From what little research I've done on AT tires here lately (past year or so), the GY Silent Armor seems to have rave reviews. It looks pretty sharp too. That's what I'd be going with if I were in the market for an AT. As mentioned, the BFG AT KO is arguably the best all around AT tire you can get, but I'd still get the GY as it looks better. Honestly, IMHO, you can't get a bad AT tire from any of the top manufacturers out there today and any bickering between what one will and will not do is splitting hairs. Show me a bad review on any tire and I'll go find you two rave reviews.
As silly as it may sound, from all the options you've been given here, I would literally pick the one I liked the looks of best. But, I don't do a 'budget' when it comes to tires...I buy what I want regardless. Tires are too expensive to get something you may be bored with or not like a few months down the road. Been there/done that...never again.
