Just purchased the Continental Terrain Contact AT's in 285/45/22 which is stock replacement size for the 22'' wheels. As everyone who has a 22'' wheel knows, finding decent tires for this size wheel is not the easiest decision. I'm a former K02 and Duratrac user prior to coming over to Ram. I've researched multiple AT's including the Hankook Dynapro AT2's, the Bridgestone Dueler AT RH-S, the Toyo Open Country AT II, the General Tire Grabber APT, the Firestone Destination A/T2, the classic Nitto Ridge Grapplers, and multiple others that don't need mentioning. I've looked at all of these tires in different sizes and weighed the pros and cons of going bigger and decided to stay stock. After researching and comparing all these tires over the last few months, I fell in love with all the positives the Continental TC offers. It's seriously hard to find a bad review out there. I'm 95% on the road and 5% off. I was mostly concerned with maintaining near stock quietness (exceeded my expectations - may even be quieter than stock), on-road dry and wet performance, and snow and dirt performance. This tire eased my mind more than any of the others in these categories. Even though they are not "snow rated" (either sever snow service certification and/or carry the three-peak mountain snowflake [3PMSF] symbol), they perform exceptionally well in the snow-based on video reviews, paper reviews, and internet reviews, as well as the 9" of snow NEPA just threw down on us that let me put the tires to the test. I couldn't be happier. The look is not as aggressive as some of the other AT's, but that's partially because you're not getting much of a sidewall with the 22'' tire. Nonetheless, they do look much better in person and I'm looking forward to however many miles I can get out of them. If something changes, I will update this thread.
