    hmm.. thats an interesting question that seems to come up time after time. and alot of it has to to with what kind of work you do and what kind of weather conditions you see. if you see a lot of ice. you are going to want a tire that is siped (sp) so that it will grip on the ice as much as it can. where if you get only snow your going to want a good self cleaning tire. my self i run cooper stt's that i get siped and they seem to do the trick for me around the farm and plowing snow. then again im in the midwest. your up in canada..

    The only thing I have, and ever will run are Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo's. 265/75/16, or 285/75/16, I have bought 6 sets of both in the last 6 years. The guy I buy tires from has been selling tires for 30+ years and that what he runs. Just keep them rotated, but they are by far the best E load tire.

    Cooper ST. Awesome tread, 10 ply, good ride, and reasonably priced.

    Personally, I think you should avoid big lug agressive tread designs. SNOW Tires like Cooper M&S or Courser MSR have smaller lugs closer together with lots of siping. Snow sticks to snow, which is why these work so well. Studding helps. DO NOT buy General Grabber AT2. Poor traction, short lifespan. BFG ATs are the classic if you want to run them all year.

    2COR517, i beg to differ on your opinion. altho yours is yours and mine is mine. i just put on a new set of LT235 85 R16 Grabber AT 2's. On my F-350 SD because ive used both the BFG AT TA's and the Grabber's in the past. And i prefer the Grabber's over the the BFG's. especially considering the price diff.
