Had a scare on Tuesday when my well worn but very legal Maxxis Trepadors (not the ones you mentioned) let me down badly in the snow..Promptly put on my set of brand new BFG ATs and I'm happy again. Coped well in all the subsequent snow on and off road.

Probably not hugely helpful but it depends what you're after. BFGs aren't cheap but made a huge difference in this instance.

Pictures of the Bravos seem to show a slightly less aggressive tread but maybe photos are deceptive.

Well I was just looking at some ads for BFG AT's as I would like to get a new set..
a lot of the ads now call them "summer tyres" or are there summer and winter versions?
Is there somewhere people recommended to order them from?

My old style BFG AT's were excellent in the snow,
but they are very varied in tread depth and some have cracking between the treads.
Feel a bit like driving on new eyes is like driving with a full tank,
doesnt cost more in the end, but does give confidence.

Answering my own question for a recommendation..

Camskill Tyres, online,
camskill.co.uk
I have used them previously.
Just checked current price seems reasonable £117 each
(235/70/16)
and £15 for next day delivery of four.
Seem to remember the ATS charged me £25 for putting one tyre on last time,
(one that I had purposely bought elsewhere cheaper than they offered)
so make a saving and shop around getting fixed quote for that,
before you just cruise in somewhere and say put them on please!

I loved my Grabbers too in the past,
but I dont see them listed now,
not like they were anyway..
And not a lot cheaper.
Got a link to somewhere?

Ahh yes Camskill!
Just doesnt seem that we can search there by make,
on similar sites General Grabber AT3 are listed,
and marginally cheaper than BFG but not in useful size.
They are similar pattern not the same, less aggressive maybe.
