    We did a 240mi round trip pizza run once while we were on vacation. The place was closed on a random Wednesday when we got there. Ended up getting tanked at a winery and stayed the night. First time I've ever to pay for two hotels in two cities halfway across a state on the same night.

    52k is only OK?

    I'm on my second set of Hangkooks...paved, snow, ice, some offroad.

    I just got these...

    https://www.offroadxtreme.com/engine-tech/wheels-tires/cooper-discoverer-at3-xlt-tire-review/

    And I also came to the realization that the cooper product were really quiet. I saw no difference in noise between the street tire I was running and those pretty aggressive all terrain cooper. I was skeptical at first when I saw the review but now that I have them, I love them.

    For longevity... well this remain to be seen. I still see no wear but I am only 6k in... Future will tell

    I'm really picky with tires...product of growing up in the Northeast.

    I loved the M/S2s. But J is dead on...they've "moved away" from those to the Defender series. I couldn't get them for the 20s either.

    I've got the Defenders on my Expy and haven't noticed a difference from the M/S2s. (Full disclosure, I don't drive in winter weather anymore) Nevertheless, I still enjoy them.

    Anybody that runs all terrain knobby tires saying their quiet is deaf.

    I used to run the Michelin LTX tires on all of my SUVs, but they've gotten harder to come by lately. I put a set of Continental TerrainContact H/Ts on my 2020 Ram (22" wheels) and I think I just found my favorite new tires. I've got over 5k on them so far, and they killed it in the snow this past winter. They're quiet, track well on the highway, and I've seen no mileage penalty for them. I'll be putting them on my Expy this summer.

    As a side note, I had the TerrainContact A/Ts on my previous GMC Canyon, and while they rode very well, they ironically were not as good in the snow as the H/Ts, even though they were A/T tires (very mild A/Ts, but still). Go figure.

    What do you consider a “knobby all terrain tire”?

    Is it literally any all terrain tire or just ones that are really aggressive?
