Aggressive looking street tires

I want to get away from all-terrain tires as 80% of my life is on road with off road being beach sand/dunes and utterly shit Rhode Island roads.

So with that said, I need a tire thatís good in snow, quiet, and performs well.

Options? Opinions?

Thanks

Iím a big fan of the Nitto Ridge Grapplers in stock size. Have them on both of my 4Runners. Ride smooth, good in wet and snow, and look awesome.

Michelin Defender LTX. Fabulous street tire with very good rain and snow traction, plus very quite.

If you want something between the Michelin Defender LTX and the Nitto Ridge Grapplers, take a look at the Yokohama Geolander G015 A/T. It's pretty road oriented and still has the sidewall tread and gaps of an A/T. I've been running them in factory size for 10K and very happy with them.

Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S is worth taking a look at for what you describe. I have them on my winter wheels and they perform well.

Seems most manufactures are offering trial period now - run the new 4S for a month to see how they perform.

I sell tires for a living. Hands down the Michelin is better than the Bridgestone, in all conditions.

I have no experience with the older AT3s, but my 4S make no discernible noise over OEM tires on pavement. Of course they are relatively new and all ATs seem to get louder over time.

I absolutely did. And I solved it in increments:

Dobinsons suspension was a big help.
Lightly Sanding down the mating surface of my wheels (I'm machinist and all mating surfaces get cleaned).
My rotor(s) must have been out of balance because when I put all new on, the rest of the imbalance went away.

This ironically was an issue on my 08 tundra also. The rotors especially. I had a rear rotor that was not balanced. After several wheel rebalances...it was the rotors
