I did see a set of Toyo Open Country A/T tires today and they really look like they would perform well off road.  They are by far the most popular tires around where I live, partly due to the Les Schwab presence in the area.

Just as I was getting settled on the idea of the BFG KO2 tires I read a review about them likely not performing well in rain once you can't rely on tread depth to avoid hydroplane issues.

The Toyo Open Country AT is so popular around here that it would seem reasonable that it should handle the rain well.

The Cooper ATW is another interesting option.

Here's a link to a buddy of mine's rigs... He's got a set of Cooper STMaxx tires on his GX470... Which is pretty much a glorified Sequoia haha... Anyway, I really like the way his looks, and he's told me that the tires hold up well in the rain and snow.

That's true of every tire, and is why MT and true AT's tend to do better in heavy rain than highway biased tires do.  Did they give a depth at which this is supposed to occur?

Not much info. I know the MT and AT tires can rely on tread depth for rain while the passenger car tires have to rely on tread design.

I ran the cooper discover atp's before on my old dodge and liked them.   Currently have the bfg k02's on my tacoma.  Either way you will be happy.  I will personally go bfg again when the time comes.

There are lots of opinions on this.
Is there a way for us to pole the recommendations?

I realized today that my brother-in-law and his best friend both have Cooper AT3 tires on their trucks. The look decent in the size I need and they both like them. Cooper may be back on top.
