OEM BFG Long Trails. No complaints, though their reputation around here is not top shelf. I'm all street, so my needs & wants are not as extreme. Have 21k on them currently.

Putting your yr & model of Frontier either in your signature or post will be helpful to other members who may wish to share their insights.

Depending on what model you have. Correct me if I'm wrong but the new Pro 4x and Desert Runners have Hankook 265/75/16 ATM All terrains... All the other models have 265/70/16 unless you have the S model which has 15" wheels with "all season" 235/75TR15.0 ...

My 2015 Desert Runner Crew Cab came with Hankook 265/75/16 ATM aka All Terrain tires... More aggressive tread but higher rolling resistance causing lower gas mileage. I do like the more aggressive look though..

"All season" tires look more like street tires..

Don't underestimate the Hankooks. They are a top rated tire. I've always ran BFG, Bridgestone, Michelin but decided to keep my money this time around and go with the HK ATMs..

P265/75R16 Bf Goodrich Rugged Trails, They were down to the wear bars at 70,000km. Replaced with P265/75R16 Hankook Dynapro ATMs which have been excellent.

My 2012 SV 4x4 king cab came with BFG Long Trails. I am not happy with them at all. I live very close to where I work, so I put very few miles on my truck. At 33K miles, the tires are shot. Tread depth is at the low end of acceptable and there is excessive checking and cracking. I rotate the tires every other oil change and religiously maintain tire pressure at 35psi. When I went into Discount to have a puncture fixed, the tech said I could get $40 per tire off of new BFGs or Goodyears due to the premature weathering and cracking. I need tires before the snow starts to fall, but I am undecided as to which tires. My manly man side wants something aggressive looking like BFG All Terrain KO2s or Wrangler Duratracs, but my logical side realizes that I spend 90% of my time on paved roads. I launch my boat on some dicey ramps and see the occasional two track, but I really need good tread life and good gas mileage. I do have a full set of spare factory wheels to mount some alternative tires on. I will do either a mud tire or a dedicated winter snow and ice tire. I am leaning toward stock size Cooper ATPs for most of the year and Blizzaks in the winter.

Running on mostly paved roads and winters with occasional snowfall of several inches, the best tires I've ever had were Michelin LTX MS/2's. They were quiet, had great traction in all kinds of weather and fantastic treadwear. I think they're currently being replaced by the Michelin Defenders. Consumer Reports always rates them at or near the top of their tire tests. They also have an all-terrain version if you need something for more off-highway driving.

Due to money limits at the time, I replaced them with Nitto Duro Grapplers. They were $200 cheaper for a set of 4. The Nittos are a good tire with good treadwear and traction, but they do have a much harsher ride compared to the Michelins. Nitto is a division of Toyo Tires.

My truck came with BFG rugged Trail 265/75-16. They are wearing very fast despite maintaining correct pressure and rotations. I will probably replace them with Michelins.
