    Ok I know you guys don't like Super Swamper Thornbirds, but why? They say they are good in sand and snow, and thats usually where my truck spends most of its time. Also since the treads are close together, wouldn't it not have much road noise? I use my truck as my DD and I was looking for a tire with little to no road noise. Are the Thornbirds radial? I have BFG All Terrains right now and the are decent but will the Thornbirds be worth the it?

    not radial, not quiet, and I'd bet your all terrains are far better in snow. I've never met a person who had Thornbirds and liked anything but the look of them.

    I've got some 265/75R16 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZs on my '91 'Burb and love 'em. Quiet, great ride, especially for a load range "E" tire. Good in heavy rain. I'll let you know about snow this winter. Sand... well I do live in the Low Country.
