Default best aggressive m+s tire on stock rims?

I'm looking for an aggressive m+s that will fit on my stock rims, any suggestions? I don't want to lift so it needs to fit stock height. I need a really good winter tire I live in Minnesota.

get goodyear duratracs, order them from 4wheelparts.com. The best price and have em put on at a shop. They are a a/t tire but perform like a m/t. Plus, they are the best for snow.

I remember reading that they are a softer compound and as such you shouldn't expect tons of miles out of them. Tire manufacturers are not required to provide treadwear ratings for mud/snow tires. The reason I went with my Firestone Destination A/Ts is because I saw them on multiple vehicles and was able to speak to the owners to find that they had 20-50K miles on them and they still looked brand new. I haven't tested them out offroad yet due to still needing ZR2 t-bars to clear them in the front (31's) but they feel solid.

Many people like the General Grabber AT2s as well, which were also in my top choices.

I would also look into the Mastercraft Courser A/Ts and M/Ts.

triple you are exactly right!

they are a soft compound tire, but in colder temps and up in the northern parts of the country the tire is perfect. Now I live in southern cali and 100 degree weather commuting 40 miles a day, my tires are wearing out fast!

forgot:
no problem bro, people helped me out so this is just returning the favor to someone who needs help.
Let me know what ya decided.

My girlfriends truck has the Firestone Destination A/T's and they are a solid tire. They work great on pavement and offroad and did good in the snow last year when they were even worn out and now she have a brand new set for this year. I pretty much did the same thing with my Dakota A/T's and cant wait for the snow this year! Both great tires
