Default New Tires

After 68k miles, its time for new shoes. I've always run BFG ATs and will probably go with them again, but the new Toyo AT3s https://www.toyotires.com/product/open-country-at3 are very tempting. Has anyone seen them anywhere? If so, any opinions?

Been looking at the Toyo AT3s as they new ones are finally winter rated. They are still pretty new, so it will take a while to get more input.
The BFGs also seem to look a bit different nowadays, but still the tread looks very similar just the shoulders seem more aggressive.

Are you looking at LTs tires or just P rated?

Really good question. The E rated BFGs make for a pretty stiff ride and are a bit of overkill for a daily driver. My preference would be a C rated LT, but that doesn't seem to be available in either the BFG or Toyo. I was considering a P Metric for ride quality and mileage, but when you need the off-road option, you really need it (granite, lava rock, etc.) so I'll likely go for the E rated LT knowing they're stiff and heavy.

The next question, assuming the BFGs, do you select the snow rated or the DTs?
