I have a 2016 Yukon 2WD. We get occasional snow where I live. The current tires are about gone. What is a really good all season tire I could use that will also go on snow as well? If it’s really snowy I usually take my wife to work in my truck but I’m talking about her driving in a snow dusting or barely covering the road. I don’t mind going aggressive in look if need be. Thanks in advance!

If you have the coin you really cant go wrong with Michelin. But have a hard time parting with that much so I usually end up with some sort of used rubber or the chinese clearance tires at the local sears auto ctr.

I have purchased many Michelin tires for 3/4 ton trucks, 15 passenger vans & passenger cars.

I have never accumulated enough mileage before they went out on age. They are prone to sidewall cracking.

I have also run BFG A/T tires. Nice tire, but soft & wear out quickly.

I'm going to look at Cooper fairly soon.

Check out any options you may have in your size for General Tires. Pretty good cost point and I put a set on the wife's old car, Nissan Sentra, years ago and she never had any issues in the snow with some good ol Generals all season.

I currently have Continentals on my 2011 Suburban, but it also 4WD so I don't need an aggressive tire to get where I'm going in the snow.

If you have deep pockets and going to keep the vehicle Michelin or Bridgestone, and for a more economy tire, look at maybe Generals or
Cooper tires. All 4 tire brands make an excellent tire for Yukons or Tahoes. You only live a 150 miles or so from me and I'm familiar with
Hwy 23 and the hilly terrain. I have a buddy in Knoxville,TN that owns a large tire store, his name is Bart call him @ 865-687-6061, and have
him give you quotes on those 4 brands of tires. that way you will have a ballpark figure. never know you might be driving to Knoxville.
Good Luck..

I look and read for quite a while before buying tires. Decided on the Cooper Discoverer AT-3 for the 4WD Sierra. Work pretty decent in 2WD but as you know they're light in the back and you'll have a lot more with the Yukon. Some weight would help out a lot in just 2WD mode, in 4 they're very good and wear very well also. 25k and "maybe" half used.
