    These are their Roughrider series, I'm thinking the M+S over the A/T would be a better tire because of the heavier thread! Anybody have any experience with these tires?? Thanks.

    I looked at them (especially when they had the buy one get one 1/2 price sale) but they couldn't get me the size I wanted.

    The only experience I have with Motomaster tires is car stuff, and they are cheap junk that I would never buy again. Not like Canadian Tire actually makes their own stuff, but I have had no success with their tires (or batteries for that matter)....

    Check out http://www.tiredefects.com/private_brand_tires/Default.htm

    This site tells what manufacturer makes different tires for different companies. There is also a list of law suits etc. on there. Doesn't hurt to read.....

    For cheap tires (in stock sizes only) I was looking at WalMart too... they have a decent looking truck tire and for a change it actually has a treadwear warrenty... 64k I think... cheap too, LT235/85R16's were around the $120 Cdn. mark each....

    The Firestones, and any other Mud Terrain tire that doesn't have siping for that matter, will work well on loose snow but will be terrible on any hardpack or ice. Best stick to M&S or A/T tires....
