    I know this has been touched upon before, and I'm probably beating a dead horse with it, but which tires do you guys......and girls use on your plow trucks? I have a 2000 Ram 2500 Quad cab 8' bed with Kelly Safari AWR tires. They aren't too bad but they spin too easily, and slide too easy, and that's without a plow on the front. Just looking for a lil' input here, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    BF Goodwrench TKO I just bought them this year and I am very pleased when I plowing, I dont spin a tire, they look very agresive but they are not much louder on the highway, and they look awsome!:nod:

    Try the Blizzak 995 e rated truck tire-no studs, or the mastercraft courser-studded, or the nokian hakkapilita lt-10s, studded. all great snow tires, mastercrafts are the cheapest. haven't had to run chains yet.

    Dunlop mud rovers work well for me.
    Actually any mud tire with a softer tread compound I would expect to do better than an all terrain style tire.

    I had forever been a BFG All-Terrain fan....and still am......

    But I got a fantastic deal on Bridgestone Dueler AT's (Revo's)


    They are just as good in my opinion...and I got them for half the cost of the BFG's......

    The change in the tires with the REVO designation is pretty substantial...
