Stock 20's Best Winter/All Around Tire

Looking to replace the stock LT285 60 R20's on my 2019 Ram 2500. I live where we get quite a bit of snow and run dirt roads occasionally. Thinking of either the BF Goodrich AT KO2's or the General Grabber A/TX's. Thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Bf at are junk imo.

Goodyear duratrac is what I just put on. Had on my last couple trucks and lasted good and wore real well. Better in snow and ice than the fallen will be imo.

Lots of different definitions for "best", but since you're not wanting winter only tires, studs are out of the question.
Yes BFG ATs are great in snow for about the first 50% of their tread life and then fall off, not unlike most other tires.
My personal favorite for "best" in snow, ice, deep snow and summer as well, on and off road is find a set of deep lug mud tires. Not talking swampers, just normal mud terrains. Sipe the treads, center rows only, not the outside row on each side of the tire.
Aside from the noise of mud tires when you're on dry pavement, they fit the bill as good as most any other tire, and do better in deeper soft snow than AT treads.
Goodyear Duratacs are about the close-est rendition of what I'm describing, without having them siped separately. Ran a set of those in the winter on the Western Slope and they were great as well.

07 5.9 Mega, G56, SB Single disk Ceramic clutch, OE 1 piece Al driveshaft, 60hp Industrial injectors, Triple dog, Glacier 2mic filter, BD exhaust brake, ATI Super Damper, BD steering brace, Firestone bags, Big Wig swaybar, 4th Gen 20s and some home made Stableloads.

I've had great luck on all my trucks with Toyo Open Country AT's. They are plenty quiet and get great traction in the snow. Putting a set of 35X12.50X20's on my truck tomorrow. I'll report back on noise over stock, but my experience has always been that they aren't much louder than stock.

I would think that the Toyo C/T could be better yet. At least I've had very good luck with that tire, and the snow performance is impressive.

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

I just put on a set of 285/70/17 General Grabber ATX's and they are a tank in the snow.
Highly recommended so far, tire rack has these tires rated #1 in winter/snow/ice.

I have the C/Ts on my truck. Here is far northern Vermont I have no trouble in the snow. I donít have studs so ice is still tricky to get around on.

If you can't find them on Toyo's web site, I can take one and post it.

I have snow, ice, dirt, and road salt all over my truck now. Unfortunately, it will be like that until spring so I am not taking pictures any time soon. Maybe someone else has some.
