    Anyone use these tires yet, saw them online and they look great but I have read mixed reviews on some four wheeler and jeep mags. wondering how they do in snow. I have mastercrafts now and loved them but time to replace them.

    From my experience if your looking for a good plowing tire you want narrow & tall, I like a 235/75 R 16 on my pickups. It increases the psi to the pavement giving you additional traction. The problem is running them year round they burn up quick, rarely do I get 20k on them. In an ideal world I would run two sets of tires, with the summer tire being closer to a stock or slightly wider than stock.

    yes they are the walmart tire. they look pretty aggresive and are supposed to be a generic duratrac tire which i hear good things about.

    Some claim that they are not the same construction as the regular Goodyears, have heard of hard to balance and other issues.
    Makes sense as the Samsung T.V. at Wal-Mart is not he same at Best Buy etc. That is why they are so much less expensive.
    On the other hand, I have friend that has them and they have been good for him.

    The Goodyear wrangler authoritys are a good tire. I had them on my 97 1/2 ton and my 07 3/4 ton plow trucks and they did great in the snow.
