I know everyone recommends the Wildpeaks AT anyone ever try any other brands? Mickey Thompson, Milestar Patagonias, Yokohoma Geolander, Pro Comps, BFGoodrick KOs etc. I am keeping factory rims and installing Eibach springs so hoping a 265/50/20 AT tire. Or are the wildpeaks the best balance between Highway and offroad?

Thanks,
Dan

This has been my impression based on many comments for awhile now. AT tires are always a compromise (as are most tires) so finding the right balance for "what you do" is the key. The percentage of people who do actual off roading is relatively light so a tire like the WildPeak that has really good highway characteristics is great for anyone that may do some off-road, but still wants to be comfortable and quiet for the majority of their driving.

I have had the Yokohama Geolandar on my Outback and they were quieter than the OEM tire, very surefooted in hail and massive rainstorm and felt good on softroad conditions. I am currently getting my Ascent new shoes and am picking the Geolandar again. They are also quite a bit lighter than the Wildpeak which is why I chose them in the first place.

I don’t do any off roading stuff and I can’t say anything about AT tires except for the BFG on my previous Trucks. I replaced the oem falken with continental crosscontact Lx 25. I like the tire so far better than falken

I have the Nokian Outpost APT. Good enough for dirt and gravel roads And they are great in the snow. They have the Outpost AT that is more of a true all terrain tire.

I bought the Yokohama Geolander for my 2020 Ascent Touring and have really liked them. I drive lots of highway for my work commute and it hasn't impacted MPG. They are a little louder, but we like the look. We also have a 2" lift on the vehicle, and got the biggest tires we could fit - I'd have to look at them to see what size we got.
