Both AT3 and HT are good choices... Just don't even think about a MT or STT, they have almost no use in this region. Only good for visual appearance.

Cooper AT3 are the way to go forward in my opinion. Perfect for both off-road and on-road. I switched from BFG MT to Cooper ATR and the difference was hugeeeeee, no road noise, soft and their rubber compound is great.
Size is your choice but it's better to stay with 15/16 inch rim size that will give you tire options with bigger side walls and hence wider tread size when deflated.

Thanks for the info faisal, comment is much appreciated. Still on search for the tires here. Yokohama ATS, Cooper HT and ATR are the choices and yea the deduction of rim size will make a big difference for offroad use! :045:

Simple, Nitto has one tire recommanded for sand ...the dune grabbler and it's not easy to find in the country. You will find the M\S but they would not help in the sand.

i used to run these exact tires about a year back

http://www.nittotire.com/Tire/dunegrappler


they were great and had very cool side wall designs.... much appreciated when you see your tire tracks in the sand

unfortunately ...... i had to change all of them as i had THREE (3) flat tires in one drive in the desert!!!!! That is 3 different tires ..... not one tire having 3 flats

I believe that bad luck is a current record of flat tires in the almost4x4 record books!

changed to BFG's and never looked back!!!!
