New All Terrain Tire from Nokian, Outpost AT

New all terrain option from Nokian. Called the Outpost AT.
Snowflake rated, deep 18/32 tread depth
I've had mine about a month and am pretty impressed.
I live very rural on a rough muddy road that gets tons of snow.
Pretty chunky in person, much more so than their existing AT called the Rotiiva, about equal in looks to my Falken AT3W but less aggressive than my Baja Boss ATs

Very quite and smooth, much better than the worn out duratracs that came off this truck. I don't think quite as good off-road as the Baja Boss, but that tire is amazing and the best I've ran in the mud and snow. Better than the Falken AT3W so far.
The new compound Falkens I have suck in the slick snow and ice. I had some years ago that were much better.
I used to love the AT3W, but no longer since the change.
One huge difference to the Baja Boss is weight.
This Nokian, despite being a LT275/70r17 (33") E rated tire, is very light.
From what I can find online this tire weighs 49.4 lbs
The same size Baja Boss is 65.5lbs!
This is noticable weight savings.
The Falken AT3W is 63lbs.

Not sure how Nokian pulled this off but we'll see if it affects durability.
I should find out as I am pretty hard on tires, this truck usually has 2,500lbs or so in the bed.
Another big plus is when I bought these last month they were around $200 a tire, saving me over $100 each vs most of the competition.
So far very pleased with them.

Looking forward to hearing how these work out for you; especially anything in comparison to the Baja Boss AT, as these are the two tires I’m down to selecting one, or the other.

I still like them fine. will have to see how the Nokians do when the deep snow and ice rolls around.
Gonna be hard to beat the Boss AT. That's my favorite tire ever.
I have those on my Tundra and they are simply amazing. I got stuck on my driveway with my Falken AT3W's on my other truck and the Baja Boss pulled around it, then helped pull it up the hill.

Good to hear. I’ve decided to stick with OEM size 265/70R16 for my Tacoma, which limits me to SL load with the Baja Boss AT, but I still think it’s the tire I’ll go with. There is a LOad E Outpost AT catalogued, but there are none currently available from any authorized Nokian dealer in the US, and it it unknown when that might change.

In what regard? I haven't crawled them to attest to stickiness, but I had an easier time than the park ranger negotiating a washout that closed the road I was at the back of---picture a football field of rock and boulder moguls after the creek got done reclaiming it. Otherwise, I've just pinched them between boulders on multi-terrain trails here and again and run them in generally rough country. Durability still seems to be there. When I've known I should check the sidewall after something questionable, they've been unmarred.

Differently, a week or so back, I took advantage of the light traffic, heavy rain, and long stud-ruts of standing water to learn I couldn't really hydroplane them. They evacuate the water back down to road really well.
