    I'm really happy with my Nitto Dura Grapplers. Most of my road time consists of pulling my gooseneck and, other than a little tread squirm when new, they have been excellent.

    10k miles and they are hardly showing any wear.

    If you want snow and ice, I would suggest the BFG. They are probably the most popular tire among plow guys and have been out there for years. The Goodyears are not bad either but they won't do crap off road.

    The GY's will NOT get you 30k miles or even close to that for that matter. After 3 sets of those I switched Hankook Dynapro RF10's and couldn't be happier.

    ive got a set of 295/70/17 terra grapplers on my diesel f250. thye have had great treadwear as well as being pretty quite on the road and great in the snow. little over 30k on them and at least 50% tread left. 2 are a little more worn due to my alignment being off but very happy with them. got mine for 749 shipped to my door.

    I hope you didnt pay for the A/T continental tires like i did, I made the dealer put on a brand new pair of michelin LTX A/T2, Continental told me they dont even make A/T tires and thats what i argued with the dealer, i paid for something I didnt get. As for New tires check out tirerack.com. They have thousands of personal reviews for all weather conditions for there tires.

    I ran a set of Terra Grapplers for over 60k miles. A lot of those were towing FEMA trailers to and around New Orleans.

    Those tires seemed bulletproof to me. I got ONE flat in the 9 months I was working there. Most other guys had a tire repair man on speed dial or they had 2-3 spares in the bed of their truck.

    If you're going to pay the price for Michelin, got with the LTX AT2's. Very nice tire and I guarantee they last a while. Not a great snow tire, but very good all around. To save the most money, go with Hankook Dynapro ATM RF 10's. I had them on a Tundra. You'll get well over 30K miles, probably closer to 50K.
    For plowing, the GY Duratracs and Mastercraft MSR's are my favorite. But neither are a high mileage tire and I would only use them as a winter tire.

    i do a lot of the same type of driving and towing as you say you do and have had very good luck with bfgs, you can fit up 2 the 315/70/17 on a stock f250 you may have a little rub at full lock, and the price on that tire is about 200 a tire. if you wanna play it safe go with a 285/70/17 either way bfg is a homerun in my book

    I got a chance to try out my Dura Grapplers in snow and ice today.

    I was towing my gooseneck with a Cat 236B and was headed up one of the steeper hills in my area. The road had an inch of very slippery snow on it (40 car pileup 20 minutes after I went through) and I never had to put it in four wheel.

    If I really put the throttle down, I could break the rear end loose but the tires felt as good as any other tire I have ran.

    I wish I was empty just to see how they did with less weight on them.

    you'll have to contact the manufacturer of the tire directly, only they can give you some sort of warranty on the tire. But if they do and that's a BIG IF, they will only credit you towards another one of their products. Give em a call n c what happens. check out their website and click contact us for more info.
