    Anybody have real-life experience with the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 3 - looking specifically at winter performance... decent?

    I might try Blizzak LTs for the winter. Reviews are limited but the gist is that they drive really well on snow and ice but have shit wear. Costco has them for cheap though and wear problems could have been limited to early production.

    Also ended up getting a smaller trailer, 4500 lbs dry so maybe 6k loaded. GVWR is still 7k though.

    I'm currently on Cooper Discoverer AT3 with half of the tread. Not sure if I should get Blizzaks as dedicated winter tires and keep Coopers for the rest of the year or get a set of Falken Wildpeak AT3W and keep them year round? Don't do a lot of hardcore wheeling, fire roads at best in summer and highway the rest of the year.

    If this thread has taught us anything it's that winter tires are winter tires and AT tires are not winter tires. So, do you want winter tires?

    Right now I am rolling on BF good rich all terrain TA K02 tires they say all-terrain but they also say that they are severe snow service rated. I don’t think that I will switch this winter

    The KO2 is the best non dedicated winter tire I have run.

    Eh, I'd say it depends on where you live and how frequently you drive on snow vs pavement.

    I religiously swap the the tires for Blizzaks on my wife's Tiguan when temperature drops to 35 at night, but her stock tires are street. We don't get much snow in the valley along I-15. (Or not often enough to make snow tires mandatory). Last winter I spent on Wildpeak AT3W mostly on highways and it seems a bit overkill.

    Currently on some Wildpeak AT3Ws on my 4runner and just about done after 50K. Looking to swap tires before winter comes. I've read about two posts for the Nokian Rotiiva AT Plus in this thread https://www.nokiantires.com/all-season-tires/nokian-rotiiva-at-plus/ Anyone else have any experiences? I live near the CA coast and drive up to Tahoe so unfortunately can't really do a full snow tire. I occasionally drive forest service roads but not a hard core offroader. Snow traction is my primary concern along with surviving the warmer temperatures of home. Anything else I should be looking at?

    Side note, anyone order tires from walmart? They seem to be one of two places with the size I need in stock of the Nokians (no good local dealers) but only ship to home not to store?

    50k is a good run. Didnít like the wildpeaks?

    Iíd look into an all weather tire like the nokian wr g4 if snow grip is important but canít go full winter compound. Will do somewhat better than rotiiva

    I run Goodyear ultra terrains in summer/and Nokian r2 studless in winter. Big fans of both

    I bought those tires as mentioned in that thread, but haven't driven on them yet. They're going to be my winter set for the truck.

    I ordered through Walmart and they were delivered to the local store. Made an appointment for installation, and the tire shop did it. I've had Walmart mount and balance tires for years, they're fine. They used to be a lot cheaper than Discount Tire, but not anymore - unless you buy the tires from Walmart, and then it's cheaper.

    The wildpeaks were great in fresh or softer snow but I found them a little lacking when it got packed down and icy. Highway noise also was not great which unfortunately is most of my driving. So was looking for something a bit less off-roady, hence the rotiivas. The wr g4's look interesting too. I have to be honest with myself about how much I actually get into something more than a rough gravel road and it ended up being not as much as I expected. I got the AT3Ws as my first tire after a move from the east coast and was a little optimistic about my free time.

    Edit: Looks like the wrg4s only come up to size 265/60R18. That's stock but I have 275/65R18 AT3Ws now so it would be a downsize.

    I had a set of Rotiiva's on a Tacoma Double Cab 4WD. They are good for one winter season with new tread. After that, not so great. They are good in wet conditions. I did some light off roadiing with them, and no issues. I changed them out after about 40k miles of mixed driving. I ended up getting a dedicated winter tire after a few slips and slides the 2nd winter.

    As we have all learned from this thread, a dedicated winter tire works better than an AT 3PMS designated tire in winter conditions.

    That may be fine for the first winterÖ but once they have some miles on them, the grip will rapidly deteriorate. I run them 3 seasons on my tundra and find they donít stop or turn very well on off camber slippery descents. Also If youíre used to running snows then youíll find the Ko2 are shockingly bad at these activities.

    Blizzaks go on my truck as soon as it starts snowing. I picked up a new set last year so Iíll be super grippy this winter!

    Huh, exact opposite of my experience with the KO2. I actually didnít buy winter tires the three winters I ran them. First time in a long time I didnít have a dedicated winter set up.

    Yeah, me too. Iím currently running Nokians in the winter though because I do more highway driving then and save the KO2s for summer. Makes em last longer too.

    Huh. The tires are new. This winter, I plan on driving the truck throughout the intermountain west, but with current tread I can't imagine any non-studded winter tires doing better than the K02.

    Wait, so like all tires when the tread depth decreases, the performance drops off? I'm shocked!

    This is true in new snow but that glazed hardpack that you get in the non-salted states is noticeably better with snow tires.

    Haven't y'all learned anything?

    The KO2 is the pinnacle of tire technology. Nothing out there compares.

    Granted, the KO2 does have the snowflake and does pretty well in snowy conditions. However,
    You might try to wrap your brain around it because a set of blizzak snow tires are night and day difference from the BFG, particularly for stopping and steering on slippery surfaces. It Has to do with the rubber compound on the snow tire. Itís extremely soft and grippy as you might imagine and it does a much better job in the scenarios described.

    I have done a direct comparison between the two on my tundra and the difference (even when the BFG were brand new) is significant. I live in Brighton and drive on steep, snow covered roads literally every day but yeah YMMV.

    And how heavily siped a true winter tire is. Take a look at how many sipes are on something like a Blizzak LT compared to a KO2.
