Ok, I need help on which tires to put on my truck for the winter. They have to be 315/75/16 tires, and have to look good (Agressive sidewall (Being there's alot of sidewall), and perform decent on the highway, little mud, snow, ice, sand, and gravel). I dont really care if the tire gets or is loud, as my truck drones slightly anyhow and i have a good stereo.

I was looking at the Fierce Attitude MT's mainly becuase of the price, but also was looking at Nitto Trail Grappler's, Nitto Mud Grappler's (Mainly for look's), Nitto Dune Grappler's, Kumho KL71 MT's, Pro Comp Xtreme All Terrian's, and Firestone Destination MT's. Those are basically what i am looking at, but am definitly open to all suggestion's from people that have had real world experience.

Prices around here range from $260 a tire (Fierce) up to $330 a tire (Mud Grappler's) at my local shop.

So, what does everyone suggest? I am leaning towards the Fierce because of the price being these tires are on 16's and going to be used from now until spring time when i buy either 20's or 22's.

I'm not familiar with all those tires, but generally speaking, no mud tires are going to work well on snow and ice. A great aggressive all terrain tire (more like a MT) that has the snowflake rating is the Goodyear Duratrac. Check them out.

Trail Trappists are not offered in a 315/75r/16 last time I looked. The Togo mt is a good tire that I have had good luck with, but it is on the higher end or the price range.

I just put duratracs on my truck for the winter. I read some good things about them in the snow/ice since Im getting a blade for truck I wanted a good winter tire. Cnd tire has the price on them that I could find.

I also wanted to ask you, I know someone that says their related to some Boreen's from Langenburg area I think. Their last name is Kitsch. Just wondered if you knew them.
