245/70 17 Tyre Review Highlights

BFGoodrich Long Trail TA Tour rated 87% while driving a Dodge Dakota
Driving on a combination of roads for 40 average miles
Got 40K miles on these after they came used with my pre-owned vehicle. Would estimate they had 50K-60K total life miles. Use was about half town and half highway. Worked great on dry roads, but were not the best in rain. However snow and ice was a nightmare and extremely dangerous on corners and hills. If snow/ice are not a concern then they would be nice year-round.

BFGoodrich Macadam TA rated 84% while driving a Isuzu Trooper 1997
Driving on mostly country roads for 20000 average miles
My vehicle is not on your list, so the wrong vehicle is shown!!

I have used these on my Isuzu Trooper (lwb) and have covered just over 20000 miles. The rears are now at their legal limit and the fronts are about 3mm. They have proven good in the dry, reasonable in the wet considering the weight on the vehicle, and have done reasonably well in snow, giving good feedback and inspiring good confidence.

Cooper Zeon 4XS Sport rated 83% while driving a Kia Motors Sorento EX 2.5
Driving on a combination of roads for 8000 average miles
Excellent tire, very good grip on dry, excellent grip on wet. The best rain tire (of course I'm talking about conditions where the temperature is above 3-4 ° C) I've ever used. I used it in conditions up to -5 ° C, of course without snow, they still showed very good performance. As for comfort and noise, the tire I have on the vehicle is very good. The only drawback seems to me a little bit faster wear. Before these tires had Hankook Dynapro HP and I crossed nearly 30,000 miles with them. I think that Zeon will not achieve this result.
I'm sorry if there are errors in the terms, English is not my native language.

Kumho Road Venture AT51 rated 77% while driving a GMC Envoy
Driving on a combination of roads for 8000 spirited miles
Bought these tires to replace a set of winter tires on my envoy. Needed a tire that would be able to work well in deep snow and ice, as well as be able to be used year round on highway and some of road use. The kumho's work extremely well in the snow and are above average for a winter rated all terrain on ice. I can consistently get up the steep hill before my apartment in 2wd, while my friends in their Ram with ko2s have to shift to 4wd and most cars just give up and take the longer drive around the hill. On the highway there is some road noise, but that is to be expected with an all terrain tire, and it certainly could be much worse. Generally rolling up the windows or turning the radio up even a tiny bit is enough to cover it up. For an suv that frequently sits at 5500lbs plus, they are surprisingly stable at higher speeds and quick maneuvers, with only a mild amount of squeal heard when pushed to their limits. Off road, these tires have been impressive. They climb loose rocks and sand easily, claw their way up steep inclines and will handle a very respectable amount of mud for a tire class that is not designed for deep mud use. I have gotten stuck with them once, however I can't really blame the tires for it. I got too confident with them and drove through a small pond, had a wheel slip off the ridge it was on and sank the frame into the muddy bottom. All said, I would rate these as being better than the ko2 in the winter and every bit as competent off road as them and any other tire in its class. After 8000+ miles of driving they have gone from 13/32 to between 11-12/32. Kumho is no longer the cheap alternative any more. The prices might have not increased much, but the quality sure has.

Bridgestone Dueler HT 684 rated 61% while driving a Toyota Land Cruiser Utility SWB
Driving on a combination of roads for 22000 average miles
The tyres were supplier with my 2018 Land Cruiser. I have just had my 3rd puncture in 22,000 miles and will not be sticking with this model of tyre again. For general road/highway driving, they are fine - fairly quiet, enough grip in most conditions and comfortable. Wear seems pretty good also - 5-6mm remaining after 22k miles. Unfortunately I don't think they are made for any off-road work - I do a lot of gravel and flinty farm tracks - simply not tough enough. Considering the tread pattern they are just about acceptable off-road (muddy tracks/fields etc) but nothing more than that.
