    Have a truck that needs tires, I believe the size is 245/75-16. It's a 3/4 ton chevy..... What's everyone using? My uncles have always used Firestone transforms but I think they are junk and want to try something different.

    I use the ones that cost me around a grand and no higher.

    Duratracks here, very pleased. They are holding up great so far. I will definitely be getting another set when the time comes.

    I agree, I will be getting another set. I've got 26,000 miles on mine so far. Holding up great.

    I think I paid $900 for them (after the $60 rebate mailed in)

    Blizzaks all the way. I run load range E. They grip the ice great, never get stuck or slide. I do take them off in spring.

    Go to google type in tires plowsite and try not to get overwhelmed with the amount of threads.

    I use 265 duratrac load E. They are great tires. They seem soft or squishy sometimes with a load but they are good over all.

    My 3/4 p/u I run the winter force...awesome! As a comparison, my 1 ton has Michelin M & S tires (brand new) I got mildly hung up twice in the 1 ton so far this season...never,not even remotely close in the p/u. Amazing what difference good snow treads make.
    My last p/u I had the blizzard...I felt they were even better than the winter force skins. Blizzard are very soft rubber though & wear very fast. Both brands must be removed as soon as soon as the weather breaks in spring

    I agree, my buddy has these tires and loves them. However if the OP is just getting one set of tires I would pick duratracs. Not everyone has the money or space for a second set of tires (like me for instance).

    I forget where he is located and how much bad weather he gets.

    A couple guys I know have hancooks and like them. Good mileage out of them too
