Ice (alpin, alpin ICE also) to be good on ice...

Many states require studded tires to be removed from the vehicle after the winter season, in MT its Oct. 1 to April 30.

Studs are hardcore. I have not experience driving anything with studs. My hat is off to those that do.

Just imagine not sliding at all... they are very nice... they are noisier but if they keep you on the road they are worth it.

The best I found on my 94 Bronco XLT was Big O tires. They were their top line studded snow tires made for 4x4. Great tires in the Colorado snow plus they were quiet and smooth riding for a snow tire. There was some noise on the highway, but not crazy noise like you hear from some snow tires.
Had 4 sets and only once had a tire that did not seem to run right, But they replaced it no problem.
You don't get the mileage out of them as you would a normal street tire but the trade off in traction was worth it anyway. In Colorado you can run studded snow tires all year around as I seen it snow in July once at 10,000 Feet.
For many years I ran Good year ultra grip studded snow tires on a 73 T Bird with out a problem. But last time I checked they don't make them any more. Too bad, great snow tire.

If you go to TireRack and look at Passenger All Weather tire ratings ( http://www.tirerack.com/tires/survey...ay.jsp?type=AS ), you will see that the Goodyear Assurance Triple Tread got the highest ratings based on an enourmous amount of mileage.

All I can only find the Goodyear Fortera TripleTred in a 17" on discount tire. Is this the same tire or is there a difference. Does anyone know whether these come in the 265/70R-17

Tire Rack shows that it is the light truck version of the Assurance Triple Tread and it, too, had very high rating from purchasers. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....era+TripleTred for a description and ratings, and http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Spec.j...irePageLocQty= for size specs.
and http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Sizes....era+TripleTred for price ($169)

So I'm concluding that the Assurance Triple Tred is not available for our expys (17" anyway)
