    have you used those wide tires? I run 31x10.5's on my truck during the summer but found I was floating too much on the snow with them. I switched to a narrow snow tire and i'm much happier now.

    Either way, nice looking truck

    $38 each at the local cat dealer. Also the tires are brand new, have never used this wide of tire.

    Can't wait for the snow

    Sharp looking rig vincent! I'm curious to see the interior - how you set-up your control center.

    Very nice looking setup but like others have said you are going to want a set of skinnier tires for winter to cut through the snow rather than float on top of it. Those mud tires are great for just that, mud, not snow. Trust me on this one. I've tried to plow with wide tires before and just got frustrated after the first storm. Keep your current tires for the summer!

    I will finish the switch panel this week and get the pics. Im using the hand control from boss. Also added a "a pillar pod" to hold the volt meter and tranny temp gauge.

    Even though I agree on the tire comment, I couldn't pass the deal I got on them. Im sure a lesson will be learned the hard way here.

    As far as mileage goes, I really haven't had it on a trip so to speak yet, but around town, Im getting about 17. It has the I-5 with automatic, G80 rearend.

    Sick driveway rig. That's one of the best looking colorados/canyons I have seen.

    If you want a recommendation for an awesome cheap winter tire for that truck look into the Firestone Winterforce tires. Got mine @ sears last year for $68/ea. I put them on a cheap-o set of rims i picked up for $40.

    Nice ride, I showed my wife, she thought it looked pretty good, but she still won't let me hang a blade on her 07 Canyon. It was worth a try.:(

    I agree, this is the the first Canyon that has actually impressed me. Looks great! I ran a set of 33x12.50 SS TSL's on a K-5 Blazer w/ a 8' Fisher. Tires were ok for plowing, but definately not great. If you plow any off pavement or "soft surface" areas, be very careful until the ground freezes, these tires LOVE to dig!!! Best of luck this year.

    So I was gonna criticize this "Ad" for not having a sale price, until I realized you weren't selling! Care to reconsider?
