    Try looking up Green Diamond Tires (-Or do a search right here for many posts' on this tire). I just bought 4 of their Icelander AT's 265/70R/17, Load range E, for my F250, for $712, all inclusive -tax, mounting, balancing, new hi-press.stems and tire disposal (none). In Central New York the dealer prices were a lot less than their posted web-site prices. I REALLY like them so far, -about 400 to 500 miles on them so far. Good luck.

    Try Bridgestone Duellers w/ Revo. We put them on all our trucks after the original tires were gone, and were quite pleased with them.

    I liked the Revos too when they were new.
    But they became just a so so tire as they wore to the half way point.
    To big of a center rib to put them into the good category for a plowing tire.

    I rank them as fair

    They do take sidewall impacts very well and they don't seam to through up a lot of rocks or mud.

    I run the green diamond tires just in the winter. They have lasted about four seasons so far. They have held up great. I would also recommend General grabber at2. They look just like the BFG.

    What kind of mileage you guys getting out of the Revo's? I just turned 27k on mine, and I'll definitely need new ones before winter sets in. They were awesome tires, Im just not sure about the wear/price factor.

    I like the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor Pro Grade tires... The best snow traction of any tire I've ever owned (BFG KO's, etc.), and great all terrain performance. I bought a set a little over a year ago, and they will probably last this season as well...

    I just put on Nitto Terra Grapplers today. Ride nice very little noise. I heard alot of good things about them and heard they last long and are good in the snow. I guess time will tell.

    We do alot of highway, and get 80-100k (couple of years) on them before they're done. They've been a good tire for us.
