More Aggressive Look But Tame On the Road?

I ordered a '23 Limited and would like to swap the tires with something more aggressive looking. I'm not off-roading except maybe to pull a stump or haul something thru the woods (but not often). 95% on the road. I'm in Pittsburgh so they'd have to be decent in the snow.

In sum - looking for good road tire with meaner look. 🙂.

Any recommendations? Thanks all!

Look at the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015's. They have a more aggressive look, but not as "Knobby" as other A/T tires. They are very quiet and 3 peaks rated, so they will perform quite well in the snow.

I put 305/22R45 Toyo Open Country ATII on my ‘22 Limited which makes it looks a bit more aggressive but still drives very smooth on the road.

Take a look at the Nitto Recon Grapplers, they're a newer AT tire with the looks of the Ridge Grappler but designed to be more of a road tire vs the hybrid RidgeG. The Terra Grappler is also another decent option.

These are great. Thanks. Wish they had the snowflake but still looks good.

Cooper AT3 4S. I have a set on mine, couldn't be more pleased. Didn't kill the gas mileage, handle very well, quiet for an AT tire. Walked thru the snow and ice last winter without complaint. Rainey roads don't matter. They do OK off road, but they are not rock crawler, extreme mud tires. No regrets from my use and point of view.

If you want the snowflake, take a look at the Falken Wildpeak AT3/Ws, they're 3peak rated. I recently put those on my Jeep 392 to get rid of the garbage stock KO2s because at the time RGs were out of stock everywhere in 35x12.50r17. They are an aggressive AT tire but I've put a lot of highway miles on them so far and even towed a 16' open with a Sportsman and RZR on it for ~500mi and had no complaints on the noise or handling (yes at 75mph with the 392, no sway or worries and got 11.2MPG round trip...).

I agree. These are great tires. Had them on my last truck and tread wear was excellent and unlike other tires they were just as good 20,000 miles later as they were new. I had BFG KO2’s previously and although they were a nice looking AT tire after 10,000 miles the snow and rain traction was crap.

Thanks all. I had it down to the Cooper AT3 4S and the Falken Wildpeak AT3/W. Although the Coopers are very well reviewed, I'm leaning toward the Wildpeaks because they "look" better.

I had the Wildpeaks on my last truck. I never did anything more than light trails, but more highway miles than I cared to do and pulled a camper. Did great on everything including snow. Still had plenty of tread at 25k miles when I sold the truck.

Now I just need to decide on the size.... :)
Thinking about 305/45 R22 vs. 33x12.50 R22.

I think the Wildpeaks in 22 only come in 285/45R22, I also think 22s look ridiculous on a truck but to each their own.

Added: the Coopers only come in 275/45R22 or 285/45R22 as well. You CAN get the 305 or 33" in the Nitto Recon or Ridge Grapplers though.

If you like the Wildpeak, 285/45r22 is a bit under an inch less than 33" but it is narrower.


If you like the Recon Grapplers, the 305/45r22 are 50PSI max 8 ply and the 33x12.50s are F rated 12ply.


Toyo Open Country A/T III are 3 peak rated and come in both 305/45 and 33x12.50 in 22", the 33" are 65PSI max E rated 10 ply while the 305s are 50PSI max "XL" rated whatever that means.

The BFG KO2, also 3 peak rated, does come in 33X12.5R22 as well. It's an E rated 65PSI max 10 ply. I hate to recommend KO2s as I think they're loud, ride rough and wear fast but if you're stuck on 33"ish 22s with 3 peak you have like 2 choices, the Toyo and BFGs.

The Grapplers are nice but no 3 peak. Looks like the Toyo Open Country might be what I have to get. Thanks for the info!
