Help me pick an all-terrain tire

Looking to get some decent all-terrain tires after doing some light off-roading recently and saw first hand the limitations of the stock Michelin Latitudes (18") that came on my 2015 Overland EcoDiesel. The Latitudes were not helping but the GC climbed up and over pretty much everything it came upon. In any event, I'm looking for tires to be used all year round - mostly warm Cali climate with occasional light snow in the mountains - and to be used primarily for on-road use with the occasional weekend adventure. As such, it has to be low noise on the road but still provide good grip when aired down a bit for some sandy hill climbs. Narrowed it down to a few choices:

BFGoodrich A/T KO2 (expensive; seems to be best of all of these for off-road)

BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A (made to be halfway between their street tires and their KO2s; maybe not great at either?)

Firestone Destination A/T (standard on Cherokee Trailhawk; heard is loud on highways)

Goodyear Wrangler A/T Adventure (heard good and bad; expensive; replacing the Silent Armor tires)

You left out a great tire - Cooper AT3s.

TireRack.com has a great amount of data gathered from owner surveys. Have you tried looking there?

I put the Hankook rf10 and can't be any more happier. I also put a set on my 2500 ram as well. Awesome tire.

Re: Help me pick an all-terrain tire

KO2 for sure. IMO they look the most aggressive, and with all the research and technology that BFG put into these new tires and from the initial reviews on tirerack.com, they seem to not only be the best looking but also have the best overall performance.

Re: Help me pick an all-terrain tire

Thanks for the tips everyone! Been researching the hell out of these things - reviews, comparisons on Tirerack, Youtube, etc. My wife thinks I am obsessed and have a problem - she is correct. Getting to the point where I can recognize the brand from the tread! Really digging the Coopers and Toyos suggested above - hadn't considered those but really like what they seem to bring to the table.

Re: Help me pick an all-terrain tire

The Toyo and the Nitto Terra Grapler G2 are both excellnt choices given your requirements, as are the KO2's. The Goodyear Duratracs that are being suggested are great tires, but definitely don't fit the quiet part you requested.
