Not as many people running the Nittos because they are newer design, but I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. If I had a choice, I would trade the Toyos on my Jeep for the Contis. They are probably the best in the snow out of the three mentioned here and I even believe HemiShopJim made a 9 second pass with the Conti's! That's pretty impressive in itself! They will be my next set for sure.

Iv had the nitro motivos on since early Dec. Iv been drifting in a snowy parking lot. Over a snowy wolf creek pass. My parents driveway was 5 inches of packed snow and off to the side was 7 inches. The motivos did great wish I had some video of me going through the 7 inches as it was pure awesomeness. I had the toyos on the front before these and the motivos are better. I have the 275/315 set up to.

I did extensive research back in September comparing and contrasting, reading reviews, trying to find the best UHP all-season for the Jeep. At the time I had the Nitto 420s, but they weren't good in snow and a tad noisy...but overall I loved em. I was very intrigued by the Motivos, but they were so new at the time. Had to dig a bit for reviews, but was able to make the decision to get the Motiivos over the Contis and the Toyos. I believe the Contis are a good second choice esp if driving in snow is a consideration. I bought my Motivos in back in early fall and they have no weaknesses that I can find. Toyos were average at best in rain and snow, and the Conti DWS have a mushy sidewall as all their tires do, and I dont care for the lack of definition in steering response. In short, IMO the Motivos are the best UHP all-season tire for these Jeeps. Conti DWS and Toyos are also good tires, but in the $1k or less price range, you cannot beat the Motivos. Oh and cant forget to mention the 60k mile treadwear warranty.
