Default Suggested Tires for '15 GMC Denali Duramax Crew Cab?

I've been running Michelin LTX M/S (265/60/20) tires on my 2015 Denali Duramax for the past 150k miles (on 2rd or 4th set). The LTX are great on the highway, and perfectly fine in rain, but in snow and anything remotely offroad (even just including grassy field) they arent great, and force me to run in 4x4 if at all slippery. The LTX are still WAY better than the OE Goodyear Wrangler SR/A though, which were so bad they were almost unsafe.

Anyone have any suggestions on something a bit more aggressive for offroad/snow, but still good on highway (since im doing 35k/yr, much of it is highway)

These are all in the same class generally:

- Nitto Terra Grappler G2
- Cooper AT3 XLT
- Falken Wildpeak AT3W
- Toyo Open Country A/T2
- BFG KO2

I run the Nitto Ridge Grappler on my 2019 Denali Duramax. Aggressive sidewall and tread and not noisy. They are amazing tires.

I went from the BFG KO2s to the Nitto Terra Grappler G2s and never looked back. Plenty of grip for the light off road that I do time to time, and they aren't loud on the highway. They are wearing well on my Duramax, About 40,000 ,miles on them and lots of life left.

i find all pickups really suck in as little as an inch or 2 of snow unless you load the bed with some weight so dont be disappointed if it doesn't totally change it for you

with a bed full of blocks I can actually PLOW snow in my pickup in 2wd , no weight im sliding with an inch or 2 on the ground unless its super light stuff

really need to take tire advice from people in similar climates to yours or even worse in regards to snow fall amounts

i just put a set of cheapie Thunderer ATRs on my 2500 Ram diesel and for an aggressive tread they ride smooth and quite, no idea on tread life but if i get 30k it will be worth it, i can buy another set of 4 and still be cheaper than buying 1 set of Toyos/Nitto/BFGs

I like the Toyo AT2's but the Nitto is also a good choice.

I've had six different sets of tires on my duramax and the LTX michelins are what wears the best, head and shoulders better than anything else

I'd try a toyo R/T or nitto Ridge though if you wanted something more aggressive. If I can't get somewhere in my 4x4 duramax with the michelins, I probably don't have any business going there in a 8000lb pickup to begin with.

Huge Michelin fan myself, but the cost is a factor in high load range tires that are usually 50k or less rated anyway. I went with Dick Cepek this time, and am absolutely shocked at how well these ride. Far far better than the BFG's I pulled off, far more stable, quieter, just better all around. I don't drive a lot but when I do it's usually pulling weight and even with an oversized tire for my setup they are still amazingly stable. Most people see the tread and are in awe at how quiet they are. Zero slip but I don't push them anyway as the only reason I got a 4X4 was because it was actually less than an equivalent 2WD when I was shopping around. They seem to be gaining popularity amongst the lighter weight trucks since they come in a load range E and are more durable for rock crawlers and such but I have them on my 05 2500HD CC and they definitely do everything I need them to do.

Add the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 to the list above. Great tire, available in load range E and snowflake rated.
