    245/75/17s on this F150 with studs 6ply nice plowing tire

    These are Marked Durango but I think Cooper is the parent company. They are studed and are a darn good plow tire as they clean themselves out every turn of the wheel ussmileyflag

    BFG ATs will last for eons. If you rotate them its not uncommon to see 80k plus out of them. ProComp ATs will also last 50k no questions and are GREAT in the snow.

    Bridgestone Dueler Revo's are well loved by our customers also. I never owned a set but have sold my cousin 2 sets for his ram 2500 and he got about 50k out of each set and when I drove his truck they were not that loud and preformed well.

    Whatever you do, stay away from hankook or other real cheep Chinese and Korean tires. Most of them have super weak sidewalls that will blow out easy if you hit a curb or put a lot of weight in the truck often.

    I just got a set of Michelin LTX A/T 2 E rated>. They don't have a really agressive tread pattern but they still work amazing in the snow. On the hwy they are very quiet and smooth. check them out on tire rack i think they got the second highest rating in there classification

    Keep hearing about these tires called Blizzark or something like that, anyone know anything about them as some of the posts I see them listing them on their trucks??

    There are 5 different types of blizzak tires for light truck. I think your best bet is to check out tirerack.com click on your size and they are usually rated buy multiple cutomers.

    Speaking from personal experience on my 2005 F-150, I wouldn't recommend the Revos. Yes, they were decent in the snow, but I only got 3 winters (non-plowing) out of the set of four. That's probably less than 25,000 miles. Needless to say, I was quite disappointed.
