    Those do look like some decent M&S from Goodyear. Finally.

    x2. I hear many guys rave about the Workhorses, but I just don't see it. At least these have lots of siping, and small tread blocks. Look studdable.

    Plus they have nice big white letters on the side, which is super important.

    I do find it comical when someone buys something, and then ask if people have opinions/experience with them

    Would siping a brand new set of tires be worth it? Does it really make a big difference?

    There's no question that siping improves performanc in snow/ice. Do some searching on Google. There's a guy who used a skilsaw and utility knife on his Super Swampers.

    Im glad you find it comical....cause Im one for comedy, so its almost just as fun to burst your bubble....I did do my research...I compared styles, brands, load ranges, prices, talked to people at NTB, Sears, TireWarehouse....looked at other forums, read reviews...just because I didnt specify that I did my homework through other sources doesnt mean I went in blindfolded..lol...Im not sure who goes out and spends over $1000 and doesnt look into their purchase...loI...I was simply just trying to find if anyone on here has plowed with them, these tires have the "mountain snoflake" symbol, meaning they are rated excellent for winter traction, was wondering if anyone on HERE has had a set on their truck...

    These tires can be studded, you can get them studded right from good year...they have tons of siping on them, nice side wall treads as well...

    so next time you think its comical cause someone didnt do their homework...do your homework...its better to be a smartass then a *******!!..

    no hard feelings, just dont like people jumping the gun without the facts...maybe others ask about purchases...Im not one of em....I'll post pics guys when I get them mounted tomorrow.:drinkup::laughing:

    Your post indicated your only research was that they had gotten good reviews. Pretty easy to get a good review from Four Wheeler when you spend a bazillion dollars a year on
    advertising. Or Discount Tire when the markup is huge.

    I do agree they look good, and I truly hope you have good luck with them.

    I don't live in a bubble, so there isn't one to burst. Sorry. Better luck next time:D

    Huh, I was under the impression that you were the "toothless hick in a bubble".

    OP, chill out, it was an observation.

    PS I spent something like $1400 on tires that I didn't do any research on. Just sick and tired of the crappy 19.5's that are out there, so I figured I would give them a shot.

    just to re-itterate what I said in response, it was assumed that I had bought tires without researching them, not the case, or that I was brainwashed by some Discount Tire employee...haha...I didnt get a review in four wheeler, I read customer reviews on different forums and tire sites, talked to people who sell them, how many people have purchased them there, one place said he hasnt sold any, another said they are popular, I heard both sides of the spectrum with sales...like I said no hard feelings, and I hope I get good results with these tires too, thanks,...they are a very good looking tire..now if I can only get them on the truck...luckily I got a buddy who will throw em on for some beer and pizza...
