KO or LTX A/T2?

Which tire do you think will last longer? and have better snow traction? I drive mostly on road.

I'm going to be in the minority here, but I wouldn't go for the KO. I've had them on 3 different vehicles & they've done well in the snow until about half the tread is gone, but then really lose it after that. The biggest problem I've had has been with rainy/wet conditions. I've lost traction & control more times than I can even remember-enough that I'll never buy them again. Just wanted to throw out at least 1 negative before everyone starts writing how stellar the KOs are. Again, just one person's opinion/experience.

If you drive mostly on road and hardly any serious off-roading, I'd go with LTX. I've had BFG AT for a short time, and seen LTX...only in person. I guess LTX would be lighter, and still has pretty aggressive...deep tread. You might also get slightly better gas mileage with LTX.

I've had the stock BGF Long Trails and Nitto Terra Grapplers on mine and they both wore like crap. Lots of cupping on the outer side. (& the alignment is fine) When I switched to Michelins that problem seemed to be less. And the road noise went way down.
