Check out fallen wildpeak AT3. Very popular with jeep and light truck folk.

Have the AT-Ms on our 2018 F150 and have had to get used to them a little as well. for some reason they don't inspire the same confidence at 50 mph in light rain that I've had with other makes. After many reviews on different forums, all universally positive, I think there is something else I'm sensing. Maybe the F150 is lighter up front than my previous vehicles, maybe the 275 width is too wide, or maybe the steering a) throws the feel OR b) reveals a subtle reduction in grip at wet roads.... IDK - but I too don't like something about how they feel on wet pavement. Acceleration-wise, they are certainly better than any used goodyear I've received with other used vehicles, and feel similar to me to upper-tier bridgestones.

The AT-M feels like a harder compound tire (UTG grading is not consistent between brands), and feels similar to bridgestones. Coopers tend to be a little softer and that might help.

The AT-Ms have stepped treadblocks which put more rubber on the road but less space between tread blocks as they wear. I won't keep mine to the wear bars. BUT, they wear like iron so I expect they will last a long time.

I'm pretty impressed - these are really large tires. 32" OEM diameter, and yet they ride like glass, exhibit no shake even after 15k miles, and needed minimal weight to balance. Signs of excellent manufacturing.

You can probably tell - I have mixed feelings and have considered replacing them too.

I read somewhere that the empty weight for my extended cab F150 is right at 4800 lbs. All things considered, that's only 400 pounds more than a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee 2WD. The 2.7 L engine can't weigh that much either. It may be that there just isn't that much weight over the front end, especially for tires this wide.

The 2.7 actually is within a few pounds of the 3.5 and 5.0. 440 for the 2.7, 449 for the 3.5, and 450ish for the 5.0. The Iron block is heavy on the 2.7, and internally its built more like a diesel...

I've always marveled at that, what was the point then? wasn't to shed weight, that is for sure. [Yes I get it, diesel like torque, but EB was supposed to be for light towing and weekend warriors, where unloaded mpg was supposed to be a big deal.] Makes me wonder if there isn't some weight per hp (tq?) metric, like 1lb/hp should be expected.

That doesn't help the OP, since those tire lines don't offer the sizes for pickup trucks.

But Nokian does offer an all-weather tire for trucks, Rotiiva AT Plus

I’ve taken Michelin ltx ms2 and now defender ltx tires all over the western US for both work and fun. Snow/wet/off-road, they do just fine. AT tires end up being mediocre at everything.

Was in a similar situation as you recently. I bought Cooper AT3s, alot of bang for the buck. Didn't even use 4wd this winter, they bite.
