    needing a new set of tires on my truck its an 04 f150 4x4, currently has kelly brand tires on it size 275/65/18. As we all know tires are not cheap and the ones I have on the truck now came with it their starting to get low on tread not at the wear bars yet however with plowing I prefer to not be pushing the limits of the tires and end up stuck or not able to push the snow!

    I do a decent amount of driving year round highway and city, plus plowing so want something that will serve all purposes. ONe guy recommended the Hercules terra trac what I am understanding is that they are a little more of a snow tire but everybody that has them drives them year round with no issue, keeping them regularly rotated everything is fine from highway to plowing...plus I can get a set of them for $664 installed taxed out the door.

    thoughts on these or any other tire that would be good?

    I have put on quite a few hercules tires They are decent but dont last as long as a more expensive tire.

    I have had Terra Trac tires on my GMC 2500. I think they are good tires.

    I have the same tires on my truck for the last year. I like them, great snow / off road tread, no noise at all. A bunch of people have told me they like the aggressive tread design. I have bought a bunch of Kelly Springfield tires too and never had a problem with them.
