Best Light Duty All Terrain Tire

If you lived in Maryland, had family in Pennsylvania and wanted an all-terrain tire for all season use and occasional off-roading, which of the following tires would you choose? You'll use it in snow but not very much or very often. You commute 75 highway miles daily so it can't be too aggressive, loud or heavy. (LT tires are out of the question). Thanks in advance.

2017 granite crystal Latitude ADII, 3.2, Uconnect 5.0 with 9 speakers, cold weather, safety and convenience, more to come.

Well, I live near Maryland and have family in Pennsylvania, and I have a Trailhawk, so when I replace them it will have to be with an A/T tire, for resale purposes and also just in case I want to do some wheeling. However, I would have to research them on tirerack.com, and then choose the one with the best combination of quiet, wet/snow traction, durability, and price. Maybe others have a preference right off the bat, but that is my only recommendation.

Why not the factory Firestone A/T? I've run two sets on my '08 Ford Escape, and will probably put them on my Trailhawk again when the time comes (unless it is actually mine by then, and not my wife's).

I have only had the Geolanders, out of that group of choices.
Not a bad tire at all. Not very aggressive though.

Ive been scoping out the Kumho Road Venture AT51 and the Falken Wildpeak AT3W myself. Both have great reviews so its going to be a tough choice. It might come down to price and convenience as tirerack is 10 miles from me.

That's good advice but according to Tire Rack the best is the Geolander followed by the Kumho with the un-listed Firestone in third. Problem is that the Hankook is unrated and Tire Rack doesn't carry Cooper or Falken. I'd prefer to buy the Coopers because they're made in the USA but only if they're good enough.

I should have included it but I was disappointed to learn that it's made in Canada instead of the USA. Of course only the Coopers are actually made in the USA.

It does seem that the Geolander is the least off-road capable of the bunch but better that than something too off-road capable and lousy on pavement. Thanks.

That's what makes my decision so tough. All these tires have great reviews and cost pretty much the same too. Must be nice to be so close to Tire Rack.

I just got a set of Cooper Discoverer A/T3 put on a couple weeks ago. I'll finally get to hit the dirt this weekend, so as of yet I can't attest to their off-road performance. But from their reviews they seem to do very well off road. I've put several hundred miles on them on the highway and city streets, and so far I'm very happy with them. I can't tell any difference in noise vs. my previous tires (touring tires), and their road manners are pretty good. On one highway in my area, the road is concrete with little grooves in it, and when I drive on this stretch of road, the road kinda carries me a bit. But on normal asphalt roads they drive great. We've only had light rain since I've gotten them, and they've been great on the damp road, but I haven't driven through puddles and standing water yet. Time will tell, but so far they are promising

I live in Maryland and travel to PA frequently. I get the snow requirements and occasional light off-road use.

Why are LT tires out of the question if you don't mind my asking? I was wondering what you didn't like about the OEM Firestones until I got to that part.

I just put AT51's on my TH and the Quiet is back after suffering for months wondering what it was in my drive train that's coming unraveled. The Firestone's were nice up to about 25K and unbearable at 40K, but I have to admit they were abused. At around $100 per tire I won't mind if the AT51's need replacing more frequently, time will tell.
Going off-roading for three days soon so will have a bit of experience with them to share.
