Try milestar Patagonia tires they are getting really good reviews. And ppl are saying they are pretty good on snow and ice. Prices are very reasonable too.

The milestar tires are a great bang for the buck. They are cheaper because they are korean, but everybody I know with them has been happy.

What are these going on? 37's are a big step up from 35's.

You may want to consider the Toyo Tires' Open Country H/T.

Just priced 37x12.50x17 BFG All Terrain KO2s at 4wd.com. $1,299.96 before tax, ships free.
37x12.50x17 BFG Mud Terrain KM2s. $1,667.68, no tax, ships free.

BFG still offering up to $100 off set of 4 of the KO2s and KM2s. Which of course have a weaker sidewall than the 3s. But good deals nontheless. Procomp offering up to $250 off a set of 4 currently as well. I like the aspect of no sales tax and free shipping from 4wd.com.

Don't forget to check prices at tirerack and discount tire direct.

Personally I would get KM3's, not KM2's. KM2's are no longer being made. So if you wreck one, you will have to get a non-matching KM3.

I do somewhat agree with this. So order and extra one or two if you do go this route!

Where did you find four of them for that price? Everywhere I look they are almost 300 per tire.

But yeah, I like the STT (not sst) Pro tires. The S/T Maxx is also really good.

The airsoft method of balancing is typically only done for tires that are notorious for being hard to balance, or where the balance can change with temperature, which typically is bias ply tires.

For todays radials, its typically not needed. Well, with alloy wheels anyway. With steel wheels, which tend to have poor balance, the BBs may still work better than standard balancing methods.
