2010 4x4 w; 235 75r 16's, need new tires mainly for snow, not many options

I have been looking for new tires for my stock 2010 4x4. Currently have 235 75r 16's. I like Goodyear tires, but I am not seeing very many options. Any concerns going to 245's? I like the 24+ mpg I get when I take it slow on the rural highways. Or any suggestions on something other than GY's? Hankook? This is mainly on the road, but snow can be a big factor in the winter.

How big of a factor is snow? How deep, how well does it get cleared, etc? If snow is that big of a factor, you should just get a second set of cheap steel wheels and put actual snow tires on so you can switch them out when you need to. With snow tires, skinnier is better.

I ran Michelin M&S II P255/70R16's on the factory rims of my stock 2010 4x4 Crew Cab. The size stamped on the stock wheels were 16x6.5Jx41. Did not have any interference issues and the tires filled the wheel wells nicely. It did however throw off the speedometer a little. Would show 61 on dash and 60 on radar.

Thanks for the replys.

Having a separate set of wheels/tires is not really an option, also, though snow is the major concern, I do want good performance in mud/dirt also.

I have looked at Hankook Dynapro AT-M, but reading the reviews on Tirerack, seen too many complaints about poor performance in snow and ice after tires get 20K miles on them.

Right now I am strongly leaning to sticking to Goodyears of some sort in 235 or 245 size.

24mpg, wow that's impressive. I'm looking to probably buy new tires for mine soon but mine has 15" wheels so I have lots of options. 265 75 r15s is what is has on it, doing the math they're basically 31 10.5 r15s. Tons of options in that size. These mastercraft courser axt tires from Walmart look pretty nice in a 235 75 16 size https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mastercra...688#about-item . Looks like mostly great reviews for the tires, especially the performance in snow and are very reasonably priced. The tires I have now have enough tread to last probably another 10K miles or so but they're a very mild tread and I'd rather have something a bit more aggressive, a nice all-terrain tire.

I recently bought the Mako Series 243 wheels by Ultra in 16x8 with a 10mm offset. Wrapped them with Toyo Open Country A/T II P255/70R16 tires. Have yet to get them in mud or snow. My local tire shop highly recommended them. Preferred purchasing local in case I have issues later on. I also saw the complaints on Tirerack about the Hankooks and chose to look at Toyo after that.
